Amazon Athena connection

This article provides a guide on creating an Amazon Athena connection in Upsolver.

Create an Amazon Athena connection

1. Select your credentials:

  • Automatic

  • Role Based

    • ARN Role: The identifier for the IAM role itself. See: IAM Identifiers

    • External ID (optional): This is useful when you need to grant third-party access to your AWS resources.

2. Fill in the query result location with the S3 location to which your query results are written (e.g. s3://company.query-results-bucket/).

The default location for a given region is available under Settings in the Athena console and can be used here if desired.

3. Select your Amazon EC2 region.

4. Finally, name this connection, then click Create.
