Today I took AWS SAA C03 practice test and there was question about S3 upload of .csv file to convert into another format.
I answered it with S3 –> Lambda etc and it seems marked wrong. Correct answer is AWS Glue, but I couldn’t find information in AWS Documentation about AWS Glue S3 Connector as input source.
Here is the list of source input connectors you can use with Glue and there’s no mention of S3.
Below is the screenshot of Question and answer from exam.

Hi Atul Deshpande,
Thank you for your feedback. I understand your confusion regarding the use of AWS Glue with S3 as an input source. While it’s true that the AWS Glue documentation lists various connectors for data stores, it’s important to note that AWS Glue natively supports Amazon S3 without the need for a specific connector.
AWS Glue can read and write files in Amazon S3, supporting many common data formats stored in Amazon S3 out of the box, including CSV, Avro, JSON, Orc, and Parquet. This means you can use AWS Glue to extract, transform, and load (ETL) your data stored in S3, including converting CSV files to a more efficient format like Apache Parquet.
Here’s a link to an AWS document that supports this statement.
I hope this clears up any confusion. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need further clarification.
