Redshift Access Pattern

Audience: System Administrators

Content Summary: This page describes the Native Redshift access pattern, through which Immuta applies policies directly in Redshift.

For installation instructions, see Add a Native Integration.

Overview

With the Native Redshift access pattern, Immuta applies policies directly in Redshift. This allows data analysts query their data natively with Redshift instead of going through the Immuta Query Engine. Users can configure multiple native Redshift integrations in a single instance of Immuta.

Limitations

  • The host of the data source must match the host of the native connection for the native view to be created.
  • Redshift with Immuta must be a RA3 instance type to support the necessary cross database joins.
  • When using multiple Redshifts, a user will have to have the same user account across all hosts.
