Use Snowflake for synthetic data

With MOSTLY AI, you can connect to Snowflake and use it as a data source or destination for your synthetic data.


To create a Snowflake connector, you need either your Snowflake account identifier or your account URL.

Account identifier format: <org_name>-<account_name>
Account identifier URL format: https://<org_name>-<account_name>

For more information, see the Snowflake documentation (opens in a new tab).

Get your Snowflake account identifier

  1. In Snowflake, open the Account menu in the lower left. Open Snowflake account menu
  2. Copy the organization name and account name and put them together in an account identifier, separated with a dash. Open Snowflake account menu

Get your Snowflake account URL

  1. In Snowflake, select Admin > Accounts. Snowflake open Admin > Accounts
  2. Under Accounts, hover over your account identifier and click Copy account URL link. Copy Snowflake account URL

If you use the web application, create a new Databricks connector from the Connectors page.


  1. From the Connectors page, click New connector. Copy Snowflake account URL
