create-virtual-service

Description

Creates a virtual service within a service mesh.

A virtual service is an abstraction of a real service that is provided by a virtual node directly or indirectly by means of a virtual router. Dependent services call your virtual service by its virtualServiceName , and those requests are routed to the virtual node or virtual router that is specified as the provider for the virtual service.

For more information about virtual services, see Virtual services .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-virtual-service
[--client-token <value>]
--mesh-name <value>
[--mesh-owner <value>]
--spec <value>
[--tags <value>]
--virtual-service-name <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 of the service mesh to create the virtual service in.

--mesh-owner (string)

The AWS IAM account ID of the service mesh owner. If the account ID is not your own, then the account that you specify must share the mesh with your account before you can create the resource in the service mesh. For more information about mesh sharing, see Working with Shared Meshes .

--spec (structure)

The virtual service specification to apply.

Shorthand Syntax:

provider={virtualNode={virtualNodeName=string},virtualRouter={virtualRouterName=string}}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "provider": {
    "virtualNode": {
      "virtualNodeName": "string"
    },
    "virtualRouter": {
      "virtualRouterName": "string"
    }
  }
}

--tags (list)

Optional metadata that you can apply to the virtual service 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.

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--virtual-service-name (string)

The name to use for the virtual service.

--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 virtual service with a virtual node provider

The following create-virtual-service example uses a JSON input file to create a virtual service with a virtual node provider.

aws appmesh create-virtual-service \
    --cli-input-json file://create-virtual-service-virtual-node.json

Contents of create-virtual-service-virtual-node.json:

{
    "meshName": "app1",
    "spec": {
        "provider": {
            "virtualNode": {
                "virtualNodeName": "vnServiceA"
            }
        }
    },
    "virtualServiceName": "serviceA.svc.cluster.local"
}

Output:

{
    "virtualService": {
        "meshName": "app1",
        "metadata": {
            "arn": "arn:aws:appmesh:us-east-1:123456789012:mesh/app1/virtualService/serviceA.svc.cluster.local",
            "createdAt": 1563810859.474,
            "lastUpdatedAt": 1563810967.179,
            "uid": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-11111EXAMPLE",
            "version": 2
        },
        "spec": {
            "provider": {
                "virtualNode": {
                    "virtualNodeName": "vnServiceA"
                }
            }
        },
        "status": {
            "status": "ACTIVE"
        },
        "virtualServiceName": "serviceA.svc.cluster.local"
    }
}

Example 2: To create a new virtual service with a virtual router provider

The following create-virtual-service example uses a JSON input file to create a virtual service with a virtual router provider.

aws appmesh create-virtual-service \
    --cli-input-json file://create-virtual-service-virtual-router.json

Contents of create-virtual-service-virtual-router.json:

{
    "meshName": "app1",
    "spec": {
        "provider": {
            "virtualRouter": {
                "virtualRouterName": "vrServiceB"
            }
        }
    },
    "virtualServiceName": "serviceB.svc.cluster.local"
}

Output:

{
    "virtualService": {
        "meshName": "app1",
        "metadata": {
            "arn": "arn:aws:appmesh:us-east-1:123456789012:mesh/app1/virtualService/serviceB.svc.cluster.local",
            "createdAt": 1563908363.999,
            "lastUpdatedAt": 1563908363.999,
            "uid": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-11111EXAMPLE",
            "version": 1
        },
        "spec": {
            "provider": {
                "virtualRouter": {
                    "virtualRouterName": "vrServiceB"
                }
            }
        },
        "status": {
            "status": "ACTIVE"
