(Example) How to Update an Access Token for Snowflake

To update an access token for Snowflake, do the procedure in this topic.

Background and Setup


Good to Know

  • By default, Snowflake expires its refresh tokens after 90 days. A refresh token is an OAuth 2.0 object that allows an access token to renew. After the refresh token expires, the associated access token can no longer be used and a new access token must be created. This requires action in both AgilePoint NX and Snowflake.

    You can request Snowflake Support to change the refresh token timeout for your Snowflake environment. For example, to request a timeout of 5 years, request the maximum OAUTH_REFRESH_TOKEN_VALIDITY for a SECURITY INTEGRATION to be increased to 157784630 sec.

    If you do not change the default timeout for refresh tokens, AgilePoint strongly recommends setting a reminder to update your Snowflake access token every 90 days. If the refresh token expires, all AgilePoint NX apps that use the Snowflake access token will stop until the access token is updated. Then you will need to start the apps in Manage Center. AgilePoint NX does not provide automated reminders for this timeout.

  • This topic shows the procedure to update an global access token for Snowflake in Manage Center. You can follow the similar procedure to update an app level access token for Snowflake.
  • OAuth 2.0 access tokens require a 2-way exchange of credentials between AgilePoint NX and the external service. This means that you must get the credentials from the third-party service to paste in the AgilePoint NX access token, and get the redirect URI from AgilePoint NX to paste in the external service. This requires you to open both the AgilePoint NX access token and the third-party service at the same time, so you can copy and paste from one screen to the other.

    This topic shows the suggested procedure for Snowflake. The exact procedure for your access token depends on whether you already have a connection (usually called an app) configured in the external service.

  • This topic gives one example. The procedure may vary depending on your configuration and account settings in the third-party service.
  • Some information about third-party integrations is outside the scope of the AgilePoint NX Product Documentation. It is the responsibility of the vendors who create and maintain these technologies to provide this information. This includes specific business use cases and examples; explanations for third-party concepts; details about the data models and input and output data formats for third-party technologies; and various types of IDs, URL patterns, connection string formats, or other technical information that is specific to the third-party technologies.
