Azure Private Link

Organizations using Snowflake with Azure Private Link can still use Metaplane with a few extra steps. Please reach out to your Metaplane account representative to start the process.

Steps to grant Metaplane access to a Snowflake instance behind Azure Private Link

  1. Run select system$get_privatelink_config(); in Snowflake and send the response to Metaplane.
  2. Metaplane will then create a private endpoint to connect to your Azure Private Link Snowflake account.
  3. Once Metaplane reaches back out, open a Snowflake support ticket to authorize access for Metaplane's private endpoint. The support ticket must contain the resource ID of the private endpoint. This will be given to you after step 2.
  4. Once the Snowflake support ticket has been closed, reach back out to Metaplane to finish configuring the private endpoint.
  5. Once Metaplane gives you the go ahead, you can connect to your Snowflake account in Metaplane using the Snowflake private link account name. It will look something like: <account id>.<region>.privatelink
    1. Note: If you are using network policies in Snowflake to restrict external access, you will have to add Metaplane's private IP address range to your policy.
