authorize-db-security-group-ingress

Description

Enables ingress to a DBSecurityGroup using one of two forms of authorization. First, EC2 or VPC security groups can be added to the DBSecurityGroup if the application using the database is running on EC2 or VPC instances. Second, IP ranges are available if the application accessing your database is running on the Internet. Required parameters for this API are one of CIDR range, EC2SecurityGroupId for VPC, or (EC2SecurityGroupOwnerId and either EC2SecurityGroupName or EC2SecurityGroupId for non-VPC).

Note

You can't authorize ingress from an EC2 security group in one AWS Region to an Amazon RDS DB instance in another. You can't authorize ingress from a VPC security group in one VPC to an Amazon RDS DB instance in another.

For an overview of CIDR ranges, go to the Wikipedia Tutorial .

Synopsis

  authorize-db-security-group-ingress
--db-security-group-name <value>
[--cidrip <value>]
[--ec2-security-group-name <value>]
[--ec2-security-group-id <value>]
[--ec2-security-group-owner-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--db-security-group-name (string)

The name of the DB security group to add authorization to.

--cidrip (string)

The IP range to authorize.

--ec2-security-group-name (string)

Name of the EC2 security group to authorize. For VPC DB security groups, EC2SecurityGroupId must be provided. Otherwise, EC2SecurityGroupOwnerId and either EC2SecurityGroupName or EC2SecurityGroupId must be provided.

--ec2-security-group-id (string)

Id of the EC2 security group to authorize. For VPC DB security groups, EC2SecurityGroupId must be provided. Otherwise, EC2SecurityGroupOwnerId and either EC2SecurityGroupName or EC2SecurityGroupId must be provided.

--ec2-security-group-owner-id (string)

AWS account number of the owner of the EC2 security group specified in the EC2SecurityGroupName parameter. The AWS access key ID isn't an acceptable value. For VPC DB security groups, EC2SecurityGroupId must be provided. Otherwise, EC2SecurityGroupOwnerId and either EC2SecurityGroupName or EC2SecurityGroupId must be provided.

--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 associate an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role with a DB instance

The following authorize-db-security-group-ingress example configures the default security group with an ingress rule for the CIDR IP range 192.0.2.0/24.

aws rds authorize-db-security-group-ingress \
    --db-security-group-name default \
    --cidrip 192.0.2.0/24

Output:

{
    "DBSecurityGroup": {
        "OwnerId": "123456789012",
        "DBSecurityGroupName": "default",
        "DBSecurityGroupDescription": "default",
        "EC2SecurityGroups": [],
        "IPRanges": [
            {
                "Status": "authorizing",
                "CIDRIP": "192.0.2.0/24"
            }
        ],
        "DBSecurityGroupArn": "arn:aws:rds:us-east-1:111122223333:secgrp:default"
    }
}
