Share Snapshot Lambda Module

View SourceRelease Notes

This module creates an AWS Lambda function that can share snapshots of an Amazon Relational Database (RDS) database with another AWS account. Typically, the snapshots are created by the lambda-create-snapshot module, which can be configured to automatically trigger this lambda function after each run.

Background info

For more info on how to backup RDS snapshots to a separate AWS account, check out the lambda-create-snapshot module documentation.

Sample Usage

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# OPTIONAL VARIABLES
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# Set to false to have this module skip creating resources. This weird
# parameter exists solely because Terraform does not support conditional

# The maximum number of retries the lambda function will make while waiting
# for the snapshot to be available

# The name for the lambda function and other resources created by these
