Connect to Redshift databases from Airplane tasks and runbooks.
The Redshift resource allows tasks and runbooks to connect to a Redshift database. For a high-level introduction to resources, see the resources page.

Creating a Redshift resource

To create a new Redshift resource, visit resources for your team, click the "New" button, and select the Redshift resource type. Enter your connection details in the form:
Name should be a human-readable name for your resource.
Host should be the IP address or DNS name of your database. Unless you're connecting to this database behind a self-hosted agent (see Private Networking below), this should be the public IP address and/or the public DNS name of the database. You can find this in the AWS Redshift console under the Configuration section.

IP whitelisting

If your database has restrictions on incoming network connections, you'll need to ensure the Airplane IP addresses are whitelisted:

Private networking

To connect to a database inside a private VPC, you can self-host the agent and run the agent within your own VPC. Since tasks and SQL queries run on agents, these tasks will run from within your network and be able to connect.
