Package rds provides the client and types for making API
requests to Amazon Relational Database Service.
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) is a web service that makes
it easier to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud.
It provides cost-efficient, resizable capacity for an industry-standard relational
database and manages common database administration tasks, freeing up developers
to focus on what makes their applications and businesses unique.
Amazon RDS gives you access to the capabilities of a MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL,
Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or Amazon Aurora database server. These capabilities
mean that the code, applications, and tools you already use today with your
existing databases work with Amazon RDS without modification. Amazon RDS
automatically backs up your database and maintains the database software
that powers your DB instance. Amazon RDS is flexible: you can scale your
database instance's compute resources and storage capacity to meet your application's
demand. As with all Amazon Web Services, there are no up-front investments,
and you pay only for the resources you use.
This interface reference for Amazon RDS contains documentation for a programming
or command line interface you can use to manage Amazon RDS. Note that Amazon
RDS is asynchronous, which means that some interfaces might require techniques
such as polling or callback functions to determine when a command has been
applied. In this reference, the parameter descriptions indicate whether a
command is applied immediately, on the next instance reboot, or during the
maintenance window. The reference structure is as follows, and we list following
some related topics from the user guide.

To Amazon Relational Database Service with the SDK use the New function to create
a new service client. With that client you can make API requests to the service.
These clients are safe to use concurrently.
See the SDK's documentation for more information on how to use the SDK.
See aws.Config documentation for more information on configuring SDK clients.
See the Amazon Relational Database Service client RDS for more
information on creating client for this service.
The rdsutil package's BuildAuthToken function provides a connection
authentication token builder. Given an endpoint of the RDS database,
AWS region, DB user, and AWS credentials the function will create an
presigned URL to use as the authentication token for the database's
The following example shows how to use BuildAuthToken to create an authentication
token for connecting to a MySQL database in RDS.
