I was following your tutorial on how to connect to GoodData here: https://help.gooddata.com/doc/en/getting-started-with-gooddata/getting-started-with-bigquery-and-gooddata/load-sample-data-from-bigquery-into-gooddata and it just says to fill in the required fields, but I'm not sure what to put in the "Private key" field and where to obtain the key in general. Any advice, please?

The private key is tied to your BigQuery service account. Each service account is associated with two sets of public/private RSA key pairs that are used to authenticate to Google: Google-managed keys, and user-managed keys. You can find more information in the articles below: https://cloud.google.com/bigquery/docs/authentication/service-account-file, https://cloud.google.com/iam/docs/creating-managing-service-account-keys. Once you have your Private key, please fill in the whole string in related field.
