AWS::AppMesh::VirtualGateway - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::AppMesh::VirtualGateway

Creates a virtual gateway.

A virtual gateway allows resources outside your mesh to communicate to resources that are inside your mesh. The virtual gateway represents an Envoy proxy running in an Amazon ECS task, in a Kubernetes service, or on an Amazon EC2 instance. Unlike a virtual node, which represents an Envoy running with an application, a virtual gateway represents Envoy deployed by itself.

For more information about virtual gateways, see Virtual gateways.

Return values

Ref

When you pass the logical ID of this resource to the intrinsic Ref function, Ref returns the resource ARN. For example:

{ "Ref": "myVirtualGateway" }

When you pass the logical ID of an AWS::AppMesh::VirtualGateway resource to the intrinsic Ref function, the function returns the gateway route ARN, such as arn:aws:appmesh:us-east-1:555555555555:virtualGateway/myVirtualGateway .

For more information about using the Ref function, see Ref.
