This is a quick update on the latest features for RAthena and noctua 2.6.0.

Latest Features:

Endpoint Override:

Introducing a new parameter within the function dbConnect, endpoint_override. This allows RAthena/noctua to override each AWS service endpoint they connect to. RAthena/noctua connect to the following AWS services:

# RAthena implementation

# Change AWS Athena endpoint only
con <- dbConnect(RAthena::athena(),
  endpoint_override = "https://athena.us-east-1.amazonaws.com"

# Change a different AWS service
con <- dbConnect(RAthena::athena(), endpoint_override = list(
    glue = "https://glue.us-east-1.amazonaws.com"

# Change multiple services
con <- dbConnect(RAthena::athena(), endpoint_override = list(
    athena = "https://athena.us-east-1.amazonaws.com",
    glue = "https://glue.us-east-1.amazonaws.com",
    s3 = "https://s3.us-east-1.amazonaws.com"

Note noctua has the same implementation when using:

con <- dbConnect(noctua::athena(), ...)

Clear AWS S3 resource:

Minor update to allow users to turn off the clear down of AWS s3 resource created by AWS Athena.

# RAthena implementation
RAthena::RAthena_options(clear_s3_resource = FALSE)

# noctua implementation
noctua::noctua_options(clear_s3_resource = FALSE)
