Get Started with Hasura Cloud and Amazon Athena
Step 1: Create an account on Hasura Cloud and create a new Hasura Project
Navigate to cloud.hasura.io, and create a new Hasura Cloud account.
Once you create a project on Hasura Cloud, hit the "Launch Console" button to open the Hasura Console for your project.
Step 2: Add your Amazon Athena database as a source to Hasura
Head to the
Data > Manage databases section on the Console to add your Amazon Athena database as a source to Hasura.
- Allow public connections or whitelist the Hasura Cloud IP on your Amazon Athena firewall: This is good for testing and will allow you to quickly try Hasura out with your database!
- VPC peering: VPC peering and private network access is available on Hasura Cloud paid tiers: Recommended for production. Get in touch with us if you'd like to try this out against your existing databases!
Now begin by clicking "Connect Database":
Next, choose the
athena (Beta) driver:
Finally, enter your Amazon Athena database URL and database schema:
Once you add the Amazon Athena service, you'll see it listed as an available database on the sidebar.
Step 3: Track existing tables
To query against your Amazon Athena service using Hasura, you'll need to have existing tables to select. Those tables will appear under the database as shown.
Track tables selectively or all so that Hasura can introspect the tables and create the corresponding GraphQL schema. Once you've selected the tables you'd like to track, click "Track Selected" to finish setup:
Step 4: Try out a GraphQL query
Head to the
API tab in the Console and try running a GraphQL query! Use the explorer sidebar on GraphQL to get help in
creating a GraphQL query.
