Duration: 3 days, 14 hours, 37 minutes

Affected Services and Features:

Google BigQuery - Data Transfer Service

Regions/Zones: Global


Google BigQuery S3 Data Transfer Service experienced table validation failures globally, with the majority of impact observed in us-multiregion, asia-northeast1, and asia-southeast1. From preliminary analysis, the root cause of the issue was a rollout that started on 21 February 2022 at 01:00 US/Pacific. A rollback was initiated on 25 February 2022 at 08:29 to mitigate the issue in the most heavily affected regions (us-multiregion, asia-northeast1, and asia-southeast1) which was completed on 25 February 2022 12:01.

Customer Impact:

  • Transfer Runs for Google BigQuery S3 Data Transfer Service [1] will fail with an INVALID_ARGUMENT error if the following conditions are met:
    • The destination table in the Transfer Configuration contains a runtime parameter [2].
    • The rollback has not completed in the given region. Regions where we identified impact have been prioritized and rolled back already.

[2] -

Additional Details:

  • The rollback should complete across all regions by 01 March 2022.
  • Once the rollback completes, affected customers can retry the failed Transfer Runs to load any missed files.
