Testing an Amazon Glue connection - Amazon Glue
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Testing an Amazon Glue connection


To test a connection, you must use the Connections (legacy) page in the Amazon Glue console. Amazon Glue Studio does not currently support testing a connection.

As a best practice, before you use an Amazon Glue connection in an extract, transform, and load (ETL) job, use the Amazon Glue console to test the connection. Amazon Glue uses the parameters in your connection to confirm that it can access your data store, and reports any errors. For information about Amazon Glue connections, see Defining connections in the Amazon Glue Data Catalog.

To test an Amazon Glue connection

  1. Sign in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console and open the Amazon Glue console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/glue/.

  2. In the navigation pane, under Legacy pages, choose Connections (legacy).

  3. Select the check box next to the desired connection, and then choose Test connection.

  4. In the Test connection dialog box, select a role or choose Create IAM role to go to the Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) console to create a new role. The role must have permissions on the data store.

  5. Choose Test connection.

    The test begins and can take several minutes to complete. If the test fails, choose logs in the banner at the top of the screen to view the Amazon CloudWatch Logs.

    You must have the required IAM permissions to view the logs. For more information, see Amazon Managed (Predefined) Policies for CloudWatch Logs in the Amazon CloudWatch Logs User Guide.
