RestoreDBClusterFromSnapshot

Creates a new DB cluster from a DB snapshot or DB cluster snapshot.

If a DB snapshot is specified, the target DB cluster is created from the source DB snapshot with a default configuration and default security group.

If a DB cluster snapshot is specified, the target DB cluster is created from the source DB cluster restore point with the same configuration as the original source DB cluster, except that the new DB cluster is created with the default security group.

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

DBClusterIdentifier

The name of the DB cluster to create from the DB snapshot or DB cluster snapshot. This parameter isn't case sensitive.

Constraints:

  • Must contain from 1 to 63 letters, numbers, or hyphens.

  • The first character must be a letter.

  • Cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

Example: my-snapshot-id

Type: String

Required: Yes

Engine

The database engine to use for the new DB cluster.

Default: The same as source.

Constraint: Must be compatible with the engine of the source.

Type: String

Required: Yes

SnapshotIdentifier

The identifier for the DB snapshot or DB cluster snapshot to restore from.

You can use either the name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) to specify a DB cluster snapshot. However, you can use only the ARN to specify a DB snapshot.

Constraints:

  • Must match the identifier of an existing snapshot.

Type: String

Required: Yes

AvailabilityZones.AvailabilityZone.N

Provides the list of Amazon EC2 Availability Zones that instances in the restored DB cluster can be created in.

Type: Array of strings

Required: No

DBSubnetGroupName

The name of the DB subnet group to use for the new DB cluster.

Constraints: If provided, must match the name of an existing DBSubnetGroup.

Example: mySubnetgroup

Type: String

Required: No

DeletionProtection

Specifies whether this cluster can be deleted. If DeletionProtection is enabled, the cluster cannot be deleted unless it is modified and DeletionProtection is disabled. DeletionProtection protects clusters from being accidentally deleted.

Type: Boolean

Required: No

EnableCloudwatchLogsExports.member.N

A list of log types that must be enabled for exporting to Amazon CloudWatch Logs.

Type: Array of strings

Required: No

EngineVersion

The version of the database engine to use for the new DB cluster.

Type: String

Required: No

KmsKeyId

The AWS KMS key identifier to use when restoring an encrypted DB cluster from a DB snapshot or DB cluster snapshot.

The AWS KMS key identifier is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the AWS KMS encryption key. If you are restoring a DB cluster with the same AWS account that owns the AWS KMS encryption key used to encrypt the new DB cluster, then you can use the AWS KMS key alias instead of the ARN for the AWS KMS encryption key.

If you do not specify a value for the KmsKeyId parameter, then the following occurs:

  • If the DB snapshot or DB cluster snapshot in SnapshotIdentifier is encrypted, then the restored DB cluster is encrypted using the AWS KMS key that was used to encrypt the DB snapshot or the DB cluster snapshot.

  • If the DB snapshot or the DB cluster snapshot in SnapshotIdentifier is not encrypted, then the restored DB cluster is not encrypted.

Type: String

Required: No

Port

The port number on which the new DB cluster accepts connections.

Constraints: Must be a value from 1150 to 65535.

Default: The same port as the original DB cluster.

Type: Integer

Required: No

Tags.Tag.N

The tags to be assigned to the restored DB cluster.

Type: Array of Tag objects

Required: No

VpcSecurityGroupIds.VpcSecurityGroupId.N

A list of virtual private cloud (VPC) security groups that the new DB cluster will belong to.

Type: Array of strings

Required: No

Response Elements

The following element is returned by the service.

DBCluster

Detailed information about a DB cluster.

Type: DBCluster object

Errors

For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.

DBClusterAlreadyExistsFault

You already have a DB cluster with the given identifier.

HTTP Status Code: 400

DBClusterQuotaExceededFault

The DB cluster can't be created because you have reached the maximum allowed quota of DB clusters.

HTTP Status Code: 403

DBClusterSnapshotNotFoundFault

DBClusterSnapshotIdentifier doesn't refer to an existing DB cluster snapshot.

HTTP Status Code: 404

DBSnapshotNotFound

DBSnapshotIdentifier doesn't refer to an existing DB snapshot.

HTTP Status Code: 404

DBSubnetGroupNotFoundFault

DBSubnetGroupName doesn't refer to an existing DB subnet group.

HTTP Status Code: 404

DBSubnetGroupNotFoundFault

DBSubnetGroupName doesn't refer to an existing DB subnet group.

HTTP Status Code: 404

InsufficientDBClusterCapacityFault

The DB cluster doesn't have enough capacity for the current operation.

HTTP Status Code: 403

InsufficientStorageClusterCapacity

There is not enough storage available for the current action. You might be able to resolve this error by updating your subnet group to use different Availability Zones that have more storage available.

HTTP Status Code: 400

InvalidDBClusterSnapshotStateFault

The provided value isn't a valid DB cluster snapshot state.

HTTP Status Code: 400

InvalidDBSnapshotState

The state of the DB snapshot doesn't allow deletion.

HTTP Status Code: 400

InvalidRestoreFault

You cannot restore from a virtual private cloud (VPC) backup to a non-VPC DB instance.

HTTP Status Code: 400

InvalidSubnet

The requested subnet is not valid, or multiple subnets were requested that are not all in a common virtual private cloud (VPC).

HTTP Status Code: 400

InvalidVPCNetworkStateFault

The DB subnet group doesn't cover all Availability Zones after it is created because of changes that were made.

HTTP Status Code: 400

KMSKeyNotAccessibleFault

An error occurred when accessing an AWS KMS key.

HTTP Status Code: 400

StorageQuotaExceeded

The request would cause you to exceed the allowed amount of storage available across all DB instances.

HTTP Status Code: 400

StorageQuotaExceeded

The request would cause you to exceed the allowed amount of storage available across all DB instances.

HTTP Status Code: 400
