Hello Qlik Users!

An issue has been identified for Qlik Replicate users when using Google Big Query as the Target Endpoint. The load may fail if the dataset is outside the US and the region is not set for the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.

The current workaround is as follows:

  1. Open the Big Query endpoint definition
  2. Click on the Advanced tab Internal Parameters
  3. In the search box for the parameter name type (case sensitive):




For its vale enter - select count(*) from region-eu.INFORMATION_SCHEMA.SCHEMATA where SCHEMA_NAME = '${TABLE_OWNER}'​



          4. Save and restart the task.

Note: The above script will force Qlik Replicate to query with the syntax of ‘region-eu’. Please use the relevant region value.

For more information, please see Unqualified INFORMATION_SCHEMA queries views will default to returning metadata from outside the US.
