--db-cluster-identifier <value>
--role-arn <value>
[--feature-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--db-cluster-identifier (string)

The name of the DB cluster to associate the IAM role with.

--role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role to associate with the Aurora DB cluster, for example arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/AuroraAccessRole .

--feature-name (string)

The name of the feature for the DB cluster that the IAM role is to be associated with. For information about supported feature names, see DBEngineVersion .

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

To associate an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role with a DB cluster

The following add-role-to-db-cluster example associates a role with a DB cluster.

aws rds add-role-to-db-cluster \
    --db-cluster-identifier mydbcluster \
    --role-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/RDSLoadFromS3

This command produces no output.
