AWS Glue Data Catalog

In order to create and work with data lake tables and Apache Iceberg tables within Upsolver, you first need to establish a connection with a metadata store such as Glue Data Catalog.
The tables created from your Glue Data Catalog connection can also be queried from Athena and from within the Upsolver UI.
Note that when you integrate Upsolver with your AWS account, there is a Glue Data Catalog connection created by default, but you may still wish to create your own connection for specific access configurations.
See the how-to guide to Deploy Upsolver on AWS.

Syntax

CREATE GLUE_CATALOG CONNECTION <connection_identifier>
[ { AWS_ROLE = '<role_arn>'
EXTERNAL_ID = '<external_id>'
| AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID = '<key_id>'
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY = '<key>' } ]
DEFAULT_STORAGE_CONNECTION = <identifier>
DEFAULT_STORAGE_LOCATION = 's3://<bucket>/<folder-path>/'
[ REGION = '<region>' ]
[ DATABASE_DISPLAY_FILTER[S] = { '<database_name>' | ('<database_name>' [, ...]) } ]
[ COMMENT = '<comment>' ]

DEFAULT_STORAGE_CONNECTION

Type: identifier
An Amazon S3 connection with the appropriate credentials to write to the DEFAULT_STORAGE_LOCATION provided.

DEFAULT_STORAGE_LOCATION

Type: text
The Amazon S3 path that serves as the default storage location for the underlying files associated with tables created under this metastore connection.

REGION

Type: text
Default: Region in which Upsolver is deployed within your AWS account
(Optional) The region your Glue Catalog is in.

DATABASE_DISPLAY_FILTER[S] — editable

Minimum example

CREATE GLUE_CATALOG CONNECTION my_glue_catalog_connection
DEFAULT_STORAGE_CONNECTION = my_s3_storage_connection
DEFAULT_STORAGE_LOCATION = 's3://sqlake/my_glue_catalog_table_files/';
This example uses the default credentials from Upsolver's integration with AWS.
See the how-to guide to Deploy Upsolver on AWS.
Additionally, this example assumes that you have created the Amazon S3 connection my_s3_storage_connection with proper write permissions to the specified storage location.
Refer to Amazon S3 for more information on creating a connection using SQL.
