How do I specify a source and a target database endpoint for my AWS Database Migration Service (AWS DMS) task?

Before you can run an AWS DMS task, you must create a replication instance, a source endpoint, and a target endpoint. You can create source and target endpoints using the AWS Database Migration Service console when you create a replication instance or after you create a replication instance. You can also create endpoints using the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).

Create endpoints while creating a replication instance

  1. Open the AWS Database Migration Service console.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Get started.
  3. On the Create replication instance page, specify your replication instance information.
  4. On the Connect source and target database endpoints page, specify your source and target endpoints. For more information, see Creating Source and Target Endpoints.

Create endpoints after creating a replication instance

  1. Open the AWS Database Migration Service console.
  2. In the navigation pane, under Endpoints, choose Create endpoint.
  3. Specify the source endpoint information, and then choose Create endpoint.
  4. In the content pane, choose Create endpoint.
  5. Specify the target endpoint information, and then choose Create endpoint.

For more information, see Creating Source and Target Endpoints.

Create endpoints using the AWS CLI

After you install and configure the latest version of the AWS CLI, run the create-endpoint command.
