Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Athena CreateDataCatalog API operation.

Syntax

New-ATHDataCatalog
-Name <String>
-Description <String>
-Parameter <Hashtable>
-Tag <Tag[]>
-Type <DataCatalogType>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Creates (registers) a data catalog with the specified name and properties. Catalogs created are visible to all users of the same Amazon Web Services account.

Parameters

-Description <String>
A description of the data catalog to be created.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Name <String>
The name of the data catalog to create. The catalog name must be unique for the Amazon Web Services account and can use a maximum of 127 alphanumeric, underscore, at sign, or hyphen characters. The remainder of the length constraint of 256 is reserved for use by Athena.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-Parameter <Hashtable>
Specifies the Lambda function or functions to use for creating the data catalog. This is a mapping whose values depend on the catalog type.
  • 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 takes a catalog ID parameter and is required. The catalog_id is the account ID of the Amazon Web Services account to which the Glue Data Catalog belongs.catalog-id=catalog_id
    • The GLUE data catalog type also applies to the default AwsDataCatalog that already exists in your account, of which you can have only one and cannot modify.
    • Queries that specify a Glue Data Catalog other than the default AwsDataCatalog must be run on Athena engine version 2.
    • In Regions where Athena engine version 2 is not available, creating new Glue data catalogs results in an INVALID_INPUT error.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesParameters
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the Name parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^Name' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The cmdlet doesn't have a return value by default. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.Athena.Model.CreateDataCatalogResponse). Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Tag <Tag[]>
A list of comma separated tags to add to the data catalog that is created.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesTags
The type of data catalog to create: LAMBDA for a federated catalog, HIVE for an external hive metastore, or GLUE for an Glue Data Catalog.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesStoredCredentials, AWSProfileName
-Region <Object>
The system name of an AWS region or an AWSRegion instance. This governs the endpoint that will be used when calling service operations. Note that the AWS resources referenced in a call are usually region-specific.
Required?False
Position?Named

AliasesRegionToCall
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesSK, SecretAccessKey
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
