AWS Config Rule: DMS Replication Not Public


Fernando Honig

Last Update 3 days ago

Description: Checks whether AWS Database Migration Service replication instances are public. The rule is NON_COMPLIANT if PubliclyAccessible field is True.

Trigger type: Periodic

AWS Region: All supported AWS regions except Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Africa (Cape Town), Middle East (UAE), Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Europe (Milan), Israel (Tel Aviv), Canada West (Calgary), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich) Region

How to Resolve Manually

To resolve this manually, when creating a new Database Migration Replication Instance, in the main configuration settings under the VPC chosen, you will see the option Publicly accessible which by default is enabled.

Remove this checkmark to disable the replication instance from being publicly accessible.
