Connect to Redshift Data in RazorSQL

Connect to Redshift from wizards and query Redshift data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Redshift enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to Redshift using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Redshift Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.redshift.RedshiftDriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:redshift: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      To connect to Redshift, set the following:

      • Server: Set this to the host name or IP address of the cluster hosting the Database you want to connect to.
      • Port: Set this to the port of the cluster.
      • Database: Set this to the name of the database. Or, leave this blank to use the default database of the authenticated user.
      • User: Set this to the username you want to use to authenticate to the Server.
      • Password: Set this to the password you want to use to authenticate to the Server.

      You can obtain the Server and Port values in the AWS Management Console:

      1. Open the Amazon Redshift console (http://console.aws.amazon.com/redshift).
      2. On the Clusters page, click the name of the cluster.
      3. On the Configuration tab for the cluster, copy the cluster URL from the connection strings displayed.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:redshift:User=admin;Password=admin;Database=dev;Server=examplecluster.my.us-west-2.redshift.amazonaws.com;Port=5439;
  3. To connect to Redshift, set the following:

    • Server: Set this to the host name or IP address of the cluster hosting the Database you want to connect to.
    • Port: Set this to the port of the cluster.
    • Database: Set this to the name of the database. Or, leave this blank to use the default database of the authenticated user.
    • User: Set this to the username you want to use to authenticate to the Server.
    • Password: Set this to the password you want to use to authenticate to the Server.

    You can obtain the Server and Port values in the AWS Management Console:

    1. Open the Amazon Redshift console (http://console.aws.amazon.com/redshift).
    2. On the Clusters page, click the name of the cluster.
    3. On the Configuration tab for the cluster, copy the cluster URL from the connection strings displayed.

Query Redshift Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
