Snowflake data output
This article provides an introduction to Snowflake along with a guide on how to create a Snowflake data output using Upsolver.
1. Go to the Outputs page and click New.
2. Select Snowflake as your output type.
3. Name your output and select your Data Sources.
4. Select New to create a new table or Existing to output to an existing table. Then click Next.
If outputting to an existing table, complete the database options as prompted before clicking Next again. If necessary, create a new Snowflake connection.
5. Click the information icon
in the fields tree to view information about a field. The following will be displayed:
Density in Events
Density in Data
How many of the events in this data source include this field, expressed as a percentage (e.g. 20.81%).
The density in the hierarchy (how many of the events in this branch of the data hierarchy include this field), expressed a percentage.
How many unique values appear in this field.
The total number of values ingested for this field.
The first time this field included a value, for example, a year ago.
The last time this field included a value, for example, 2 minutes ago.
Field Content Samples Over Time
The percentage distribution of the field values. These distribution values can be exported by clicking Export.
A time-series graph of the total number of events that include the selected field.
The most recent data values for the selected field and columns. You can change the columns that appear by clicking Choose Columns.
6. Click the information icon
next to a hierarchy element (such as the overall data) to review the following metrics:
# of Fields
# of Keys
# of Arrays
The number of fields in the selected hierarchy.
The number of keys in the selected hierarchy.
The number of arrays in the selected hierarchy.
A stacked bar chart (by data type) of the number of fields versus the density/distinct values or a stacked bar chart of the number of fields by data type.
A list of the fields in the hierarchy element, including Type, Density, Top Values, Key, Distinct Values, Array, First Seen, and Last Seen.
7. Click the plus icon
in the fields tree to add a field from the data source to your output. This will be reflected under the Data Source Field in the Schema tab.
- If required, modify the column name under Schema Column.
- Additionally, click the gear iconto modify other details such as Column Type and Size.
- To remove a field, click the unlink iconto clear the column mapping then the garbage iconto drop the column.
Alternatively, add columns by clicking Add New Column.
- Provide a Column Name as well as select a Column Type.
- If desired, give the column a Default Value then click Save.
- This column will now be added under the Data Source Field in the Schema tab.
Toggle from UI to SQL at any point to view the corresponding SQL code for your selected output.
8. Add any required calculated fields and review them in the Calculated Fields tab. See: Adding calculated fields
9. Add any required lookups and review them under the Calculated Fields tab.
