Deletes an existing DB proxy.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--db-proxy-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--db-proxy-name (string)

The name of the DB proxy to delete.

--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.


DBProxy -> (structure)

The data structure representing the details of the DB proxy that you delete.

DBProxyName -> (string)

The identifier for the proxy. This name must be unique for all proxies owned by your AWS account in the specified AWS Region.

DBProxyArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the proxy.

Status -> (string)

The current status of this proxy. A status of available means the proxy is ready to handle requests. Other values indicate that you must wait for the proxy to be ready, or take some action to resolve an issue.

EngineFamily -> (string)

The engine family applies to MySQL and PostgreSQL for both RDS and Aurora.

VpcId -> (string)

Provides the VPC ID of the DB proxy.

VpcSecurityGroupIds -> (list)

Provides a list of VPC security groups that the proxy belongs to.


VpcSubnetIds -> (list)

The EC2 subnet IDs for the proxy.


Auth -> (list)

One or more data structures specifying the authorization mechanism to connect to the associated RDS DB instance or Aurora DB cluster.


Returns the details of authentication used by a proxy to log in as a specific database user.

Description -> (string)

A user-specified description about the authentication used by a proxy to log in as a specific database user.

UserName -> (string)

The name of the database user to which the proxy connects.

AuthScheme -> (string)

The type of authentication that the proxy uses for connections from the proxy to the underlying database.

SecretArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) representing the secret that the proxy uses to authenticate to the RDS DB instance or Aurora DB cluster. These secrets are stored within Amazon Secrets Manager.

IAMAuth -> (string)

Whether to require or disallow AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) authentication for connections to the proxy.

RoleArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the IAM role that the proxy uses to access Amazon Secrets Manager.

Endpoint -> (string)

The endpoint that you can use to connect to the DB proxy. You include the endpoint value in the connection string for a database client application.

RequireTLS -> (boolean)

Indicates whether Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption is required for connections to the proxy.

IdleClientTimeout -> (integer)

The number of seconds a connection to the proxy can have no activity before the proxy drops the client connection. The proxy keeps the underlying database connection open and puts it back into the connection pool for reuse by later connection requests.

Default: 1800 (30 minutes)

Constraints: 1 to 28,800

DebugLogging -> (boolean)

Whether the proxy includes detailed information about SQL statements in its logs. This information helps you to debug issues involving SQL behavior or the performance and scalability of the proxy connections. The debug information includes the text of SQL statements that you submit through the proxy. Thus, only enable this setting when needed for debugging, and only when you have security measures in place to safeguard any sensitive information that appears in the logs.

CreatedDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the proxy was first created.

UpdatedDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the proxy was last updated.
