Becoming a Data Provider in a Data Exchange

In this Topic:

Considerations

The Data Exchange has the following requirements:

  • A full Snowflake account to provide or consume data sets; reader accounts are not supported.

  • By default, the ACCOUNTADMIN role can perform provider functions, such as creating a listing, creating a provider profile, reviewing listing requests, etc. These tasks can be delegated to other roles. For more information, see Data Exchange/Data Marketplace Privileges.

Configuring Your Provider Profile

When you join the Data Exchange as a provider, you must set up your provider profile. A provider profile is required for publishing a data listing.

You can also update this information at a later time by navigating to the Preview App menu item, the Provider Profile tab.

Note

At this time, you cannot update your provider profile once it has been attached to a listing, even after the listing has been removed. To update the profile, you must create a new provider profile with a different nickname. Once you update your provider profile in the listing, you must resubmit it for approval.

When you publish a data listing in a region you must associate it with a provider profile.

To create a provider profile:

  1. Log in to the Snowflake Web Interface as an ACCOUNTADMIN.

  2. Click the Preview App icon in the top menu. The Data Exchange opens in a new browser tab.

  3. Navigate to Data, Manage, the Provider Profile tab.

  4. Click the Edit button.

  5. Complete the required fields.

  6. Click Save.

The following table describes parameters required for creating and configuring your provider profile in the Data Exchange.

Profile Nickname

A unique nickname for the profile that is used as a profile identifier. The nickname is not displayed to the consumers. Since at this time, you cannot update your provider profile once it has been attached to a listing even after the listing has been removed, to update the profile, you can create a new provider profile with a different nickname. Once you update your provider profile, you must resubmit it for approval.

Company Name

Company name or brand name as it appears in the data listing. This is not the name of your Snowflake account. If the provider name includes special characters, these characters are parsed out in the suggested database name. The company name is the name of the provider profile. As a provider, you can have more than one provider profile (the provider nickname must be unique for each profile). When you publish a listing, you associate it with a provider profile.
