modify-load-balancer-attributes

Description

Modifies the specified attributes of the specified Application Load Balancer, Network Load Balancer, or Gateway Load Balancer.

If any of the specified attributes can't be modified as requested, the call fails. Any existing attributes that you do not modify retain their current values.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  modify-load-balancer-attributes
--load-balancer-arn <value>
--attributes <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--load-balancer-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the load balancer.

--attributes (list)

The load balancer attributes.

(structure)

Information about a load balancer attribute.

Key -> (string)

The name of the attribute.

The following attribute is supported by all load balancers:

  • deletion_protection.enabled - Indicates whether deletion protection is enabled. The value is true or false . The default is false .

The following attributes are supported by both Application Load Balancers and Network Load Balancers:

  • access_logs.s3.enabled - Indicates whether access logs are enabled. The value is true or false . The default is false .
  • access_logs.s3.bucket - The name of the S3 bucket for the access logs. This attribute is required if access logs are enabled. The bucket must exist in the same region as the load balancer and have a bucket policy that grants Elastic Load Balancing permissions to write to the bucket.
  • access_logs.s3.prefix - The prefix for the location in the S3 bucket for the access logs.
  • ipv6.deny_all_igw_traffic - Blocks internet gateway (IGW) access to the load balancer. It is set to false for internet-facing load balancers and true for internal load balancers, preventing unintended access to your internal load balancer through an internet gateway.

The following attributes are supported by only Application Load Balancers:

  • idle_timeout.timeout_seconds - The idle timeout value, in seconds. The valid range is 1-4000 seconds. The default is 60 seconds.
  • routing.http.desync_mitigation_mode - Determines how the load balancer handles requests that might pose a security risk to your application. The possible values are monitor , defensive , and strictest . The default is defensive .
  • routing.http.drop_invalid_header_fields.enabled - Indicates whether HTTP headers with invalid header fields are removed by the load balancer (true ) or routed to targets (false ). The default is false .
  • routing.http.preserve_host_header.enabled - Indicates whether the Application Load Balancer should preserve the Host header in the HTTP request and send it to the target without any change. The possible values are true and false . The default is false .
  • routing.http.x_amzn_tls_version_and_cipher_suite.enabled - Indicates whether the two headers (x-amzn-tls-version and x-amzn-tls-cipher-suite ), which contain information about the negotiated TLS version and cipher suite, are added to the client request before sending it to the target. The x-amzn-tls-version header has information about the TLS protocol version negotiated with the client, and the x-amzn-tls-cipher-suite header has information about the cipher suite negotiated with the client. Both headers are in OpenSSL format. The possible values for the attribute are true and false . The default is false .
  • routing.http.xff_client_port.enabled - Indicates whether the X-Forwarded-For header should preserve the source port that the client used to connect to the load balancer. The possible values are true and false . The default is false .
  • routing.http.xff_header_processing.mode - Enables you to modify, preserve, or remove the X-Forwarded-For header in the HTTP request before the Application Load Balancer sends the request to the target. The possible values are append , preserve , and remove . The default is append .
    • If the value is append , the Application Load Balancer adds the client IP address (of the last hop) to the X-Forwarded-For header in the HTTP request before it sends it to targets.
    • If the value is preserve the Application Load Balancer preserves the X-Forwarded-For header in the HTTP request, and sends it to targets without any change.
    • If the value is remove , the Application Load Balancer removes the X-Forwarded-For header in the HTTP request before it sends it to targets.
  • routing.http2.enabled - Indicates whether HTTP/2 is enabled. The possible values are true and false . The default is true . Elastic Load Balancing requires that message header names contain only alphanumeric characters and hyphens.
  • waf.fail_open.enabled - Indicates whether to allow a WAF-enabled load balancer to route requests to targets if it is unable to forward the request to Amazon Web Services WAF. The possible values are true and false . The default is false .

The following attribute is supported by Network Load Balancers and Gateway Load Balancers:

  • load_balancing.cross_zone.enabled - Indicates whether cross-zone load balancing is enabled. The possible values are true and false . The default is false .

Value -> (string)

The value of the attribute.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "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

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 enable deletion protection

This example enables deletion protection for the specified load balancer.

Command:

aws elbv2 modify-load-balancer-attributes --load-balancer-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:loadbalancer/app/my-load-balancer/50dc6c495c0c9188 --attributes Key=deletion_protection.enabled,Value=true

Output:

{
  "Attributes": [
      {
          "Value": "true",
          "Key": "deletion_protection.enabled"
      },
      {
          "Value": "false",
          "Key": "access_logs.s3.enabled"
      },
      {
          "Value": "60",
          "Key": "idle_timeout.timeout_seconds"

This example changes the idle timeout value for the specified load balancer.

Command:

aws elbv2 modify-load-balancer-attributes --load-balancer-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:loadbalancer/app/my-load-balancer/50dc6c495c0c9188 --attributes Key=idle_timeout.timeout_seconds,Value=30

      },
      {
          "Value": "60",
          "Key": "idle_timeout.timeout_seconds"
      },
      {
