create-vpc-peering-connection

Description

Requests a VPC peering connection between two VPCs: a requester VPC that you own and an accepter VPC with which to create the connection. The accepter VPC can belong to another AWS account and can be in a different region to the requester VPC. The requester VPC and accepter VPC cannot have overlapping CIDR blocks.

The owner of the accepter VPC must accept the peering request to activate the peering connection. The VPC peering connection request expires after 7 days, after which it cannot be accepted or rejected.

If you create a VPC peering connection request between VPCs with overlapping CIDR blocks, the VPC peering connection has a status of failed .

Synopsis

  create-vpc-peering-connection
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--peer-owner-id <value>]
[--peer-vpc-id <value>]
[--vpc-id <value>]
[--peer-region <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--peer-owner-id (string)

The AWS account ID of the owner of the accepter VPC.

Default: Your AWS account ID

--peer-vpc-id (string)

The ID of the VPC with which you are creating the VPC peering connection. You must specify this parameter in the request.

--vpc-id (string)

The ID of the requester VPC. You must specify this parameter in the request.

--peer-region (string)

The region code for the accepter VPC, if the accepter VPC is located in a region other than the region in which you make the request.

Default: The region in which you make the request.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Examples

To create a VPC peering connection between your VPCs

This example requests a peering connection between your VPCs vpc-1a2b3c4d and vpc-11122233.

Command:

aws ec2 create-vpc-peering-connection --vpc-id vpc-1a2b3c4d --peer-vpc-id vpc-11122233

Output:
