Working with Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA) and Amazon Redshift I was recently looking at some Stack Overflow questions from the AWS Collective and saw a number of folk having questions about the integration between Amazon Redshift and Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA). I thought I would put together a quick post that might help folk address what I saw were some of the common challenges. There is some code that accompanies this post, which you can find at the GitHub repository cdk-mwaa-redshift.

Introduction Inspired by a recent conversation within the Apache Airflow open source slack community, I decided to channel the inner terrier within me to tackle this particular issue, around getting an Apache Airflow operator (the protagonist for this post) to work. I found the perfect catalyst in the way of the original launch post of Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow (MWAA). As is often the way, diving into that post (creating a workflow to take some source files, transform them and then move them into Amazon Redshift) led me down some unexpected paths to here, this post.
