To set up a zero code ETL environment to ingest data from an API into Redshift using Lambda, here is what you can do: -Create a Lambda function using Python runtime. The function code should make an API call, parse the response and insert the data into a Redshift table. -Grant the Lambda execution role permissions to call the API, insert into Redshift and any other dependent services. -Create an API Gateway REST API and integrate it with the Lambda function using Lambda proxy integration. -Configure the API Gateway stage for public access. -Schedule the API Gateway endpoint URL using EventBridge or CloudWatch Events to trigger the Lambda function on a periodic basis.

This allows ingesting API data into Redshift in a serverless manner without having to write any ETL code. The API Gateway endpoint acts as the trigger that executes the Lambda function which fetches data and loads it into Redshift.
