[RESOLVED] Aug 1, 2022: temporary permission access issue for IDC BigQuery content

IDC is experiencing permission access issue that prevents access to the idc_current BigQuery dataset.

While attempting to execute queries against that dataset, users will get error like the following:

Forbidden: 403 Access Denied: Table bigquery-public-data:idc_v10.dicom_all: 
User does not have permission to query table bigquery-public-data:idc_v10.dicom_all.

We detected this issue around noon Eastern time today. It is related to our preparation of the v10 release and onboarding of IDC data by the Google Public Datasets Program.

While we work on the resolution of this issue, the workaround for this issue is to temporarily query the v9 release explicitly instead of using idc_current. I.e,

  • replace bigquery-public-data.idc_current.dicom_all with bigquery-public-data.idc_v9.dicom_all in your queries

We will update this thread as soon as the issue is resolved.

The issue should now be resolved.

If you experience any permissions issues, please let us know.
