Elastic Compute Service:StartDiskReplicaGroup

Last Updated:Mar 22, 2024

Enables the async replication feature for replication pairs that belong to a replication pair-consistent group. The first time the async replication feature is enabled for the replication pairs, the system performs a full synchronization to synchronize all data from disks at the primary site (primary disks) to disks at the secondary site (secondary disks). Then, the system periodically synchronizes incremental data based on the recovery point objective (RPO) of the replication pair-consistent group.

Operation description

Usage notes

  • For information about the regions in which the replication pair-consistent group feature is available, see Overview .
  • If you set the OneShot to false, the replication pair-consistent group must be in the Created (created ), Synchronizing (syncing ), Normal (normal ), or Stopped (stopped) state.
  • If you set OneShot to true, the replication pair-consistent group must be in the Created (created ), One-time Syncing (manual_syncing ), or Stopped (stopped) state. The time interval between two consecutive one-time synchronizations must be longer than one half of the recovery point objective (RPO).
  • After a replication pair-consistent group is activated, the group enters the Initial Syncing (initial_syncing) state and the system performs the first async replication to replicate all data from the primary disks to secondary disks.

Authorization information

The following table shows the authorization information corresponding to the API. The authorization information can be used in the Action policy element to grant a RAM user or RAM role the permissions to call this API operation. Description:

  • Operation: the value that you can use in the Action element to specify the operation on a resource.
  • Access level: the access level of each operation. The levels are read, write, and list.
  • Resource type: the type of the resource on which you can authorize the RAM user or the RAM role to perform the operation. Take note of the following items:
    • The required resource types are displayed in bold characters.
    • If the permissions cannot be granted at the resource level, All Resources is used in the Resource type column of the operation.
  • Condition Key: the condition key that is defined by the cloud service.
  • Associated operation: other operations that the RAM user or the RAM role must have permissions to perform to complete the operation. To complete the operation, the RAM user or the RAM role must have the permissions to perform the associated operations.

Request parameters


The ID of the replication pair-consistent group.


The ID of the replication pair-consistent group. You can call the DescribeDiskReplicaGroups operation to query the IDs of replication pair-consistent groups.


The client token that is used to ensure the idempotence of the request. You can use the client to generate the value, but you must make sure that the value is unique among different requests. The ClientToken value can contain only ASCII characters and cannot exceed 64 characters in length. For more information, see How to ensure idempotence.


Specifies whether to immediately synchronize data once. Valid values:

  • true: immediately synchronizes data once.
  • false: synchronizes data based on the RPO of the replication pair-consistent group.

Default value: false.
