How do I filter query results using the WHERE keyword with Redshift python connector?

0

I am using the python connector for Redshift to query my database. Queries work predictably until I attempt to use the WHERE keyword. For example, running the query: "select * from dev.public.test_host WHERE first_column = git" returns

redshift_connector.error.ProgrammingError: {'S': 'ERROR', 'C': '42703', 'M': 'column "git" does not exist in test_host', 'F': '../src/pg/src/backend/parser/parse_expr.c', 'L': '1523', 'R': 'transformColumnRef'}

Another example: "select * from information_schema.tables WHERE table_name = test_host" returns

redshift_connector.error.ProgrammingError: {'S': 'ERROR', 'C': '42703', 'M': 'column "test_host" does not exist in tables', 'F': '../src/pg/src/backend/parser/parse_expr.c', 'L': '1523', 'R': 'transformColumnRef'}

These queries return the correct answer when run in Redshift Query Editor v2. They also return correct answers when run without the 'where' part. Please help.

you need to add single quotes around the string you're filtering for

it would be

= 'git'

and not

= git
