Get full query logs in redshift serverless


Hi friends, We need to access executed queries in our redshift serverless. It shows there's the sys_query_history table, but the query_text has a 4000 character limits, longer than that would be truncated. Is there another way for getting full query text in Redshift Serverless?

  • The connection log, user log, and user activity log can be enabled by using the AWS Management Console (parameter-group). I do not know if the same is also possible with serverless redshift. But I guess it should!

In Redshift Serverless the Cloudwatch logs will capture the full SQL text. You can enable user activity log from the Namespace configuration tab, under the Security and encryption sub-tab.

Once enabled I was able to capture the query text for a dummy query I ran that was 5990 characters in length.

From Cloudwatch you can enable Export data to Amazon S3 and then run queries on the logs itself.
