Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • DBClusterSnapshot (dict) –

      Contains the details for an Amazon Neptune DB cluster snapshot

      This data type is used as a response element in the DescribeDBClusterSnapshots action.

      • AvailabilityZones (list) –

        Provides the list of EC2 Availability Zones that instances in the DB cluster snapshot can be restored in.

        • (string) –

      • DBClusterSnapshotIdentifier (string) –

        Specifies the identifier for a DB cluster snapshot. Must match the identifier of an existing snapshot.

        After you restore a DB cluster using a DBClusterSnapshotIdentifier, you must specify the same DBClusterSnapshotIdentifier for any future updates to the DB cluster. When you specify this property for an update, the DB cluster is not restored from the snapshot again, and the data in the database is not changed.

        However, if you don’t specify the DBClusterSnapshotIdentifier, an empty DB cluster is created, and the original DB cluster is deleted. If you specify a property that is different from the previous snapshot restore property, the DB cluster is restored from the snapshot specified by the DBClusterSnapshotIdentifier, and the original DB cluster is deleted.

      • Status (string) –

        Specifies the status of this DB cluster snapshot.

      • Port (integer) –

        Specifies the port that the DB cluster was listening on at the time of the snapshot.

      • VpcId (string) –

        Provides the VPC ID associated with the DB cluster snapshot.

      • ClusterCreateTime (datetime) –

        If StorageEncrypted is true, the Amazon KMS key identifier for the encrypted DB cluster snapshot.

      • DBClusterSnapshotArn (string) –

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the DB cluster snapshot.

      • SourceDBClusterSnapshotArn (string) –

        If the DB cluster snapshot was copied from a source DB cluster snapshot, the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the source DB cluster snapshot, otherwise, a null value.

      • IAMDatabaseAuthenticationEnabled (boolean) –
