1. Snowflake setup guide

Create a Snowflake role and user

Generate a password for the Paradime user and replace the placeholder text <your_generated_password_here> in the step below.

-- 1.### create user and role

use role useradmin;
create user if not exists paradime_cost_user
  password = '<your_generated_password_here>'
  default_role = paradime_cost_role
  default_warehouse = paradime_warehouse
  comment = 'Used by paradime.io for cost analytics';

create role if not exists paradime_cost_role comment = 'Used by paradime.io for cost analytics';
grant role paradime_cost_role to role sysadmin;
grant role paradime_cost_role to user paradime_cost_user;

Create a Snowflake warehouse

-- 2.### create warehouse

use role sysadmin;
create warehouse if not exists paradime_warehouse
  warehouse_size=xsmall
  auto_suspend=60
  initially_suspended=true
  comment = 'Used by paradime.io for cost analytics';
  
grant monitor, operate, usage, modify
  on warehouse paradime_warehouse to role paradime_cost_role;

Create S3 integration

Before running this command, you will need to update STORAGE_AWS_ROLE_ARN and STORAGE_ALLOWED_LOCATIONS with your own region and company token.

You can find the region and company token in the Paradime workspace settings page.

-- 3.### Create S3 integration

use role accountadmin;

create or replace storage integration PARADIME_S3_STORAGE_INTEGRATION
    type = external_stage
    storage_provider = 'S3'
    enabled = true
    STORAGE_AWS_ROLE_ARN = 'arn:aws:iam::817727247863:role/paradime-snowflake-role-<your_paradime_region>-<your_company_token>'  -- replace company token and region before running this command
    STORAGE_ALLOWED_LOCATIONS = ('s3://paradime-s3-<your_company_token>-<your_paradime_region>/snowflake/');  -- replace company token and region before running this command
    
grant usage on integration PARADIME_S3_STORAGE_INTEGRATION to role paradime_cost_role;

Create a new database and schema for Paradime

-- 4. ### create paradime db and schemas and grant access

use role accountadmin;

create or replace database PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS;

create or replace schema PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS.CORE;

grant usage on database  PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS to role paradime_cost_role;

grant usage on schema  PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS.CORE to role paradime_cost_role;

Create a new Snowflake file format


-- 5.### Create fileformat and grant privileges

use role accountadmin;

create or replace file format PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS.CORE.PARADIME_JSON_FORMAT
    type = JSON
    NULL_IF = ();

grant all privileges on file format PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS.CORE.PARADIME_JSON_FORMAT to paradime_cost_role;

Grant access to Snowflake metadata to the Paradime user

-- 6.### grant access to Snowflake metadata

use role accountadmin;

grant imported privileges on database snowflake to role paradime_cost_role;

Enable the Paradime user to manage and monitor Snowflake Warehouses

-- 7.### grant access to monitor warehouses

use role accountadmin;

grant monitor usage on account to role paradime_cost_role;


--- ### grant paradime the access to manage warehouses
use role accountadmin;

grant manage warehouses on account to role paradime_cost_role;

--- ### grant paradime the access to manage tasks
use role accountadmin; 

grant create TASK on schema  PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS.CORE to role paradime_cost_role;

grant execute TASK on ACCOUNT TO ROLE paradime_cost_role;

2. dbt™️ project setup guide

Create a macro to manage query comments

To enable Paradime to enrich your Snowflake queries with additional metadata you will need to create a new dbt™️ macro called get_query_comment.sql in the macros folder of your project.

Update your dbt_project.yml file

This step ensures that with each dbt™️ run, the query comment is appended to the query running in Snowflake.

dbt_project.yml
query-comment:
  comment: '{{ get_query_comment(node) }}'
  append: true

3. Configured Cost connection in Paradime

From the account setting page of your Paradime workspace, add your new Snowflake Cost connection using the credentials below:

  • You Snowflake Account Identifier

  • The Paradime Database created during the Snowflake Setup. This is named as: PARADIME_COST_ANALYTICS

  • The Paradime cost username and password, where the username is paradime_cost_user, and the password generated during the setup.
