[ aws . route53resolver ]



Adds IP addresses to an inbound or an outbound Resolver endpoint. If you want to add more than one IP address, submit one AssociateResolverEndpointIpAddress request for each IP address.

To remove an IP address from an endpoint, see DisassociateResolverEndpointIpAddress .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--resolver-endpoint-id <value>
--ip-address <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resolver-endpoint-id (string)

The ID of the Resolver endpoint that you want to associate IP addresses with.

--ip-address (structure)

Either the IPv4 address that you want to add to a Resolver endpoint or a subnet ID. If you specify a subnet ID, Resolver chooses an IP address for you from the available IPs in the specified subnet.

IpId -> (string)

Only when removing an IP address from a Resolver endpoint : The ID of the IP address that you want to remove. To get this ID, use GetResolverEndpoint .

SubnetId -> (string)

The ID of the subnet that includes the IP address that you want to update. To get this ID, use GetResolverEndpoint .

Ip -> (string)

The new IP address.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "IpId": "string",
  "SubnetId": "string",
  "Ip": "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.


To associate another IP address with a Resolver endpoint

The following associate-resolver-endpoint-ip-address example associates another IP address with an inbound Resolver endpoint. If you specify only a subnet ID and omit the IP address from the --ip-address parameter, Resolver chooses an IP address for you from among the available IP addresses in the specified subnet.

aws route53resolver associate-resolver-endpoint-ip-address \
    --resolver-endpoint-id rslvr-in-497098ad5example \


    "ResolverEndpoint": {
        "Id": "rslvr-in-497098ad5example",
        "CreatorRequestId": "AWSConsole.25.0123456789",
        "Arn": "arn:aws:route53resolver:us-west-2:111122223333:resolver-endpoint/rslvr-in-497098ad5example",
        "Name": "my-inbound-endpoint",
        "SecurityGroupIds": [
        "Direction": "INBOUND",
        "IpAddressCount": 3,
        "HostVPCId": "vpc-304bexam",
        "Status": "UPDATING",
        "StatusMessage": "Updating the Resolver Endpoint",
        "CreationTime": "2020-01-02T23:25:45.538Z",
        "ModificationTime": "2020-01-02T23:25:45.538Z"

For more information, see Values That You Specify When You Create or Edit Inbound Endpoints in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.


ResolverEndpoint -> (structure)

The response to an AssociateResolverEndpointIpAddress request.

Id -> (string)

The ID of the Resolver endpoint.

CreatorRequestId -> (string)

A unique string that identifies the request that created the Resolver endpoint. The CreatorRequestId allows failed requests to be retried without the risk of running the operation twice.

Arn -> (string)

The ARN (Amazon Resource Name) for the Resolver endpoint.

Name -> (string)

The name that you assigned to the Resolver endpoint when you submitted a CreateResolverEndpoint request.

SecurityGroupIds -> (list)

The ID of one or more security groups that control access to this VPC. The security group must include one or more inbound rules (for inbound endpoints) or outbound rules (for outbound endpoints). Inbound and outbound rules must allow TCP and UDP access. For inbound access, open port 53. For outbound access, open the port that you're using for DNS queries on your network.


Direction -> (string)

Indicates whether the Resolver endpoint allows inbound or outbound DNS queries:

  • INBOUND : allows DNS queries to your VPC from your network
  • OUTBOUND : allows DNS queries from your VPC to your network

IpAddressCount -> (integer)

The number of IP addresses that the Resolver endpoint can use for DNS queries.

HostVPCId -> (string)

The ID of the VPC that you want to create the Resolver endpoint in.

Status -> (string)

A code that specifies the current status of the Resolver endpoint. Valid values include the following:

  • CREATING : Resolver is creating and configuring one or more Amazon VPC network interfaces for this endpoint.
  • OPERATIONAL : The Amazon VPC network interfaces for this endpoint are correctly configured and able to pass inbound or outbound DNS queries between your network and Resolver.
  • UPDATING : Resolver is associating or disassociating one or more network interfaces with this endpoint.
  • AUTO_RECOVERING : Resolver is trying to recover one or more of the network interfaces that are associated with this endpoint. During the recovery process, the endpoint functions with limited capacity because of the limit on the number of DNS queries per IP address (per network interface). For the current limit, see Limits on Route 53 Resolver .
  • ACTION_NEEDED : This endpoint is unhealthy, and Resolver can't automatically recover it. To resolve the problem, we recommend that you check each IP address that you associated with the endpoint. For each IP address that isn't available, add another IP address and then delete the IP address that isn't available. (An endpoint must always include at least two IP addresses.) A status of ACTION_NEEDED can have a variety of causes. Here are two common causes:
    • One or more of the network interfaces that are associated with the endpoint were deleted using Amazon VPC.
    • The network interface couldn't be created for some reason that's outside the control of Resolver.
  • DELETING : Resolver is deleting this endpoint and the associated network interfaces.

StatusMessage -> (string)

A detailed description of the status of the Resolver endpoint.

CreationTime -> (string)

The date and time that the endpoint was created, in Unix time format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

ModificationTime -> (string)

The date and time that the endpoint was last modified, in Unix time format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
