Creating an Event

Updated at: Jun 09, 2021 GMT+08:00


This section describes how to create an event to periodically respond to specific operations.

When event_scheduler for RDS DB instances is set to ON and the event function is enabled, you can perform operations on events.

When event_scheduler is set to OFF, but the event function is enabled, you can only create events and the events do not take effect.


  1. On the top menu bar, choose Database Management. On the displayed Objects page, select Events, and click Create Event.
