register-targets

Description

Registers the specified targets with the specified target group.

If the target is an EC2 instance, it must be in the running state when you register it.

By default, the load balancer routes requests to registered targets using the protocol and port for the target group. Alternatively, you can override the port for a target when you register it. You can register each EC2 instance or IP address with the same target group multiple times using different ports.

With a Network Load Balancer, you cannot register instances by instance ID if they have the following instance types: C1, CC1, CC2, CG1, CG2, CR1, CS1, G1, G2, HI1, HS1, M1, M2, M3, and T1. You can register instances of these types by IP address.

Options

--target-group-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the target group.

--targets (list)

The targets.

(structure)

Information about a target.

Id -> (string)

The ID of the target. If the target type of the target group is instance , specify an instance ID. If the target type is ip , specify an IP address. If the target type is lambda , specify the ARN of the Lambda function. If the target type is alb , specify the ARN of the Application Load Balancer target.

Port -> (integer)

The port on which the target is listening. If the target group protocol is GENEVE, the supported port is 6081. If the target type is alb , the targeted Application Load Balancer must have at least one listener whose port matches the target group port. Not used if the target is a Lambda function.

AvailabilityZone -> (string)

An Availability Zone or all . This determines whether the target receives traffic from the load balancer nodes in the specified Availability Zone or from all enabled Availability Zones for the load balancer.

For Application Load Balancer target groups, the specified Availability Zone value is only applicable when cross-zone load balancing is off. Otherwise the parameter is ignored and treated as all .

This parameter is not supported if the target type of the target group is instance or alb .

If the target type is ip and the IP address is in a subnet of the VPC for the target group, the Availability Zone is automatically detected and this parameter is optional. If the IP address is outside the VPC, this parameter is required.

For Application Load Balancer target groups with cross-zone load balancing off, if the target type is ip and the IP address is outside of the VPC for the target group, this should be an Availability Zone inside the VPC for the target group.

If the target type is lambda , this parameter is optional and the only supported value is all .

Shorthand Syntax:

Id=string,Port=integer,AvailabilityZone=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Id": "string",
    "Port": integer,
    "AvailabilityZone": "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 .

Example 1: To register targets with a target group by instance ID

The following register-targets example registers the specified instances with a target group. The target group must have a target type of instance.

aws elbv2 register-targets \
    --target-group-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-targets/73e2d6bc24d8a067 \
    --targets Id=i-1234567890abcdef0 Id=i-0abcdef1234567890

Example 2: To register targets with a target group using port overrides

The following register-targets example registers the specified instance with a target group using multiple ports. This enables you to register containers on the same instance as targets in the target group.

aws elbv2 register-targets \
    --target-group-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-internal-targets/3bb63f11dfb0faf9 \
    --targets Id=i-0598c7d356eba48d7,Port=80 Id=i-0598c7d356eba48d7,Port=766

Example 3: To register targets with a target group by IP address

The following register-targets example registers the specified IP addresses with a target group. The target group must have a target type of ip.

aws elbv2 register-targets \
    --target-group-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-tcp-ip-targets/8518e899d173178f \
    --targets Id=10.0.1.15 Id=10.0.1.23

Example 4: To register a Lambda function as a target

The following register-targets example registers the specified IP addresses with a target group. The target group must have a target type of lambda. You must grant Elastic Load Balancing permission to invoke the Lambda function.

aws elbv2 register-targets \
    --target-group-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:targetgroup/my-tcp-ip-targets/8518e899d173178f \
    --targets Id=arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123456789012:function:my-function
