Is there a way to specify snowflake role name to be used as part of data source creation?

Hi Everyone, There seems to be no provision to specify role name to be used as part of snowflake params to create datasource.

Does it have to be the default role of the account being used?
If there are multiple roles attached to account used, can we specify which role to use as part of data source?


Hi @Karthick ,

For QuickSight to access to other services , you can use the default role or create your own role ( Using Amazon QuickSight with IAM - Amazon QuickSight ) .

When creating a datasource for Snowflake, the username is what you created in the Snowflake instance to access the database and underlying tables. As I understand, you cannot pass a specific role.


Thanks for confirming this
