Amazon Athena

Connections to an Amazon Athena database are made by selecting Amazon Athena from the list of connectors in the QlikView ODBC Connection dialog or the Qlik Sense Add data or Data load editor dialogs.

Database connectors enable QlikView and Qlik Sense to efficiently load data into a Qlik app from a database accessed through a supported ODBC driver, such as Amazon Athena. You do not need to create a DSN connection before connecting to an Amazon Athena database.

Note: Industry-accepted best practices must be followed when using or allowing access through the ODBC Connector. Administrators must follow The Principle of Least Privilege when setting up source database privileges and permissions.
