Copies a snapshot of a DB cluster.

To copy a DB cluster snapshot from a shared manual DB cluster snapshot, SourceDBClusterSnapshotIdentifier must be the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the shared DB cluster snapshot.

You can copy an encrypted DB cluster snapshot from another AWS Region. In that case, the AWS Region where you call the CopyDBClusterSnapshot action is the destination AWS Region for the encrypted DB cluster snapshot to be copied to. To copy an encrypted DB cluster snapshot from another AWS Region, you must provide the following values:

To cancel the copy operation once it is in progress, delete the target DB cluster snapshot identified by TargetDBClusterSnapshotIdentifier while that DB cluster snapshot is in "copying" status.

For more information on copying encrypted DB cluster snapshots from one AWS Region to another, see Copying a DB Cluster Snapshot in the Same Account, Either in the Same Region or Across Regions in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

For more information on Amazon Aurora, see Aurora on Amazon RDS in the Amazon RDS User Guide.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CopyDBClusterSnapshotAsync.
