Enabling or disabling zonal autoshift - Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller

Enabling or disabling zonal autoshift

The steps in this section explain how to enable or disable zonal autoshift on the Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller console. To work with zonal autoshift programmatically, see the Zonal Shift and Zonal Autoshift API Reference Guide.

When zonal autoshift is enabled, you authorize AWS to shift away application resource traffic from an Availability Zone during events, on your behalf, to help reduce your time to recovery.

To enable or disable zonal autoshift

  1. Open the Route 53 ARC console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53recovery/home#/dashboard.

  2. Under Multi-AZ, choose Zonal autoshift.

  3. Under Resource zonal autoshift configurations, choose a resource.

  4. In the Actions menu, choose Enable zonal autoshift or Disable zonal autoshift, then follow the steps to complete the update.

If the resource doesn't have a practice run configuration, Enable zonal autoshift is not available. To configure a practice run configuration and enable zonal autoshift, choose Configure zonal autoshift.
