Question #1

An Architect is implementing a CI/CD process. When attempting to clone a table from a production to a development environment, the cloning operation fails.

What could be causing this to happen?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: B

Cloning a table with a masking policy can cause the cloning operation to fail because the masking policy is not automatically cloned with the table. This is due to the fact that the masking policy is considered a separate object with its own set of privileges1.

Question #4

An Architect with the ORGADMIN role wants to change a Snowflake account from an Enterprise edition to a Business Critical edition.

How should this be accomplished?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: D

To change the edition of a Snowflake account, an organization administrator (ORGADMIN) cannot directly alter the account settings through SQL commands or the Snowflake interface. The proper procedure is to contact Snowflake Support to request an edition change for the account. This ensures that the change is managed correctly and aligns with Snowflake's operational protocols.


Question #5

A company has built a data pipeline using Snowpipe to ingest files from an Amazon S3 bucket. Snowpipe is configured to load data into staging database tables. Then a task runs to load the data from the staging database tables into the reporting database tables.

The company is satisfied with the availability of the data in the reporting database tables, but the reporting tables are not pruning effectively. Currently, a size 4X-Large virtual warehouse is being used to query all of the tables in the reporting database.

What step can be taken to improve the pruning of the reporting tables?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: C

Effective pruning in Snowflake relies on the organization of data within micro-partitions. By using an ORDER BY clause with clustering keys when loading data into the reporting tables, Snowflake can better organize the data within micro-partitions. This organization allows Snowflake to skip over irrelevant micro-partitions during a query, thus improving query performance and reducing the amount of data scanned12.
