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 (PDF).

Comparing DB parameter groups

You can use the Amazon Web Services Management Console to view the differences between two DB parameter groups.

The specified parameter groups must both be DB parameter groups, or they both must be DB cluster parameter groups. This is true even when the DB engine and version are the same. For example, you can't compare an aurora-mysql8.0 (Aurora MySQL version 3) DB parameter group and an aurora-mysql8.0 DB cluster parameter group.

You can compare Aurora MySQL and RDS for MySQL DB parameter groups, even for different versions, but you can't compare Aurora PostgreSQL and RDS for PostgreSQL DB parameter groups.

To compare two DB parameter groups
  1. Sign in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console and open the Amazon RDS console at

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Parameter groups.

  3. In the list, choose the two parameter groups that you want to compare.


    To compare a default parameter group to a custom parameter group, first choose the default parameter group on the Default tab, then choose the custom parameter group on the Custom tab.

  4. From Actions, choose Compare.
