After creating a RDS Parameter Group, the MySQL parameters and their default values are set for you. 

  • To view the parameters:  Clouds -> AWS US -> RDS Parameter Groups -> Select the ParameterGroupName

The following fields are displayed (for dozens of individual parameters):

  • Parameter Name - Name of the individual parameter

  • Parameter Value - Value of the parameter

  • Type

    • Data Type - Boolean, integer or string.

    • Apply Type - The type of parameter.  Either static or dynamic.

  • Source - Parameter source.

    • System: Amazon RDS service;

    • EngineDefault:  Source is the database engine;

    • User: Parameter value came from the user

  • Value - Actual parameter value.  (Boolean, integer or string value.)  A "-" indicates it is not set, and a default value will be used.

  • Description - A short description of the parameter

Note!  Not all parameters are modifiable.  Modifiable parameters have an actionable link for the parameter name.
