Snowflake Integration

Automating your privacy requests fulfillment by integrating Mine PrivacyOps to Snowflake

This integration allows you to automate delete & copy requests for Snowflake

    Before you start

    • Make sure your Mine PrivacyOps plan supports integrations.
    • Make sure you have sufficient permissions to create an api key - Account Admin permissions


    Setting up

    To connect the Snowflake integration, follow the steps below:

    1. On the left sidebar, click Data Inventory and then Data Sources
    2. Click on Add data source
    3. Select Snowflake from the catalog, then enter the Snowflake page from your data sources list
    4. In the RequestHandling tab, check the Handle this data source in privacy requests checkbox and choose the Integration handling style
    5. Create a custom user and role for the integration:
      1. From your Snowflake account admin, go to Worksheets

      2. Open a new worksheet and run each of the following commands (with user and password as you choose):

    use role accountadmin;


    CREATE USER <saymineUser>

        PASSWORD = '<sayminePassword>'

        LOGIN_NAME = <saymineUser>


    grant usage on database <my_db> to role SAYMINE;

    grant usage on schema <my_db>.<my_schema> to role SAYMINE;

    grant select on all tables in schema <my_db>.<my_schema> to role SAYMINE;

    grant delete on all tables in schema <my_db>.<my_schema> to role SAYMINE;

    6. Or do the following instead:

      1. Create a new role named “SAYMINE
      2. Create a new user for the integration, and grant with the role SAYMINE
      3. Grant ‘usage’ for the required database to the role SAYMINE
      4. Grant ‘usage’ for the required schema to the role SAYMINE
      5. Grant ‘select’ and ‘delete’ on the required tables to the role SAYMINE
    7. On the integration page- Enter your Account and User Details:

    User and Account Details

    Insert your new snowflake user and password, and your Account Id, Region, and Warehouse in the following format:

    Defining the queries

    To manage your DSR handling actions, you need to define the queries that will run in Snowflake for each possible action:

    Note: The queries you use won't be validated. You should run them in your Snowflake account to make sure they are running as expected

    Preview Query

    The Preview query will be used when opening the ticket processing screen and is responsible for showing how many records were found as well as showing a sample (preview) of the data.


    Example Query:

    SELECT name, age, country FROM db.schema.table WHERE NAME =  {{endUserEmail}} 

    * Preview will return the count of the number of records returned in the query response

    * Preview will show the first 3 values from the query response, it supports strings and long types

    * The variable is mandatory


    Copy Query

    The Copy query will be used for the Copy action. Copy action is running on the ticket processing page in ticket of type Copy when clicking on Generate Copy

    Example Query:

    SELECT * FROM db.schema.table WHERE NAME =  {{endUserEmail}} 

    * Copy will show all records returned in the query response

    * The variable is mandatory


    Delete Query

    The Delete query will be used for the Delete action. Delete action is running on the ticket processing page in ticket of type Deletion when clicking on Delete from X sources

    Example Query:

    DELETE FROM db.schema.table WHERE NAME =  {{endUserEmail}} 

    * The variable is mandatory


    Paste the details and queries in the Request handling tab in the correct inputs and click Save.
