BigQuery Error: “too many tabledata.list bytes per second per project”

If you hit this error, and did not find how to increase this quata this is the blog for you. The use case in question was Tableau server running against BigQuery, during LIVE connection got this error. This may happen in other BI tools as well.

The default quota set for the tabledata.list maximum bytes per project is 60 MB/second [1].

FYI you could contact GCP support on creating an internal request to increase the quota. Please consider that this request is handled for the BigQuery Engineering Team so this request may take around 3 and up to 5 business days.

I hope you find this blog usefull 🙂
