Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To generate an IAM authentication token

The following generate-db-auth-token example generates IAM authentication token to connect to a database.

aws rds generate-db-auth-token \
    --hostname mydb.123456789012.us-east-1.rds.amazonaws.com \
    --port 3306 \
    --region us-east-1 \
    --username db_user

Output:

mydb.123456789012.us-east-1.rds.amazonaws.com:3306/?Action=connect&DBUser=db_user&X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256&X-Amz-Credential=AKIAIEXAMPLE%2Fus-east-1%2Frds-db%2Faws4_request&X-Amz-Date=20210123T011543Z&X-Amz-Expires=900&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=host&X-Amz-Signature=88987EXAMPLE1EXAMPLE2EXAMPLE3EXAMPLE4EXAMPLE5EXAMPLE6
