It would be really helpful to have a bulk load 'output' tool to Snowflake. This would be functionality similar to what is available with the Redshift bulk loader.Currently it takes a reaaally long time to insert via ODBC or would require you to write a custom solution to get this to work.
This article explains the general steps but some of the manual steps outlined would have to be automated to arrive at a solution that is entirely encapsulated within a workflow.
I can't believe this isn't current functionality, basically to push data to Snowflake now means purchasing another ETL tool.
We at Cradlepoint are VERY interested in seeing efficient bulk load capability from Alteryx to Snowflake! The work-around currently required to avoid single-row inserts via ODBC, is not a happy path. Efficient bulk loading to Snowflake would be a HUGE WIN for the Alteryx suite!
Thanks for the feedback- please continue to upvote this if you're interested!
We're hoping to get this delivered in our Q2 release.
That's great news! Thanks for the update Alex.
Great to hear about that capability making it to your roadmap, Alex, thanks much for the heads up... Absolutely functionality we've been interested in!
Bulk loading for Snowflake will be very useful! Really the ability to bulk load should be included for as many database connections as possible. As self service analytics tools like Alteryx get more popular, people need the ability to do basic ETL to prove out the value of their analytics.
Hi All, I'm the Beta Programs manager at Alteryx. Alex and I have put together a feedback program for the currently in Beta Snowflake Bulk Loader feature.
Simply follow this link and log in or create an account which will allow you to download the current beta build, and deliver feedback or enter bugs directly.
Here's some guidance for 'whats new' and 'what to test' in this particular build:
We have added Snowflake Bulk write to the Output tool and to the In-DB tools!
