# Create a connection

Google Big Query describes how to create a connection [here](🔗).

You'll need to provide us with your:

  • `Project Name`

  • `Service Account Credentials` in JSON

# Credential Requirements

Simon requires these [permissions](🔗) to execute BigQuery extracts:

  • BigQuery Data Viewer

  • BigQuery User

  • 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.
