[ aws . directconnect ]



Confirm the creation of a hosted connection on an interconnect.

Upon creation, the hosted connection is initially in the 'Ordering' state, and will remain in this state until the owner calls confirm-connection to confirm creation of the hosted connection.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--connection-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--connection-id (string)

The ID of the connection. This field is also used as the ID type for operations that use multiple connection types (LAG, interconnect, and/or connection).

Example: dxcon-fg5678gh

Default: None

--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.

--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.


To confirm the creation of a hosted connection on an interconnect

The following confirm-connection command confirms the creation of a hosted connection on an interconnect:

aws directconnect confirm-connection --connection-id dxcon-fg2wi7hy


    "connectionState": "pending"


connectionState -> (string)

State of the connection.

  • Ordering : The initial state of a hosted connection provisioned on an interconnect. The connection stays in the ordering state until the owner of the hosted connection confirms or declines the connection order.
  • Requested : The initial state of a standard connection. The connection stays in the requested state until the Letter of Authorization (LOA) is sent to the customer.
  • Pending : The connection has been approved, and is being initialized.
  • Available : The network link is up, and the connection is ready for use.
  • Down : The network link is down.
  • Deleting : The connection is in the process of being deleted.
  • Deleted : The connection has been deleted.
  • Rejected : A hosted connection in the 'Ordering' state will enter the 'Rejected' state if it is deleted by the end customer.
