Get Started with Hasura Cloud & Snowflake
Try it out
Step 1: Create an account on Hasura Cloud and create a new Hasura Project
Navigate to cloud.hasura.io, and create a new Hasura Cloud account.
Once you create a project on Hasura Cloud, hit the "Launch Console" button to open the Hasura Console for your project.
Step 2: Add your Snowflake database as a source to Hasura
Step 2 Prerequisite: Turn on the experimental features for GDC.
While the Snowflake Connector is in beta, the feature can only be enabled by turning on the Experimental features for GDC under the Feature Flags section of the Console configuration page.
1) Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of your Cloud project
2) In the side navigation, click "Feature Flags"
3) Finally, toggle the "Experimental features for GDC" switch to enable
Head to the
Data > Manage databases section on the Console to add your Snowflake database as a source to Hasura.
- Allow public connections or whitelist the Hasura Cloud IP on your Snowflake firewall: This is good for testing and will allow you to quickly try out Hasura with your database!
- VPC peering: VPC peering and private network access is available on Hasura Cloud paid tiers and is recommended for production. Get in touch with us if you'd like to try this out against your existing databases.
Step 2.1: Begin by clicking "Connect Database"
Step 2.2: Next, choose the
snowflake (Beta) driver
Step 2.3: Enter your Snowflake JDBC Connection string
Snowflake JDBC connection strings have the following formats:
You can get your
account id for the second syntax by logging in to Snowflake and navigating to
Admin -> Accounts.
You can find more info on Snowflake's JDBC Connection docs here.
Once you add the Snowflake service, you will find it listed as an available database on the sidebar.
Step 3: Track existing tables
To query your Snowflake service using Hasura, you'll need to have existing tables to select. Those tables will appear under the database as shown.
You can select all or select individual tables to track. Click "Track Selected" for Hasura to introspect them and create the corresponding GraphQL schema.
Step 4: Try out a GraphQL query
Head to the
API tab in the Console and try running a GraphQL query! Use the explorer sidebar on GraphQL to get help in
creating a GraphQL query.
