The page describes the work with Snowflake datasets and connecting Snowflake to the portal.
Adding Snowflake Data
There are several options of accessing Snowflake data uploader:
- From any page click on the Tools menu and select Add Snowflake Data
On the home page click on Add Snowflake Data under QUICK ACCESS menu
In each case you will see the popup where you’ll be asked to select a connector, then you will see a list of available Snowflake datasets and once you select the dataset you will see a list of tables from this database. Select one and click Create Dataset.
Note: you may check connecting string details by clicking on the (i) icon near the connector field.
Once you click a Create Dataset button you will be sent to the Dataset Details page where you will be asked to specify types of the fields and their category.
Note: Knoema automatically determines the structure and sets the type and category for each field but it is recommended to go through the list to make sure that everything is done as expected.
After you finish click on the Submit button to start the upload process
You will see the Data uploading popup which you can use to quickly add another dataset by clicking on Add another dataset button or click Homepage to get back to the homepage while the dataset is uploaded.
On the homepage you will see the upload status of your dataset in the bottom right corner of the page, once the dataset is uploaded you will see a SUCCESSFUL status and can open the dataset by clicking on the Go to dataset button.
