Redash datasource connection test fails

Issue Summary

redash datasource connection fails after redash running for a few days

Technical details:

We are running redash using EKS. After the application runs for several days, the datasources become reachable. Normally we can get the connections back after we restart the redash_adhocworker. But today, I cannot get any datasource connection back after I restarted the whole stack

  • Redash Version: 11.0.0-dev
  • Browser/OS: latest chrome or firefox
  • How did you install Redash: on EKS

The Datasource connection test fails with error:

Connection Test Failed:
Parameter validation failed: Unknown parameter in QueryExecutionContext: “Catalog”, must be one of: Database

I am not sure what parameter it is complaining about. I really appreciate it If anyone can give any suggestion.

The redash adhocworker node log:

I’ve found the same issue.
As I explored some codes, this seems to be caused by PyAthena, not Redash.

I guess this trouble is occurred in here, and I was able to get around it by changing specified version of PyAthena as below.


I’m going to seek more efficient solution or create Pull Request for quick fix.

I hope this is helpful for you.
