create-ipam

Description

Create an IPAM. Amazon VPC IP Address Manager (IPAM) is a VPC feature that you can use to automate your IP address management workflows including assigning, tracking, troubleshooting, and auditing IP addresses across Amazon Web Services Regions and accounts throughout your Amazon Web Services Organization.

For more information, see Create an IPAM in the Amazon VPC IPAM User Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-ipam
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--description <value>]
[--operating-regions <value>]
[--tag-specifications <value>]
[--client-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

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

A check for 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 .

--description (string)

A description for the IPAM.

--operating-regions (list)

The operating Regions for the IPAM. Operating Regions are Amazon Web Services Regions where the IPAM is allowed to manage IP address CIDRs. IPAM only discovers and monitors resources in the Amazon Web Services Regions you select as operating Regions.

For more information about operating Regions, see Create an IPAM in the Amazon VPC IPAM User Guide .

(structure)

Add an operating Region to an IPAM. Operating Regions are Amazon Web Services Regions where the IPAM is allowed to manage IP address CIDRs. IPAM only discovers and monitors resources in the Amazon Web Services Regions you select as operating Regions.

For more information about operating Regions, see Create an IPAM in the Amazon VPC IPAM User Guide .

RegionName -> (string)

The name of the operating Region.

Shorthand Syntax:

RegionName=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "RegionName": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--tag-specifications (list)

The key/value combination of a tag assigned to the resource. Use the tag key in the filter name and the tag value as the filter value. For example, to find all resources that have a tag with the key Owner and the value TeamA , specify tag:Owner for the filter name and TeamA for the filter value.

(structure)

The tags to apply to a resource when the resource is being created.

Note

The Valid Values lists all the resource types that can be tagged. However, the action you're using might not support tagging all of these resource types. If you try to tag a resource type that is unsupported for the action you're using, you'll get an error.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of resource to tag on creation.

Tags -> (list)

The tags to apply to the resource.

(structure)

Describes a tag.

Key -> (string)

The key of the tag.

Value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

Constraints: Tag values are case-sensitive and accept a maximum of 256 Unicode characters.

Shorthand Syntax:

ResourceType=string,Tags=[{Key=string,Value=string},{Key=string,Value=string}] ...

--client-token (string)

A unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. For more information, see Ensuring Idempotency .

--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

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create an IPAM

The following create-ipam example creates an IPAM.

(Linux):

aws ec2 create-ipam \
    --description "Example description" \
    --operating-regions "RegionName=us-east-2" "RegionName=us-west-1" \
    --tag-specifications 'ResourceType=ipam,Tags=[{Key=Name,Value=ExampleIPAM}]'

(Windows):

aws ec2 create-ipam ^
    --description "Example description" ^
    --operating-regions "RegionName=us-east-2" "RegionName=us-west-1" ^
    --tag-specifications ResourceType=ipam,Tags=[{Key=Name,Value=ExampleIPAM}]
