# Create a connection
Google Big Query describes how to create a connection [here](🔗).
You'll need to provide us with your:
Service Account Credentials` in JSON
# Credential Requirements
Simon requires these [permissions](🔗) to execute BigQuery extracts:
BigQuery Data Viewer
BigQuery Job User
# Configure in Simon
You can test the connection to ensure the credentials were entered properly and are working. An error message will appear if the credentials are not working properly, with some hints as to why we may not be able to connect.
