Code Sample

C#

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


using Google.Cloud.BigQuery.V2;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;

public class BigQueryListDatasets
{
    public void ListDatasets(
        string projectId = "your-project-id"
    )
    {
        BigQueryClient client = BigQueryClient.Create(projectId);
        // Retrieve list of datasets in project
        List<BigQueryDataset> datasets = client.ListDatasets().ToList();
        // Display the results
        if (datasets.Count > 0)
        {
            Console.WriteLine($"Datasets in project {projectId}:");
            foreach (var dataset in datasets)
            {
                Console.WriteLine($"\t{dataset.Reference.DatasetId}");
            }
        }
        else
        {
            Console.WriteLine($"{projectId} does not contain any datasets.");
        }
    }
}

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"
	"google.golang.org/api/iterator"

// listDatasets demonstrates iterating through the collection of datasets in a project.
func listDatasets(projectID string, w io.Writer) error {
	// projectID := "my-project-id"
	ctx := context.Background()
	client, err := bigquery.NewClient(ctx, projectID)
	if err != nil {
		return fmt.Errorf("bigquery.NewClient: %v", err)
	}
	defer client.Close()

	it := client.Datasets(ctx)
	for {
		dataset, err := it.Next()

		fmt.Fprintln(w, dataset.DatasetID)
	}
	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 listDatasets() {
  // Lists all datasets in current GCP project.

  // Lists all datasets in the specified project
  const [datasets] = await bigquery.getDatasets();
  console.log('Datasets:');
  datasets.forEach(dataset => console.log(dataset.id));
}

PHP

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

use Google\Cloud\BigQuery\BigQueryClient;

/** Uncomment and populate these variables in your code */
// $projectId  = 'The Google project ID';

$bigQuery = new BigQueryClient([
    'projectId' => $projectId,
]);
$datasets = $bigQuery->datasets();
foreach ($datasets as $dataset) {
    print($dataset->id() . PHP_EOL);
}
