Testing an AWS Glue connection - AWS Glue

Testing an AWS Glue connection


To test a connection, you must use the Connections (legacy) page in the AWS Glue console. AWS Glue Studio does not currently support testing a connection.

As a best practice, before you use an AWS Glue connection in an extract, transform, and load (ETL) job, use the AWS Glue console to test the connection. AWS Glue uses the parameters in your connection to confirm that it can access your data store, and reports any errors. For information about AWS Glue connections, see Defining connections in the AWS Glue Data Catalog.

To test an AWS Glue connection

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS Glue console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/glue/.

  2. In the navigation pane, under Legacy pages, choose Connections (legacy).

  3. Select the check box next to the desired connection, and then choose Test connection.

  4. In the Test connection dialog box, select a role or choose Create IAM role to go to the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) console to create a new role. The role must have permissions on the data store.

  5. Choose Test connection.

    The test begins and can take several minutes to complete. If the test fails, choose logs in the banner at the top of the screen to view the Amazon CloudWatch Logs.

    You must have the required IAM permissions to view the logs. For more information, see AWS Managed (Predefined) Policies for CloudWatch Logs in the Amazon CloudWatch Logs User Guide.
