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.

Considerations and limitations

  • 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.

  • Queries that include a predicate take significantly longer to execute. For small datasets, very little data is scanned, and queries take an average of about 2 minutes. However, for large datasets, many queries can time out.

Additional information


The AthenaJdbcConnector (latest version 2022.4.1) has been deprecated. Instead, use a database-specific connector like those for MySQL, Redshift, or PostgreSQL.
