create-domain-entry

Description

Creates one of the following domain name system (DNS) records in a domain DNS zone: Address (A), canonical name (CNAME), mail exchanger (MX), name server (NS), start of authority (SOA), service locator (SRV), or text (TXT).

The create domain entry operation supports tag-based access control via resource tags applied to the resource identified by domain name . For more information, see the Amazon Lightsail Developer Guide .

Options

--domain-name (string)

The domain name (e.g., example.com ) for which you want to create the domain entry.

--domain-entry (structure)

An array of key-value pairs containing information about the domain entry request.

id -> (string)

The ID of the domain recordset entry.

name -> (string)

The name of the domain.

target -> (string)

The target IP address (e.g., 192.0.2.0 ), or AWS name server (e.g., ns-111.awsdns-22.com. ).

For Lightsail load balancers, the value looks like ab1234c56789c6b86aba6fb203d443bc-123456789.us-east-2.elb.amazonaws.com . For Lightsail distributions, the value looks like exampled1182ne.cloudfront.net . For Lightsail container services, the value looks like container-service-1.example23scljs.us-west-2.cs.amazonlightsail.com . Be sure to also set isAlias to true when setting up an A record for a Lightsail load balancer, distribution, or container service.

isAlias -> (boolean)

When true , specifies whether the domain entry is an alias used by the Lightsail load balancer. You can include an alias (A type) record in your request, which points to a load balancer DNS name and routes traffic to your load balancer.

type -> (string)

The type of domain entry, such as address for IPv4 (A), address for IPv6 (AAAA), canonical name (CNAME), mail exchanger (MX), name server (NS), start of authority (SOA), service locator (SRV), or text (TXT).

The following domain entry types can be used:

  • A
  • AAAA
  • CNAME
  • MX
  • NS
  • SOA
  • SRV
  • TXT

options -> (map)

(Deprecated) The options for the domain entry.

Note

In releases prior to November 29, 2017, this parameter was not included in the API response. It is now deprecated.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

id=string,name=string,target=string,isAlias=boolean,type=string,options={KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "id": "string",
  "name": "string",
  "target": "string",
  "isAlias": true|false,
  "type": "string",
  "options": {"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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

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 domain entry (DNS record)

The following create-domain-entry example creates a DNS record (A) for the apex of the specified domain that points to an instance's IP address.

Note: Lightsail's domain-related API operations are available in only the us-east-1 Region. If your CLI profile is configured to use a different Region, you must include the --region us-east-1 parameter or the command fails.

aws lightsail create-domain-entry \
    --region us-east-1 \
    --domain-name example.com \
    --domain-entry name=example.com,type=A,target=192.0.2.0
