Amazon RDS Data API supports tag-based authorization

Posted on: Nov 4, 2020

RDS Data API now supports tag-based authorization to enable easy management of access to Amazon Aurora Serverless clusters.  

You can create an IAM policy that allows or denies access from Data API to an Aurora Serverless cluster based on its tag. For example, you can allow specific users to invoke Data API on Aurora Serverless clusters only if those clusters are tagged as "development". Refer to Working with tag-based authorization for details.

Data API enables you to focus on building your applications without worrying about managing database connections or connection pools. Instead, you can issue SQL commands against an Aurora Serverless cluster by simply invoking a HTTPS API endpoint. Read our documentation to get started with Data API. 

Amazon Aurora is a MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database built for the cloud, that combines the performance and availability of traditional enterprise databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases.
