How to Set Up Fivetran Through Snowflake Partner Connect
At the end of 2018, we announced our involvement in Partner Connect, a Snowflake integration for Fivetran connectors that simplifies and accelerates the data loading process. Using this feature through the Snowflake interface allows you to quickly create a Fivetran trial. Fivetran connectors deploy in under five minutes and automatically adjust to source changes, so your team can focus on generating insights instead of wrangling data. In addition, Fivetran cleans and normalizes source data so you can load it into your Snowflake warehouse and run complex queries immediately. We recently presented a tutorial of partner connect in a webinar. Below we summarize the steps to get started:
Step one: Log in to your Snowflake account.
Step two: Select Partner Connect on the top right.
Step three: Select the Fivetran tile, followed by Connect. Fivetran will auto-create an extra-small data warehouse inside of Snowflake to pipe your data into.
Step four: Once the account has been created, a pop-up will appear that states the account is ready to be activated. Select Activate.
Step five: After activation, you will be prompted to create a password before selecting START FREE TRIAL.
Step six: After creating an account, you will be brought to the Fivetran UI, where you can search and add connectors and have all of your data at your fingertips.
After you have created and synced your first connector, your free 14-day trial starts. You can continue to add additional connectors or users during this time, and Fivetran will deliver the data you need in a timely manner and in an easy-to-query format.
If you have questions or require assistance at any point during the setup, our team is available. You can access our support team by selecting Support in your Fivetran account or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
