Control-M for AWS Glue

AWS Glue is a cloud-based ETL and data integration service that allows you to create data-driven workflows to automate the movement and transformation of data. 

Control-M for AWS Glue enables you to do the following:

  • Connect to any AWS Glue endpoint from a single computer with secure login, which eliminates the need to provide authentication.
  • Integrate AWS Glue  jobs with other Control-M jobs into a single scheduling environment.
  • Trigger AWS Glue jobs based on ETL processing.
  • Wait for Control-M MFT to transfer a file to an S3 bucket and then run an AWS Glue job based on the result or vice versa. 
  • Attach an SLA job to your entire AWS Glue pipeline.
  • Introduce all Control-M capabilities to AWS Glue, including advanced scheduling criteria, complex dependencies, quantitative and control resources, and variables.
  • Run 50 AWS Glue jobs simultaneously per Control-M/Agent.

Setting up Control-M for AWS Glue

This procedure describes how to deploy the AWS Glue plug-in, create a connection profile, and define an AWS Glue job in Control-M Web and Automation API.

NOTE: Integration plug-ins released by BMC require an Application Integrator installation at your site. However, these plug-ins are not editable and you cannot import them into Application Integrator. To deploy these integrations to your Control-M environment, you import them directly into Control-M using Control-M Automation API.

Before you Begin

Verify that Automation API is installed, as described in Automation API Installation.


  1. Create a temporary directory to save the downloaded files.

  2. Click and follow the instructions on the EPD site to download the AWS Glue plug-in, or go directly to the Control-M for AWS Glue download page.

  3. Deploy the AWS Glue job via Automation API, as described in deploy jobtype.
  4. Create an AWS Glue connection profile in Control-M Web or Automation API, as follows:
