How do I create a new user in Snowsight?

Daniel Steinhold Asked question October 26, 2023

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, Snowsight is a web-based user interface for Snowflake, a cloud-based data warehousing platform. To create a new user in Snowsight, you would typically need to create a new user account in Snowflake itself, as Snowsight is just an interface to interact with your Snowflake data.

Here's how you can create a new user in Snowflake:

  1. Log in to the Snowflake Web Interface: Go to the Snowflake web interface (https://<your-account>, and log in with an account that has the necessary permissions (typically an account with the 'ACCOUNTADMIN' role).
  2. Navigate to the 'Users' Page:
    • Once you are logged in, click on the "Manage" tab at the top of the screen.
    • In the left-hand menu, under the "Security" section, click on "Users."
  3. Create a New User:
    • Click the "Create User" button, typically located on the right side of the "Users" page.
  4. Fill in User Information:
    • You will be prompted to enter user information, including the username, email address, and other details.
  5. Set Roles and Privileges:
    • You can assign roles to the new user, which determine their level of access and permissions within the Snowflake environment.
  6. Configure Other Settings:
    • Depending on your organization's requirements, you may need to set other parameters, such as session settings or authentication methods.
  7. Review and Create:
    • After you've filled in all the necessary information, review the user details to ensure they are correct. Then, click the "Create" or "Save" button to create the new user.

Please note that creating users in Snowflake may require administrative privileges or a specific role with user management permissions. The exact steps and options may have changed since my last update in September 2021, so I recommend referring to the latest Snowflake documentation or contacting your organization's Snowflake administrator for the most up-to-date instructions and best practices for user management.

Additionally, if Snowflake has introduced new features or changes related to user management in Snowsight specifically, it's advisable to check the most recent Snowsight documentation for any specific details on user management within the Snowsight interface.
