Creating an Event

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


  • Create an event to periodically response to specific operations on databases.
  • When event_scheduler of an RDS DB instance is set to ON, and the event function is enabled, you can manage 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.
