Here you can specify which schemas you want to sync and scan. Options are:
- Only these…
- All except…
For the Only these and All except options, you can input a comma-separated list of values to tell Metabase which schemas you want to include (or exclude). For example:
You can use the
* wildcard to match multiple schemas.
Let’s say you have three schemas: foo, bar, and baz.
- If you have Only these… set, and enter the string
b*, you’ll sync with bar and baz.
- If you have All except… set, and enter the string
b*, you’ll just sync foo.
Note that only the
* wildcard is supported; you can’t use other special characters or regexes.
Here are some gotchas to look out for when connecting to Snowflake:
Accountfield requires the alphanumeric account ID with the region that your Snowflake cluster is running on. For example, if you’re running Snowflake on AWS and your account URL is
https://az12345.ca-central-1.snowflakecomputing.com, then the
.awssuffix). There are some regions that don’t need this suffix, so please refer to the official Snowflake documentation for this
Schemafields are optional. Specifying a role will override the database user’s default role. For example, if the database user is
REPORTERwith default role
REPORTER, but the user also has access to role
REPORTERPRODUCT, then filling in
Rolefield will ensure that the
REPORTERPRODUCTrole is used instead of the user’s default
REPORTERrole. If no schema is passed, then all schema available to that user and role will be listed as folders in the Metabase UI.
All other fields must be entered in upper case. Excluding the password.
