Typically, Snowflake customers use a firewall to prevent unauthorized access. By default, your firewall might block access to Snowflake.
To update your firewall’s whitelist, you need to know the hostnames and port numbers for your Snowflake account, stages, and other other hosts used by Snowflake.
The data type of the returned value is VARIANT. The value is an array of JSON structures. Each JSON structure
contains three key/value pairs:
Currently, there are 5 possible types:
SNOWFLAKE_DEPLOYMENT: Hostname and port number information for your Snowflake account.
STAGE: Location (i.e. AWS S3, Google Cloud Storage, or Microsoft Azure) where files that the Snowflake client can read or write are stored.
SNOWSQL_REPO: Endpoint accessed by SnowSQL to perform automatic downloads/upgrades.
OUT_OF_BAND_TELEMETRY: The hosts to which drivers report metrics and out-of-band incidents such as OCSP issues.
OCSP_CACHE: Snowflake-provided alternative source of OCSP certificate information in case the primary OCSP responder cannot be reached. Most of the latest versions of the Snowflake clients access the OCSP cache rather than connecting directly to the OCSP responder.
Specifies the full hostname for type (e.g. "xy12345.east-us-2.azure.snowflakecomputing.com", "ocsp.snowflakecomputing.com").
Specifies the port number for type (e.g. "443", "80").
