The Snowflake .NET driver provides an interface to the Microsoft .NET open source software framework for developing applications. The driver supports using Visual Studio 2017 to develop .NET applications; all other versions of Visual Studio are not supported.
For complete installation and usage instructions, as well as developer notes and the source code, see the GitHub Snowflake .NET driver repo.
The driver does not currently support the PUT or GET command and, therefore, cannot be used to upload or download files for data loading/unloading. Use SnowSQL (CLI Client) or the JDBC Driver instead.
Verifying the Network Connection to Snowflake with SnowCD¶
After configuring your driver, you can evaluate and troubleshoot your network connectivity to Snowflake by using the Snowflake Connectivity Diagnostic Tool (SnowCD).
You can use SnowCD during the initial configuration process and on-demand at any time to evaluate and troubleshoot your network connection to Snowflake.
