create-db-cluster-snapshot

Description

Creates a snapshot of a cluster.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-db-cluster-snapshot
--db-cluster-snapshot-identifier <value>
--db-cluster-identifier <value>
[--tags <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--db-cluster-snapshot-identifier (string)

The identifier of the cluster snapshot. This parameter is stored as a lowercase string.

Constraints:

  • Must contain from 1 to 63 letters, numbers, or hyphens.
  • The first character must be a letter.
  • Cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

Example: my-cluster-snapshot1

--db-cluster-identifier (string)

The identifier of the cluster to create a snapshot for. This parameter is not case sensitive.

Constraints:

  • Must match the identifier of an existing DBCluster .

Example: my-cluster

--tags (list)

The tags to be assigned to the cluster snapshot.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create a manual Amazon DocumentDB cluster snapshot

The following create-db-cluster-snapshot example creates an Amazon DB cluster snapshot named sample-cluster-snapshot.

aws docdb create-db-cluster-snapshot \
   --db-cluster-identifier sample-cluster \
   --db-cluster-snapshot-identifier sample-cluster-snapshot

Output:
