Connect DBeaver to Snowflake via Okta SSO (flatpak / snap)

DBeaver flatpak/snap doesn't allow you to log into Snowflake via browser-based SSO ("externalbrowser"):

The BROWSE action is not supported on the current platform!
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you happen to use Okta, you can use the "Native SSO" feature.

Simply add authenticator driver property, with your Okta instance's URL:

dbeaver driver properties

Username (Main tab) would be your Snowflake username (i.e. select current_user();).

Note browser-based SSO works with the .deb installer - but this method has the benefit of not spamming your browser with new tab every time dbeaver needs to re-authenticate.
