Create a New RDS Parameter Group


Create a RDS Parameter Group.  Parameter groups contain configuration parameters and their settings.  They govern the behavior of your RDS database.



Step 1: Navigation

  • Navigate to:  Clouds -> AWS US -> RDS Parameter Groups

Step 2: Create and save your parameter group

  • Select the New Group action button and provide the following information:
    • Group Name - Name your parameter group (One string, case is not preserved.  Required. Example:  StagingParams )
    • Group Description - Describe your group.  (Alphanumeric string.  Required.  Example:  Try new settings for stage and test deployment)
    • DB Engine - MySQL 5.1.  Only MySQL 5.1 is currently supported, so it is pre-populated for you in the web form.
  • Select the Create action button to save your Parameter Group and all of its settings.
