  • Accessing Google Analytics 4 BigQuery data using Python

    Posted by Jayendra on 28 August 2023 at 4:48 pm

    How do I access GA4 big query data using python? There is a section in the following article -http://googleanalytics4.co/data-science/accessing-google-analytics-4-bigquery-data-using-python/#ga4-connect-using-python that explains. It says # 1. Import necessary libraries to connect to google BigQuery and get Query results in pandas
    import os
    import pandas as pd
    from google.cloud import bigquery. Question is how do I do this and where do I need to go to do this? Can anyone take a look and please let me know? Thanks!

    @Jay
    To connect to BigQuery using Python, you will need to start with an IDE e.g. Pycharm or Visual Studio Code.

    Assuming no prior programming experience, you can begin by :

    1. Download Pycharm or any other IDE of your choice.
    2. Write a simple Hello World program to make sure that your configuration is correct.
    3. Enable BigQuery API and create credentials
    4. Copy and paste the code from the article you referred with your own credentials.

    Let me know if you get stuck.
