SELECT * FROM svv_redshift_tables WHERE database_name = 'tickit_db' AND TABLE_NAME LIKE 'tickit_%' ORDER BY database_name, TABLE_NAME; database_name | schema_name | table_name | table_type | table_acl | remarks | table_owner --------------+-------------+--------------------------+------------+-----------+---------+----------- tickit_db | public | tickit_category_redshift | TABLE | | + tickit_db | public | tickit_date_redshift | TABLE | | + tickit_db | public | tickit_event_redshift | TABLE | | + tickit_db | public | tickit_listing_redshift | TABLE | | + tickit_db | public | tickit_sales_redshift | TABLE | | + tickit_db | public | tickit_users_redshift | TABLE | | + tickit_db | public | tickit_venue_redshift | TABLE | |
