  • An finally choose an IAM Role.
  • Rest keep everything as it is.
  • Scroll down and click on Next.
  • A screen like the one below will pop up and ask you to make connections. My Python Script doesn’t require any connection, so I will not select any of the connections.
  • You can click on Save job and edit script.

  • Now you can see that I imported pandas and numpy in my code and these are not already present in the Glue environment.
  • So now we will add these libraries to our environment.

Steps to include external libraries:

  • Open Job details.
  • Scroll down and click on Advanced Properties.
  • Scroll down and under Job Parameters click on ‘Add new parameter’.
  • Under Key add ‘–additional-python-modules’ and under Value add comma-separated libraries.
  • Click on Save.
