With listings, you can provide data and other information to other Snowflake users, and you can access data and other information shared by Snowflake providers.
You can explore, access, and provide listings privately to consumers and on the Snowflake Marketplace.
What is a Listing?¶
A listing is an enhanced method of Secure Data Sharing and uses the same provider and consumer model.
As a provider, you can use a listing to share data in your Snowflake account with other Snowflake accounts privately or by offering a listing on the Snowflake Marketplace. See Becoming a Provider of Listings.
As a consumer, you can use a listing to access data shared by other Snowflake accounts on the Snowflake Marketplace or privately with your account. See Becoming a Consumer of Listings.
Listings add capabilities to Secure Data Sharing such as the following:
Offer a share publicly on the Snowflake Marketplace.
Charge consumers for access to the data in the share.
Monitor interest in your listing and usage of the data in the share.
Provide metadata about the share, such as a title, description, sample SQL queries, and information about the data provider.
You can explore listings and providers on the Snowflake Marketplace through Snowsight. See About Snowflake Marketplace.
To use listings and the Snowflake Marketplace, there are additional Legal Requirements for Providers and Consumers of Listings.
Types of Listings¶
As a provider, you can choose which type of listing to use to share data and information with consumers.
When you create a listing, you choose between offering a listing publicly on the Snowflake Marketplace, or privately to select customers.
As a provider, you can offer listings on the Snowflake Marketplace to market your data product across the Snowflake Data Cloud. Offering a listing on the Snowflake Marketplace lets you share curated data offerings with many consumers simultaneously, rather than maintain sharing relationships with each individual consumer.
Marketplace listings can be free listings, paid listings, or personalized listings tailored to specific consumers.
See About Snowflake Marketplace for more.
Private listings let you take advantage of the capabilities of listings to share data and other information directly with another Snowflake account in any Snowflake region.
Private listings can be free or paid.
A free listing is available privately or on the Snowflake Marketplace, and provides instant access to a published dataset. Free listings can be entirely free to access, or listings that consumers pay for off the Snowflake platform (paid off-platform) by interacting directly with the data provider.
This type of listing is best for providing generic, aggregated, or non-customer-specific data.
A paid listing is available privately or on the Snowflake Marketplace. As a provider, you can create paid listings to charge consumers to access or use your listing.
Paid listings are only available to consumers in specific regions, and from providers in specific regions.
For more information about paying for listings as a consumer, see Paying for Listings.
For more information about creating paid listings as a provider, see Creating and Publishing a Listing.
For more information about the pricing models you can use as a provider, see Paid Listings Pricing Models.
A personalized listing lets consumers request specific datasets from providers. A personalized listing can contain premium data that a provider charges for, or data that is specific to each consumer.
For more about how you can access a personalized listing as a consumer, see Access a Personalized Listing on the Snowflake Marketplace.
