create-network-insights-path

Description

Creates a path to analyze for reachability.

Reachability Analyzer enables you to analyze and debug network reachability between two resources in your virtual private cloud (VPC). For more information, see What is Reachability Analyzer .

Options

--source-ip (string)

The IP address of the Amazon Web Services resource that is the source of the path.

--destination-ip (string)

The IP address of the Amazon Web Services resource that is the destination of the path.

--source (string)

The Amazon Web Services resource that is the source of the path.

--destination (string)

The Amazon Web Services resource that is the destination of the path.

--protocol (string)

The protocol.

Possible values:

  • tcp
  • udp

--destination-port (integer)

The destination port.

--tag-specifications (list)

The tags to add to the path.

(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.

Constraints: Tag keys are case-sensitive and accept a maximum of 127 Unicode characters. May not begin with aws: .

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}] ...

--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 .

--client-token (string)

Unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. For more information, see How to ensure 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 a path

The following create-network-insights-path example creates a path. The source is the specified internet gateway and the destination is the specified EC2 instance. To determine whether the destination is reachable using the specified protocol and port, analyze the path using the start-network-insights-analysis command.

aws ec2 create-network-insights-path \
    --source igw-0797cccdc9d73b0e5 \
    --destination i-0495d385ad28331c7 \
    --destination-port 22 \
    --protocol TCP

Output:

{
    "NetworkInsightsPaths": {
        "NetworkInsightsPathId": "nip-0b26f224f1d131fa8",
        "NetworkInsightsPathArn": "arn:aws:ec2:us-east-1:123456789012:network-insights-path/nip-0b26f224f1d131fa8",
        "CreatedDate": "2021-01-20T22:43:46.933Z",
        "Source": "igw-0797cccdc9d73b0e5",
        "Destination": "i-0495d385ad28331c7",
        "Protocol": "tcp"
    }
}
