JDBC tutorial prerequisites - AWS Lake Formation

JDBC tutorial prerequisites

Before you begin the AWS Lake Formation JDBC tutorial, ensure that you've done the following:

  • Complete the tasks in Setting up AWS Lake Formation.

  • Decide on a JDBC-accessible data store that you want to use for the tutorial.

  • Gather the information that is required to create an AWS Glue connection of type JDBC. This Data Catalog object includes the URL to the data store, login credentials, and if the data store was created in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), additional VPC-specific configuration information. For more information, see Defining Connections in the AWS Glue Data Catalog in the AWS Glue Developer Guide.

The tutorial assumes that you are familiar with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). For information about IAM, see the IAM User Guide.

To get started, proceed to Step 1: Create the IAM user to be the data analyst.
