Query Snowflake

To query Snowflake with Flux:

  1. Import the sql package.

  2. Use sql.from() and provide the following parameters:

    • driverName: snowflake
    • dataSourceName: See data source name
    • query: SQL query to execute
import "sql"

sql.from(
    driverName: "snowflake",
    dataSourceName: "user:password@account/db/exampleschema?warehouse=wh",
    query: "SELECT * FROM example_table",
)

Snowflake data source name

The snowflake driver uses the following DSN syntaxes (also known as a connection string):

username[:password]@accountname/dbname/schemaname?param1=value1&paramN=valueN
username[:password]@accountname/dbname?param1=value1&paramN=valueN
username[:password]@hostname:port/dbname/schemaname?account=<your_account>&param1=value1&paramN=valueN

Snowflake to Flux data type conversion

sql.from() converts Snowflake data types to Flux data types.

Snowflake data typeFlux data type
FIXED, NUMBERint or float (depending on decimal size)
REAL, FLOATfloat
TIMESTAMP_TZ, TIMESTAMP_LTZtime
BOOLEANbool

All other Snowflake data types (including TIMESTAMP_NTZ, DATE and TIME) are converted to strings.
