Recommendation for migration: AWS RDS (MySql v5.6) to AWS Aurora (MySQL 5.7)

Last Modified: 2019-04-22
I am working through a production issue where the client company migrated from MySQL v5.6  (AWS RDS)  to   Aurora  (AWS), and the MySQL version is 5.7. Initially the migration worked, but ran into locks on the Aurora engine, within 24 hours.

I am looking for the best practice scenario for this migration, and recommendations.
