API for Amazon Redshift

ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_RSH

The "TLA" is a Three Letter Abbreviation that appears in ABAP class names, data dictionary objects and other ABAP objects throughout the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP. The TLA for Amazon Redshift is RSH. This TLA helps squeeze ABAP objects into the 30-character length limit of the ABAP data dictionary.


To install the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP, import the Core transport, along with the transport for the Redshift module and other API modules you are interested in. A few modules are included in the Core transport itself. For more information, see the Developer Guide guide.

About The Service

Amazon Redshift


This is an interface reference for Amazon Redshift. It contains documentation for one of the programming or command line interfaces you can use to manage Amazon Redshift clusters. Note that Amazon Redshift is asynchronous, which means that some interfaces may require techniques, such as polling or asynchronous callback handlers, to determine when a command has been applied. In this reference, the parameter descriptions indicate whether a change is applied immediately, on the next instance reboot, or during the next maintenance window. For a summary of the Amazon Redshift cluster management interfaces, go to Using the Amazon Redshift Management Interfaces.

Amazon Redshift manages all the work of setting up, operating, and scaling a data warehouse: provisioning capacity, monitoring and backing up the cluster, and applying patches and upgrades to the Amazon Redshift engine. You can focus on using your data to acquire new insights for your business and customers.

If you are a first-time user of Amazon Redshift, we recommend that you begin by reading the Amazon Redshift Getting Started Guide.

If you are a database developer, the Amazon Redshift Database Developer Guide explains how to design, build, query, and maintain the databases that make up your data warehouse.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for Amazon Redshift, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_RSH_FACTORY=>create(). In this example we will assume you have configured an SDK profile in transaction /AWS1/IMG called ZFINANCE.

DATA(go_session)   = /aws1/cl_rt_session_aws=>create( 'ZFINANCE' ).
DATA(go_rsh)       = /aws1/cl_rsh_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_rsh is an instance of /AWS1/IF_RSH, and all of the operations in the Amazon Redshift service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_RSH.

API Operations

For an overview of ABAP method calls corresponding to API operations in Amazon Redshift, see the Operation List.

Factory Method

/AWS1/CL_RSH_FACTORY=>create( )

Creates an object of type /AWS1/IF_RSH.


Optional arguments:







/AWS1/IF_RSH represents the ABAP client for the Redshift service, representing each operation as a method call. For more information see the API Page page.

Configuring Programmatically

DATA(lo_config) = DATA(go_rsh)->get_config( ).

lo_config is a variable of type /AWS1/CL_RSH_CONFIG. See the documentation for /AWS1/CL_RSH_CONFIG for details on the settings that can be configured.


Waiters for Implementation can be accessed via get_waiter() method followed by the waiter method to be called.

Details about the waiter methods available for service Implementation can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_RSH_WAITER.


Paginators for Amazon Redshift can be created via get_paginator() which returns a paginator object of type /AWS1/IF_RSH_PAGINATOR. The operation method that is being paginated is called using the paginator object, which accepts any necessary parameters to provide to the underlying API operation. This returns an iterator object which can be used to iterate over paginated results using has_next() and get_next() methods.

Details about the paginator methods available for service Amazon Redshift can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_RSH_PAGINATOR.
