Solved: How to change the IAM role in Redshift cluster

In our last post we checked How to create a Redshift Cluster?

In this post we will see how to change the IAM role assigned to Redshift cluster.(Check earlier post to know how to create an IAM role.)

Note: Be careful to test the new role first in dev. Don’t try this in prod directly.

  • First create a role as per your requirement.
  • Next login to Redshift Console . Do check you are in correct region.
  • Select the Cluster by clicking on check box.
  • On the top you will see an option of “Manage IAM Roles”.  Click on that.
  • Select the role you created recently from the drop down and click “Apply Changes”
  • It will take 3-5 minutes to reflect the changes.
