Edit DB System

Edit a DB System, and change the details about the DB System, the maintenance window and the backup policy.

  • Maintenance Window.

    The maintenance window is a two-hour period specified in Coordinated Universal Time, UTC. When an update is available, MySQL HeatWave on AWS initiates it during this window. The time required to apply patches and updates may extend beyond the maintenance window and require a DB System restart. For more information, see Maintenance.

  • Backup policy.

    Automatic backups are optional. The retention period is from 1 to 35 days for automatic backups, with a default of 7 days. An automatic backup will start during the hour following the Backup start time, if this is set. The default time to start an automatic backup is a time between 11:00 and 07:00 UTC, and will be the same time every day.
