CreateResiliencyPolicy - AWS Resilience Hub


Creates a resiliency policy for an application.


AWS Resilience Hub allows you to provide a value of zero for rtoInSecs and rpoInSecs of your resiliency policy. But, while assessing your application, the lowest possible assessment result is near zero. Hence, if you provide value zero for rtoInSecs and rpoInSecs, the estimated workload RTO and estimated workload RPO result will be near zero and the Compliance status for your application will be set to Policy breached.

Type: String

Valid Values: MissionCritical | Critical | Important | CoreServices | NonCritical | NotApplicable

Required: Yes

Response Syntax

HTTP/1.1 200 Content-type: application/json { "policy": { "creationTime": number, "dataLocationConstraint": "string", "estimatedCostTier": "string", "policy": { "string" : { "rpoInSecs": number, "rtoInSecs": number } }, "policyArn": "string", "policyDescription": "string", "policyName": "string", "tags": { "string" : "string" }, "tier": "string" } }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


The type of resiliency policy that was created, including the recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO) in seconds.

Type: ResiliencyPolicy object


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


You don't have permissions to perform the requested operation. The user or role that is making the request must have at least one IAM permissions policy attached that grants the required permissions.

HTTP Status Code: 403


This exception occurs when a conflict with a previous successful write is detected. This generally occurs when the previous write did not have time to propagate to the host serving the current request. A retry (with appropriate backoff logic) is the recommended response to this exception.

HTTP Status Code: 409


This exception occurs when there is an internal failure in the AWS Resilience Hub service.

HTTP Status Code: 500


This exception occurs when you have exceeded your service quota. To perform the requested action, remove some of the relevant resources, or use Service Quotas to request a service quota increase.

HTTP Status Code: 402


This exception occurs when you have exceeded the limit on the number of requests per second.

HTTP Status Code: 429


This exception occurs when a request is not valid.

HTTP Status Code: 400
