RestoreDBClusterToPointInTime - Amazon Relational Database Service
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

RestoreDBClusterToPointInTime

Restores a DB cluster to an arbitrary point in time. Users can restore to any point in time before LatestRestorableTime for up to BackupRetentionPeriod days. The target DB cluster is created from the source DB cluster with the same configuration as the original DB cluster, except that the new DB cluster is created with the default DB security group.

Note

For Aurora, this action only restores the DB cluster, not the DB instances for that DB cluster. You must invoke the CreateDBInstance action to create DB instances for the restored DB cluster, specifying the identifier of the restored DB cluster in DBClusterIdentifier. You can create DB instances only after the RestoreDBClusterToPointInTime action has completed and the DB cluster is available.

For more information on Amazon Aurora DB clusters, see What is Amazon Aurora? in the Amazon Aurora User Guide.

For more information on Multi-AZ DB clusters, see Multi-AZ deployments with two readable standby DB instances in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

EngineMode

The engine mode of the new cluster. Specify provisioned or serverless, depending on the type of the cluster you are creating. You can create an Aurora Serverless v1 clone from a provisioned cluster, or a provisioned clone from an Aurora Serverless v1 cluster. To create a clone that is an Aurora Serverless v1 cluster, the original cluster must be an Aurora Serverless v1 cluster or an encrypted provisioned cluster.

Valid for: Aurora DB clusters only

Type: String

Required: No

Iops

The amount of Provisioned IOPS (input/output operations per second) to be initially allocated for each DB instance in the Multi-AZ DB cluster.

For information about valid Iops values, see Amazon RDS Provisioned IOPS storage to improve performance in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

Constraints: Must be a multiple between .5 and 50 of the storage amount for the DB instance.

Valid for: Multi-AZ DB clusters only

Type: Integer

Required: No

KmsKeyId

The Amazon KMS key identifier to use when restoring an encrypted DB cluster from an encrypted DB cluster.

The Amazon KMS key identifier is the key ARN, key ID, alias ARN, or alias name for the KMS key. To use a KMS key in a different Amazon Web Services account, specify the key ARN or alias ARN.

You can restore to a new DB cluster and encrypt the new DB cluster with a KMS key that is different from the KMS key used to encrypt the source DB cluster. The new DB cluster is encrypted with the KMS key identified by the KmsKeyId parameter.

If you don't specify a value for the KmsKeyId parameter, then the following occurs:

  • If the DB cluster is encrypted, then the restored DB cluster is encrypted using the KMS key that was used to encrypt the source DB cluster.

  • If the DB cluster isn't encrypted, then the restored DB cluster isn't encrypted.

If DBClusterIdentifier refers to a DB cluster that isn't encrypted, then the restore request is rejected.

Valid for: Aurora DB clusters and Multi-AZ DB clusters

Type: String

Required: No

NetworkType

The network type of the DB cluster.

Valid values:

  • IPV4

  • DUAL

The network type is determined by the DBSubnetGroup specified for the DB cluster. A DBSubnetGroup can support only the IPv4 protocol or the IPv4 and the IPv6 protocols (DUAL).

For more information, see Working with a DB instance in a VPC in the Amazon Aurora User Guide.

Valid for: Aurora DB clusters only

Type: String

Required: No

OptionGroupName

The name of the option group for the new DB cluster.

DB clusters are associated with a default option group that can't be modified.

Type: String

Required: No

Port

The port number on which the new DB cluster accepts connections.

Constraints: A value from 1150-65535.

Default: The default port for the engine.

Valid for: Aurora DB clusters and Multi-AZ DB clusters

Type: Integer

Required: No

PubliclyAccessible

A value that indicates whether the DB cluster is publicly accessible.

When the DB cluster is publicly accessible, its Domain Name System (DNS) endpoint resolves to the private IP address from within the DB cluster's virtual private cloud (VPC). It resolves to the public IP address from outside of the DB cluster's VPC. Access to the DB cluster is ultimately controlled by the security group it uses. That public access is not permitted if the security group assigned to the DB cluster doesn't permit it.

When the DB cluster isn't publicly accessible, it is an internal DB cluster with a DNS name that resolves to a private IP address.

Default: The default behavior varies depending on whether DBSubnetGroupName is specified.

If DBSubnetGroupName isn't specified, and PubliclyAccessible isn't specified, the following applies:

  • If the default VPC in the target Region doesn’t have an internet gateway attached to it, the DB cluster is private.

  • If the default VPC in the target Region has an internet gateway attached to it, the DB cluster is public.

If DBSubnetGroupName is specified, and PubliclyAccessible isn't specified, the following applies:

  • If the subnets are part of a VPC that doesn’t have an internet gateway attached to it, the DB cluster is private.

  • If the subnets are part of a VPC that has an internet gateway attached to it, the DB cluster is public.

Valid for: Multi-AZ DB clusters only

Type: Boolean

Required: No

RestoreToTime

The date and time to restore the DB cluster to.

Valid Values: Value must be a time in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) format

Constraints:

  • Must be before the latest restorable time for the DB instance

  • Must be specified if UseLatestRestorableTime parameter isn't provided

  • Can't be specified if the UseLatestRestorableTime parameter is enabled

  • Can't be specified if the RestoreType parameter is copy-on-write

Example: 2015-03-07T23:45:00Z

Valid for: Aurora DB clusters and Multi-AZ DB clusters

Type: Timestamp

Required: No

RestoreType

The type of restore to be performed. You can specify one of the following values:

  • full-copy - The new DB cluster is restored as a full copy of the source DB cluster.

  • copy-on-write - The new DB cluster is restored as a clone of the source DB cluster.

Constraints: You can't specify copy-on-write if the engine version of the source DB cluster is earlier than 1.11.

If you don't specify a RestoreType value, then the new DB cluster is restored as a full copy of the source DB cluster.

Valid for: Aurora DB clusters and Multi-AZ DB clusters

Type: String
