AWS Redshift Guide

It only takes a few minutes to get started with Satori. What you need is:

Connect to AWS Redshift via Satori

To connect to Redshift using Satori use the Satori hostname that was generated by the management console which can be found under Satori Hostname in the data store settings view, for example:

Connecting with the JDBC driver

To connect with the JDBC driver, override or add the host parameter in the JDBC URL. For example:

To overcome this, please create a new Other Databases (JDBC) connection (follow the instructions here) and in the JDBC URL value, replace the original value to the value generated for the Redshift data store in the Satori management console.

Connecting with Looker

Looker uses the JDBC driver to connect to Redshift. Override the Remote Host:Port parameter with the Satori hostname. For example:
