Browsing Data Listings

After you log in to a Data Exchange, click the Listings tab to view available listings.

There are two types of listings:

  • If it is a standard listing, click the Get button to create a database out of the shared data inside of your Snowflake account.

  • If it is a personalized listing, click the Request button to request access to the data. An email notification is sent to the data provider with your request.

Viewing Listing Requests

You can view all your requests in the Requests tab.

If the request is approved:

  1. Log in to the data exchange.

  2. Click the Get Data icon next to the listing.

  3. Enter the name for the database that will be created in your account from the share.

  4. Select roles that will have access to the database created from the share.

  5. Accept Snowflake’s consumer terms and the provider’s terms of use.


    As a data consumer, you must consume data exchange shares using the Snowflake web interface. Accepting terms using SQL is currently not supported.

  6. Click the Create Database icon.

Once you have created the database from share, the Get Data button is replaced with the View Database button.
