Request parameters


The ID of the instance.


The ID of the data shard that you want to remove. You can specify multiple IDs at a time. Separate multiple IDs with commas (,).

Note If you specify both the NodeId and ShardCount parameters, the system prioritizes the NodeId parameter.

The number of data shards that you want to remove. Shard removal starts from the end of the shard list.

Note For example, the instance has the following data shards: db-0, db-1, db-2, db-3, and db-4. In this case, if you set this parameter to 2, db-3 and db-4 are removed.

Specifies whether to enable forced transmission during a configuration change. Valid values:

  • false (default): Before the configuration change, the system checks the minor version of the instance. If the minor version of the instance is outdated, an error is reported. You must update the minor version of the instance and try again.
  • true: The system skips the version check and directly performs the configuration change.

Response parameters


The ID of the request.


The ID of the order. On the Orders page in the Billing Management console, you can obtain the details of the order based on the order ID.
