Configure Paths for Snowflake Background Tasks
Paths define which tables and views the discovery task or profiler task should work on. All paths need to be valid regular expressions. The regex is not case sensitive. (see examples)

Discovery Paths

This controls, which objects should be available in the catalog and for the other tasks.
Include:
These data objects (databases, schemas, tables, views) will be indexed for the catalog. <Empty> includes everything. If multiple paths are specified, all of them are searched. Overlapping paths will only be indexed once.
Exclude:
These objects are excluded from the catalog. <Empty> excludes nothing.
An object in the excluded paths will always be excluded (even if it was included above).

Profile Paths

This controls, which objects shall be profiled by the scheduler.
Include:
These data objects (databases, schemas, tables, views) will be profiled. <Empty> includes everything. If multiple paths are specified, all of them are profiled. Overlapping paths will only be profiled once.
Exclude:
These objects are not profiled. <Empty> excludes nothing.
💡 You should specify calculation-heavy views or views that rely on streams here. The profiler is a DML statement as it stores the results on Snowflake. Therefore it could consume the stream.
An object in the excluded paths will always be excluded (even if it was included above).

Examples

Match all tables or views of a database

1
demo_db\..*
Copied!
This would match all objects that start with DEMO_DB.. Please note that the .(dot) needs to be escaped otherwise it matches every character.

Match all tables or views with certain names

Match all tables or views of a schema that start with my_ and end with deprecated
1
my_database\.with_schema\.my_.*deprecated
Copied!
It would match e.g. MY_DATABASE.WITH_SCHEMA.my_temporary_table_deprecated.
