Amazon Redshift now allows you to schedule your SQL queries for executions in recurring schedules and enables you to build event-driven applications by integrating with Amazon EventBridge. You can now schedule time sensitive or long running queries, loading or unloading your data, or refreshing your materialized views on a regular schedule.

You can use the Amazon Redshift Console or Amazon Redshift Data API to schedule your SQL queries. You can use flexible scheduling expressions for your schedule, including cron expressions. The query scheduling is secured as you can either leverage your IAM credentials or secrets stored in AWS Secrets Manager. For more information, including instructions on getting started with scheduling SQL in Amazon Redshift, please read the Amazon Redshift documentation or watch this demo.

The feature is available in all commercial regions except Africa (Cape Town) and Asia Pacific (Osaka) regions.
