Step 1: Connect to your Snowflake account


If you have entered your username, password, and Snowflake account correctly, the Warehouse and Database fields will automatically populate a drop-down menu. Place your cursor in the appropriate field to engage the drop-down and make your selection.

If no drop-down appears, you have either entered your user/account information incorrectly, or your username does not have access to any warehouses or databases. If your user/account information is correct and you should have access to warehouses or databases, please contact us via the circle icon in the bottom left corner of the screen.

  • Select Validate and Continue.
  • Once your Snowflake connection is validated, your account setup is complete. Ascend will only create/modify tables in the provided database using schemas prefixed with ASCEND_.


If you receive a validation error, contact us via the circle icon on the bottom left corner of the screen, or go back and correct any errors.

Step 2: Build a Dataflow

  • Ascend creates a Snowflake Read Connector and ingests the data from your connection database.
  • To transform your data, select Vertical Ellipsis > Create new Transform.
