Snowflake

Step 1 - Prepare your Warehouse:

If you have defined a Snowflake Network Policy, add Narrator's IP addresses to that policy.

Create a user and grant Narrator Access

Open a new worksheet in the Snowflake console

Run a query in a worksheetRun a query in a worksheet

Run a query in a worksheet



Copy the code below into the worksheet and run it. Ensure 'All Queries' is checked.

begin;

-- create variables for user / password / role / warehouse / database (needs to be uppercase for objects)
set role_name = 'NARRATOR_ROLE';
set user_name = 'narrator_user';
set user_password = 'pleasereplaceme';
set warehouse_name = 'COMPUTE_WH';
set database_name = 'DOH';

-- change role to securityadmin for user / role steps
use role securityadmin;

-- create role for narrator
create role if not exists identifier($role_name);
grant role identifier($role_name) to role SYSADMIN;

-- create a user for narrator
create user if not exists identifier($user_name)
password = $user_password
default_role = $role_name
default_warehouse = $warehouse_name;

grant role identifier($role_name) to user identifier($user_name);

-- change role to sysadmin for warehouse / database steps
use role sysadmin;


-- grant narrator role access to warehouse
grant USAGE
on warehouse identifier($warehouse_name)
to role identifier($role_name);

-- grant narrator access to database
grant CREATE SCHEMA, MONITOR, USAGE
on database identifier($database_name)
to role identifier($role_name);


-- grant narrator read access to database
grant usage on all schemas in database identifier($database_name)  to role identifier($role_name);
grant select on all tables in database identifier($database_name) to role identifier($role_name);


-- grant narrator read access to all future tables database
grant usage on database identifier($database_name) to role identifier($role_name);

-- change role to securityadmin for future schemas role assignment
use role securityadmin;

grant usage on future schemas in database identifier($database_name)  to role identifier($role_name);
grant select on future tables in database identifier($database_name)  to role identifier($role_name);

commit;




Step 2 - Use that new user to connect to Snowflake

Click Snowflake

Account name can be found from the URL of the Snowflake console:

https://abcde.us-east-1.snowflakecomputing.com/console#/internal/worksheet

the account name here is abcde.us-east-1

The rest of the fields are the values in the script above
