Connect to an AWS Glue server
In the Big Data Tools window, click and select AWS Glue.
In the Big Data Tools dialog that opens, specify the connection parameters:
Name: the name of the connection to distinguish it between the other connections.
Region: select a region to get buckets from.
Authentication type lets you select the authentication method:
Default credential providers chain: use the credentials from the default provider chain. For more info on the chain, refer to Using the Default Credential Provider Chain.
Explicit access key and secret key: enter your credentials manually.
Profile from credentials file: select a profile from your file. You can also select Use custom configs to use a profile file and credentials file from another directory.
With the Default credential providers chain or Profile from credentials file option selected, you can click Open Credentials to locate the directory where the credential file is stored. If you use the default location, it's usually ~/.aws/credentials on Linux or macOS, or C:\Users\<USERNAME>\.aws\credentials on Windows. Or it can be your custom location if you have selected Use custom configs.
Optionally, you can set up:
Enable connection: deselect if you want to restrict using this connection. By default, the newly created connections are enabled.
HTTP Proxy: select if you want to use IDE proxy settings or if you want to specify custom proxy settings.
Once you fill in the settings, click Test connection to ensure that all configuration parameters are correct. Then click OK.
View databases in the editor
You can open the AWS Glue or its particular catalogs, databases, and tables in a separate tab of the editor (similarly to other storages).
In the Big Data Tools tool window, select a connection to your AWS Glue or expand it to open a catalog, a database, or a table.
Right-click the selected element and select Open in Editor. Alternatively, click .
This will open the selected storage, catalog, database, or table in a separate tab of your editor.
On the right side of the opened tab, use to show and hide the details about the selected element.
Once you have established a connection to the AWS Glue server, the AWS Glue tool window becomes available. You can use it to monitor your databases, view schemas and partitions, and configure the way the data is displayed:
Use the Filter list to show local, foreign, or all databases.
Select a database and click to show or hide columns from the database view.
Click the column headers to sort data by a column.
In the Location column, you can click the database URL to quickly open a directory in an S3 viewer. If the needed connection does not exist, this will open the connection creation form.
