Google BigQuery – how to drop table with bq command


Google BigQuery – bq command enable you to create, load, query and alter table.

I did not find any documentation regarding dropping table, will be happy to know how to do it.

I found the bq tool much easier to implement instead of writing python interface for each command.


Best Solution

found it :

bq rm -f -t data_set.table_name

-t for table, -f for force, -r remove all tables in the named dataset

great tool.
