Specify nested and repeated columns in table schemas  |  BigQuery  |  Google Cloud (2023)

This page describes how to define a table schema with nested and repeatedcolumns in BigQuery. For an overview of table schemas, seeSpecifying a schema.

Define nested and repeated columns

To create a column with nested data, set the data type of the column toRECORD in the schema. A RECORD can be accessed as aSTRUCT typein Google Standard SQL. A STRUCT is a container of ordered fields.

To create a column with repeated data, set themode of the column to REPEATED in the schema.A repeated field can be accessed as anARRAY type inGoogle Standard SQL.

A RECORD column can have REPEATED mode, which is represented as an array ofSTRUCT types. Also, a field within a record can be repeated, which isrepresented as a STRUCT that contains an ARRAY. An array cannot containanother array directly. For more information, seeDeclaring an ARRAY type.


Nested and repeated schemas are subject to the following limitations:

A schema cannot contain more than 15 levels of nested RECORD types.
Columns of type RECORD can contain nested RECORD types, also calledchild records. The maximum nested depth limit is 15 levels. This limit isindependent of whether the RECORDs are scalar or array-based (repeated).

Example schema

The following example shows sample nested and repeated data. This table containsinformation about people. It consists of the following fields:

  • id
  • first_name
  • last_name
  • dob (date of birth)
  • addresses (a nested and repeated field)
    • addresses.status (current or previous)
    • addresses.address
    • addresses.city
    • addresses.state
    • addresses.zip
    • addresses.numberOfYears (years at the address)

The JSON data file would look like the following. Notice that the addressescolumn contains an array of values (indicated by [ ]). The multiple addressesin the array are the repeated data. The multiple fields within each address arethe nested data.

{"id":"1","first_name":"John","last_name":"Doe","dob":"1968-01-22","addresses":[{"status":"current","address":"123 First Avenue","city":"Seattle","state":"WA","zip":"11111","numberOfYears":"1"},{"status":"previous","address":"456 Main Street","city":"Portland","state":"OR","zip":"22222","numberOfYears":"5"}]}{"id":"2","first_name":"Jane","last_name":"Doe","dob":"1980-10-16","addresses":[{"status":"current","address":"789 Any Avenue","city":"New York","state":"NY","zip":"33333","numberOfYears":"2"},{"status":"previous","address":"321 Main Street","city":"Hoboken","state":"NJ","zip":"44444","numberOfYears":"3"}]}

The schema for this table looks like the following:

[ { "name": "id", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "first_name", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "last_name", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "dob", "type": "DATE", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "addresses", "type": "RECORD", "mode": "REPEATED", "fields": [ { "name": "status", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "address", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "city", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "state", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "zip", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" }, { "name": "numberOfYears", "type": "STRING", "mode": "NULLABLE" } ] }]

Specifying the nested and repeated columns in the example

To create a new table with the previous nested and repeated columns, select oneof the following options:

  2. In the query editor, enter the following statement:

    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS mydataset.mytable ( id STRING, first_name STRING, last_name STRING, dob DATE, addresses ARRAY< STRUCT< status STRING, address STRING, city STRING, state STRING, zip STRING, numberOfYears STRING>>) OPTIONS ( description = 'Example name and addresses table');
  3. Click play_circle Run.

Query nested and repeated columns

To select the value of an ARRAY at a specific position, use an array subscriptoperator.To access elements in a STRUCT, use thedot operator.The following example selects the first name, last name, and first addresslisted in the addresses field:

(Video) BigQuery Nested and Repeated Fields - Live Example

SELECT first_name, last_name, addresses[offset(0)].addressFROM mydataset.mytable;

The result is the following:

+------------+-----------+------------------+| first_name | last_name | address |+------------+-----------+------------------+| John | Doe | 123 First Avenue || Jane | Doe | 789 Any Avenue |+------------+-----------+------------------+

To extract all elements of an ARRAY, use theUNNEST operatorwith a CROSS JOIN.The following example selects the first name, last name, address, and state forall addresses not located in New York:

SELECT first_name, last_name, a.address, a.stateFROM mydataset.mytable CROSS JOIN UNNEST(addresses) AS aWHERE a.state != 'NY';

The result is the following:

+------------+-----------+------------------+-------+| first_name | last_name | address | state |+------------+-----------+------------------+-------+| John | Doe | 123 First Avenue | WA || John | Doe | 456 Main Street | OR || Jane | Doe | 321 Main Street | NJ |+------------+-----------+------------------+-------+

Modify nested and repeated columns

After you add a nested column or a nested and repeated column to a table'sschema definition, you can modify the column as you would any other type ofcolumn. BigQuery natively supports several schema changes such asadding a new nested field to a record or relaxing a nested field's mode. Formore information, see Modifying table schemas.

Additionally, you can manually modify a schema definition that includes nestedand repeated columns. For more information, seeManually changing table schemas.

When to use nested and repeated columns

BigQuery performs best when your data is denormalized. Ratherthan preserving a relational schema such as a star or snowflake schema,denormalize your data and take advantage of nested and repeated columns. Nestedand repeated columns can maintain relationships without the performance impactof preserving a relational (normalized) schema.

For example, a relational database used to track library books would likely keepall author information in a separate table. A key such as author_id would beused to link the book to the authors.

In BigQuery, you can preserve the relationship between book andauthor without creating a separate author table. Instead, you create an authorcolumn, and you nest fields within it such as the author's first name, lastname, date of birth, and so on. If a book has multiple authors, you can make thenested author column repeated.

Suppose you have the following table mydataset.books:

+------------------+------------+-----------+| title | author_ids | num_pages |+------------------+------------+-----------+| Example Book One | [123, 789] | 487 || Example Book Two | [456] | 89 |+------------------+------------+-----------+

You also have the following table, mydataset.authors, with completeinformation for each author ID:

+-----------+-------------+---------------+| author_id | author_name | date_of_birth |+-----------+-------------+---------------+| 123 | Alex | 01-01-1960 || 456 | Rosario | 01-01-1970 || 789 | Kim | 01-01-1980 |+-----------+-------------+---------------+

If the tables are large, it might be resource intensive to join them regularly.Depending on your situation, it might be beneficial tocreate a single table that contains all the information:

CREATE TABLE mydataset.denormalized_books( title STRING, authors ARRAY<STRUCT<id INT64, name STRING, date_of_birth STRING>>, num_pages INT64)AS ( SELECT title, ARRAY_AGG(STRUCT(author_id, author_name, date_of_birth)) AS authors, ANY_VALUE(num_pages) FROM mydataset.books, UNNEST(author_ids) id JOIN mydataset.authors ON id = author_id GROUP BY title);

The resulting table looks like the following:

+------------------+-------------------------------+-----------+| title | authors | num_pages |+------------------+-------------------------------+-----------+| Example Book One | [{123, Alex, 01-01-1960}, | 487 || | {789, Kim, 01-01-1980}] | || Example Book Two | [{456, Rosario, 01-01-1970}] | 89 |+------------------+-------------------------------+-----------+

BigQuery supports loading nested and repeated data from sourceformats that support object-based schemas, such as JSON files, Avro files,Firestore export files, and Datastore export files.
