create-custom-db-engine-version

Description

Creates a custom DB engine version (CEV). A CEV is a binary volume snapshot of a database engine and specific AMI. The only supported engine is Oracle Database 19c Enterprise Edition with the January 2021 or later RU/RUR.

Amazon RDS, which is a fully managed service, supplies the Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and database software. The Amazon RDS database software is preinstalled, so you need only select a DB engine and version, and create your database. With Amazon RDS Custom for Oracle, you upload your database installation files in Amazon S3.

When you create a custom engine version, you specify the files in a JSON document called a CEV manifest. This document describes installation .zip files stored in Amazon S3. RDS Custom creates your CEV from the installation files that you provided. This service model is called Bring Your Own Media (BYOM).

Creation takes approximately two hours. If creation fails, RDS Custom issues RDS-EVENT-0196 with the message Creation failed for custom engine version , and includes details about the failure. For example, the event prints missing files.

After you create the CEV, it is available for use. You can create multiple CEVs, and create multiple RDS Custom instances from any CEV. You can also change the status of a CEV to make it available or inactive.

Note

The MediaImport service that imports files from Amazon S3 to create CEVs isn't integrated with Amazon Web Services CloudTrail. If you turn on data logging for Amazon RDS in CloudTrail, calls to the CreateCustomDbEngineVersion event aren't logged. However, you might see calls from the API gateway that accesses your Amazon S3 bucket. These calls originate from the MediaImport service for the CreateCustomDbEngineVersion event.

For more information, see Creating a CEV in the Amazon RDS User Guide .

Options

--engine (string)

The database engine to use for your custom engine version (CEV). The only supported value is custom-oracle-ee .

--engine-version (string)

The name of your CEV. The name format is 19.*customized_string* `` . For example, a valid name is ``19.my_cev1 . This setting is required for RDS Custom for Oracle, but optional for Amazon RDS. The combination of Engine and EngineVersion is unique per customer per Region.

--database-installation-files-s3-bucket-name (string)

The name of an Amazon S3 bucket that contains database installation files for your CEV. For example, a valid bucket name is my-custom-installation-files .

--database-installation-files-s3-prefix (string)

The Amazon S3 directory that contains the database installation files for your CEV. For example, a valid bucket name is 123456789012/cev1 . If this setting isn't specified, no prefix is assumed.

--kms-key-id (string)

The Amazon Web Services KMS key identifier for an encrypted CEV. A symmetric KMS key is required for RDS Custom, but optional for Amazon RDS.

If you have an existing symmetric KMS key in your account, you can use it with RDS Custom. No further action is necessary. If you don't already have a symmetric KMS key in your account, follow the instructions in Creating symmetric KMS keys in the Amazon Web Services Key Management Service Developer Guide .

You can choose the same symmetric key when you create a CEV and a DB instance, or choose different keys.

--description (string)

An optional description of your CEV.

--manifest (string)

The CEV manifest, which is a JSON document that describes the installation .zip files stored in Amazon S3. Specify the name/value pairs in a file or a quoted string. RDS Custom applies the patches in the order in which they are listed.

The following JSON fields are valid:

MediaImportTemplateVersion

Version of the CEV manifest. The date is in the format YYYY-MM-DD .

databaseInstallationFileNames

Ordered list of installation files for the CEV.

opatchFileNames

Ordered list of OPatch installers used for the Oracle DB engine.

psuRuPatchFileNames

The PSU and RU patches for this CEV.

OtherPatchFileNames

The patches that are not in the list of PSU and RU patches. Amazon RDS applies these patches after applying the PSU and RU patches.

For more information, see Creating the CEV manifest in the Amazon RDS User Guide .

--tags (list)

A list of tags. For more information, see Tagging Amazon RDS Resources in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

(structure)

Metadata assigned to an Amazon RDS resource consisting of a key-value pair.

Key -> (string)

A key is the required name of the tag. The string value can be from 1 to 128 Unicode characters in length and can't be prefixed with aws: or rds: . The string can only contain only the set of Unicode letters, digits, white-space, '_', '.', ':', '/', '=', '+', '-', '@' (Java regex: "^([\p{L}\p{Z}\p{N}_.:/=+\-@]*)$").

Value -> (string)

A value is the optional value of the tag. The string value can be from 1 to 256 Unicode characters in length and can't be prefixed with aws: or rds: . The string can only contain only the set of Unicode letters, digits, white-space, '_', '.', ':', '/', '=', '+', '-', '@' (Java regex: "^([\p{L}\p{Z}\p{N}_.:/=+\-@]*)$").

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.
