create-transit-gateway-connect

Description

Creates a Connect attachment from a specified transit gateway attachment. A Connect attachment is a GRE-based tunnel attachment that you can use to establish a connection between a transit gateway and an appliance.

A Connect attachment uses an existing VPC or Amazon Web Services Direct Connect attachment as the underlying transport mechanism.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--transport-transit-gateway-attachment-id (string)

The ID of the transit gateway attachment. You can specify a VPC attachment or Amazon Web Services Direct Connect attachment.

--options (structure)

The Connect attachment options.

Protocol -> (string)

The tunnel protocol.

Shorthand Syntax:

Protocol=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Protocol": "gre"
}

--tag-specifications (list)

The tags to apply to the Connect attachment.

(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 .

--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 transit gateway Connect attachment

The following create-transit-gateway-connect example creates a Connect attachment, with the "gre" protocol, for the specified attachment.

aws ec2 create-transit-gateway-connect \
    --transport-transit-gateway-attachment-id tgw-attach-0a89069f57EXAMPLE \
    --options "Protocol=gre"

Output:

{
    "TransitGatewayConnect": {
        "TransitGatewayAttachmentId": "tgw-attach-037012e5dcEXAMPLE",
        "TransportTransitGatewayAttachmentId": "tgw-attach-0a89069f57EXAMPLE",
        "TransitGatewayId": "tgw-02f776b1a7EXAMPLE",
        "State": "pending",
        "CreationTime": "2021-03-09T19:59:17+00:00",
        "Options": {
            "Protocol": "gre"
        }
    }
}
