High performance API Driver for Google BigQuery

How to Get Started



API Query Component

The API Query component in Matillion ETL for BigQuery provides high performance data load from any JSON or XML based API, into Google BigQuery. The component converts the API into a pseudo SQL dialect that can then be queried in a similar way to any normal database. This data can then be copied to BigQuery by the component.

If you would like you connect to a custom API, please contact Matillion Support for further details
