The Amazon Redshift connector for rudol allows you to connect your Amazon Redshift data warehouses instances.
|Hostname||Publicly accesible Amazon Redshift server hostname|
|Port||Server port number (5439 by default)|
|User||Amazon Redshift user name, see User permissions|
|Password||Amazon Redshift user password|
|Database||Amazon Redshift database you want to connect to|
In order to grant rudol the necessary permissions to fetch your database metadata we recommend you to create a new Amazon Redshift user with access restricted only to the database objects you want to integrate with rudol.
Keep in mind that the created user would have the public Role by default so it will inherit its default permissions
Here is a sample code to create a new user for rudol with minimal permissions for metadata scan:
CREATE USER rudol_user PASSWORD 'My-super-secret-password';
GRANT USAGE ON SCHEMA my_schema TO rudol_user;
If you want to use Data Quality features these permissions won't be enough: you'll have to grant
SELECT to each table you'd like to run tests for.
Restrict connections by IP Address
You can also restrict access to only accept incoming connections from the rudol public IP Address
