Table: snowflake_user_grant - Query Snowflake User Grants using SQL

A User Grant in Snowflake is a permission set that is assigned to a user, allowing them to access and manipulate data within the Snowflake data warehouse. These grants define the level of access a user has to database objects and are crucial for maintaining data security and integrity. User Grants in Snowflake include permissions to perform various operations such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, and more on Snowflake objects.
