  • You cannot use multiple Google accounts to authenticate Google BigQuery in DataRobot. Once a Google user is authenticated via OAuth, that Google account is used for all the BigQuery data connections for that DataRobot user.
  • DataRobot does not support Service Account as the authentication method (except for batch predictions). For more information, contact your DataRobot representative.
  • If your Google account has a large number of projects, it may take a long time to list schemas, even if the project is filtered with the projectID parameter.
