Managing Your Provider Profiles 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:

In this Topic:

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 globally to all non-VPS Snowflake accounts hosted on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, 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.

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.

  • Provider acknowledges and will operate in a manner consistent with Snowflake’s Provider Policies.

    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.

Creating a Provider Profile

To create a provider profile:

  1. Log in to the new Snowflake web interface as an ACCOUNTADMIN or a role with the Global CREATE DATA EXCHANGE LISTING Privilege.

  2. Navigate to Data » Manage » Snowflake Data Marketplace » the Provider Profile tab.

  3. Click the Add Profile button.

  4. Complete the required fields. For the description of the fields, see Provider Profile Fields (In this topic).

  5. Click Next to review your submission.

  6. Click Submit for Approval to submit the profile for approval.

Editing a Provider Profile

You can edit a provider profile at any time. An updated profile must be approved by Snowflake before the changes become available in the Marketplace. Once approved, the profile updates are reflected for all listings associated with the profile.

Note

Updating Business Contact and Technical Contact fields in the provider profile, does not require an approval from Snowflake.

To edit a provider profile:

  1. Log in to the new Snowflake web interface as an ACCOUNTADMIN or a role with the Global CREATE DATA EXCHANGE LISTING Privilege.

  2. Navigate to Data » Manage » Snowflake Data Marketplace » the Provider Profile tab.

  3. Click on the profile you wish to update.

  4. 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. Log in to the new Snowflake web interface as an ACCOUNTADMIN or a role with the Global CREATE DATA EXCHANGE LISTING Privilege.

  2. Navigate to Data » Manage » Snowflake Data Marketplace » the Provider Profile tab.

  3. Click on the profile you wish to update.

  4. From the Manage drop-down list, select Delete Profile.

    Note

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

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.
