[ aws . ec2 ]



Associates a subnet in your VPC or an internet gateway or virtual private gateway attached to your VPC with a route table in your VPC. This association causes traffic from the subnet or gateway to be routed according to the routes in the route table. The action returns an association ID, which you need in order to disassociate the route table later. A route table can be associated with multiple subnets.

For more information, see Route tables in the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
--route-table-id <value>
[--subnet-id <value>]
[--gateway-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--route-table-id (string)

The ID of the route table.

--subnet-id (string)

The ID of the subnet.

--gateway-id (string)

The ID of the internet gateway or virtual private gateway.

--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.
