set-load-balancer-policies-for-backend-server

Description

Replaces the set of policies associated with the specified port on which the EC2 instance is listening with a new set of policies. At this time, only the back-end server authentication policy type can be applied to the instance ports; this policy type is composed of multiple public key policies.

Each time you use SetLoadBalancerPoliciesForBackendServer to enable the policies, use the PolicyNames parameter to list the policies that you want to enable.

You can use DescribeLoadBalancers or DescribeLoadBalancerPolicies to verify that the policy is associated with the EC2 instance.

For more information about enabling back-end instance authentication, see Configure Back-end Instance Authentication in the Classic Load Balancers Guide . For more information about Proxy Protocol, see Configure Proxy Protocol Support in the Classic Load Balancers Guide .

Synopsis

  set-load-balancer-policies-for-backend-server
--load-balancer-name <value>
--instance-port <value>
--policy-names <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--load-balancer-name (string)

The name of the load balancer.

--instance-port (integer)

The port number associated with the EC2 instance.

--policy-names (list)

The names of the policies. If the list is empty, then all current polices are removed from the EC2 instance.

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--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

To replace the policies associated with a port for a backend instance

This example replaces the policies that are currently associated with the specified port.

aws elb set-load-balancer-policies-for-backend-server --load-balancer-name my-load-balancer --instance-port 80 --policy-names my-ProxyProtocol-policy

To remove all policies that are currently associated with a port on your backend instance

This example removes all policies associated with the specified port.

Command:

aws elb set-load-balancer-policies-for-backend-server --load-balancer-name my-load-balancer --instance-port 80 --policy-names []

To confirm that the policies are removed, use the describe-load-balancer-policies command.
