  • config – Configurations for the AWS Glue crawler

  • aws_conn_id – The Airflow connection used for AWS credentials. If this is None or empty then the default boto3 behaviour is used. If running Airflow in a distributed manner and aws_conn_id is None or empty, then default boto3 configuration would be used (and must be maintained on each worker node).

  • poll_interval (int) – Time (in seconds) to wait between two consecutive calls to check crawler status

  • wait_for_completion (bool) – Whether to wait for crawl execution completion. (default: True)

  • deferrable (bool) – If True, the operator will wait asynchronously for the crawl to complete. This implies waiting for completion. This mode requires aiobotocore module to be installed. (default: False)
