VirtualNodeSpec - AWS App Mesh


An object that represents the specification of a virtual node.



A reference to an object that represents the defaults for backends.

Type: BackendDefaults object

Required: No


The backends that the virtual node is expected to send outbound traffic to.


App Mesh doesn't validate the existence of those virtual services specified in backends. This is to prevent a cyclic dependency between virtual nodes and virtual services creation. Make sure the virtual service name is correct. The virtual service can be created afterwards if it doesn't already exist.

Type: Array of Backend objects

Required: No


The listener that the virtual node is expected to receive inbound traffic from. You can specify one listener.

Type: Array of Listener objects

Required: No


The inbound and outbound access logging information for the virtual node.

Type: Logging object

Required: No


The service discovery information for the virtual node. If your virtual node does not expect ingress traffic, you can omit this parameter. If you specify a listener, then you must specify service discovery information.

Type: ServiceDiscovery object

Note: This object is a Union. Only one member of this object can be specified or returned.

Required: No
