Enabling HTTPS

When your organization uses deployed Transformer for Snowflake engines, you can enable the engines to use the HTTPS protocol.

By default, the Control Hub web browser uses WebSocket tunneling to communicate with deployed Transformer for Snowflake engines. WebSocket tunneling ensures that your data is secure and does not require additional setup.

However, when you preview a pipeline, your source data does pass through encrypted connections beyond your corporate network into Control Hub, and then back to your web browser. If your data must remain behind a firewall due to corporate regulations, you can configure the browser to use direct engine REST APIs to directly communicate with the engines behind the firewall.

When using direct engine REST APIs, you must enable the deployed Transformer for Snowflake engine to use the HTTPS protocol. For more information about enabling HTTPS for Transformer for Snowflake, see the Control Hub documentation.
