How Amazon Redshift uses AWS Secrets Manager

Amazon Redshift is a fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud.

To manage admin credentials for Amazon Redshift, Amazon Redshift can create a managed secret for you. You are charged for that secret. Amazon Redshift also manages rotation for these credentials. For more information, see Managing Amazon Redshift admin passwords using AWS Secrets Manager in the Amazon Redshift Management Guide.

When you call the Amazon Redshift Data API, you can pass credentials for the cluster by using a secret in Secrets Manager. For more information, see Using the Amazon Redshift Data API.

When you use the Amazon Redshift query editor to connect to a database, Amazon Redshift can store your credentials in a Secrets Manager secret with the prefix redshiftqueryeditor.
