Hello i am trying to access AWS redshift server. I have the driver installed


However it seems that i can't initialize the interface The driver works on my system, i verified it via accessing Redshift using the SQLWorkbechJ

thank you very much in advance for any help you could offer, Bernd

  • $\begingroup$ Update: I was able to get the connection working using the latest redshift driver. Unfortunately there is now the following error message: JDBC::error: [Amazon][JDSI](20280) Required setting ConnSchema is not present in connection settings. I have been looking for information on how to provide the ConnSchema information, however could not find anything. Would anyone have any advise ? $\endgroup$ – bernddude Mar 22 '17 at 16:08

The error you're getting,

Required setting ConnSchema is not present in connection settings

is telling you that you need to include the name of the database in the URL. Per the documentation, make sure your URL looks like:


You're probably missing the /database part.

Also, make sure you have a JDK installed.
