Description

Starts an export of a snapshot to Amazon S3. The provided IAM role must have access to the S3 bucket.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  start-export-task
--export-task-identifier <value>
--source-arn <value>
--s3-bucket-name <value>
--iam-role-arn <value>
--kms-key-id <value>
[--s3-prefix <value>]
[--export-only <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--export-task-identifier (string)

A unique identifier for the snapshot export task. This ID isn't an identifier for the Amazon S3 bucket where the snapshot is to be exported to.

--source-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the snapshot to export to Amazon S3.

--s3-bucket-name (string)

The name of the Amazon S3 bucket to export the snapshot to.

--iam-role-arn (string)

The name of the IAM role to use for writing to the Amazon S3 bucket when exporting a snapshot.

--kms-key-id (string)

The ID of the AWS KMS key to use to encrypt the snapshot exported to Amazon S3. The KMS key ID is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN), the KMS key identifier, or the KMS key alias for the KMS encryption key. The caller of this operation must be authorized to execute the following operations. These can be set in the KMS key policy:

  • GrantOperation.Encrypt
  • GrantOperation.Decrypt
  • GrantOperation.GenerateDataKey
  • GrantOperation.GenerateDataKeyWithoutPlaintext
  • GrantOperation.ReEncryptFrom
  • GrantOperation.ReEncryptTo
  • GrantOperation.CreateGrant
  • GrantOperation.DescribeKey
  • GrantOperation.RetireGrant

--s3-prefix (string)

The Amazon S3 bucket prefix to use as the file name and path of the exported snapshot.

--export-only (list)

The data to be exported from the snapshot. If this parameter is not provided, all the snapshot data is exported. Valid values are the following:

  • database - Export all the data from a specified database.
  • database.table table-name - Export a table of the snapshot. This format is valid only for RDS for MySQL, RDS for MariaDB, and Aurora MySQL.
  • database.schema schema-name - Export a database schema of the snapshot. This format is valid only for RDS for PostgreSQL and Aurora PostgreSQL.
  • database.schema.table table-name - Export a table of the database schema. This format is valid only for RDS for PostgreSQL and Aurora PostgreSQL.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "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.

Examples

To export a snapshot to Amazon S3

The following start-export-task example exports a DB snapshot named db5-snapshot-test to the Amazon S3 bucket named mybucket.

aws rds start-export-task \
    --export-task-identifier my-s3-export \
    --source-arn arn:aws:rds:us-west-2:123456789012:snapshot:db5-snapshot-test \
    --s3-bucket-name mybucket \
    --iam-role-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/service-role/ExportRole \
    --kms-key-id arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:123456789012:key/abcd0000-7fca-4128-82f2-aabbccddeeff

Output:

{
    "ExportTaskIdentifier": "my-s3-export",
    "SourceArn": "arn:aws:rds:us-west-2:123456789012:snapshot:db5-snapshot-test",
    "SnapshotTime": "2020-03-27T20:48:42.023Z",
    "S3Bucket": "mybucket",
    "IamRoleArn": "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/service-role/ExportRole",
    "KmsKeyId": "arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:123456789012:key/abcd0000-7fca-4128-82f2-aabbccddeeff",
    "Status": "STARTING",
    "PercentProgress": 0,
    "TotalExtractedDataInGB": 0
}
