Connect to Data Warehouse Sync using DBeaver

Follow

In order to connect to your reporting data, you will need to connect to AWS Athena. This can be achieved in one of several ways:

  1. Using your business intelligence tool. Your BI tool should have supporting documentation on how to connect.
  2. Using an Amazon-provided driver like Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) or Java Database Connectivity (JDBC).
  3. Using a third-party tool, such as DBeaver.

This guide walks through how to connect to AWS Athena on a Mac using DBeaver. If you are interested in learning more about Data Warehouse Sync, check out the overview page.
