What are user permissions required to import cost data to Google BigQuery?

Important!Our service will not, under any circumstance, take any action for changing the settings of your account, campaigns, or banners.

If you notice any suspicious activity in your account, we recommend that you change the password for your account and update the access to the ad service in OWOX BI so that your pipeline works properly. If the password is changed, the pipeline is blocked until the access is updated.

Google BigQuery user permission

Before setting up the cost data pipeline into Google BigQuery (a cloud data storage), you need to check that:

  1. You have created a Google Cloud Platform project.
  2. Your Google account has access to the data in Google BigQuery. You can check user permissions by following this link.

If your Google account has the BigQuery Data Editor and BigQuery User roles, then everything is fine.


If the list doesn't contain your Google account or the roles are not assigned, add a new user to a GCP project and set up the required positions.

Also, you need to grant OWOX BI access to your Google account with the scope to view and manage your data in Google BigQuery.


Advertising platform user permission

For most of the advertising platforms, OWOX BI needs the read-only scope of access. With it, we can correctly collect the statistics and information about link tagging in your ads.

However, not all advertising services have the read data access level. For example, Facebook has some restrictions on data reading, so we need a different access level. OWOX BI requests the ads_management permission to import the raw data from Facebook into Google BigQuery.

Also, don't forget to grant OWOX BI access to your advertising account while creating a cost data pipeline from an advertising source. For example, for Facebook, you have a popup-window:

For example, for Facebook:
