Snowflake is a cloud-based data warehousing company that offers a fully managed and scalable solution for storing and analyzing large amounts of data. It provides a cloud-based data storage and analytics service that allows businesses to store, process, and analyze large amounts of structured and semi-structured data.
The events available are from email, push notifications, in-app messages, and SMS messages that have been sent and the subsequent events data tied with it. By integrating with OneSignal, you unlock the ability to automatically sync message event data to your Snowflake database. This allows you to run queries and generate reports based on the events your users generate.
- If you don't have a Snowflake account, we recommend you follow the Snowflake Getting Started Tutorial.
- Ensure your Snowflake account has the
CREATE DATABASEroles. We recommend using the
ACCOUNTADMINrole for accepting the share.
- This integration is only accessible to OneSignal customers on an annual plan.
In order to activate the Snowflake integration, you'll need to request access via the OneSignal Marketplace listing for Message Events Data. From there we'll reach out to your team to obtain more information.
Once we connect with your team, you'll need to provide some details to us so we can share data with you. We will need your Snowflake Account ID (as shown below).
Once you are accepted into the program, be on the lookout for a few items:
- Email from OneSignal welcoming you into the program
- Email from Snowflake notifying that the data share is complete
Once you receive an email from Snowflake notifying you about the data share being complete, you should be able to log into the Snowflake app and accept the data share.
Navigate to Data → Private Sharing where you should be able to see a new Privately Shared Listing. Once you click Get, your data will start replicating to your region.
Note: If the Get button is not available but a Request button is, the permissions of the role attempting to make the share does not include
CREATE DATABASE or
IMPORT SHARE. We suggest switching to the

That’s it! Data is now being synced from OneSignal to Snowflake. The sync cadence is set to once every 24 hours, so the initial data may not be available until the next day.
Please email us at [email protected] to request to deactivate your data share with OneSignal.
