Arguments

version

Version to define in your application package. If the version already exists, an auto-incremented patch is added to the version instead. Defaults to the version specified in the manifest.yml file.

Options

--patch TEXT

The patch number you want to create for an existing version. Defaults to undefined if it is not set, which means the Snowflake CLI either uses the patch specified in the manifest.yml file or automatically generates a new patch number.

--skip-git-check

When enabled, the Snowflake CLI skips checking if your project has any untracked or stages files in git. Default: unset.

--interactive, -i

When enabled, this option displays prompts even if the standard input and output are not terminal devices. Defaults to unset.

--force

When enabled, this option causes the command to implicitly approve any prompts that arise. You should enable this option if interactive mode is not specified and if you want perform potentially destructive actions. Defaults to unset.

-p, --project TEXT

Path where the Snowflake Native App project resides. Defaults to current working directory.

--connection, -c, --environment TEXT

Name of the connection, as defined in your config.toml. Default: default.

--account, --accountname TEXT

Name assigned to your Snowflake account. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--user, --username TEXT

Username to connect to Snowflake. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--password TEXT

Snowflake password. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--authenticator TEXT

Snowflake authenticator. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--private-key-path TEXT

Snowflake private key path. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--database, --dbname TEXT

Database to use. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--schema, --schemaname TEXT

Database schema to use. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--role, --rolename TEXT

Role to use. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--warehouse TEXT

Warehouse to use. Overrides the value specified for the connection.

--temporary-connection, -x

Uses connection defined with command line parameters, instead of one defined in config.

--mfa-passcode TEXT

Token to use for multi-factor authentication (MFA).

--format [TABLE|JSON]

Specifies the output format.

--verbose, -v

Displays log entries for log levels info and higher.

--debug

Displays log entries for log levels debug and higher; debug logs contains additional information.

--silent

Turns off intermediate output to console.

--help

Displays the help text for this command.

Usage notes

Note

This command does not accept a role or warehouse overrides to your config.toml file. Please add them to the native app definition in the snowflake.yml or snowflake.local.yml instead.

This command creates an application package (if it does not exist) with a version and an optional patch.

  • If you do not provide a version, the command uses the version specified in the manifest.yml file. If the version is not present in the manifest.yml file, the command throws an error.

  • If you provide both the version argument and the --patch option, and the application package does not already exist, the command throws an error. You should only provide the version argument to create a new application package with the required version.

  • If you provide both the version argument and the --patch option, and the version does not already exist, the command throws an error. You should only provide the version argument to create a new version with a predetermined patch 0.

  • If you are working in a git repository and execute this command, the command checks for local changes to your working copy. If it finds local changes, it prompts you to confirm whether it is safe to proceed. You can skip this check using --skip-git-check option.

  • If the application package does not exist, a new one is created by the Snowflake CLI is tagged with a special comment GENERATED_BY_SNOWCLI. It also runs any package scripts and uploads code files to the stage.

  • If the application package already exists and its distribution property is INTERNAL, the command checks if the package was created by the Snowflake CLI. If it was not, the command throws an error. If the distribution of the application package is EXTERNAL, no such check is performed.

  • The command warns you if the application package you are working with has a different value for distribution than is set in your resolved project definition, but continues execution.

  • If the version is referenced in a release directive for the application package, the command prompts you to confirm whether you want to create a patch on this version.

  • If the version already exists and you do not provide a --patch option, the Native Apps Framework automatically increments the patch number for this existing version. Else, it creates a custom patch under the version provided by you.

Examples

These examples assume you have made the necessary changes to your code files and added them to your snowflake.yml or snowflake.local.yml files.

If you want to create an application package and add a version V1 to it, use the following command:

snow app version create V1 --connection="dev"
Copy

You can also use the command above to create a version V1 on an existing application package.

If you want to add a patch to version V1 using the auto-increment functionality and invoke the interactive mode, use the following command:

snow app version create V1 --interactive --connection="dev"
Copy

If you want to add a custom patch called bugfix to version V1 and bypass the interactive mode even if you are in an interactive shell, use the following command:

snow app version create V1 --patch bugfix --force --connection="dev"
Copy
