awswrangler.catalog.add_parquet_partitions(database: str, table: str, partitions_values: Dict[str, List[str]], catalog_id: Optional[str] = None, compression: Optional[str] = None, boto3_session: Optional[boto3.session.Session] = None, columns_types: Optional[Dict[str, str]] = None) → Any

Add partitions (metadata) to a Parquet Table in the AWS Glue Catalog.


This functions has arguments that can has default values configured globally through wr.config or environment variables:

  • catalog_id

  • database

Check out the Global Configurations Tutorial for details.

  • database (str) – Database name.

  • table (str) – Table name.

  • partitions_values (Dict[str, List[str]]) – Dictionary with keys as S3 path locations and values as a list of partitions values as str (e.g. {‘s3://bucket/prefix/y=2020/m=10/’: [‘2020’, ‘10’]}).
