      Can we use Session manager for RDS DB connection? Do we have any option to connect RDS DB without ssh/bastion host?

      It was great up the point where you switched to mysql workbench. Putty would have been a better example because it separates the database connection and the bastion instance connection

      To much work. Connecting to a private rds should have been possible using aws cli (ala kubectl port-forward), without EDS instances.

      You hardcoded the private IP address in the security group. How can you guarantee that the private IP address won't change? Would it be better to make another security group and have a inbound rule that allows all port3306 traffic within that group and make the EC2 bastian host and the RDS contain that security group?

      Can you please confirm we need to set RDS public or not we need to access RDS from EC2 phpmyadmin but the RDS not public.

I followed all steps. i even checked the automated execution AWSSupport-TroubleshootConnectivityToRDS which also gives me SUCCESS. But, I cannot connect to my Oracle DB instance from MySQL Workbench. Any suggestions? Please assist

      Normaly we can directly connect from msql workbench to rds without any EC2 instance.
