Redshift Table Settings

If you are creating a publishing action for a Redshift database table in the Run Job page, you must provide the following information.


Some Alteryx data types may be exported to Redshift using different data types. For more information, see Redshift Data Type Conversions.


  1. Select location: Navigate the Redshift browser to select the schema and table to which to publish.

    1. To create a new table, click Create a new table.

  2. Select table options:

    1. Table name:

      1. New table: enter a name for it. You may use a pre-existing table name, and schema checks are performed against it.

      2. Existing table: you cannot modify the name.

    2. Output database: To change the database to which you are publishing, click the Redshift icon in the sidebar. Select a different database.

    3. Publish actions: Select one of the following.

      1. Create new table every run: Each run generates a new table with a timestamp appended to the name.

      2. Append to this table every run: Each run adds any new results to the end of the table.

      3. Truncate the table every run: With each run, all data in the table is truncated and replaced with any new results.

      4. Drop the table every run: With each run, the table is dropped (deleted), and all data is deleted. A new table with the same name is created, and any new results are added to it.

  3. To save the publishing action, click Add.
