Support for Snowflake is provided as a Beta version, with a best-effort support.
We have a detailed howto for your first steps with SQL databases in DSS.
You might want to start with that Howto. The rest of this page is reference information for Snowflake
DSS supports the full range of features on Snowflake:
- Reading and writing datasets
- Executing SQL recipes
- Performing visual recipes in-database
- Using live engine for charts
Installing the JDBC driver¶
The Snowflake JDBC driver can be downloaded from Snowflake website (https://docs.snowflake.net/manuals/user-guide/jdbc.html)
The driver is made of a single JAR file
- Copy this JAR file to the
lib/jdbcdriver of DSS
- Restart DSS
Creating a Snowflake connection¶
As a beta-support database, there is not a dedicated “Snowflake” connection in DSS.
Instead, create a “Other databases (JDBC)” connection, and enter the following information:
- JDBC Driver class:
- JDBC URL:
- SQL dialect: Snowflake
Creating Snowflake datasets¶
To create a Snowflake dataset, you need to create a “Other SQL databases” dataset. You can also Import your tables.
