Description

Creates a new Amazon Aurora DB cluster. You can use the ReplicationSourceIdentifier parameter to create the DB cluster as a Read Replica of another DB cluster or Amazon RDS MySQL DB instance. For cross-region replication where the DB cluster identified by ReplicationSourceIdentifier is encrypted, you must also specify the PreSignedUrl parameter. For more information on Amazon Aurora, see Aurora on Amazon RDS in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

Parameters

-AvailabilityZone <String[]>
A list of EC2 Availability Zones that instances in the DB cluster can be created in. For information on AWS Regions and Availability Zones, see Regions and Availability Zones.

  • Must be a value from 1 to 35
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-CharacterSetName <String>
A value that indicates that the DB cluster should be associated with the specified CharacterSet.
Required?False

Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-DBClusterIdentifier <String>
The DB cluster identifier. This parameter is stored as a lowercase string.Constraints:
  • Must contain from 1 to 63 letters, numbers, or hyphens.
  • First character must be a letter.
  • Cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.
Example: my-cluster1
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )
-DBClusterParameterGroupName <String>
The name of the DB cluster parameter group to associate with this DB cluster. If this argument is omitted, default.aurora5.6 is used. Constraints:
  • If supplied, must match the name of an existing DBClusterParameterGroup.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-DBSubnetGroupName <String>
A DB subnet group to associate with this DB cluster.Constraints: Must match the name of an existing DBSubnetGroup. Must not be default.Example: mySubnetgroup
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-EnableIAMDatabaseAuthentication <Boolean>
True to enable mapping of AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) accounts to database accounts, and otherwise false.Default: false

-KmsKeyId <String>
The AWS KMS key identifier for an encrypted DB cluster.The KMS key identifier is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the KMS encryption key. If you are creating a DB cluster with the same AWS account that owns the KMS encryption key used to encrypt the new DB cluster, then you can use the KMS key alias instead of the ARN for the KMS encryption key.If an encryption key is not specified in KmsKeyId:
  • If ReplicationSourceIdentifier identifies an encrypted source, then Amazon RDS will use the encryption key used to encrypt the source. Otherwise, Amazon RDS will use your default encryption key.
  • If the StorageEncrypted parameter is true and ReplicationSourceIdentifier is not specified, then Amazon RDS will use your default encryption key.
AWS KMS creates the default encryption key for your AWS account. Your AWS account has a different default encryption key for each AWS Region.If you create a Read Replica of an encrypted DB cluster in another AWS Region, you must set KmsKeyId to a KMS key ID that is valid in the destination AWS Region. This key is used to encrypt the Read Replica in that AWS Region.

-PreSignedUrl <String>
A URL that contains a Signature Version 4 signed request for the CreateDBCluster action to be called in the source AWS Region where the DB cluster is replicated from. You only need to specify PreSignedUrl when you are performing cross-region replication from an encrypted DB cluster.The pre-signed URL must be a valid request for the CreateDBCluster API action that can be executed in the source AWS Region that contains the encrypted DB cluster to be copied.The pre-signed URL request must contain the following parameter values:
  • KmsKeyId - The AWS KMS key identifier for the key to use to encrypt the copy of the DB cluster in the destination AWS Region. This should refer to the same KMS key for both the CreateDBCluster action that is called in the destination AWS Region, and the action contained in the pre-signed URL.
  • DestinationRegion - The name of the AWS Region that Aurora Read Replica will be created in.
  • ReplicationSourceIdentifier - The DB cluster identifier for the encrypted DB cluster to be copied. This identifier must be in the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) format for the source AWS Region. For example, if you are copying an encrypted DB cluster from the us-west-2 AWS Region, then your ReplicationSourceIdentifier would look like Example: arn:aws:rds:us-west-2:123456789012:cluster:aurora-cluster1.

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the DBClusterIdentifier parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a DBCluster object. The service call response (type Amazon.RDS.Model.CreateDBClusterResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
