Snowsight is the only interface available

Currently, Snowflake is upgrading users from the first stage (Users choose default) to the second stage (Snowsight default), where Snowsight is set as the default for all users in an account and Classic Console is still accessible as needed.

Some groups of users have already been upgraded to the Snowsight default stage, and others will be upgraded soon. See Upcoming upgrades to Snowsight default stage and Already upgraded to Snowsight default or another stage to determine where you are in the upgrade process.

After you set Snowsight as the default for your user profile, you can access the Classic Console if needed using the Classic Console option in the menu.

When Snowsight is set as the default interface for an account, individual users can no longer set a default web interface on their user profile. All users can still access Classic Console after signing in to Snowsight.

You can contact your Snowflake account representative to set Snowsight as the default experience for all users in your account.

Snowsight is the only interface available

Starting May 30, 2023, Snowsight is the only interface available to newly created organizations, such as for most trial accounts. Users and accounts in those organizations cannot access Classic Console.
