Binding an EIP


You can bind an EIP to a DB instance for public accessibility and can unbind the EIP from the DB instance as required.


  • You need to configure security groups and enable specific IP addresses and ports to access the target DB instance. Before accessing the DB instance, you need to add an individual IP address or an IP address range that will access the DB instance to the inbound rule. For details, see section Configuring Security Group Rules.
  • Traffic generated by the public network is charged. You can unbind the EIP from the DB instance when the EIP is no longer used.

Binding an EIP

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner and select a region and a project.
  3. Click in the upper left corner of the page and choose Database > Relational Database Service. The RDS console is displayed.
  4. On the Instance Management page, click the target DB instance.
  5. In the navigation pane on the left, choose Connection Management. In the Connection Information area, click Bind next to the EIP field.

  6. In the displayed dialog box, select an EIP and click OK.

    If no EIPs are available, click View EIP and create an EIP on the network console. After the EIP is created, return to the RDS console and perform 5 again.
