Granting Access to the Support System to Individual Users

An administrator must grant one or more global privileges to a custom role before users that have been granted that role can access the Support system.

Note

Only organization administrators (users with the ORGADMIN role) can grant the MANAGE ORGANIZATION SUPPORT CASES privilege to roles.

Only account administrators (users with the ACCOUNTADMIN role) can grant either the MANAGE ACCOUNT SUPPORT CASES or MANAGE USER SUPPORT CASES privilege to roles.

The following table describes the available privileges and indicates the system role that has each privilege by default:

Privilege

Description

Granted to System Role

MANAGE ORGANIZATION SUPPORT CASES

Allows the role to view, comment on, and manage all Support cases for the organization.

ORGADMIN

MANAGE ACCOUNT SUPPORT CASES

Allows the role to view, comment on, and manage all Support cases for the current account.

ACCOUNTADMIN

MANAGE USER SUPPORT CASES

To grant one or more of the privileges to a custom role, grant each privilege to the role, execute a GRANT <privileges> … TO ROLE statement.

For example, grant the MANAGE USER SUPPORT CASES privilege to the myrole role:

The first time a user accesses the Support system, they must click the Enable Support button.

Creating Support Cases

  1. Click the + Support Case button.

  2. Complete and submit the form. Provide as much useful information as possible to aid Snowflake Support in resolving your issue.

Optionally add watchers to your case. Watchers are other users in your Snowflake account who have the Support page enabled or have a registered user in the Snowflake Community, and who share an interest in the progress and outcome of a specific case. The users identified as watchers receive email notifications whenever the case is updated or comments are added. A watcher who has a role with sufficient privileges can view, comment on, and modify the case.

Important

It is your responsibility to ensure that no confidential information, export-controlled data, personal data, sensitive data, or other regulated data is entered into the form. Ensure that the information submitted is not “Customer Data” as defined in the Snowflake Terms of Service or any other agreement between you and Snowflake covering use of the Snowflake Service.
