Amazon Redshift

Integrate with Apono to view existing permissions and create Access Flows to Amazon Redshift clusters

Overview

Amazon Redshift is a fast, scalable, and secure fully managed data warehouse service in the cloud, serving as a primary data store for vast datasets and analytic workloads. Amazon Web Services (AWS) enables businesses to analyze their data using standard SQL and existing business intelligence tools, promoting insightful decision-making and integration with various AWS services.

Through this integration, Apono helps you securely manage access to your Amazon Redshift instance.



Prerequisites

Before starting this integration, create the items listed in the following table.

Item Description

Minimum Required Version: 1.3.2

Use the following steps to update an existing connector.
