Amazon Redshift Connection Properties

Amazon Redshift Connection Properties

When you set up an Amazon Redshift connection, you must configure the connection properties.
The following table describes the Amazon Redshift connection properties:
Property
Description
Name
The name of the connection. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. You can change this property after you create the connection. The name cannot exceed 128 characters, contain spaces, or contain the following special characters:~ ` ! $ % ^ & * ( ) - + = { [ } ] | \ : ; " ' < , > . ? /
ID
String that the Data Integration Service uses to identify the connection. The ID is not case sensitive. It must be 255 characters or less and must be unique in the domain. You cannot change this property after you create the connection. Default value is the connection name.
Description
The description of the connection. The description cannot exceed 4,000 characters.
Location
The domain where you want to create the connection.
Type
The connection type. Select Amazon Redshift in the Database.
The

tab contains the connection attributes of the Amazon Redshift connection. The following table describes the connection attributes:
Property
Description
Username
User name of the Amazon Redshift account.
Password
Password for the Amazon Redshift account.
Schema
Optional. Amazon Redshift schema name. Do not specify the schema name if you want to use multiple schema. The Data Object wizard displays all the user-defined schemas available for the Amazon Redshift objects.
Default is public.
AWS Access Key ID
Amazon S3 bucket access key ID.
Required if you do not use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) authentication.
AWS Secret Access Key
Amazon S3 bucket secret access key ID.
Required if you do not use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) authentication.
Master Symmetric Key
Optional. Provide a 256-bit AES encryption key in the Base64 format when you enable client-side encryption. You can generate a key using a third-party tool.
If you specify a value, ensure that you specify the encryption type as client side encryption in the advanced target properties.
Customer Master Key ID
Optional. Specify the customer master key ID or alias name generated by AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS). You must generate the customer master key corresponding to the region where Amazon S3 bucket resides. You can specify any of the following values:
Customer generated customer master key
Enables client-side or server-side encryption.
Default customer master key
Enables client-side or server-side encryption. Only the administrator user of the account can use the default customer master key ID to enable client-side encryption.
You can use customer master key ID when you run a mapping in the native environment or on the Spark engine.
Cluster Node Type
Node type of the Amazon Redshift cluster.
You can select the following options:
  • ds1.xlarge
  • ds1.8xlarge
  • dc1.large
  • dc1.8xlarge
  • ds2.xlarge
  • ds2.8xlarge
For more information about nodes in the cluster, see the Amazon Redshift documentation.
Number of Nodes in Cluster
Number of nodes in the Amazon Redshift cluster.
For more information about nodes in the cluster, see the Amazon Redshift documentation.
JDBC URL
Amazon Redshift connection URL.
If you upgrade the mappings created in versions 10.1.1 Update 2 or earlier, you must select the relevant schema in the connection property. Else, the mappings fail when you run them on current version.
