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"

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

// addDatasetLabel demonstrates adding label metadata to an existing dataset.
func addDatasetLabel(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()

	ds := client.Dataset(datasetID)
	meta, err := ds.Metadata(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		return err
	}

	update := bigquery.DatasetMetadataToUpdate{}
	update.SetLabel("color", "green")
	if _, err := ds.Update(ctx, update, meta.ETag); err != nil {
		return err
	}
	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.

// Sample to updates a label on dataset
public class LabelDataset {

  public static void main(String[] args) {

      // once, and can be reused for multiple requests.

      // This example dataset starts with existing label { color: 'green' }
      Dataset dataset = bigquery.getDataset(datasetName);
      // Add label to dataset
      Map<String, String> labels = new HashMap<>();
      labels.put("color", "green");

      dataset.toBuilder().setLabels(labels).build().update();

    } catch (BigQueryException e) {
      System.out.println("Label was not added. \n" + e.toString());
    }
  }
}

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 labelDataset() {
  // Updates a label 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();

  // Add label to dataset metadata
  metadata.labels = {color: 'green'};
  const [apiResponse] = await dataset.setMetadata(metadata);

  console.log(`${datasetId} labels:`);
  console.log(apiResponse.labels);
}

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.


from google.cloud import bigquery

# Construct a BigQuery client object.
client = bigquery.Client()

# TODO(developer): Set dataset_id to the ID of the dataset to fetch.
# dataset_id = "your-project.your_dataset"

dataset = client.get_dataset(dataset_id)  # Make an API request.
dataset.labels = {"color": "green"}
dataset = client.update_dataset(dataset, ["labels"])  # Make an API request.

print("Labels added to {}".format(dataset_id))
