Redshift Snap Pack


Amazon Redshift is a data warehousing service in the cloud.

Use Snaps in this Snap Pack to:

  • Lookup records in the target Redshift table and return a selected set of fields for every matched record.
  • Output a list of tables in a database.
  • Fetch data from a database by providing a table name and configuring the connection. 
  • Execute a Redshift bulk load or bulk upsert.
  • Execute a SQL delete, a SQL Insert statement, or a SQL update.
  • Provide functionality of SCD (Slowly Changing Dimension) Type 2 on the target Redshift table.


  • Redshift operations against Redshift system views and tables are not supported.

  • If you use the PostgreSQL driver (org.postgresql.Driver) with the Redshift Snap Pack, it could result in errors if the data type provided to the Snap does not match the data type in the Redshift table schema. Either use the Redshift driver ( or use the correct data type in the input document to resolve these errors.

Redshift IAM Account Setup

  • If the EC2 plex (where your pipeline is running with an IAM role), Redshift cluster, and S3 bucket are in the same AWS account, then you must use the SnapLogic Redshift Account (regular IAM Account).
  • If the EC2 plex (where your pipeline is running with an IAM role) is in one account and the Redshift cluster and S3 bucket are in a different AWS account, you must use the SnapLogic Redshift Cross-Account IAM Role Account to run your pipelines successfully.

This applies only to the Redshift - Bulk Load, Redshift - Unload, and Redshift - S3 Upsert Snaps.

Supported Versions

This Snap Pack is tested against:

  • PostgreSQL 8.0.2
  • Redshift 1.0.21556 (Redshift-JDBC 42-

  • The JDBC driver class for Redshift accounts is bundled with the as the default driver. This upgrade is backward-compatible. The existing pipelines will continue to work as expected and the new pipelines will use the Redshift Driver as the default driver. SnapLogic will support providing fixes for the issues you might encounter with accounts that use the PostgreSQL driver only until November 2023.
    After November 2023, SnapLogic will not provide support for the issues with the PostgreSQL driver. Therefore, we recommend you to migrate from the PostgreSQL JDBC driver to the Redshift JDBC driver. Learn more about migrating from the PostgreSQL JDBC Driver to the Amazon Redshift Driver. (432patches20101)

  • The Instance type option in the Redshift Bulk Load Snap enables you to use the Amazon EC2 R6a instance. This property appears only when the parallelism value is greater than one.
