Request Syntax

response_iterator = paginator.paginate(
            'Name': 'string',
            'Values': [
        'MaxItems': 123,

        'StartingToken': 'string'
  • GlobalClusterIdentifier (string) –

    The user-supplied DB cluster identifier. If this parameter is specified, information from only the specific DB cluster is returned. This parameter isn’t case-sensitive.


    • If supplied, must match an existing DBClusterIdentifier.

  • Filters (list) –

    This parameter isn’t 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

      • 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.

Return type:

Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • GlobalClusters (list) –

      The list of global clusters returned by this request.

      • (dict) –

        A data type representing an Aurora global database.

        • GlobalClusterIdentifier (string) –

          Contains a user-supplied global database cluster identifier. This identifier is the unique key that identifies a global database cluster.

        • GlobalClusterResourceId (string) –

          The Amazon Web Services Region-unique, immutable identifier for the global database cluster. This identifier is found in Amazon Web Services CloudTrail log entries whenever the Amazon Web Services KMS key for the DB cluster is accessed.

        • GlobalClusterArn (string) –

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the global database cluster.

        • Status (string) –

          Specifies the current state of this global database cluster.

        • Engine (string) –

          The Aurora database engine used by the global database cluster.

        • EngineVersion (string) –

          Indicates the database engine version.

        • DatabaseName (string) –

          The default database name within the new global database cluster.

        • StorageEncrypted (boolean) –

          The storage encryption setting for the global database cluster.

        • DeletionProtection (boolean) –

          The deletion protection setting for the new global database cluster.

        • GlobalClusterMembers (list) –

          The list of primary and secondary clusters within the global database cluster.

          • (dict) –

            A data structure with information about any primary and secondary clusters associated with an Aurora global database.

            • DBClusterArn (string) –

              The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for each Aurora cluster.

            • Readers (list) –

              The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for each read-only secondary cluster associated with the Aurora global database.

              • (string) –

            • IsWriter (boolean) –

              Specifies whether the Aurora cluster is the primary cluster (that is, has read-write capability) for the Aurora global database with which it is associated.

            • GlobalWriteForwardingStatus (string) –

              Specifies whether a secondary cluster in an Aurora global database has write forwarding enabled, not enabled, or is in the process of enabling it.

        • FailoverState (dict) –

          A data object containing all properties for the current state of an in-process or pending failover process for this Aurora global database. This object is empty unless the FailoverGlobalCluster API operation has been called on this Aurora global database ( GlobalCluster).

          • Status (string) –

            The current status of the Aurora global database ( GlobalCluster). Possible values are as follows:

            • pending – A request to fail over the Aurora global database ( GlobalCluster) has been received by the service. The GlobalCluster’s primary DB cluster and the specified secondary DB cluster are being verified before the failover process can start.

            • failing-over – This status covers the range of Aurora internal operations that take place during the failover process, such as demoting the primary Aurora DB cluster, promoting the secondary Aurora DB, and synchronizing replicas.

            • cancelling – The request to fail over the Aurora global database ( GlobalCluster) was cancelled and the primary Aurora DB cluster and the selected secondary Aurora DB cluster are returning to their previous states.

          • FromDbClusterArn (string) –

            The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Aurora DB cluster that is currently being demoted, and which is associated with this state.

          • ToDbClusterArn (string) –

            The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Aurora DB cluster that is currently being promoted, and which is associated with this state.

    • NextToken (string) –

      A token to resume pagination.
