The Snowflake driver depends on the sqlalchemy snowflake and can be installed with:

pip install "sayn[snowflake]"

SAYN will consider the following parameters to construct the sqlalchemy url:

Parameter Description Default
account account.region Required
user User name used to connect Required
password Password for that user Required
database Database in use upon connection Required
role User role to use on this connection Default role for user
warehouse Warehouse to use to run queries Default warehouse for user
schema Default schema for the connection

Other parameters specified will be passed on to sqlalchemy.create_engine when creating the engine.


    type: snowflake
    user: snowflake_user
    role: etl
    password: 'Pas$w0rd' #use quotes to avoid conflict with special characters
    database: models
    warehouse: etl-warehouse

Check the sqlalchemy snowflake dialect for extra parameters.
