ApsaraDB RDS:Disable the database proxy feature

Last Updated:Jan 12, 2024

This topic describes how to disable the database proxy feature for an ApsaraDB RDS for MySQL instance. If your RDS instance has a small number of read requests or you no longer use the database proxy feature, you can disable the feature.


The database proxy feature is enabled. For more information, see Enable the database proxy feature.

Usage notes

  • If you disable the database proxy feature, database proxy endpoints are released and you cannot use internal endpoints or public endpoints of the database proxy endpoints to connect to your RDS instance. A database proxy endpoint is formerly known as a proxy terminal.

  • If you disable the database proxy feature, database proxy endpoints become unavailable. The endpoints of your primary RDS instance are not affected.

  • If you enable the database proxy feature after you disable the feature, the database proxy endpoints change.


  1. Go to the Instances page. In the top navigation bar, select the region in which the RDS instance resides. Then, find the RDS instance and click the ID of the instance.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Database Proxy.

  3. In the upper-right corner, click Disable Database Proxy.

  4. In the dialog box that appears, click OK.
