Amazon Relational Database Service
Command Line Interface Reference (API Version 2014-10-31)

Welcome

The Amazon RDS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) has been deprecated. Instead, use the AWS CLI for RDS. To learn how to download and use the AWS CLI, see AWS Command Line Interface User Guide. For RDS commands available in the AWS CLI, see AWS CLI Reference for Amazon RDS.

The AWS CLI does not currently support the DownloadCompleteDBLogFile REST API action. To download an entire log file at once, rather than in parts using the download-db-log-file-portion command, use the last published RDS CLI and the rds-download-db-logfile command.

This is the Amazon Relational Database Service Command Line Reference. This section describes who should read this guide, how the guide is organized, and other resources related to Amazon RDS.

Amazon Relational Database Service is often referred to within this guide as "Amazon RDS"; all copyrights and legal protections still apply.
