Step 8. Specify Cluster and Database Identifiers

In this article

    [This step is available if you have chosen to restore Amazon Aurora DB clusters to a new location or with different settings.]

    At the Identifier step of the wizard, you can change cluster identifiers, instance identifiers for primary DB instances and configure advanced settings such as deletion protection, the backup retention period and so on:

    1. To change a cluster identifier, select the necessary cluster in the Databases list and click Identifier. In the Identifier window, specify the cluster identifier in the Cluster identifier field. For provisioned and Aurora Serverless v2 DB clusters, you can also specify the identifier for the primary DB instance in the Instance identifier field. Then click OK.

    Note

    Consider the following limitations for instance and cluster identifiers:

    • Identifiers must be unique for each AWS Region within one AWS Account.
    • The first character of identifiers must be a letter.
    • Identifiers can contain only lowercase Latin letters or hyphens, but cannot contain two consecutive hyphens. You cannot use a hyphen as the last character of the identifier.
    • The maximum length of identifiers is 63 characters.

    For more information on limitations for identifiers, see AWS Documentation.

    1. To configure advanced settings, select the necessary cluster in the Databases list and click Advanced. In the Advanced Settings window, select a setting that you want to change, and click Edit. Then specify a value and click OK.

    For more information on the settings, see AWS documentation.
