Insert answer submissions as rows in Amazon Redshift

Authentication

To allow Formsort to write to Redshift, create a new user with insert permissions to the schema that contains your data table. You can then add the credentials for the user directly into Formsort.
Do not reuse a user with more permissions than are necessary to INSERT rows - Formsort does not even need SELECT access, and should not have any administrative permissions.
Make sure your Redshift server is set to public! By default, Redshift servers in AWS are set to private.

Schema

Because the Formsort user should not have administrative permissions, you must create it yourself, using a SQL command or the AWS UI.
Create a table named answer_set with the following fields:
Field name
Type
Description
id
INTEGER (IDENTITY)
An auto-incrementing ID, like a primary key.
submitted_at
TIMESTAMPTZ

flow_label

The flow label.
variant_label

The variant label.
variant_revision_uuid

The variant revision UUID.
event_type

The analytics event this answer set corresponds to, either StepCompleted or FlowFinalized
answers
