Is it possible to add a new Connection Type to Airflow?

I’m looking to add a Connection Type to Airflow. Can I do so?



Hello @paola, I have installed Airflow 2.0.1 and I don’t see the Databricks & snowflake connections in the dropdown list. How can I add them to the Airflow 2.0.1 connections dropdown?

Hi @Pradeepkambham! Thanks for reaching out.

To answer your question, Connection Types in Airflow 2.0 are dependent on Airflow Provider Packages that are installed. In other words, you’ll need Airflow’s Snowflake provider (apache-airflow-providers-snowflake ) in order to see the Snowflake ConnType in the Airflow UI.

Can you try adding that? If you’re running an Airflow Deployment on Astro that’s already on Airflow 2.0, simply add the package ( apache-airflow-providers-snowflake ) into your requirements.txt file and deploy to Astronomer or to your local environment.

Here’s another forum post with more detail on the exact same question - Snowflake connection type missing from dropdown menu in Airflow 2.0. Let me know if this helps :slightly_smiling_face:
