    +1 on supporting Redshift SSO. 

    Redshift is currently providing JDBC and ODBC drivers with the requires AWS SDK classes packaged in to provide the side channel communications to a SAML IdP and IAM to perform authentication and temporary credential creation and fectching to pass to Redshift.  As Aginity Workbench for Redshift is essentially a libpq client to Redshift, I expect that the same would need to be added along side libpq to perform the same flow to get temporary credentials to pass to Redshift.

    Would Aginity be able to take this one anytime soon to add Redshift SSO support?

    We, too, are making the move to user management through Okta and are looking to be able to specify the connection string in Aginity.  Any thoughts as to when this feature will be available or thoughts on this feature making it into Aginity in the near future?
