Overview of Snowflake

Snowflake offers a cloud database and related tools to help developers create robust, secure, and scalable data warehouses. See Snowflake's Key Concepts & Architecture.

Getting Started

1. Create a user, role and warehouse in Snowflake

Snowflake recommends you create a new user, role, and warehouse when you integrate a third-party tool like Pipedream. This way, you can control permissions via the user / role, and separate Pipedream compute and costs with the warehouse. We recommend you create a read-only account if you only need to query Snowflake.

2. Enter those details in Pipedream

  1. Visit https://pipedream.com/accounts
  2. Click the button to Connect an App
  3. Enter the required Snowflake data.

You'll only need to connect your account once in Pipedream. You can use this account to run queries against Snowflake, insert data, and more.

3. Build your first workflow

Visit [https://pipedream.com/new] to build your first workflow. Pipedream workflows let you connect Snowflake with 1,000+ other apps. You can trigger workflows on Snowflake queries, sending results to Slack, Google Sheets, or any app that exposes an API. Or you can accept data from another app, transform it with Python, Node.js, Go or Bash code, and insert it into Snowflake.

Overview of Airtable

Using the Airtable API, you can build applications that can:

  • Create and manage databases
  • Add, update, and delete records
  • Search for records
  • Sort and filter records
  • Display records in a variety of ways
  • Import and export data

Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
We love Airtable here at Pipedream. But Airtable lacks one killer feature — webhooks. We took advantage of Airtable’s Slack notifications and built a way to send webhooks to an HTTP endpoint every time a record is created or updated in a base. It takes 10 minutes to setup and it’s free.
Webhooks workaround using Slack
Webhooks workaround using Slack
This has been an open item in the Airtable support community for a few years, see "Webhooks for Records 393" and here 39, & here 28, and we are excited to offer a free solution to the community. Here is the high level solution: Based on the transitive property (A=B and B=C, then A=C), Airtable supports Slack Notifications, and Slack supports webhooks, so Airtable supports webhooks! You just have to know how to set it up correctly. With a simple integration via Pipedream into Slack, all Airtable users can now get near real time notifications of all updated fields and values in Airtable.
Overcoming Airtable Scripting Limitations with Pipedream
Overcoming Airtable Scripting Limitations with Pipedream
How I used Pipedream — Created a workflow having an API endpoint to convert Airtable’s Attachment Image URL to Base64 encode image (to push it to another API). Similarly, there could be a million other use-cases.
