[ aws . athena ]

get-data-catalog

Description

Returns the specified data catalog.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-data-catalog
--name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name of the data catalog to return.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To return information about a data catalog

The following get-data-catalog example returns information about the dynamo_db_catalog data catalog.

aws athena get-data-catalog \
    --name dynamo_db_catalog

Output:

{
    "DataCatalog": {
        "Name": "dynamo_db_catalog",
        "Description": "DynamoDB Catalog",
        "Type": "LAMBDA",
        "Parameters": {
            "catalog": "dynamo_db_catalog",
            "metadata-function": "arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:111122223333:function:dynamo_db_lambda",
            "record-function": "arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:111122223333:function:dynamo_db_lambda"
        }
    }

  • For the HIVE data catalog type, use the following syntax. The metadata-function parameter is required. The sdk-version parameter is optional and defaults to the currently supported version. ``metadata-function=*lambda_arn* , sdk-version=*version_number* ``
  • For the LAMBDA data catalog type, use one of the following sets of required parameters, but not both.
    • If you have one Lambda function that processes metadata and another for reading the actual data, use the following syntax. Both parameters are required. ``metadata-function=*lambda_arn* , record-function=*lambda_arn* ``
    • If you have a composite Lambda function that processes both metadata and data, use the following syntax to specify your Lambda function. ``function=*lambda_arn* ``
  • The GLUE type has no parameters.
