Connections to a Snowflake database are made by selecting Snowflake from the list of drivers in the list of connectors in the Qlik Sense Add data or Data load editor dialogs.

Note: Industry-accepted best practices must be followed when using or allowing access through the ODBC Connector. Administrators must follow The Principle of Least Privilege when setting up source database privileges and permissions.
