API for Route53 Recovery Cluster

ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_R5V

The "TLA" is a Three Letter Abbreviation that appears in ABAP class names, data dictionary objects and other ABAP objects throughout the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP. The TLA for Route53 Recovery Cluster is R5V. This TLA helps squeeze ABAP objects into the 30-character length limit of the ABAP data dictionary.


To install the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP, import the Core transport, along with the transport for the Route53 Recovery Cluster module and other API modules you are interested in. A few modules are included in the Core transport itself. For more information, see the Developer Guide guide.

About The Service

Welcome to the Routing Control (Recovery Cluster) API Reference Guide for Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller.

With Route 53 ARC, you can use routing control with extreme reliability to recover applications by rerouting traffic across Availability Zones or Amazon Web Services Regions. Routing controls are simple on/off switches hosted on a highly available cluster in Route 53 ARC. A cluster provides a set of five redundant Regional endpoints against which you can run API calls to get or update the state of routing controls. To implement failover, you set one routing control to ON and another one to OFF, to reroute traffic from one Availability Zone or Amazon Web Services Region to another.

Be aware that you must specify a Regional endpoint for a cluster when you work with API cluster operations to get or update routing control states in Route 53 ARC. In addition, you must specify the US West (Oregon) Region for Route 53 ARC API calls. For example, use the parameter --region us-west-2 with AWS CLI commands. For more information, see Get and update routing control states using the API in the Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller Developer Guide.

This API guide includes information about the API operations for how to get and update routing control states in Route 53 ARC. To work with routing control in Route 53 ARC, you must first create the required components (clusters, control panels, and routing controls) using the recovery cluster configuration API.

For more information about working with routing control in Route 53 ARC, see the following:

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for Route53 Recovery Cluster, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_R5V_FACTORY=>create(). In this example we will assume you have configured an SDK profile in transaction /AWS1/IMG called ZFINANCE.

DATA(go_session)   = /aws1/cl_rt_session_aws=>create( 'ZFINANCE' ).
DATA(go_r5v)       = /aws1/cl_r5v_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_r5v is an instance of /AWS1/IF_R5V, and all of the operations in the Route53 Recovery Cluster service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_R5V.

API Operations

For an overview of ABAP method calls corresponding to API operations in Route53 Recovery Cluster, see the Operation List.

Factory Method

/AWS1/CL_R5V_FACTORY=>create( )

Creates an object of type /AWS1/IF_R5V.


Optional arguments:







/AWS1/IF_R5V represents the ABAP client for the Route53 Recovery Cluster service, representing each operation as a method call. For more information see the API Page page.

Configuring Programmatically

DATA(lo_config) = DATA(go_r5v)->get_config( ).

lo_config is a variable of type /AWS1/CL_R5V_CONFIG. See the documentation for /AWS1/CL_R5V_CONFIG for details on the settings that can be configured.


Paginators for Route53 Recovery Cluster can be created via get_paginator() which returns a paginator object of type /AWS1/IF_R5V_PAGINATOR. The operation method that is being paginated is called using the paginator object, which accepts any necessary parameters to provide to the underlying API operation. This returns an iterator object which can be used to iterate over paginated results using has_next() and get_next() methods.

Details about the paginator methods available for service Route53 Recovery Cluster can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_R5V_PAGINATOR.
