Connect Row Zero to Redshift
In Row Zero click on the 'data source' icon in the right-hand menu and then click the button for 'New data source.'
The connection requires 6 pieces of information defined below.
- Name - This field can be anything that helps identify the data source being connected. (e.g. "Production Data" or "Product Metrics")
- Host - This is the Redshift address that typically takes the form of a string like '12345xyz.redshift.amazonaws.com'.
- Port - This is always 5439.
- User - This is the username for your Redshift database.
- Password - The password used to log into your Redshift Database.
- Database - The name of the Redshift database being connected to.
Once all the information is entered, hit 'Test connection' to ensure the information is correct. If the test connection icon turns green and says 'Connected', proceed by clicking on '+ Add Source.'
Write a query to import data
Now that the Redshift databse is connected to Row Zero, write a query to pull data into the spreadsheet. First select the 'Schema' from the drop down. Write a query in the query editor. The easiest query to write is the 'select *' statement, which pulls in the entire table. Example:
select * from TABLENAME
Row Zero is equipped to handle large data sets and will easily ingest the entirety of a table. Write more complicated queries to pull in various subsets of data stored in a Redshift Database. All results will be displayed in the connected data table in the spreadsheet.
