Upgrade the connection type

If you are accessing Snowflake using the Snowflake V1 connection or the Snowflake ODBC connection, you can upgrade to the newer Snowflake Cloud Data Warehouse V2 Connector. As the object type is compatible, you can switch the source or target connection type in existing mappings that use the Snowflake connection or the Snowflake ODBC connection with the Snowflake Cloud Data Warehouse V2 connection.
After you replace the connection in an existing mapping, the object selected previously is not retained. You must reimport the Snowflake object. The configured advanced source, target, and lookup properties in the fields that are common between the two connectors are retained in the new connector. You also have the option to retain the configured field mappings from the old connector.
You can run the mapping successfully using the configured values from the old connector. You can additionally configure features that the enhanced Snowflake Cloud Data Warehouse V2 Connector offers.
Important: If you are using the Snowflake ODBC connection or the Snowflake V1 connection in mappings to read from or write data to Snowflake, Informatica recommends you to use the Snowflake Cloud Data Warehouse V2 connection to make use of the features that the enhanced connector offers.
