New Features

SQL Syntax for Enabling the ORGADMIN Role — Preview

With this release, we are pleased to announce the preview of a new ALTER ACCOUNT … SET IS_ORG_ADMIN syntax that allows an organization administrator to enable the ORGADMIN role within a specific account, without contacting Snowflake Support.

Once the ORGADMIN role is enabled for an account, organization administrators can log in to the account and use the role to perform organization-focused tasks like listing and creating accounts. Enabling the ORGADMIN role in an account also allows queries to access data in the ORGANIZATION_USAGE schema.

For more information, see Enabling the ORGADMIN role in an account.
