Project description

This tool accepts either a Redshift username and password OR an AWS Access Key ID and Secret Key.

If you use the IAM Access/Secret method, the user that you are referencing MUST have the correct policy to get temporary credentials from the database. For example:

  "Statement": {
    "Effect": "Allow",
    "Action": "redshift:GetClusterCredentials",
    "Resource": [


python -m redshiftsql host dbname user file --password password --port port


python -m redshiftsql host dbname user file --aws-access-key-id aws-access-key-id --aws-secret-key aws-secret-key --cluster-name cluster-name --port port


  • host The Redshift endpoint, minus the port

  • dbname The Redshift database to connect to

  • user The Redshift user

  • password The Redshift password. Ignored if aws-access-key-id is present
