Improvement to Existing Components

  • User Defined Functions are now listed in the Expression Editor along with all the built in Redshift functions
  • Enable SSL between your AMI and the Redshift Cluster
  • Variable Exports. Each components can export runtime information into a user-defined variable. That variable can then be used in other components, including the new “If” component to direct the flow of a job
