-DBClusterIdentifier <String>
The DB cluster identifier. This parameter is stored as a lowercase string.Constraints:
  • Must contain from 1 to 63 letters, numbers, or hyphens.
  • The first character must be a letter.

-DBSubnetGroupName <String>
A DB subnet group to associate with this DB cluster.Constraints: Must match the name of an existing DBSubnetGroup. Must not be default.Example: mySubnetgroup
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-EngineVersion <String>
The version number of the database engine to use.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-KmsKeyId <String>
The AWS KMS key identifier for an encrypted DB cluster.The AWS KMS key identifier is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the AWS KMS encryption key. If you are creating a DB cluster using the same AWS account that owns the AWS KMS encryption key that is used to encrypt the new DB cluster, you can use the AWS KMS key alias instead of the ARN for the AWS KMS encryption key.If an encryption key is not specified in KmsKeyId:
  • If ReplicationSourceIdentifier identifies an encrypted source, then Amazon DocumentDB uses the encryption key that is used to encrypt the source. Otherwise, Amazon DocumentDB uses your default encryption key.
  • If the StorageEncrypted parameter is true and ReplicationSourceIdentifier is not specified, Amazon DocumentDB uses your default encryption key.
AWS KMS creates the default encryption key for your AWS account. Your AWS account has a different default encryption key for each AWS Region.If you create a replica of an encrypted DB cluster in another AWS Region, you must set KmsKeyId to a KMS key ID that is valid in the destination AWS Region. This key is used to encrypt the replica in that AWS Region.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-MasterUsername <String>

Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>

Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.DocDB.Model.CreateDBClusterResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases AWSProfileName, StoredCredentials
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases SecretAccessKey, SK
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases ST
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)
Aliases RegionToCall
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? True (ByPropertyName)

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the DBClusterIdentifier parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns an Amazon.DocDB.Model.DBCluster object. The service call response (type Amazon.DocDB.Model.CreateDBClusterResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
