Is it possible for RDS Proxy to ignore a reader instance?


We have an Aurora cluster with multiple read-only instances. So far we have set up a custom endpoint in the cluster itself to keep one of those readers from being used in production, so that we can run diagnostic and reporting queries without impacting the production system. This week we migrated to use an RDS Proxy, but I have not figured out how to sync it to my custom endpoint/prevent it from using that one instance. Is this possible with a Proxy?

RDS proxy does not currently support custom endpoints. It goes with the default reader end point. The option would to assign a tiering to all of your reader instances and the instance with highest tiering ( lowest number) will be promoted in case of a failover.
