​Reverse Engineer Data Model from Snowflake?



First post / new member - apologies if I'm doing this wrong.

SAP PowerDesigner seems to support Snowflake, but the Reverse Engineering option is not importing some table/ column properties. It gets the table and column information but misses the FK and column length precision.

Here's what I'm doing:

- Open PowerDesigner (version 16.7 SP03)

- File->Reverse Engineer->Database

- Choose DBMS = Snowflake

- Provide ODBC credentials to my Snowflake

- Select my tables from the Database Reverse Engineering list of database tables

- They import

- Open a table and go - None of the FKs are imported neither column length precision

Is this a known bug/limitation with Snowflake reverse engineer?

If so, is there a patch? I need to do a reverse engineering for our Snowflake data warehouses, and we need a full Reverse Engineer capability to minimize manual interventions and validation.

If not, what am I doing wrong?
