These properties are used to configure tSnowflakeRow running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tSnowflakeRow component belongs to the Cloud family.

Note: This component is a specific version of a dynamic database connector. The properties related to database settings vary depending on your database type selection. For more information about dynamic database connectors, see Dynamic database components.

Basic settings

Database

Select a type of database from the list and click Apply.

Property Type

Select the way the connection details will be set.

  • Built-In: The connection details will be set locally for this component. You need to specify the values for all related connection properties manually.

  • Repository: The connection details stored centrally in Repository > Metadata will be reused by this component. You need to click the [...] button next to it and in the pop-up Repository Content dialog box, select the connection details to be reused, and all related connection properties will be automatically filled in.

This property is not available when other connection component is selected from the Connection Component drop-down list.

Connection Component

Select the component that opens the database connection to be reused by this component.

Account

In the Account field, enter, within double quotation marks, the name that has been assigned to you by Snowflake.

User Id and Password

Enter, within double quotation marks, your authentication information to log in Snowflake.

  • In the User ID field, enter, within double quotation marks, your login name that has been defined in Snowflake using the LOGIN_NAME parameter of Snowflake. For details, ask the administrator of your Snowflake system.

  • To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

Warehouse

Enter, within double quotation marks, the name of the Snowflake warehouse to be used. This name is case-sensitive and is normally upper case in Snowflake.

Schema

Enter, within double quotation marks, the name of the database schema to be used. This name is case-sensitive and is normally upper case in Snowflake.

Database

Enter, within double quotation marks, the name of the Snowflake database to be used. This name is case-sensitive and is normally upper case in Snowflake.

Table

Click the [...] button and in the displayed wizard, select the Snowflake table to be used.

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only.

Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs.

If the Snowflake data type to be handled is VARIANT, OBJECT or ARRAY, while defining the schema in the component, select String for the corresponding data in the Type column of the schema editor wizard.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.

This component offers the advantage of the dynamic schema feature. This allows you to retrieve unknown columns from source files or to copy batches of columns from a source without mapping each column individually. For further information about dynamic schemas, see Talend Studio User Guide.

This dynamic schema feature is designed for the purpose of retrieving unknown columns of a table and is recommended to be used for this purpose only; it is not recommended for the use of creating tables.

Guess Query

Click the button to generate the query which corresponds to the table and the schema in the Query field.

Query

Specify the SQL command to be executed.

For more information about Snowflake SQL commands, see SQL Command Reference.

Die on error

Select the check box to stop the execution of the Job when an error occurs.

Clear the check box to skip any rows on error and complete the process for error-free rows.

When errors are skipped, you can collect the rows on error using a Row > Reject connection.

Advanced settings

Login Timeout

Specify how long to wait for a response when connecting to Snowflake before returning an error.

Tracing

Select the log level for the Snowflake JDBC driver. If enabled, a standard Java log is generated.

Role

Enter, within double quotation marks, the default access control role to use to initiate the Snowflake session.

This role must already exist and has been granted to the user ID you are using to connect to Snowflake. If this field is left empty, the PUBLIC role is automatically granted. For further information about the Snowflake access control model, see Snowflake documentation at Understanding the Access Control Model.

Propagate QUERYs recordset

Select this check box to propagate the result of the SELECT query to the output flow.

Use PreparedStatement

Select this check box if you want to query the database using a prepared statement. In the Set PreparedStatement Parameters table displayed, specify the value for each parameter represented by a question mark ? in the SQL statement defined in the Query field.

  • Parameter Index: the position of the parameter in the SQL statement.

  • Parameter Type: the data type of the parameter.

  • Parameter Value: the value of the parameter.

For a related use case of this property, see Using PreparedStatement objects to query data.

Commit every

Specify the number of rows to be processed before committing batches of rows together into the database.

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at the Job level as well as at each component level.

Dynamic settings

Dynamic settings

Click the [+] button to add a row in the table and fill the Code field with a context variable to choose your database connection dynamically from multiple connections planned in your Job. This feature is useful when you need to access database tables having the same data structure but in different databases, especially when you are working in an environment where you cannot change your Job settings, for example, when your Job has to be deployed and executed independent of Talend Studio.

For examples on using dynamic parameters, see Reading data from databases through context-based dynamic connections and Reading data from different MySQL databases using dynamically loaded connection parameters. For more information on Dynamic settings and context variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.

Global Variables

NB_LINE

The number of rows processed. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE

The error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string.

Usage

Usage rule

This component offers the flexibility of the database query and covers all possible SQL queries.
