This document describes the steps to connect Amazon Redshift data warehouse (cloud services) using generic JDBC connection.

Step 1:

To connect with AWS RedShift using JDBC, you need to have redshift JDBC drivers or supporting drivers from vendor.

You can download JDBC drivers from amazon portal based on version.

http://docs.aws.amazon.com/redshift/latest/mgmt/configure-jdbc-connection.html

Here is the direct link to download .Jar file which supports to connect from BI4.1 direct tools.

https://s3.amazonaws.com/redshift-downloads/drivers/RedshiftJDBC4-1.1.1.0001.jar

Step 2:

Place the downloaded .JAR file where business objects installed (client/server).

C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\drivers\java

Step 3:

Open ‘jdbc.sbo’ file under C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc in notepad/xml editor and add below code to the file:

<ClassPath>

                <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\drivers\java\RedshiftJDBC4-1.1.1.0001.jar</Path>

</ClassPath>

This looks like below:

                                <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\drivers\java\RedshiftJDBC4-1.1.1.0001.jar</Path>

<Parameter Name="Array Fetch Size">10</Parameter>

</DataBase>

    </DataBases>

</DriverConfiguration>

Step 4:

Create universe connection in IDT/UDT.

New > Relational connection

Provide name and click on next.

Select type of connection and click next.

Provide User Name, Password, JDBC URL and JDBC Class Details here.

Note: You JDBC URL should include the database name

JDBC URL: jdbc:redshift://xxxxx.redshift.amazonaws.com:0000/database

JDBC Class: com.amazon.redshift.jdbc4.Driver

Now test connection.

 

Click Finish to create connection.

Note: You can use other drivers like postgresql/Greenplum also to connect redshift.
