With the latest release of JDBC and ODBC drivers for Amazon Athena, you can use Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory (AD) or Ping Identity’s PingFederate for authentication with compatible business intelligence, SQL, or embedded analytics applications.

This release expands the authentication options available to customers using Amazon Athena’s drivers. You can now authenticate using AWS IAM credentials, Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), Microsoft Azure AD, PingFederate, Okta, and custom identity providers.

To download the new drivers, release notes, and documentation, see Using Athena with the JDBC Driver and Connecting to Amazon Athena with ODBC.
