attach-load-balancers

Description

Note

To attach an Application Load Balancer, Network Load Balancer, or Gateway Load Balancer, use the AttachLoadBalancerTargetGroups API operation instead.

Attaches one or more Classic Load Balancers to the specified Auto Scaling group. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling registers the running instances with these Classic Load Balancers.

To describe the load balancers for an Auto Scaling group, call the DescribeLoadBalancers API. To detach the load balancer from the Auto Scaling group, call the DetachLoadBalancers API.

For more information, see Elastic Load Balancing and Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide .

Synopsis

  attach-load-balancers
--auto-scaling-group-name <value>
--load-balancer-names <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

The name of the Auto Scaling group.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "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.
