Connect to Amazon Redshift

To access an Amazon Redshift database, you should obtain the proper credentials from your administrator.  In particular you'll need to know your Access Key, Secret Access Key, and the Region for the instance.


Give a meaningful name to the connection:

You also must specify the cluster identifier and database name.



Then go to the Authentication tab, and paste the Access Key ID received from your administrator, and Secret Access Key for your IAM.  Finally, select the appropriate region where your Redshift cluster is located.

If you wish to handle AWS authentication through the credentials file, you may leave blank the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key fields, knowing that Hackolade supplies credentials following the recommendations described here.
