ExecuteStatement - Amazon Redshift Data API

ExecuteStatement

Runs an SQL statement, which can be data manipulation language (DML) or data definition language (DDL). This statement must be a single SQL statement. Depending on the authorization method, use one of the following combinations of request parameters:

  • AWS Secrets Manager - specify the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the secret, the database name, and the cluster identifier that matches the cluster in the secret.

  • Temporary credentials - specify the cluster identifier, the database name, and the database user name. Permission to call the redshift:GetClusterCredentials operation is required to use this method.
