Adding an Instance for Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL
To manage a database, you can either use an existing instance or add a new instance.
Before You Begin
Configure the permissions to access AWS resources. Download the amazon_rds_dumpbased_backup_restore_permissions.json file and use it on the AWS command line to apply all the permissions.
- From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Databases.
The Instances page appears.
- Click Add instance, and then select Cloud DB.
The Add Cloud DB instance dialog box appears.
- From the Select vendor list, select a vendor where you want to create an instance.
- From the Database engine list, select PostgreSQL.
- From the Cloud account list, select a hypervisor.
If you do not have a hypervisor to select, you can add a hypervisor. For more information, see Adding a Hypervisor.
- From the Backup plan list, select a server plan.
- From the Instance name list, select an instance.
- In the Database user box, type the user name to access the RDS for PostgreSQL application.
- In the Password box, type the password to access the RDS for PostgreSQL application.
- In the Maintenance DB box, type the name of the system database that is used as the maintenance database.
- Click Add.
- The new instance contains a dump-based backup set and a default subclient.
- When you add an instance, a default database group is automatically created. The default database group includes all the data in the PostgreSQL database. You cannot delete the default database group.
