Move an BYOIP IPv4 CIDR to IPAM from a public IPv4 pool.

If you already have an IPv4 BYOIP CIDR with Amazon Web Services, you can move the CIDR to IPAM from a public IPv4 pool. You cannot move an IPv6 CIDR to IPAM. If you are bringing a new IP address to Amazon Web Services for the first time, complete the steps in Tutorial: BYOIP address CIDRs to IPAM .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
--cidr <value>
--ipam-pool-id <value>
--ipam-pool-owner <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--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 .

--cidr (string)


--ipam-pool-id (string)

The IPAM pool ID.

--ipam-pool-owner (string)

The Amazon Web Services account ID of the owner of the IPAM pool.

--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.



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 transfer a BYOIP CIDR to IPAM

The following move-byoip-cidr-to-ipam example transfers a BYOIP CIDR to IPAM.

    --region us-west-2 \
    --ipam-pool-id ipam-pool-0a03d430ca3f5c035 \
    --ipam-pool-owner 111111111111 \
