Copying Amazon DocumentDB Cluster Parameter Groups - Amazon DocumentDB

Copying Amazon DocumentDB Cluster Parameter Groups

You can make a copy of a cluster parameter group in Amazon DocumentDB using the AWS Management Console or the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).

The following procedure guides you through making a new cluster parameter group by making a copy of an existing cluster parameter group.

To copy a cluster parameter group

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console, and open the Amazon DocumentDB console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/docdb.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Parameter groups.

  3. In the Cluster parameter groups pane, choose the name of the cluster parameter group that you want to copy.

  4. Choose Actions, and then choose Copy to copy that parameter group.

  5. Under Copy options, enter a name and description for the new cluster parameter group. Then choose Copy to save your changes.

To make a copy of a cluster parameter group, use the copy-db-cluster-parameter-group operation with the following parameters.

  • --source-db-cluster-parameter-group-identifier — Required. The name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster parameter group that you want to make a copy of.

    If the source and target cluster parameter groups are in the same AWS Region, the identifier can be either a name or an ARN.

    If the source and target cluster parameter groups are in different AWS Regions, the identifier must be an ARN.

  • --target-db-cluster-parameter-group-identifier — Required. The name or ARN of the cluster parameter group copy.

    Constraints:

    • Cannot be null, empty, or blank.

    • Must contain 1–255 letters, numbers, or hyphens.

    • First character must be a letter.

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

  • --target-db-cluster-parameter-group-description — Required. A user-supplied description for the cluster parameter group copy.

The following code makes a copy of sample-parameter-group, naming the copy sample-parameter-group-copy.

For Linux, macOS, or Unix:

aws docdb copy-db-cluster-parameter-group \ --source-db-cluster-parameter-group-identifier sample-parameter-group \ --target-db-cluster-parameter-group-identifier sample-parameter-group-copy \ --target-db-cluster-parameter-group-description "Copy of sample-parameter-group"

For Windows:

aws docdb copy-db-cluster-parameter-group ^ --source-db-cluster-parameter-group-identifier sample-parameter-group ^ --target-db-cluster-parameter-group-identifier sample-parameter-group-copy ^ --target-db-cluster-parameter-group-description "Copy of sample-parameter-group"

Output from this operation looks something like the following (JSON format).

{ "DBClusterParameterGroup": { "DBClusterParameterGroupArn": "arn:aws:rds:us-east-1:123456789012:cluster-pg:sample-parameter-group-copy", "DBClusterParameterGroupName": "sample-parameter-group-copy", "DBParameterGroupFamily": "docdb3.6", "Description": "Copy of sample-parameter-group" } }
