There are a few ways to track data sharing on Snowflake:

- Use the Snowflake audit logs: The Snowflake audit logs track all data access activity, including data sharing. You can use the audit logs to track who has accessed shared data, when they accessed it, and what they did with it.

- **Use the Snowflake Data Sharing Usage views:** The Snowflake Data Sharing Usage views provide information about the usage of shared data, such as the number of queries that have been run against shared data, the amount of data that has been accessed, and the time that has been spent accessing shared data.

- Use the Snowflake Data Sharing API: The Snowflake Data Sharing API can be used to programmatically track data sharing. You can use the API to get information about shared data, such as the list of accounts that have been granted access to shared data, the permissions that have been granted to each account, and the usage of shared data by each account.

By tracking data sharing, you can gain insights into how your data is being used and identify any potential security risks.

Here are some additional tips for tracking data sharing on Snowflake:

- Set up alerts: You can set up alerts in Snowflake to notify you when there is suspicious data sharing activity. This can help you to quickly identify and investigate any potential security risks.

- Review the audit logs regularly: It is important to review the audit logs regularly to track data sharing activity. This will help you to identify any unauthorized data access or usage.

- Use the Data Sharing Usage views: The Snowflake Data Sharing Usage views can provide you with insights into how your data is being used. This information can be helpful in identifying potential security risks.

- Use the Data Sharing API: The Snowflake Data Sharing API can be used to programmatically track data sharing. This can be helpful if you need to track data sharing at scale or if you need to integrate data sharing tracking with other systems.

By following these tips, you can help to ensure that your data sharing activity is tracked and monitored effectively.
