ListTables - Amazon Redshift Data API

ListTables

List the tables in a database. If neither SchemaPattern nor TablePattern are specified, then all tables in the database are returned. A token is returned to page through the table list. 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 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.

Request Syntax

{ "ClusterIdentifier": "string", "ConnectedDatabase": "string", "Database": "string", "DbUser": "string", "MaxResults": number, "NextToken": "string", "SchemaPattern": "string", "SecretArn": "string", "TablePattern": "string" }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

Note

In the following list, the required parameters are described first.

ClusterIdentifier

The cluster identifier. This parameter is required when authenticating using either AWS Secrets Manager or temporary credentials.

Type: String

Required: Yes

Database

The name of the database that contains the tables to list. If ConnectedDatabase is not specified, this is also the database to connect to with your authentication credentials.

Type: String

Required: Yes

ConnectedDatabase

A database name. The connected database is specified when you connect with your authentication credentials.

Type: String

Required: No

DbUser

The database user name. This parameter is required when authenticating using temporary credentials.

Type: String

Required: No

MaxResults

The maximum number of tables to return in the response. If more tables exist than fit in one response, then NextToken is returned to page through the results.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 0. Maximum value of 1000.

Required: No

NextToken

A value that indicates the starting point for the next set of response records in a subsequent request. If a value is returned in a response, you can retrieve the next set of records by providing this returned NextToken value in the next NextToken parameter and retrying the command. If the NextToken field is empty, all response records have been retrieved for the request.

Type: String

Required: No

SchemaPattern

A pattern to filter results by schema name. Within a schema pattern, "%" means match any substring of 0 or more characters and "_" means match any one character. Only schema name entries matching the search pattern are returned. If SchemaPattern is not specified, then all tables that match TablePattern are returned. If neither SchemaPattern or TablePattern are specified, then all tables are returned.

Type: String

Required: No

SecretArn

The name or ARN of the secret that enables access to the database. This parameter is required when authenticating using AWS Secrets Manager.

Type: String

Required: No

TablePattern

A pattern to filter results by table name. Within a table pattern, "%" means match any substring of 0 or more characters and "_" means match any one character. Only table name entries matching the search pattern are returned. If TablePattern is not specified, then all tables that match SchemaPatternare returned. If neither SchemaPattern or TablePattern are specified, then all tables are returned.

Type: String

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "NextToken": "string", "Tables": [ { "name": "string", "schema": "string", "type": "string" } ] }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

NextToken

A value that indicates the starting point for the next set of response records in a subsequent request. If a value is returned in a response, you can retrieve the next set of records by providing this returned NextToken value in the next NextToken parameter and retrying the command. If the NextToken field is empty, all response records have been retrieved for the request.

Type: String

Tables

The tables that match the request pattern.

Type: Array of TableMember objects
