Web Interface

The Snowflake web interface is easy to use and powerful. You can use it to perform almost every task that can be performed using SQL and the command line, including:

  • Creating and managing users and other account-level objects (if you have the necessary administrator roles).

  • Creating and using virtual warehouses.

  • Creating and modifying databases and all database objects (schemas, tables, views, etc.).

  • Loading data into tables.

  • Submitting and monitoring queries.

In addition, you can use the web interface to change your Snowflake password and manage your user preferences.

Note that this set of topics do not describe all the tasks you can perform in the interface. Instead, they provide general usage information, as well as highlight some of the more important and useful features of the interface, particularly in the Worksheets Worksheet tab and History History tab pages.

Note

A note about the new web interface.

We are pleased to introduce a preview of our new web interface, which is built using a completely new architecture to run modern, high-performance web applications.

The following new features are available in the new web interface:

  • Snowsight, the SQL Worksheets replacement designed for data analysis.

  • Data Marketplace.

The feature set in the new web interface will expand over time to include additional workflows and capabilities.

For convenience, when working in the new web interface, we recommend opening the classic (production) web interface in a separate tab if you need to access its functionality in your current user session.
