System Functions (System Control)
Enables Database Replication for a specified account in an organization. Once an organization administrator (user with the ORGADMIN role) has called this function to enable Database Replication, an account administrator (user with the ACCOUNTADMIN role) can promote local databases as primary databases and create replicas (i.e. secondary databases) of these primary databases in accounts in other regions.
Call the SQL function once for each account in your organization for which you are enabling Database Replication. This includes each account that you intend to contain a primary or secondary database.
SELECT SYSTEM$GLOBAL_ACCOUNT_SET_PARAMETER('<account_locator>', 'ENABLE_ACCOUNT_DATABASE_REPLICATION', 'true');
Locator of an account for which you are enabling Database Replication. Retrieve the set of accounts in your organization using SHOW ORGANIZATION ACCOUNTS. The SQL command returns details about each account, including the account locator.
Only organization administrators (i.e. users with the ORGADMIN role) can call this SQL function.
When Database Replication is enabled for an account using this SQL function, the SHOW REPLICATION ACCOUNTS output includes the account.
If you have more than one account with the same account locator in different regions, to enable replication, contact Snowflake Support.
The following example enables Database Replication for the
SELECT SYSTEM$GLOBAL_ACCOUNT_SET_PARAMETER('myaccount1', 'ENABLE_ACCOUNT_DATABASE_REPLICATION', 'true'); SELECT SYSTEM$GLOBAL_ACCOUNT_SET_PARAMETER('myaccount2', 'ENABLE_ACCOUNT_DATABASE_REPLICATION', 'true');
