2. As a source, select Yandex.Direct:
3. As a destination, select Google BigQuery:

5. Select or add new access to a Google BigQuery account where you want to store the exported data:
6. Select a Google BigQuery project and create a dataset you want to upload your data to (or create an existing one):
Note: To setup the data collection successfully, your Google account must have the “BigQuery Admin” role in the project where you want to collect data to. Without this permission, BigQuery won’t let you upload the data.
7. Specify the date that marks the beginning of the period you want to upload cost data for:
You can schedule the start of the import on a date in the future or select a past date to upload historical data from the Yandex.Direct account.
Also on this step, specify the VAT rate to exclude from the exported costs. You need this to have your Yandex.Direct cost data consistent with the cost data form other services where VAT is being excluded automatically.
8. Click Create pipeline.
Done! The pipeline will be uploading data to a partitioned table in the selected BigQuery dataset. The data will be uploaded daily — for the previous day.
OWOX BI will also update the data already uploaded to BigQuery if the data in the Yandex.Direct account would change retrospectively. The update period for historical data is 21 days. This means that 21 days after the import, the data in BigQuery will be totally up-to-date.
The table data schema is in this article.
Important: The beta version of the Yandex.Direct → Google BigQuery pipeline currently does not process utm parameters from the links shortened by any link shortener such as Bitly, clck.ru, Tiny URL, or any other.
