Becoming a Data Provider in the Marketplace

To become a data provider in the Snowflake Data Marketplace, you must go through a one-time approval process which involves the following steps:

Considerations

The Snowflake Data Marketplace has the following requirements:

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

  • You must hold the ACCOUNTADMIN role to perform provider functions, such as creating a listing, creating a provider profile, reviewing listing requests, etc.

Step 1: Submit a Request to Join the Snowflake Data Marketplace

At this time, the Snowflake Data Marketplace is available to all non-VPS Snowflake accounts hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure, with the exception of Microsoft Azure Government.

If you are interested in becoming a provider, you can request access via the Snowflake website.

Tip

You can skip this step if you have already submitted a request.

The Snowflake Data Marketplace is accessible in the Snowflake web interface by clicking Data Marketplace in the top menu.

Step 2: Become an Approved Data Provider

Before you can list a data set on the Snowflake Data Marketplace, you must become an approved data provider.

The approval is a one-time process that ensures that:

  • Provider is a Snowflake customer in the supported regions.

  • Provider has signed the Snowflake Provider agreement.

  • Provider’s data meets Snowflake’s data requirements. To meet the requirements, shared data must be:

    • Fresh — the data is near real-time or updated on a regular basis.

    • Real — not sample data.

    • Legally shareable — the provider must own the data or have the right to share it.

    Note

    To the extent any data in your data listing or data set is governed by any laws or contractual obligations, you must ensure that you have the legal and contractual rights to share such data. For example, you can only share protected health information (PHI) through a personalized data share and, to do so, you must: (1) have signed a business associate agreement (BAA) with Snowflake and the Consumer receiving the PHI, and; (2) ensure that the Consumer has also signed a BAA with Snowflake. Also, while you can share personal data through both a standard or personalized data share, to do so you must have the applicable legal and contractual rights if the data is not publicly available.

Step 3: Configure Your Provider Profile

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

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 Data Marketplace icon in the top menu. The Public Data Marketplace 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. For the description of the fields, see Provider Profile Fields (In this topic).

  6. Click Save.

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

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.
