Welcome to Relational Database Service API Reference. RDS is an online relational database service based on a cloud computing platform. RDS is reliable, scalable, and easy to manage. It provides a comprehensive performance monitoring system, multiple levels of security, and a professional database management platform, allowing you to easily set up and scale a relational database.
This document describes how to use application programming interfaces (APIs) to perform operations on RDS DB instances, such as DB instance creation, backup and restoration, query, parameter modifications, and deletions. For details about all supported operations, see API Overview.
If you plan to access RDS through an API, ensure that you are familiar with RDS concepts. For details, see Service Overview in Relational Database Service User Guide.
