» Data Source: aws_db_cluster_snapshot

Use this data source to get information about a DB Cluster Snapshot for use when provisioning DB clusters.

» Example Usage

data "aws_db_cluster_snapshot" "development_final_snapshot" {
  db_cluster_identifier = "development_cluster"
  most_recent           = true

# Use the last snapshot of the dev database before it was destroyed to create
# a new dev database.
resource "aws_rds_cluster" "aurora" {
  cluster_identifier   = "development_cluster"
  snapshot_identifier  = "${data.aws_db_cluster_snapshot.development_final_snapshot.id}"
  db_subnet_group_name = "my_db_subnet_group"

  lifecycle {
    ignore_changes = ["snapshot_identifier"]

resource "aws_rds_cluster_instance" "aurora" {
  cluster_identifier   = "${aws_rds_cluster.aurora.id}"
  instance_class       = "db.t2.small"
  db_subnet_group_name = "my_db_subnet_group"

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • most_recent - (Optional) If more than one result is returned, use the most recent Snapshot.

  • db_cluster_identifier - (Optional) Returns the list of snapshots created by the specific db_cluster

  • db_cluster_snapshot_identifier - (Optional) Returns information on a specific snapshot_id.

  • snapshot_type - (Optional) The type of snapshots to be returned. If you don't specify a SnapshotType value, then both automated and manual DB cluster snapshots are returned. Shared and public DB Cluster Snapshots are not included in the returned results by default. Possible values are, automated, manual, shared and public.

  • include_shared - (Optional) Set this value to true to include shared manual DB Cluster Snapshots from other AWS accounts that this AWS account has been given permission to copy or restore, otherwise set this value to false. The default is false.

  • include_public - (Optional) Set this value to true to include manual DB Cluster Snapshots that are public and can be copied or restored by any AWS account, otherwise set this value to false. The default is false.
