create-load-balancer-tls-certificate

Description

Creates an SSL/TLS certificate for an Amazon Lightsail load balancer.

TLS is just an updated, more secure version of Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

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

Options

--load-balancer-name (string)

The load balancer name where you want to create the SSL/TLS certificate.

--certificate-name (string)

The SSL/TLS certificate name.

You can have up to 10 certificates in your account at one time. Each Lightsail load balancer can have up to 2 certificates associated with it at one time. There is also an overall limit to the number of certificates that can be issue in a 365-day period. For more information, see Limits .

--certificate-domain-name (string)

The domain name (e.g., example.com ) for your SSL/TLS certificate.

--certificate-alternative-names (list)

An array of strings listing alternative domains and subdomains for your SSL/TLS certificate. Lightsail will de-dupe the names for you. You can have a maximum of 9 alternative names (in addition to the 1 primary domain). We do not support wildcards (e.g., *.example.com ).

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--tags (list)

The tag keys and optional values to add to the resource during create.

Use the TagResource action to tag a resource after it's created.

(structure)

Describes a tag key and optional value assigned to an Amazon Lightsail resource.

For more information about tags in Lightsail, see the Amazon Lightsail Developer Guide .

key -> (string)

The key of the tag.

Constraints: Tag keys accept a maximum of 128 letters, numbers, spaces in UTF-8, or the following characters: + - = . _ : / @

value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

Constraints: Tag values accept a maximum of 256 letters, numbers, spaces in UTF-8, or the following characters: + - = . _ : / @

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.

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 TLS certificate for a load balancer

The following create-load-balancer-tls-certificate example creates a TLS certificate that is attached to the specified load balancer. The certificate created applies to the specified domains. Note: Only two certificates can be created for a load balancer.

aws lightsail create-load-balancer-tls-certificate \
    --certificate-alternative-names abc.example.com \
    --certificate-domain-name example.com \
    --certificate-name MySecondCertificate \
    --load-balancer-name MyFirstLoadBalancer

Output:
