Becoming a Data Provider in a Data Exchange

In this Topic:


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 Granting Privileges to Other Roles.

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.

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 » Exchanges » the Profiles tab.

  4. Click the New Profile button.

  5. Complete the required fields. For the description of the fields, see Deleting a Provider Profile (In this topic).

  6. Click Save.

Editing a Provider Profile

You can edit a provider profile at any time. The profile updates are reflected for all listings associated with the profile.

To edit a provider profile:

  1. Navigate to Data » Exchanges » the Profiles tab.

  2. From the Manage drop-down list, select Update Profile.

Deleting a Provider Profile

You can delete a provider profile as long it is not associated with any listings, both published or unpublished.

To delete a provider profile:

  1. Navigate to Data » Exchanges » the Profiles tab.

    If the Delete Profile option is inactive, make sure no listings are associated with the profile.

Provider Profile Fields

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

Field Name




A high-resolution image of your logo in the JPG or PNG format. The file size cannot exceed 2MB. Square image is recommended.


Company Name
