Snowflake connection


I’m trying to connect DigitalOcean Spaces with Snowflake through a Stage creation but I keep getting the same error:

Failure using stage area. Cause: [The AWS Access Key Id you provided is not valid.]

Credentials are correct as I’ve tested them multiple times and even created a new set to make sure they weren’t expired nor anything similar.

Has anyone experienced something similar in the past?

Can you share the DDL statement that you are using? I can try to sign up for a Snowflake account and see if I can get this to work as well.
