ApsaraDB for Redis:MigrateToOtherZone

Last Updated:May 28, 2024

Migrates an ApsaraDB for Redis instance to another zone in the same region.

Operation description

For more information about how to migrate an instance across zones in the ApsaraDB for Redis console, see Migrate an instance across zones.

  • If the network type of an ApsaraDB for Redis instance is switched from classic network to Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), and the endpoint of the classic network is retained, you can migrate the instance across zones only after the classic network endpoint is released upon expiration.
  • After the data is migrated, the endpoint of an instance remains unchanged. However, the virtual IP address (VIP) is changed. We recommend that you use the endpoint instead of the VIP to connect to the instance.
  • Debugging

    OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer.

    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 ApsaraDB for Redis instance.


    The ID of the destination primary zone. You can call the DescribeZones operation to query zone IDs.


    The ID of the vSwitch.

  • The vSwitch must be deployed in the zone that is specified by the ZoneId parameter.
  • If the network type of the instance is VPC, this parameter is required.
  • vsw-bp1e7clcw529l773d****

    Specifies the time when the database is switched after data is migrated. Valid values:

    • Immediately: immediately switched after the data is migrated.
    • MaintainTime: switched within the maintenance window.
    • 0: immediately switched after the data is migrated.
    • 1: switched within the maintenance window.
    Note Default value: Immediately.

    The ID of the destination secondary zone. You can call the DescribeZones operation to query zone IDs.

    Note You can specify this parameter to deploy the master node and replica node in different zones to implement zone-disaster recovery. This helps withstand data center-level breakdowns.

    Response parameters


    The ID of the request.
