How to Set Up Snowflake to HubSpot Connection? 2 Easy Ways

You can set up Snowflake to HubSpot Connection using the following 2 methods:

Method 1: Manually set up Snowflake to HubSpot Connection Using CSV Files 

If you rarely need to extract data from Snowflake, you can manually set up the Snowflake to HubSpot Connection. You can export your Snowflake Data as a CSV file and upload it to HubSpot. To achieve this, you can follow the simple steps given below:

Step 1: Export Snowflake Data as a CSV File

Snowflake HubSpot Integration Via COPY INTO & GET Command

Snowflake allows you to execute a simple SQL Command to bulk export your data to a Cloud Storage that includes a Snowflake Storage, Amazon S3 & Azure. For this article, Snowflake storage is selected. 

  • Step 1: You can consider the following COPY INTO command syntax to achieve this:
COPY INTO { internalStage }
     FROM { [<namespace>.]<table_name> | ( <query> ) }
[ PARTITION BY <expr> ]
[ FILE_FORMAT = ( { FORMAT_NAME = '[<namespace>.]<file_format_name>' |
                    TYPE = { CSV | JSON | PARQUET } [ formatTypeOptions ] } ) ]
[ copyOptions ]


internalStage ::=
  | @[<namespace>.]%<table_name>[/<path>]
  | @~[/<path>]

Consider the following example, 

copy into @new_stage/result/data_ from (select * from products)
   file_format=(format_name=CSV  compression='gzip');

Here, data is being replicated to an internal stage named new_stage from the products table in a CSV format. 

  • Step 2: You can now use the GET command to download the CSV file into your local system. You can execute the GET command by following the syntax given below:
GET internalStage file://<path_to_file>/<filename>
    [ PARALLEL = <integer> ]
    [ PATTERN = '<regex_pattern>'' ]


internalStage ::=
  | @[<namespace>.]%<table_name>[/<path>]
  | @~[/<path>]

Consider the following example that uses the GET command to download files to your local directory(for windows users). 

get @new_stage/result/data_ file://C:tempload  
Snowflake to HubSpot Integration using SnowSQL

SnowSQL is suitable if you only need to download CSV files of less than 50 Mb i.e around 250K rows. If not done already, you can follow the simple instructions provided on the Official Snowflake website to install SnowSQL on Linux, macOS, or Windows

  • You can now login into SnowSQL using your Snowflake account credentials.

snowsql -c, new_database_connection, -d new_database_name -s public -q "SELECT * FROM new.public.people", -o output_format=csv -o header=false -o timing=false -o friendly=false  > new_file.csv
