create-target-group

Description

Creates a target group. A target group is a collection of targets, or compute resources, that run your application or service. A target group can only be used by a single service.

For more information, see Target groups in the Amazon VPC Lattice User Guide .

Options

--client-token (string)

A unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. If you retry a request that completed successfully using the same client token and parameters, the retry succeeds without performing any actions. If the parameters aren't identical, the retry fails.

--config (structure)

The target group configuration. If type is set to LAMBDA , this parameter doesn't apply.

healthCheck -> (structure)

The health check configuration.

enabled -> (boolean)

Indicates whether health checking is enabled.

healthCheckIntervalSeconds -> (integer)

The approximate amount of time, in seconds, between health checks of an individual target. The range is 5–300 seconds. The default is 30 seconds.

healthCheckTimeoutSeconds -> (integer)

The amount of time, in seconds, to wait before reporting a target as unhealthy. The range is 1–120 seconds. The default is 5 seconds.

healthyThresholdCount -> (integer)

The number of consecutive successful health checks required before considering an unhealthy target healthy. The range is 2–10. The default is 5.

matcher -> (tagged union structure)

The codes to use when checking for a successful response from a target. These are called Success codes in the console.

Note

This is a Tagged Union structure. Only one of the following top level keys can be set: httpCode.

httpCode -> (string)

The HTTP code to use when checking for a successful response from a target.

path -> (string)

The destination for health checks on the targets. If the protocol version is HTTP/1.1 or HTTP/2 , specify a valid URI (for example, /path?query ). The default path is / . Health checks are not supported if the protocol version is gRPC , however, you can choose HTTP/1.1 or HTTP/2 and specify a valid URI.

port -> (integer)

The port used when performing health checks on targets. The default setting is the port that a target receives traffic on.

protocol -> (string)

The protocol used when performing health checks on targets. The possible protocols are HTTP and HTTPS . The default is HTTP .

protocolVersion -> (string)

The protocol version used when performing health checks on targets. The possible protocol versions are HTTP1 and HTTP2 .

unhealthyThresholdCount -> (integer)

The number of consecutive failed health checks required before considering a target unhealthy. The range is 2–10. The default is 2.

ipAddressType -> (string)

The type of IP address used for the target group. The possible values are ipv4 and ipv6 . This is an optional parameter. If not specified, the IP address type defaults to ipv4 .

lambdaEventStructureVersion -> (string)

Lambda event structure version

port -> (integer)

The port on which the targets are listening. For HTTP, the default is 80 . For HTTPS, the default is 443

protocol -> (string)

The protocol to use for routing traffic to the targets. Default is the protocol of a target group.

protocolVersion -> (string)

The protocol version. Default value is HTTP1 .

vpcIdentifier -> (string)

The ID of the VPC.

--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)

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)
