Compose users can connect to an OAuth-enabled Snowflake data source using the Connection Settings dialog. Refer to Working with Data Source Connections for information on how to establish Compose connections.

If role-switching is configured, then users can switch to a different role available to them in Snowflake with the
USE ROLE statement.
