The Harmony Snowflake Connector establishes access to Snowflake.
The Snowflake connector provides an interface for creating a Snowflake connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Snowflake activities. These activities, once configured, interact with Snowflake through the connection.
The Snowflake connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connections tab (see Design Component Palette).
Snowflake Developer Instances are known to "go to sleep" if you haven't recently logged in to the Snowflake UI or used the instance. If a table does not populate with available objects, first ensure that the Snowflake instance is active, and then ensure you are connected to it by reopening the Snowflake connection and retesting the credentials.
This connector is used to first configure a Snowflake connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).
Together, a specific Snowflake connection and its activities are referred to as a Snowflake endpoint:
Get: Retrieves a CSV file of table or view data from Snowflake and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.
Query: Retrieves a CSV file of table or view data from Snowflake and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.
Merge: Inserts or updates a CSV file of table data into Snowflake and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
Invoke Stored Procedure: Invokes a stored procedure created in Snowflake and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
Update: Updates table data in Snowflake and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
Delete: Deletes table data and view data from Snowflake and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
Insert: Inserts table data (either as a CSV file or directly mapped to columns of a table) into Snowflake and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
This connector is a Connector SDK-based connector, which may be referred to by Jitterbit when communicating changes made to connectors built with the Connector SDK.
Prerequisites and Supported API Versions¶
The Snowflake connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.
If you experience issues with the Snowflake connector, these troubleshooting steps are recommended:
Click the Test button in the connection configuration to ensure the connection is successful and to ensure the latest version of the connector is downloaded to the agent (unless using the Disable Auto Connector Update organization policy).
Check the operation logs for any information written during execution of the operation.
If using Private Agents, you can check the agent logs for more information.
