Code Sample

Go

Before trying this sample, follow the Go setup instructions in the BigQuery Quickstart Using Client Libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Go API reference documentation.

import (
	"context"
	"fmt"
	"io"

	"cloud.google.com/go/bigquery"
)

// printDatasetLabels retrieves label metadata from a dataset and prints it to an io.Writer.
func printDatasetLabels(w io.Writer, projectID, datasetID string) error {
	// projectID := "my-project-id"
	// datasetID := "mydataset"
	ctx := context.Background()

	client, err := bigquery.NewClient(ctx, projectID)
	if err != nil {
		return fmt.Errorf("bigquery.NewClient: %v", err)
	}
	defer client.Close()

	meta, err := client.Dataset(datasetID).Metadata(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		return err
	}
	fmt.Fprintf(w, "Dataset %s labels:\n", datasetID)
	if len(meta.Labels) == 0 {
		fmt.Fprintln(w, "Dataset has no labels defined.")
		return nil
	}
	for k, v := range meta.Labels {
		fmt.Fprintf(w, "\t%s:%s\n", k, v)
	}
	return nil
}

Node.js

Before trying this sample, follow the Node.js setup instructions in the BigQuery Quickstart Using Client Libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Node.js API reference documentation.

// Import the Google Cloud client library
const {BigQuery} = require('@google-cloud/bigquery');
const bigquery = new BigQuery();

async function getDatasetLabels() {
  // Gets labels on a dataset.

  /**
   * TODO(developer): Uncomment the following lines before running the sample.
   */
  // const datasetId = "my_dataset";

  // Retrieve current dataset metadata.
  const dataset = bigquery.dataset(datasetId);
  const [metadata] = await dataset.getMetadata();
  const labels = metadata.labels;

  console.log(`${datasetId} Labels:`);
  for (const [key, value] of Object.entries(labels)) {
    console.log(`${key}: ${value}`);
  }
}
getDatasetLabels();

Python
