[ aws . rds ]



Modifies the parameters of a DB cluster parameter group to the default value. To reset specific parameters submit a list of the following: ParameterName and ApplyMethod . To reset the entire DB cluster parameter group, specify the DBClusterParameterGroupName and ResetAllParameters parameters.

When resetting the entire group, dynamic parameters are updated immediately and static parameters are set to pending-reboot to take effect on the next DB instance restart or reboot-db-instance request. You must call reboot-db-instance for every DB instance in your DB cluster that you want the updated static parameter to apply to.

For more information on Amazon Aurora, see Aurora on Amazon RDS in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.
