Load data

Loading data into Firebolt is described in the Getting started tutorial and consists of three steps.

  1. To provide Firebolt with the right permissions to load data from your Amazon S3 bucket, you must create AWS access keys and secret IDs. For instructions on how to create the access key credentials in AWS, see Creating Access Key and Secret ID.

  2. Using the credentials created above, you can now load your data into Firebolt using the COPY FROM command. For information on its syntax and parameters, click here.

  3. Loading data into Firebolt is also performed using external tables. To learn more about how to run the CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE command to load your data into Firebolt, see Work With External Tables.
