Prepare your connection string and environment variables. You can also pass this directly as CLI parameters.

SETX YUNIQL_WORKSPACE "c:\temp\yuniql\samples\basic-snowflake-sample"
SETX YUNIQL_CONNECTION_STRING "host=<your-snowflake-host>com;account=<your-snowflake-account>;user=<your-snowflake-user>;password<your-snowflake-password>;db=<your-snowflake-database-name>;schema=PUBLIC"

Apply migrations with yuniql run and specify the target platform with --platform. Yuniql discovers the project directory, sorts all versions, creates the target database if it doesn’t exist and runs all migration steps in the right order. These includes .sql files, directories, subdirectories, and csv files.

yuniql run --platform snowflake -a --debug
yuniql list --platform snowflake

Known Issues and limitations
  • Only supports username and password authentication on connection string. Advanced token-based autnentication have not been tested but could just work, please try and send us feedback.
  • Transaction mode default to Statement. Snowflake only supports Implicit Transaction for DDL statements. This means each DDL statement are executed as one atomic unit. If there’s an open transaction prior to it, the transaction will be auto-committed and a new transaction will be created to cover the DDL statement. See
  • GO batch terminator. The .sql files can be prepared and batched with “GO” terminator. This is not official Snowflake batch terminator. We did this because the current semicolon “;” terminator parser seems need further work :). If you use “SELECT GET_DDL(‘DATABASE’, ‘HELLO_YUNIQL’);” to dump schema from your database, please add “GO” at each DDL statement.
