To connect to Google BigQuery using Satori use the Satori hostname that was generated by the management console which can be found under Satori Hostname in the data store settings view, for example:

Connecting with the JDBC Driver

The Simba JDBC driver for Google BigQuery is not yet supported.

Connecting with Python

To connect with Python set the api_endpoint field in the client_options parameter of the Client function. For example:

client = bigquery.Client(project=project, credentials=credentials,
        'api_endpoint': ''

Connecting with Java

To connect with the Google BigQuery Java SDK, call the setHost method on the object. For example:

BigQueryOptions.Builder builder = BigQueryOptions.newBuilder().setCredentials(credentials).setProjectId("<MY PROJECT>");
BigQuery bigquery =;

Network Policy Settings

Satori provides you with the ability to define your network security policy for your data store.


Simply, specify which IP addresses and subnet masks should be allowed access to the Data Store and which IP addresses and subnet masks should be blocked. Note that by default, Satori allows all IP address ranges if you leave the form empty.

Example 1

To allow all IP addresses - Leave the form empty. Screenshot

Example 2

To block specific IP addresses - Add them to the blocked IP address list. Screenshot

Example 3

To only allow access to specific IP addresses - Add them to the allow list. Note: Access from all other IP addresses ware blocked. Screenshot

Example 4

To allow access from a specific IP address range while blocking parts of the range - Add the IP range to the list of allowed IP addresses and add the IP address that you wish to block to the Block list. Screenshot
