Description

Note

You must create the Elastic Load Balancing instance separately, by using the Elastic Load Balancing console, API, or CLI. For more information, see Elastic Load Balancing Developer Guide .

Required Permissions : To use this action, an IAM user must have a Manage permissions level for the stack, or an attached policy that explicitly grants permissions. For more information on user permissions, see Managing User Permissions .

Synopsis

  attach-elastic-load-balancer
--elastic-load-balancer-name <value>
--layer-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--elastic-load-balancer-name (string)

The Elastic Load Balancing instance's name.

--layer-id (string)

The ID of the layer to which the Elastic Load Balancing instance is to be attached.

--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.
