Using Athena data source connectors - Amazon Athena

Using Athena data source connectors

This section lists prebuilt Athena data source connectors that you can use to query a variety of data sources external to Amazon S3. To use a connector in your Athena queries, configure it and deploy it to your account.


Before you start, note the following points:

  • To use the Amazon Athena Federated Query feature, set your workgroup to Athena engine version 2. For steps, see Changing Athena engine versions.

  • Some prebuilt connectors require that you create a VPC and a security group before you can use the connector. For information about creating VPCs, see Creating a VPC for a data source connector.

  • To use the Athena Federated Query feature with AWS Secrets Manager, you must configure an Amazon VPC private endpoint for Secrets Manager. For more information, see Create a Secrets Manager VPC private endpoint in the AWS Secrets Manager User Guide.
