In mid 2019 AWS changed the UI and Workflow to create RDS DBs in the console. This has led to a a few problems in the courses. This will show you how to turn on the new UI if it does not happen automatically.
Some users may find that they are not presented with the shiny new interface to create a new
database via the RDS console. This will mean that you won’t initially see the blue banner with the
new interface as shown below.
For those who are seeing the older interface, access the new interface for RDS by clicking on the
“Try it now” button that you will find in the “Aurora global databases feature is now available” box.
Do not worry, this won’t set up anything, but it will take you to the new interface.
