Query Snowflake

White Label Data can query Snowflake data warehouses and connect the results to a visualization. First, you must Create a Snowflake Connection. To add a query to a visualization, you create a <query> section in a Layer file and write your SQL query. Then, you add a step to the pipeline corresponding to that query. A Snowflake query configuration looks as follows:


<query name="myquery">


    "steps" : [
            "action" : "snowflake_query",
            "query_name": "myquery"



Option Value(s) Description
action snowflake_query Specifies that it is a Snowflake query.
query_name A string The name of the query specified in a <query> tag within the combined Layer.
output_dataframe A string The name to use when creating a new DataFrame. This allows you to have multiple DataFrames in the pipeline context and to map columns from multiple queries to a single visualization. If no name is specified, the DataFrame will be named after the query name.
connection A string Optional. The name of the connection specified in appconfig.json. This is only needed if there are two connections of the same type. For example, if you have two Snowflake connections, you need to specify which one to use for this Snowflake query pipeline step.
shared true or false Indicates whether the query is shared and available to multiple visualizations. See Shared Queries.
