Internal/system-generated identifier for the schema that the view belongs to.

TABLE_SCHEMA

TEXT

Schema that the view belongs to.

TABLE_CATALOG_ID

INSERTABLE_INTO

TEXT

IS_SECURE

TEXT

Specifies whether the view is secure.

CREATED

TIMESTAMP_LTZ

Date and time when the view was created.

LAST_ALTERED

TIMESTAMP_LTZ

Date and time the object was last altered. See Usage Notes.

LAST_DDL

TIMESTAMP_LTZ

Timestamp of the last DDL operation performed on the table or view.

All supported table/view DDL operations update this field:

  • { CREATE | ALTER | DROP | UNDROP } TABLE

  • { CREATE | ALTER | DROP } VIEW

All ALTER TABLE operations update this field, including setting or unsetting a table parameter (for example, COMMENT, DATA_RETENTION_TIME, etc.) and changes to table columns (ADD / MODIFY / RENAME / DROP).

For more information, see the Usage Notes.

LAST_DDL_BY

TEXT

The current username for the user who executed the last DDL operation. If the user has been dropped, shows DROPPED_USER(<id>).

For dropped users, you can join the <id> with the USER_ID column in the USERS view.

DELETED

TIMESTAMP_LTZ

Date and time when the view was deleted.

COMMENT

TEXT

Comment for the view.

INSTANCE_ID

NUMBER

Internal/system-generated identifier for the instance which the object belongs to.

OWNER_ROLE_TYPE

TEXT

The type of role that owns the object, either ROLE or DATABASE_ROLE. . If a Snowflake Native App owns the object, the value is APPLICATION. . Snowflake returns NULL if you delete the object because a deleted object does not have an owner role.

Usage Notes

  • Latency for the view may be up to 90 minutes.

  • The view only displays objects for which the current role for the session has been granted access privileges.

  • The view does not recognize the MANAGE GRANTS privilege and consequently may show less information compared to a SHOW command executed by a user who holds the MANAGE GRANTS privilege.

  • The LAST_ALTERED column is updated when the following operations are performed on an object:

    • DDL operations.

    • DML operations (for tables only).

    • Background maintenance operations on metadata performed by Snowflake.

    For views and tables, use the LAST_DDL column for the last modification time for an object.

  • The value in the LAST_DDL column is updated as follows:

    • When a table or view is created, the LAST_DDL timestamp is the same as the CREATED timestamp.

    • When a table or view is dropped, the LAST_DDL timestamp is the same as the DELETED timestamp.

    • Last DDL data is not available for operations that occurred before the columns were added. The new DDL fields contain null until a DDL operation is executed.

    • For replicated databases, the LAST_DDL and LAST_DDL_BY fields are only updated for objects in the primary database. After failover, the LAST_DDL and LAST_DDL_BY fields are updated for DDL operations for the tables and views in the newly promoted primary database. These fields will remain unchanged for objects in the now secondary database.

    • For objects in secondary databases that are newly created during a refresh operation, these fields are null.
