SHOW APPLICATIONS

Lists the application objects for which you have access privileges across your entire account in the Snowflake Native App Framework.

The output returns metadata and properties for the application object, ordered lexicographically by name. This is important to note if you wish to filter the results using the provided filters.

Syntax

SHOW APPLICATIONS [ LIKE '<pattern>' ]
  [ STARTS WITH '<name_string>' ]
  [ LIMIT <rows> [ FROM '<name_string>' ] ];
Copy

Parameters

LIKE 'pattern'

Optionally filters the command output by object name. The filter uses case-insensitive pattern matching, with support for SQL wildcard characters (% and _).

For example, the following patterns return the same results:

... LIKE '%testing%' ...
... LIKE '%TESTING%' ...

. Default: No value (no filtering is applied to the output).

STARTS WITH 'name_string'

Optionally filters the command output based on the characters that appear at the beginning of the object name. The string must be enclosed in single quotes and is case-sensitive.

For example, the following strings return different results:

... STARTS WITH 'B' ...
... STARTS WITH 'b' ...

. Default: No value (no filtering is applied to the output)

LIMIT rows [ FROM 'name_string' ]

Optionally limits the maximum number of rows returned, while also enabling “pagination” of the results. The actual number of rows returned might be less than the specified limit. For example, the number of existing objects is less than the specified limit.

The optional FROM 'name_string' subclause effectively serves as a “cursor” for the results. This enables fetching the specified number of rows following the first row whose object name matches the specified string:

  • The string must be enclosed in single quotes and is case-sensitive.

  • The string does not have to include the full object name; partial names are supported.

Default: No value (no limit is applied to the output)

Note

For SHOW commands that support both the FROM 'name_string' and STARTS WITH 'name_string' clauses, you can combine both of these clauses in the same statement. However, both conditions must be met or they cancel out each other and no results are returned.

In addition, objects are returned in lexicographic order by name, so FROM 'name_string' only returns rows with a higher lexicographic value than the rows returned by STARTS WITH 'name_string'.

For example:

  • ... STARTS WITH 'A' LIMIT ... FROM 'B' would return no results.

  • ... STARTS WITH 'B' LIMIT ... FROM 'A' would return no results.

  • ... STARTS WITH 'A' LIMIT ... FROM 'AB' would return results (if any rows match the input strings).

Output

The command output provides application object properties and metadata in the following columns:

Column

Description

created_on

Date and time when the application object was created.

name

The name of the application object.

is_default

Specifies if the application object is in the default namespace for the user.

is_current

Specifies if the application object is in the current session context.

source_type

Specifies the source of the application object. Valid values are:

  • APPLICATION PACKAGE

  • LISTING

source

The name of the application package or listing used to create the application object.

owner

The role used to create the application object.

comment

Text that provides information about the application object.

version

The version identifier used to create the application object.

label

The version label of the application object. This label is visible to consumer when they install a Snowflake Native App.

patch

The patch number used to create the application object.

options

For an application object, this field is always empty.

retention_time

The retention time of the application object.

upgrade_status

The current state of the background installation or upgrade of the application object. Valid values are:

  • INSTALLING: The application object is in the process of being created.

  • INSTALL_FAILED: The creation of the application object failed. The application object remains in the INSTALL_FAILED state until it is dropped. The reason for the failure is listed in the UPGRADE_FAILURE_REASON column, if present.

  • COMPLETE: The setup script successfully completed and the application object was created or upgraded.

  • QUEUED: The application object is queued for upgrade.

  • UPGRADING: The application object is in the process of being upgraded.

  • FAILED: All upgrade attempts failed. The reason for the failure is listed in the

    UPGRADE_FAILURE_REASON column, if present. The instance remains in the FAILED state until a release directive is updated to point to a different version than the one that the upgrade was targeting as defined in the TARGET_UPGRADE_VERSION.

  • QUEUED_RETRY: The instance failed one or more upgrade attempts. The reason for the failure is indicated in UPGRADE_FAILURE_REASON: The instance is queued to perform another upgrade attempt.

  • DISABLED: The application object and its upgrades were disabled. In this state the instance will be inaccessible for consumers, it will not be considered for upgrades and will not block application package version drop. The reason for the failure is listed in the UPGRADE_FAILURE_REASON column, if present.
