Options

--relational-database-name (string)

The name to use for your new database.

Constraints:

  • Must contain from 2 to 255 alphanumeric characters, or hyphens.
  • The first and last character must be a letter or number.

--availability-zone (string)

You can get a list of Availability Zones by using the get regions operation. Be sure to add the include relational database Availability Zones parameter to your request.

--relational-database-blueprint-id (string)

The blueprint ID for your new database. A blueprint describes the major engine version of a database.

You can get a list of database blueprints IDs by using the get relational database blueprints operation.

--relational-database-bundle-id (string)

The bundle ID for your new database. A bundle describes the performance specifications for your database.

You can get a list of database bundle IDs by using the get relational database bundles operation.

--master-database-name (string)

The name of the master database created when the Lightsail database resource is created.

Constraints:

  • Must contain from 1 to 64 alphanumeric characters.
  • Cannot be a word reserved by the specified database engine

--master-username (string)

The master user name for your new database.

Constraints:

  • Master user name is required.

Constraints: Must contain 8 to 41 characters.

--preferred-backup-window (string)

The daily time range during which automated backups are created for your new database if automated backups are enabled.

The default is a 30-minute window selected at random from an 8-hour block of time for each AWS Region. For more information about the preferred backup window time blocks for each region, see the Working With Backups guide in the Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) documentation.

Constraints:

  • Must be in the hh24:mi-hh24:mi format. Example: 16:00-16:30
  • Specified in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
  • Must not conflict with the preferred maintenance window.
  • Must be at least 30 minutes.

--preferred-maintenance-window (string)

The weekly time range during which system maintenance can occur on your new database.

The default is a 30-minute window selected at random from an 8-hour block of time for each AWS Region, occurring on a random day of the week.

Constraints:

  • Must be in the ddd:hh24:mi-ddd:hh24:mi format.
  • Valid days: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun.
  • Must be at least 30 minutes.

  • Example: Tue:17:00-Tue:17:30

--publicly-accessible | --no-publicly-accessible (boolean)

Specifies the accessibility options for your new database. A value of true specifies a database that is available to resources outside of your Lightsail account. A value of false specifies a database that is available only to your Lightsail resources in the same region as your database.

--tags (list)

The tag keys and optional values to add to the resource during create.

Use the TagResource action to tag a resource after it's created.

(structure)

Describes a tag key and optional value assigned to an Amazon Lightsail resource.

For more information about tags in Lightsail, see the Lightsail Dev Guide .

key -> (string)

The key of the tag.

Constraints: Tag keys accept a maximum of 128 letters, numbers, spaces in UTF-8, or the following characters: + - = . _ : / @

value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

Constraints: Tag values accept a maximum of 256 letters, numbers, spaces in UTF-8, or the following characters: + - = . _ : / @

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 managed database

The following create-relational-database example creates a managed database in the specified AWS Region and Availability Zone, using the MySQL 5.6 database engine (mysql_5_6), and the $15 USD standard database bundle (micro_1_0). The managed database is pre-populated a master user name, and is not publicly accessible.

aws lightsail create-relational-database \
    --relational-database-name Database-1 \
    --availability-zone us-west-2a \
    --relational-database-blueprint-id mysql_5_6 \
    --relational-database-bundle-id micro_1_0 \
    --master-database-name dbmaster \
    --master-username user \
    --no-publicly-accessible

Output:

{
    "operations": [
        {
            "id": "b52bedee-73ed-4798-8d2a-9c12df89adcd",

            "resourceType": "RelationalDatabase",
