Switching Your Active Role


Dropdown menu in the upper left (next to your login name) » Switch Role » <role_name>.

If more than one role has been granted to you, you can change the active role in the current session. The active role determines the databases, tables, and other objects you can see and the actions you can perform on them.

Note that the web interface navigation could include pages that the active role does not have permissions to access, the page itself does not display any data.


Changing your role here does not impact your individual Snowsight worksheets. Each worksheet has its own session and, therefore, can have a different role.

For more information about access roles and object privileges, see Access Control in Snowflake.
