modify-db-snapshot-attribute

Description

Adds an attribute and values to, or removes an attribute and values from, a manual DB snapshot.

To share a manual DB snapshot with other Amazon Web Services accounts, specify restore as the AttributeName and use the ValuesToAdd parameter to add a list of IDs of the Amazon Web Services accounts that are authorized to restore the manual DB snapshot. Uses the value all to make the manual DB snapshot public, which means it can be copied or restored by all Amazon Web Services accounts.

Note

Don't add the all value for any manual DB snapshots that contain private information that you don't want available to all Amazon Web Services accounts.

If the manual DB snapshot is encrypted, it can be shared, but only by specifying a list of authorized Amazon Web Services account IDs for the ValuesToAdd parameter. You can't use all as a value for that parameter in this case.

To view which Amazon Web Services accounts have access to copy or restore a manual DB snapshot, or whether a manual DB snapshot public or private, use the DescribeDBSnapshotAttributes API action. The accounts are returned as values for the restore attribute.

Options

--db-snapshot-identifier (string)

The identifier for the DB snapshot to modify the attributes for.

--attribute-name (string)

The name of the DB snapshot attribute to modify.

To manage authorization for other Amazon Web Services accounts to copy or restore a manual DB snapshot, set this value to restore .

--values-to-add (list)

A list of DB snapshot attributes to add to the attribute specified by AttributeName .

To authorize other Amazon Web Services accounts to copy or restore a manual snapshot, set this list to include one or more Amazon Web Services account IDs, or all to make the manual DB snapshot restorable by any Amazon Web Services account. Do not add the all value for any manual DB snapshots that contain private information that you don't want available to all Amazon Web Services accounts.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--values-to-remove (list)

A list of DB snapshot attributes to remove from the attribute specified by AttributeName .

To remove authorization for other Amazon Web Services accounts to copy or restore a manual snapshot, set this list to include one or more Amazon Web Services account identifiers, or all to remove authorization for any Amazon Web Services account to copy or restore the DB snapshot. If you specify all , an Amazon Web Services account whose account ID is explicitly added to the restore attribute can still copy or restore the manual DB snapshot.

--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

Example 1: To enable two AWS accounts to restore a DB snapshot

The following modify-db-snapshot-attribute example grants permission to two AWS accounts, with the identifiers 111122223333 and 444455556666, to restore the DB snapshot named mydbsnapshot.

aws rds modify-db-snapshot-attribute \
    --db-snapshot-identifier mydbsnapshot \
    --attribute-name restore \
    --values-to-add {"111122223333","444455556666"}

Output:

{
    "DBSnapshotAttributesResult": {
        "DBSnapshotIdentifier": "mydbsnapshot",
        "DBSnapshotAttributes": [
            {
                "AttributeName": "restore",
                "AttributeValues": [
                    "111122223333",
                    "444455556666"
                ]
            }
        ]
    }
}

Example 2: To prevent an AWS account from restoring a DB snapshot

The following modify-db-snapshot-attribute example removes permission from a particular AWS account to restore the DB snapshot named mydbsnapshot. When specifying a single account, the account identifier can't be surrounded by quotations marks or braces.

aws rds modify-db-snapshot-attribute \
    --db-snapshot-identifier mydbsnapshot \
    --attribute-name restore \
    --values-to-remove 444455556666

Output:

{
    "DBSnapshotAttributesResult": {
        "DBSnapshotIdentifier": "mydbsnapshot",
        "DBSnapshotAttributes": [
            {
                "AttributeName": "restore",
                "AttributeValues": [
                    "111122223333"
                ]
            }
        ]
    }
