create-mesh

Description

Creates a service mesh.

A service mesh is a logical boundary for network traffic between services that are represented by resources within the mesh. After you create your service mesh, you can create virtual services, virtual nodes, virtual routers, and routes to distribute traffic between the applications in your mesh.

For more information about service meshes, see Service meshes .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-mesh
[--client-token <value>]
--mesh-name <value>
[--spec <value>]
[--tags <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--client-token (string)

Unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. Up to 36 letters, numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed.

--mesh-name (string)

The name to use for the service mesh.

--spec (structure)

The service mesh specification to apply.

egressFilter -> (structure)

The egress filter rules for the service mesh.

type -> (string)

The egress filter type. By default, the type is DROP_ALL , which allows egress only from virtual nodes to other defined resources in the service mesh (and any traffic to *.amazonaws.com for AWS API calls). You can set the egress filter type to ALLOW_ALL to allow egress to any endpoint inside or outside of the service mesh.

Shorthand Syntax:

egressFilter={type=string}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "egressFilter": {
    "type": "ALLOW_ALL"|"DROP_ALL"
  }
}

--tags (list)

Optional metadata that you can apply to the service mesh to assist with categorization and organization. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define. Tag keys can have a maximum character length of 128 characters, and tag values can have a maximum length of 256 characters.

(structure)

Optional metadata that you apply to a resource to assist with categorization and organization. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define. Tag keys can have a maximum character length of 128 characters, and tag values can have a maximum length of 256 characters.

key -> (string)

One part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

value -> (string)

The optional part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "key": "string",
    "value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

Example 1: To create a new service mesh

The following create-mesh example creates a service mesh.

aws appmesh create-mesh \
    --mesh-name app1

Output:

{
    "mesh":{
        "meshName":"app1",
        "metadata":{
            "arn":"arn:aws:appmesh:us-east-1:123456789012:mesh/app1",
            "createdAt":1563809909.282,
            "lastUpdatedAt":1563809909.282,
            "uid":"a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-11111EXAMPLE",
            "version":1
        },
        "spec":{},
        "status":{
            "status":"ACTIVE"
        }
    }
}

Example 2: To create a new service mesh with multiple tags

The following create-mesh example creates a service mesh with multiple tags.

aws appmesh create-mesh \
    --mesh-name app2 \
    --tags key=key1,value=value1 key=key2,value=value2 key=key3,value=value3

Output:

{
    "mesh":{
        "meshName":"app2",
        "metadata":{
            "arn":"arn:aws:appmesh:us-east-1:123456789012:mesh/app2",
            "createdAt":1563822121.877,
            "lastUpdatedAt":1563822121.877,
            "uid":"a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-11111EXAMPLE",
            "version":1
        },
        "spec":{},
        "status":{
            "status":"ACTIVE"
        }
    }
}
