Creating resource links - AWS Lake Formation

Creating resource links

Resource links are Data Catalog objects that are links to metadata databases and tables—typically to shared databases and tables from other AWS accounts. They help to enable cross-account access to data in the data lake across all AWS Regions.


Lake Formation supports querying Data Catalog tables across AWS Regions. You can access the Data Catalog databases and tables from any AWS Region by creating resource links in those regions that point to shared databases and tables in different Regions.
