Defined in:
(unknown)

Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Sending a Request Using ELB

var elb = new AWS.ELB();
elb.addTags(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the ELB object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var elb = new AWS.ELB({apiVersion: '2012-06-01'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the elb service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  elb: '2012-06-01',
  // other service API versions
};

var elb = new AWS.ELB();

Version:

  • 2012-06-01

Waiter Resource States

This service supports a list of resource states that can be polled using the waitFor() method. The resource states are:

instanceDeregistered, anyInstanceInService, instanceInService

Examples:

Constructing a ELB object

var elb = new AWS.ELB({apiVersion: '2012-06-01'});

Options Hash (options):

  • params (map)

    An optional map of parameters to bind to every request sent by this service object. For more information on bound parameters, see "Working with Services" in the Getting Started Guide.

  • endpoint (String)

    The endpoint URI to send requests to. The default endpoint is built from the configured region. The endpoint should be a string like 'https://{service}.{region}.amazonaws.com'.

  • accessKeyId (String)

    your AWS access key ID.

  • secretAccessKey (String)

    your AWS secret access key.

  • sessionToken (AWS.Credentials)

    the optional AWS session token to sign requests with.

  • credentials (AWS.Credentials)

    the AWS credentials to sign requests with. You can either specify this object, or specify the accessKeyId and secretAccessKey options directly.

  • credentialProvider (AWS.CredentialProviderChain)

    the provider chain used to resolve credentials if no static credentials property is set.

  • region (String)

    the region to send service requests to. See AWS.ELB.region for more information.

  • maxRetries (Integer)

    the maximum amount of retries to attempt with a request. See AWS.ELB.maxRetries for more information.

  • maxRedirects (Integer)

    the maximum amount of redirects to follow with a request. See AWS.ELB.maxRedirects for more information.

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  • correctClockSkew (Boolean)

    whether to apply a clock skew correction and retry requests that fail because of an skewed client clock. Defaults to false.

  • s3ForcePathStyle (Boolean)

    whether to force path style URLs for S3 objects.

  • s3BucketEndpoint (Boolean)

    whether the provided endpoint addresses an individual bucket (false if it addresses the root API endpoint). Note that setting this configuration option requires an endpoint to be provided explicitly to the service constructor.

  • s3DisableBodySigning (Boolean)

    whether S3 body signing should be disabled when using signature version v4. Body signing can only be disabled when using https. Defaults to true.

  • retryDelayOptions (map)

    A set of options to configure the retry delay on retryable errors. Currently supported options are:

    • base [Integer] — The base number of milliseconds to use in the exponential backoff for operation retries. Defaults to 100 ms for all services except DynamoDB, where it defaults to 50ms.
    • customBackoff [function] — A custom function that accepts a retry count and returns the amount of time to delay in milliseconds. The base option will be ignored if this option is supplied.
  • httpOptions (map)

    A set of options to pass to the low-level HTTP request. Currently supported options are:

    • proxy [String] — the URL to proxy requests through
    • agent [http.Agent, https.Agent] — the Agent object to perform HTTP requests with. Used for connection pooling. Defaults to the global agent (http.globalAgent) for non-SSL connections. Note that for SSL connections, a special Agent object is used in order to enable peer certificate verification. This feature is only available in the Node.js environment.
    • connectTimeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after failing to establish a connection with the server after connectTimeout milliseconds. This timeout has no effect once a socket connection has been established.
    • timeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after timeout milliseconds of inactivity on the socket. Defaults to two minutes (120000).
    • xhrAsync [Boolean] — Whether the SDK will send asynchronous HTTP requests. Used in the browser environment only. Set to false to send requests synchronously. Defaults to true (async on).
    • xhrWithCredentials [Boolean] — Sets the "withCredentials" property of an XMLHttpRequest object. Used in the browser environment only. Defaults to false.
  • apiVersion (String, Date)

  • apiVersions (map<String, String|Date>)

    a map of service identifiers (the lowercase service class name) with the API version to use when instantiating a service. Specify 'latest' for each individual that can use the latest available version.

  • logger (#write, #log)

    an object that responds to .write() (like a stream) or .log() (like the console object) in order to log information about requests

  • systemClockOffset (Number)

    an offset value in milliseconds to apply to all signing times. Use this to compensate for clock skew when your system may be out of sync with the service time. Note that this configuration option can only be applied to the global AWS.config object and cannot be overridden in service-specific configuration. Defaults to 0 milliseconds.

  • signatureVersion (String)

    the signature version to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration). Possible values are: 'v2', 'v3', 'v4'.

  • signatureCache (Boolean)

    whether the signature to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration) is cached. Only applies to the signature version 'v4'. Defaults to true.

createAppCookieStickinessPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Generates a stickiness policy with sticky session lifetimes that follow that of an application-generated cookie. This policy can be associated only with HTTP/HTTPS listeners.

This policy is similar to the policy created by CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicy, except that the lifetime of the special Elastic Load Balancing cookie, AWSELB, follows the lifetime of the application-generated cookie specified in the policy configuration. The load balancer only inserts a new stickiness cookie when the application response includes a new application cookie.

If the application cookie is explicitly removed or expires, the session stops being sticky until a new application cookie is issued.

For more information, see Application-Controlled Session Stickiness in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To generate a stickiness policy for your load balancer


/* This example generates a stickiness policy that follows the sticky session lifetimes of the application-generated cookie. */

 var params = {
  CookieName: "my-app-cookie", 
  LoadBalancerName: "my-load-balancer", 
  PolicyName: "my-app-cookie-policy"
 };
 elb.createAppCookieStickinessPolicy(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
   }
   */
 });

Calling the createAppCookieStickinessPolicy operation

var params = {
  CookieName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  LoadBalancerName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  PolicyName: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
elb.createAppCookieStickinessPolicy(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • LoadBalancerName — (String)

      The name of the load balancer.

    • PolicyName — (String)

      The name of the policy being created. Policy names must consist of alphanumeric characters and dashes (-). This name must be unique within the set of policies for this load balancer.

    • CookieName — (String)

      The name of the application cookie used for stickiness.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

createLBCookieStickinessPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Generates a stickiness policy with sticky session lifetimes controlled by the lifetime of the browser (user-agent) or a specified expiration period. This policy can be associated only with HTTP/HTTPS listeners.

When a load balancer implements this policy, the load balancer uses a special cookie to track the instance for each request. When the load balancer receives a request, it first checks to see if this cookie is present in the request. If so, the load balancer sends the request to the application server specified in the cookie. If not, the load balancer sends the request to a server that is chosen based on the existing load-balancing algorithm.

A cookie is inserted into the response for binding subsequent requests from the same user to that server. The validity of the cookie is based on the cookie expiration time, which is specified in the policy configuration.

For more information, see Duration-Based Session Stickiness in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To generate a duration-based stickiness policy for your load balancer


/* This example generates a stickiness policy with sticky session lifetimes controlled by the specified expiration period. */

 var params = {
  CookieExpirationPeriod: 60, 
  LoadBalancerName: "my-load-balancer", 
  PolicyName: "my-duration-cookie-policy"
 };

var params = {
  LoadBalancerName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  PolicyName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  CookieExpirationPeriod: 0
};

You can add listeners, security groups, subnets, and tags when you create your load balancer, or you can add them later using CreateLoadBalancerListeners, ApplySecurityGroupsToLoadBalancer, AttachLoadBalancerToSubnets, and AddTags.

To describe your current load balancers, see DescribeLoadBalancers. When you are finished with a load balancer, you can delete it using DeleteLoadBalancer.

You can create up to 20 load balancers per region per account. You can request an increase for the number of load balancers for your account. For more information, see Limits for Your Classic Load Balancer in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

          If enabled, the load balancer routes the request traffic evenly across all instances regardless of the Availability Zones.

          For more information, see Configure Cross-Zone Load Balancing in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

          • Enabledrequired — (Boolean)

            Specifies whether cross-zone load balancing is enabled for the load balancer.

        • AccessLog — (map)

          If enabled, the load balancer captures detailed information of all requests and delivers the information to the Amazon S3 bucket that you specify.

          For more information, see Enable Access Logs in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

          • Enabledrequired — (Boolean)

            Specifies whether access logs are enabled for the load balancer.

          • S3BucketName — (String)

            The name of the Amazon S3 bucket where the access logs are stored.

          • EmitInterval — (Integer)

            The interval for publishing the access logs. You can specify an interval of either 5 minutes or 60 minutes.

            Default: 60 minutes

          • S3BucketPrefix — (String)

            The logical hierarchy you created for your Amazon S3 bucket, for example my-bucket-prefix/prod. If the prefix is not provided, the log is placed at the root level of the bucket.

        • ConnectionDraining — (map)

          If enabled, the load balancer allows existing requests to complete before the load balancer shifts traffic away from a deregistered or unhealthy instance.

          For more information, see Configure Connection Draining in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

          • Enabledrequired — (Boolean)

            Specifies whether connection draining is enabled for the load balancer.

          • Timeout — (Integer)

            The maximum time, in seconds, to keep the existing connections open before deregistering the instances.

        • ConnectionSettings — (map)

          If enabled, the load balancer allows the connections to remain idle (no data is sent over the connection) for the specified duration.

          By default, Elastic Load Balancing maintains a 60-second idle connection timeout for both front-end and back-end connections of your load balancer. For more information, see Configure Idle Connection Timeout in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

          • IdleTimeoutrequired — (Integer)

            The time, in seconds, that the connection is allowed to be idle (no data has been sent over the connection) before it is closed by the load balancer.

        • AdditionalAttributes — (Array<map>)

          This parameter is reserved.

          • Key — (String)

            This parameter is reserved.

          • Value — (String)

            This parameter is reserved.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

registerInstancesWithLoadBalancer(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Adds the specified instances to the specified load balancer.

The instance must be a running instance in the same network as the load balancer (EC2-Classic or the same VPC). If you have EC2-Classic instances and a load balancer in a VPC with ClassicLink enabled, you can link the EC2-Classic instances to that VPC and then register the linked EC2-Classic instances with the load balancer in the VPC.

Note that RegisterInstanceWithLoadBalancer completes when the request has been registered. Instance registration takes a little time to complete. To check the state of the registered instances, use DescribeLoadBalancers or DescribeInstanceHealth.

After the instance is registered, it starts receiving traffic and requests from the load balancer. Any instance that is not in one of the Availability Zones registered for the load balancer is moved to the OutOfService state. If an Availability Zone is added to the load balancer later, any instances registered with the load balancer move to the InService state.

To deregister instances from a load balancer, use DeregisterInstancesFromLoadBalancer.

For more information, see Register or De-Register EC2 Instances in the Classic Load Balancers Guide.

Examples:

To register instances with a load balancer


/* This example registers the specified instance with the specified load balancer. */
