Connect Row Zero to Snowflake
In Row Zero click on the 'data source' icon in the right-hand menu and then click the button for 'New data source.'
The connection requires 5 pieces of information defined below.
- Name - This field can be anything that helps identify the data source being connected. (e.g. "Production Data" or "Product Metrics")
- Account name - This is the Snowflake account name. It can be found and copied from Snowflake as identified in the image below. When it is copied and pasted from Snowflake into Row Zero, it will paste with a decimal between the two alphanumeric identifiers. The decimal must be replaced by a hyphen ( - ). For example, "HW97234.DV88430" should be modified to "HW97234-DV88430" when pasted into Row Zero. See the image below. See the image below.
- Username - The username used to log into your Snowflake account.
- Password - The password used to log into your Snowflake account.
Once all the information is entered, hit 'Test connection' to ensure the information is correct. If the test returns green, you will be asked to select the 'Warehouse' and 'Role' before you can '+ Add Source.'
Write a query to import data
Now that Snowflake is connected to Row Zero, write a query to pull data into the spreadsheet. First select the 'Database' and 'Schema' from the two drop downs. Write a query in the query editor. The easiest query to write is the 'select *' statement, which pulls in the entire table. Example:
select * from TABLENAME
Row Zero is equipped to handle large data sets and will easily ingest the entirety of a table. Write more complicated queries to pull in various subsets of data stored in Snowflake. All results will be displayed in the 'connected data table' in the spreadsheet.
