To access the AWS data pipeline first we have to create an AWS account on the website.  

  • From the AWS webpage, we have to go to the data pipeline and then we have to select the ‘Create New Pipeline’.
  • Then we have to add personal information whatever it has asked for. Here we have to select ‘Incremental copy from MYSQL RDS to Redshift.
  • Then we have to write all the data which are asked in the parameters for RDS MYSQL details.
  • Then arrange the Redshift connection framework.
  • We have to schedule the application to run or we can access it for one time run through activation.
  • After that, we have to approve the logging form. This is very useful for troubleshooting projects.
  • The last step is just to activate it and we are ready to use it.
