Working with AWS DMS endpoints - AWS Database Migration Service

Working with AWS DMS endpoints

An endpoint provides connection, data store type, and location information about your data store. AWS Database Migration Service uses this information to connect to a data store and migrate data from a source endpoint to a target endpoint. You can specify additional connection attributes for an endpoint by using extra connection attributes. These attributes can control logging, file size, and other parameters; for more information about extra connection attributes, see the documentation section for your data store.

Following, you can find out more details about endpoints.
