jobs[].configuration.load.fieldDelimiter string [Optional] The separator for fields in a CSV file. BigQuery converts the string to ISO-8859-1 encoding, and then uses the first byte of the encoded string to split the data in its raw, binary state. BigQuery also supports the escape sequence "\t" to specify a tab separator. The default value is a comma (',').

The default value is CREATE_IF_NEEDED

Creation, truncation and append actions occur as one atomic update upon job completion.
jobs[].configuration.copy.writeDisposition string [Optional] Specifies the action that occurs if the destination table already exists.

The following values are supported: 
  • WRITE_TRUNCATE: If the table already exists, BigQuery overwrites the table data.

BigQuery converts the string to ISO-8859-1 encoding, and then uses the first byte of the encoded string to split the data in its raw, binary state. The default value is a double-quote ('"'). If your data does not contain quoted sections, set the property value to an empty string. If your data contains quoted newline characters, you must also set the allowQuotedNewlines property to true.
jobs[].configuration.load.schemaInlineFormat string [Deprecated] The format of the schemaInline property.
jobs[].configuration.load.schemaInline string [Deprecated] The inline schema. For CSV schemas, specify as "Field1:Type1[,Field2:Type2]*". For example, "foo:STRING, bar:INTEGER, baz:FLOAT".
jobs[].configuration.load.allowQuotedNewlines boolean Indicates if BigQuery should allow quoted data sections that contain newline characters in a CSV file. The default value is false.
jobs[].configuration.load.sourceFormat string [Optional] The format of the data files. For CSV files, specify "CSV". For datastore backups, specify "DATASTORE_BACKUP". For newline-delimited JSON, specify "NEWLINE_DELIMITED_JSON". The default value is CSV.

jobs[].configuration.dryRun boolean [Optional] If set, don't actually run this job. A valid query will return a mostly empty response with some processing statistics, while an invalid query will return the same error it would if it wasn't a dry run. Behavior of non-query jobs is undefined.
