Snowflake Bulk Loader | Utilize built-in Snowflake Stage Instead of Separate S3 Bucket

Now that we have a Snowflake Bulk Loader option, it would be great to utilize the built-in Snowflake internal staging.  This eliminates the need for an end-user to have the technical know-how or access to IT resources to utilize a separate S3 bucket and generally reduces friction in the process. 

 

There was pretty widespread support in the original Bulk Load thread: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Snowflake-Bulk-Loader/idi-p/105291/page/2#co...

Very overdue... This would address the AWS vs. Azure version of Snowflake, since it should work for both version, using Snowflake functions...

Still quite overdue. Seems pointless to require users to incur the costs and hassle of a separate S3 bucket to use bulk-loading in S3. Makes the feature useless for a lot of users.

+10! WAY overdue now. I'm using version 2018.4.5 and have spent considerable time finding workarounds to this colossal oversight. These including Python, R, and SnowSQL command line. All able to use the PUT FILE (into local stage) command that Alteryx and the Snowflake console are unable to use. They work, but very difficult to integrate them into a workflow.

How can we push this idea further into review by the alteryx team?  We badly need this one as well...
