  • DBProxyName (string) –


    The identifier of the DBProxy associated with the target group.

  • TargetGroupName (string) – The identifier of the DBProxyTargetGroup to describe.

  • Filters (list) –

    This parameter is not currently supported.

    • (dict) –

      A filter name and value pair that is used to return a more specific list of results from a describe operation. Filters can be used to match a set of resources by specific criteria, such as IDs. The filters supported by a describe operation are documented with the describe operation.


      Currently, wildcards are not supported in filters.

      The following actions can be filtered:

      • DescribeDBClusterBacktracks

      • DescribeDBClusterEndpoints

      • DescribeDBClusters

      • DescribeDBInstances

      • DescribeDBRecommendations

      • DescribeDBShardGroups

      • DescribePendingMaintenanceActions

      • Name (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

      • Values (list) – [REQUIRED]

        One or more filter values. Filter values are case-sensitive.

        • (string) –

  • PaginationConfig (dict) –

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) –

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) –

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) –

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.

Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • TargetGroups (list) –

      An arbitrary number of DBProxyTargetGroup objects, containing details of the corresponding target groups.

      • (dict) –

        Represents a set of RDS DB instances, Aurora DB clusters, or both that a proxy can connect to. Currently, each target group is associated with exactly one RDS DB instance or Aurora DB cluster.

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

        • DBProxyName (string) –

          The identifier for the RDS proxy associated with this target group.

        • TargetGroupName (string) –

          The identifier for the target group. This name must be unique for all target groups owned by your Amazon Web Services account in the specified Amazon Web Services Region.

        • TargetGroupArn (string) –

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) representing the target group.

        • IsDefault (boolean) –

          Indicates whether this target group is the first one used for connection requests by the associated proxy. Because each proxy is currently associated with a single target group, currently this setting is always true.

        • Status (string) –

          The current status of this target group. A status of available means the target group is correctly associated with a database. Other values indicate that you must wait for the target group to be ready, or take some action to resolve an issue.

        • ConnectionPoolConfig (dict) –

          The settings that determine the size and behavior of the connection pool for the target group.

          • MaxConnectionsPercent (integer) –

            The maximum size of the connection pool for each target in a target group. The value is expressed as a percentage of the max_connections setting for the RDS DB instance or Aurora DB cluster used by the target group.

          • MaxIdleConnectionsPercent (integer) –

            Controls how actively the proxy closes idle database connections in the connection pool. The value is expressed as a percentage of the max_connections setting for the RDS DB instance or Aurora DB cluster used by the target group. With a high value, the proxy leaves a high percentage of idle database connections open. A low value causes the proxy to close more idle connections and return them to the database.

          • ConnectionBorrowTimeout (integer) –

            The number of seconds for a proxy to wait for a connection to become available in the connection pool. Only applies when the proxy has opened its maximum number of connections and all connections are busy with client sessions.

          • SessionPinningFilters (list) –

            Each item in the list represents a class of SQL operations that normally cause all later statements in a session using a proxy to be pinned to the same underlying database connection. Including an item in the list exempts that class of SQL operations from the pinning behavior. This setting is only supported for MySQL engine family databases. Currently, the only allowed value is EXCLUDE_VARIABLE_SETS.

            • (string) –

          • InitQuery (string) –

            One or more SQL statements for the proxy to run when opening each new database connection. Typically used with SET statements to make sure that each connection has identical settings such as time zone and character set. This setting is empty by default. For multiple statements, use semicolons as the separator. You can also include multiple variables in a single SET statement, such as SET x=1, y=2.

        • CreatedDate (datetime) –

          The date and time when the target group was first created.

        • UpdatedDate (datetime) –

          The date and time when the target group was last updated.

    • NextToken (string) –

      A token to resume pagination.
