Write Your Einstein Analytics Data to Snowflake (Beta)

Output connectors let you push your data from Analytics into Snowflake when you use Data Prep (Beta). You designed powerful recipes that combine data from multiple sources, add formula fields, and transform data into datasets tailored to your business needs. With output connectors and Data Prep (Beta), datasets are liberated from Analytics and written as a table for you to improve your overall business processes with better data.

Where: This change applies to Einstein Analytics in Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. Einstein Analytics is available in Developer Edition and for an extra cost in Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

As a beta feature, the Snowflake output connector is a preview and isn’t part of the “Services” under your master subscription agreement with Salesforce. Use this feature at your sole discretion, and make your purchase decisions only on the basis of generally available products and features. Salesforce doesn’t guarantee general availability of this feature within any particular time frame or at all, and we can discontinue it at any time. This feature is for evaluation purposes only, not for production use. It’s offered as is and isn’t supported, and Salesforce has no liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with it. All restrictions, Salesforce reservation of rights, obligations concerning the Services, and terms for related Non-Salesforce Applications and Content apply equally to your use of this feature. You can provide feedback and suggestions for the Snowflake output connector in the Einstein Analytics Pilot and Beta Connectors group in the Trailblazer Community.

When: This connector will be added during the Summer ’20 release.

How: Create the output connection to Snowflake from the Connect section of the Einstein Analytics Data Manager, using the Target Connections tab.

The Target Connections tab after selecting to create a connection.
Build out your recipe with Data Prep (Beta) and add an Output node. Select to write to the Output connection and choose the Snowflake connection in the output node of the recipe. Save the recipe. When the recipe runs, Analytics writes the outcome to Snowflake.
