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"
)

// printModelInfo demonstrates fetching metadata about a BigQuery ML model and printing some of
// it to an io.Writer.
func printModelInfo(w io.Writer, projectID, datasetID, modelID string) error {
	// projectID := "my-project-id"
	// datasetID := "mydataset"
	// modelID := "mymodel"
	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).Model(modelID).Metadata(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		return fmt.Errorf("Metadata: %v", err)
	}
	fmt.Fprintf(w, "Got model '%q' with friendly name '%q'\n", modelID, meta.Name)
	return nil
}

Java

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

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 getModel() {
  // Retrieves model named "my_existing_model" in "my_dataset".

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

  const dataset = bigquery.dataset(datasetId);
  const [model] = await dataset.model(modelId).get();

  console.log('Model:');
  console.log(model.metadata.modelReference);
}

Python

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