Redshift

Overview

The Redshift source supports Full Refresh syncs. That is, every time a sync is run, Airbyte will copy all rows in the tables and columns you set up for replication into the destination in a new table.
This Redshift source connector is built on top of the source-jdbc code base and is configured to rely on JDBC 4.2 standard drivers provided by Amazon via Mulesoft here as described in Redshift documentation here.

Sync overview

Resulting schema

The Redshift source does not alter the schema present in your warehouse. Depending on the destination connected to this source, however, the schema may be altered. See the destination's documentation for more details.

Incremental Sync

Incremental sync (copying only the data that has changed) for this source is coming soon.

Getting started

Requirements

  1. 1.
    Active Redshift cluster
  2. 2.
    Allow connections from Airbyte to your Redshift cluster (if they exist in separate VPCs)

Setup guide

1. Make sure your cluster is active and accessible from the machine running Airbyte

This is dependent on your networking setup. The easiest way to verify if Airbyte is able to connect to your Redshift cluster is via the check connection tool in the UI. You can check AWS Redshift documentation with a tutorial on how to properly configure your cluster's access here

2. Fill up connection info

Next is to provide the necessary information on how to connect to your cluster such as the host whcih is part of the connection string or Endpoint accessible here without the port and database name (it typically includes the cluster-id, region and end with .redshift.amazonaws.com).

Encryption

All Redshift connections are encrypted using SSL
