[ aws . lightsail ]



Returns information about all load balancers in an account.

If you are describing a long list of load balancers, you can paginate the output to make the list more manageable. You can use the pageToken and nextPageToken values to retrieve the next items in the list.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--page-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--page-token (string)

A token used for paginating the results from your GetLoadBalancers request.

--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.

loadBalancers -> (list)

An array of LoadBalancer objects describing your load balancers.


Describes the Lightsail load balancer.

name -> (string)

The name of the load balancer (e.g., my-load-balancer ).

arn -> (string)

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

supportCode -> (string)

The support code. Include this code in your email to support when you have questions about your Lightsail load balancer. This code enables our support team to look up your Lightsail information more easily.

createdAt -> (timestamp)

The date when your load balancer was created.

location -> (structure)

The AWS Region where your load balancer was created (e.g., us-east-2a ). Lightsail automatically creates your load balancer across Availability Zones.

availabilityZone -> (string)

The Availability Zone. Follows the format us-east-2a (case-sensitive).

regionName -> (string)

The AWS Region name.

resourceType -> (string)

The resource type (e.g., LoadBalancer .

dnsName -> (string)

The DNS name of your Lightsail load balancer.

state -> (string)

The status of your load balancer. Valid values are below.

protocol -> (string)

The protocol you have enabled for your load balancer. Valid values are below.

You can't just have HTTP_HTTPS , but you can have just HTTP .

publicPorts -> (list)

An array of public port settings for your load balancer. For HTTP, use port 80. For HTTPS, use port 443.


healthCheckPath -> (string)

The path you specified to perform your health checks. If no path is specified, the load balancer tries to make a request to the default (root) page.

instancePort -> (integer)

The port where the load balancer will direct traffic to your Lightsail instances. For HTTP traffic, it's port 80. For HTTPS traffic, it's port 443.

instanceHealthSummary -> (list)

An array of InstanceHealthSummary objects describing the health of the load balancer.


Describes information about the health of the instance.

instanceName -> (string)

The name of the Lightsail instance for which you are requesting health check data.

instanceHealth -> (string)

Describes the overall instance health. Valid values are below.

instanceHealthReason -> (string)

More information about the instance health. If the instanceHealth is healthy , then an instanceHealthReason value is not provided.

If ** instanceHealth ** is initial , the ** instanceHealthReason ** value can be one of the following:

  • **Lb.RegistrationInProgress ** - The target instance is in the process of being registered with the load balancer.
  • **Lb.InitialHealthChecking ** - The Lightsail load balancer is still sending the target instance the minimum number of health checks required to determine its health status.

If ** instanceHealth ** is unhealthy , the ** instanceHealthReason ** value can be one of the following:

  • **Instance.ResponseCodeMismatch ** - The health checks did not return an expected HTTP code.
  • **Instance.Timeout ** - The health check requests timed out.
  • **Instance.FailedHealthChecks ** - The health checks failed because the connection to the target instance timed out, the target instance response was malformed, or the target instance failed the health check for an unknown reason.
  • **Lb.InternalError ** - The health checks failed due to an internal error.

If ** instanceHealth ** is unused , the ** instanceHealthReason ** value can be one of the following:

  • **Instance.NotRegistered ** - The target instance is not registered with the target group.
  • **Instance.NotInUse ** - The target group is not used by any load balancer, or the target instance is in an Availability Zone that is not enabled for its load balancer.
  • **Instance.IpUnusable ** - The target IP address is reserved for use by a Lightsail load balancer.
  • **Instance.InvalidState ** - The target is in the stopped or terminated state.

If ** instanceHealth ** is draining , the ** instanceHealthReason ** value can be one of the following:

  • **Instance.DeregistrationInProgress ** - The target instance is in the process of being deregistered and the deregistration delay period has not expired.

Provides a summary of SSL/TLS certificate metadata.

name -> (string)

The name of the SSL/TLS certificate.

isAttached -> (boolean)

When true , the SSL/TLS certificate is attached to the Lightsail load balancer.

configurationOptions -> (map)

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

nextPageToken -> (string)

A token used for advancing to the next page of results from your GetLoadBalancers request.
