Comparing DB parameter groups - Amazon Relational Database Service

Comparing DB parameter groups

You can use the AWS Management Console to view the differences between two parameter groups for the same DB engine and version.

To compare two parameter groups

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon RDS console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/rds/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Parameter groups.

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

  4. For Parameter group actions, choose Compare.

    Note

    The specified parameter groups must be for the same DB engine and version. If they aren't equivalent, you can't choose Compare. For example, you can't compare a MySQL 5.7 and a MySQL 8.0 parameter group because the DB engine version is different. In addition, they both must be DB parameter groups, or they both must be DB cluster parameter groups. For example, you can't compare an Aurora MySQL 8.0 DB parameter group and an Aurora MySQL 8.0 DB cluster parameter group, even though the DB engine and version are the same.
