Now it's even easier to connect JetBrains IDEs to Amazon RDS or Redshift Databases

Posted on: Sep 25, 2020

With the recent most release of the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains, customers can connect to Amazon RDS or Redshift with only a few clicks. Using the AWS Toolkits for JetBrains, you can use both IAM or credentials in Secrets Manager to connect to Amazon Redshift or RDS databases. You no longer need to have long-lived database credentials, or copy-paste auth tokens from the AWS CLI; credentials are generated by the Toolkit as they are needed instead of being saved to disk.  

Customers can use database features with DataGrip and other premium JetBrains IDEs such as IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate, PyCharm Professional, WebStorm and Rider. 

The AWS Toolkit for JetBrains is an open-source plugin lets you leverage the integrated development environment (IDE) for the creation, debugging, and deployment of software applications on Amazon Web Services. This new feature lists new Amazon RDS and Amazon Redshift nodes in the AWS Explorer feature in the plugin. From the Amazon RDS or Amazon Redshift nodes, you can open an interactive IDE UI to guide you through the database connection. Check out the Toolkit User Guide to get started.

Install the AWS Toolkit and share your feedback using the feedback tool in the IDE plugin or submit feature requests and issues on GitHub.
