Integrating with AWS
You can configure an integration with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform to allow Cloud Pak for Data as a Service users access to data sources from AWS. Before proceeding, make sure you have proper permissions. For example, you'll need to be able to create services and credentials in the AWS account.
After you configure an integration, you'll see it under Service instances. You'll see a new AWS tab that lists your instances of Redshift and S3.
To configure an integration with AWS:
Log on to the AWS Console.
From the account drop-down at the upper right, select My Security Credentials.
- Under Access keys (access key ID and secret access key), click Create New Access Key.
Copy the key ID and secret.
Important! Write down your key ID and secret and store them in a safe place.
In Cloud Pak for Data as a Service, under Administration > Cloud integrations, go to the AWS tab, enable integration, and then paste the access key ID and access key secret into the appropriate fields.
- If you need to access Redshift, configure firewall access.
- Confirm that you can see your AWS services. From the main menu, choose Services > Services instances. Click the AWS tab to see those services.
Now users who have credentials to your AWS services can create connections to them by selecting them on the Add connection page. Then they can access data from those connections by creating connected data assets.
