Initial Setup

Hello! And welcome to Datameer.

This page provides you all required information for frictionless initial configuration of your Datameer instance.

You will be guided through:

  • Setting up your Datameer account
  • Validating your email and receiving your credentials
  • Connecting to your Snowflake account

Setting Up Your Datameer Account#

As soon as you received your trial URL, you can sign up. The registration form is asking you for entering your "First Name" and "Last Name" as well as your "Email" address. Please read and accept the "Terms of Condition" and confirm with "Sign Up". Your trial instance will be prepared - this may take about 2 minutes.

Validating Your Email and Datameer Account Credentials#

In your email inbox you will find a welcome email. This email contains:

  • a validation link to validate your email
  • the URL to your free trial
  • your temporary Datameer account credentials

To validate your email, just click on the first link or copy the link and open it in a web browser. Note that this link is only 6 hours valid. Unvalidated trials will expire afterwards.

When the trial instance is prepared, it is now time to log in to your Datameer account. For that, enter the credentials out of your validation email. Enter the "Username" and "Password" and then confirm with "Sign In". You will now be prompted to change the password. Do so and choose your new password, enter the new password below to confirm and then finish by clicking "Submit".

Connecting to Your Snowflake Account#

The final preparation step will be to connect your Snowflake account. For that, enter your "Account Name", then insert your Snowflake "Username" and your Snowflake "Password". Finally confirm this step by clicking on "Connect". Your Datameer instance is loaded and all available Snowflake schemas & datasets are introspected.

Note that if your Snowflake account has only limited access, the IP addresses on the left side need to be registered in your Snowflake account.
