AWS Config Rule: RDS Cluster Deletion Protection Enabled


Fernando Honig

Last Update il y a 8 mois

Description: Checks if an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) cluster has deletion protection enabled. This rule is NON_COMPLIANT if an RDS cluster does not have deletion protection enabled.

Trigger type: Configuration changes

AWS Region: All supported AWS regions except Middle East (Bahrain), China (Beijing), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Middle East (UAE), South America (Sao Paulo), Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich) Region

How to Resolve Manually

Much like the same config rule which checks RDS Instances, this one will check Clusters. One, or both, may be applicable to you.

To resolve this manually, when creating or editing your RDS Cluster, check under the additional configuration section and near the bottom you will see a section which will enable or disable deletion protection.

Now, with the vast majority of deployments, this is enabled by default. But the config rule will still exist to check if any have been disabled and therefore show as NON-COMPLIANT
