Amazon Web Services (AWS) is changing their security to rely on the AWS Certificate Manager (ACM), and we wanted to give you a heads up about the change happening October 23, 2017.
What are you changing!?!?!
We're staying compatible with the latest Redshift drivers. But the certificate update means outdated drivers are no longer supported.
What does this mean for me?
Well, before October 23, we need you to update to the Lastest Amazon Redshift ODBC driver so we can continue to provide you support.
If I don't update, what happens?
Since the certificate functionality is being replaced, you won't be able to connect to your RedShift instance. It won't hurt your data, but it will lock it away with a sign saying "Go update your driver".
"But my data is in there..."
However, there is another option if you REALLY don't want to update your driver. Amazon has provided a way to configure your old drivers, which you can find under Using Earlier Amazon Redshift drivers. With that, you'll be able to access your data. Alteryx still won't support the older drivers though, so keep that in mind.
Will anything look different after I update?
Nope! Everything will work the same, and your performance and instance availability won't really be impacted. It's going to be great.
