Set up a Snowflake connection

When inside a workbook, click View > Databases, then click the + icon and follow the on-screen instructions.

To find your account name, follow these instructions. Note that in some cases, it's necessary to include your cloud region in the identifier.

For detailed instructions, see Connect your data to DataLab.

If you want to experiment with Snowflake without setting up a connection, you can use our sample data warehouse with London Public Transit data.

Query the database

You can now query the Snowflake data warehouse with a SQL cell. Select it in the Select source dropdown in the top left corner of a SQL cell, or select the sample Snowflake database.
