Schemas:

ACCOUNT_USAGE , READER_ACCOUNT_USAGE

LOGIN_HISTORY View

This Account Usage view can be used to query login attempts by Snowflake users within the last 365 days (1 year).

Details about the error codes/messages for login attempts that were unsuccessful can be found in the following documentation:

Columns

Column Name

Data Type

Description

READER_ACCOUNT_NAME

TEXT

Name of the reader account for the user authentication event. Column only included in view in READER_ACCOUNT_USAGE schema.

EVENT_ID

NUMBER

Internal/system-generated identifier for the login attempt.

EVENT_TIMESTAMP

TIMESTAMP_LTZ

Time (in the UTC time zone) of the event occurrence.

EVENT_TYPE

TEXT

Event type, such as LOGIN for authentication events.

USER_NAME

TEXT

User associated with this event.

CLIENT_IP

TEXT

IP address where the request originated from.

REPORTED_CLIENT_TYPE

TEXT

Reported type of the client software, such as JDBC_DRIVER, ODBC_DRIVER, etc. This information is not authenticated.

REPORTED_CLIENT_VERSION

TEXT

Reported version of the client software. This information is not authenticated.

FIRST_AUTHENTICATION_FACTOR

TEXT

Method used to authenticate the user (the first factor, if using multi factor authentication).

SECOND_AUTHENTICATION_FACTOR

TEXT

The second factor, if using multi factor authentication, or NULL otherwise.

IS_SUCCESS

TEXT

Whether the user’s request was successful or not.

ERROR_CODE

NUMBER

Error code, if the request was not successful.

Error message returned to the user, if the request was not successful.

RELATED_EVENT_ID

NUMBER

CONNECTION

TEXT

Name of the connection used by the client, or NULL if the client is not using a connection URL. Connection is a Snowflake object that is part of Client Redirect. It represents a connection URL that can be failed over across accounts for business continuity and disaster recovery. . , NOTE: If a client authenticates through an identity provider (IdP) that is configured with the account URL rather than the connection URL, the IdP directs the client to the account URL after authentication is complete. The CONNECTION column for this login event is NULL. See Authentication and Client Redirect.

Usage Notes

  • Latency for the view may be up to 120 minutes (2 hours).

  • INTERNAL_SNOWFLAKE_IP/0.0.0.0 appears as the client IP for login events triggered by internal Snowflake operations that support your usage. For example, when a user accesses a worksheet in Snowsight, because worksheets exist as unique sessions, Snowflake creates a login event that originates from INTERNAL_SNOWFLAKE_IP/0.0.0.0.
