Supported Partners

Important

Snowflake neither determines nor dictates the conditions or terms (length, supported features, etc.) for partner trial accounts; these policies are set by each Snowflake partner and vary according to the partner.

For details about a specific trial, please contact the partner directly.

Currently, Partner Connect includes the following partners:

Security Requirements

Partner Connect is limited to account administrators (i.e. users with the ACCOUNTADMIN role) who have a verified email address in Snowflake:

  • To use Partner Connect, you must switch to the ACCOUNTADMIN role or contact someone in your organization who has the role.

  • To verify your email address:

    New Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name » Profile. Add or verify your email address.

    Classic Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name » Preferences » General.

    In the User Information area, add or verify your email address by clicking the appropriate link(s) in the Email Address field.

Connecting with a Snowflake Partner

To initiate a trial account with any Snowflake partner currently in Partner Connect:

  1. Log into either the classic or new Snowflake web interface.

  2. Make ACCOUNTADMIN the active role in the interface.

    New Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name, then click Switch Role » ACCOUNTADMIN to change to the account administrator role.

    Classic Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name, then click Switch Role » ACCOUNTADMIN to change to the account administrator role.

  3. Open the Partner Connect page:

    New Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name » Partner Connect. The Snowflake Partner Connect page opens.

    Classic Web Interface

    Click on Partner Connect Partner Connect tab. The Snowflake Partner Connect page opens.

  4. Click on the corresponding tile for the partner to which you wish to connect.

    A dialog displays the requirements for connecting to the partner, as well as a list of the objects automatically created in Snowflake during the connection process, including an empty database, warehouse, default user, and custom role. The partner application uses these objects when reading from or writing to your account.

  5. Optionally specify one or more existing databases in Snowflake to automatically use with the trial. This creates an additional custom role that makes existing data in Snowflake quickly and easily available to the partner application.

    If you do not specify any databases during the initial connection process, you can specify them later; however, specifying them later is a manual task.

    Note

    Currently, shared databases (i.e. databases shared from provider accounts to your account) cannot be specified during the initial connection process. To use a shared database with a trial, you can specify it manually after the process completes.

  6. Click the Connect button below the partner description to initiate creating a trial account with the partner and connecting the partner application to Snowflake.

When the process is complete and the objects have been created, the partner tile is updated with a checkmark.

Objects Created for the Partner

During the connection process, the following Snowflake objects for the partner application are created in your account:

Object

Name

Notes

Database

PC_<partner>_DB

This database is empty and can be used to load/store data for querying. If you wish to use existing databases that already contain data, during the initial connection process, you can specify any non-shared databases to use in the field provided. You can also manually specify other databases after the process completes.

Warehouse

PC_<partner>_WH

The default size of the warehouse is X-Small, but can be changed if needed.

System User

PC_<partner>_USER

This is the user that connects to Snowflake from the partner application. As noted in the dialog, a random password for the user is automatically generated.

Role

PC_<partner>_ROLE

The PUBLIC role is granted to this custom role, which enables the role to access any objects owned/granted to the PUBLIC role. In addition, this role is granted to the SYSADMIN role, which enables users with the SYSADMIN role (or higher) to also access any Snowflake objects created for partner access.

In addition, if you optionally chose to specify one or more existing databases during the initial connection process, a second custom role is created with all of the necessary privileges to access the tables in the databases:

PC_<partner>_DB_PICKER_ROLE

This role is then granted to the PC_<partner>_ROLE, which enables all the tables in the specified databases to be used by the partner application with minimal (or no) additional configuration.

Note that this second role is not displayed in the dialog, but the role is created automatically after all the other objects listed in the dialog are created.

Tip

  • These objects are created to enable a quick, convenient setup. If you prefer to use existing Snowflake objects (databases, warehouses, users, etc.), you can update the preferences in the partner application to reference the desired objects in Snowflake.

  • An account administrator can use ALTER USER to change the generated password for PC_<partner>_USER.

  • To enable access to objects owned by (or granted to) roles other than PUBLIC, grant the other roles to PC_<partner>_ROLE.

Automated Application Features and Resource Usage

Partner applications may include automated features such as dashboards that run on a schedule and consume compute resources. We encourage you to read the product documentation for a partner application and to monitor usage of the PC_<partner>_WH warehouse to avoid unexpected Snowflake credit usage by the application.

Adding Partner IP Addresses to Network Policies

If you use a network policy to restrict access to your Snowflake account based on user IP address, partner applications will not be able to access your account unless you add the partner’s IP addresses to the list of allowed IP addresses in the network policy. For detailed instructions, see Modify an Account-level Network Policy.

The following table lists the IP addresses to add for each partner (if available and supported) or provides links to pages on the partner sites for this information:

  1. Click the corresponding tile on the Snowflake Partner Connect page.

  2. Click the Launch button to open the partner web site.

Disconnecting from a Partner Account

If you decide to discontinue a trial account initiated through Partner Connect for any reason, complete the following steps:

  1. Log into either the classic or new Snowflake web interface.

  2. Make ACCOUNTADMIN the active role in the interface.

    New Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name, then click Switch Role » ACCOUNTADMIN to change to the account administrator role.

    Classic Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name, then click Switch Role » ACCOUNTADMIN to change to the account administrator role.

  3. Open the Partner Connect page:

    New Web Interface

    Click the dropdown menu next to your login name » Partner Connect. The Snowflake Partner Connect page opens.

    Classic Web Interface

    Click on Partner Connect Partner Connect tab. The Snowflake Partner Connect page opens.

  4. Click the tile for the partner application you are disconnecting from. In the dialog that opens, note the names of the database, warehouse, system user, and custom role objects that were created for the partner application during the initial connection process.

  5. Use the appropriate DROP <object> command to remove each of the objects created for the partner application.

    Tip

    During the initial connection process, if you specified existing databases to use with the partner application, remember to also drop the PC_<partner>_DB_PICKER_ROLE role that was automatically created along with the other objects.

  6. Contact Snowflake Support to stop the partner account trial and remove the checkmark from the partner tile in Partner Connect.

Troubleshooting a Connection

Connection Already Exists

If your organization already has an account with the partner, initiated either with the partner directly or using Partner Connect on another one of your Snowflake accounts, initiating another trial account might fail with a message that a connection already exists.

In this case, the trial for this account must be initiated directly through the partner.
