RestoreDBClusterToPointInTime

Restores a DB cluster to an arbitrary point in time. Users can restore to any point in time before LatestRestorableTime for up to BackupRetentionPeriod days. The target DB cluster is created from the source DB cluster with the same configuration as the original DB cluster, except that the new DB cluster is created with the default DB security group.

Request Parameters

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

DBClusterIdentifier

The name of the new DB cluster to be created.

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.

Type: String

Required: Yes

SourceDBClusterIdentifier

The identifier of the source DB cluster from which to restore.

Constraints:

  • Must match the identifier of an existing DBCluster.

Type: String

Required: Yes

DBSubnetGroupName

The DB subnet group name 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

KmsKeyId

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

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.

You can restore to a new DB cluster and encrypt the new DB cluster with an AWS KMS key that is different from the AWS KMS key used to encrypt the source DB cluster. The new DB cluster is encrypted with the AWS KMS key identified by the KmsKeyId parameter.

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

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

  • If the DB cluster is not encrypted, then the restored DB cluster is not encrypted.

If DBClusterIdentifier refers to a DB cluster that is not encrypted, then the restore request is rejected.

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 default port for the engine.

Type: Integer

Required: No

RestoreToTime

The date and time to restore the DB cluster to.

Valid values: A time in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) format.

Constraints:

  • Must be before the latest restorable time for the DB instance.

  • Must be specified if the UseLatestRestorableTime parameter is not provided.

  • Cannot be specified if the UseLatestRestorableTime parameter is true.

  • Cannot be specified if the RestoreType parameter is copy-on-write.

Example: 2015-03-07T23:45:00Z

Type: Timestamp

Required: No

Tags.Tag.N

The tags to be assigned to the restored DB cluster.

Type: Array of Tag objects

Required: No

UseLatestRestorableTime

A value that is set to true to restore the DB cluster to the latest restorable backup time, and false otherwise.

Default: false

Constraints: Cannot be specified if the RestoreToTime parameter is provided.

Type: Boolean

Required: No

VpcSecurityGroupIds.VpcSecurityGroupId.N

A list of VPC security groups that the new DB cluster belongs 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

DBClusterNotFoundFault

DBClusterIdentifier doesn't refer to an existing DB cluster.

HTTP Status Code: 404

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

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

InvalidDBClusterStateFault

The DB cluster isn't in a valid 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
