AWS Global Accelerator
API Reference (API Version 2018-08-08)

CreateEndpointGroup

Create an endpoint group for the specified listener. An endpoint group is a collection of endpoints in one AWS Region. To see an AWS CLI example of creating an endpoint group, scroll down to Example.

Request Syntax

{ "EndpointConfigurations": [ { "EndpointId": "string", "Weight": number } ], "EndpointGroupRegion": "string", "HealthCheckIntervalSeconds": number, "HealthCheckPath": "string", "HealthCheckPort": number, "HealthCheckProtocol": "string", "IdempotencyToken": "string", "ListenerArn": "string", "ThresholdCount": number, "TrafficDialPercentage": number }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

EndpointConfigurations

The list of endpoint objects.

Type: Array of EndpointConfiguration objects

Array Members: Minimum number of 0 items. Maximum number of 10 items.

Required: No

EndpointGroupRegion

The name of the AWS Region where the endpoint group is located. A listener can have only one endpoint group in a specific Region.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 255.

Required: Yes

HealthCheckIntervalSeconds

The time—10 seconds or 30 seconds—between each health check for an endpoint. The default value is 30.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 10. Maximum value of 30.

Required: No

HealthCheckPath

If the protocol is HTTP/S, then this specifies the path that is the destination for health check targets. The default value is slash (/).

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 255.

Required: No

HealthCheckPort

The port that AWS Global Accelerator uses to check the health of endpoints that are part of this endpoint group. The default port is the listener port that this endpoint group is associated with. If listener port is a list of ports, Global Accelerator uses the first port in the list.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 65535.

Required: No

HealthCheckProtocol

The protocol that AWS Global Accelerator uses to check the health of endpoints that are part of this endpoint group. The default value is TCP.

Type: String

Valid Values: TCP | HTTP | HTTPS

Required: No

IdempotencyToken

A unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency—that is, the uniqueness—of the request.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 255.

Required: Yes

ListenerArn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the listener.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 255.

Required: Yes

ThresholdCount

The number of consecutive health checks required to set the state of a healthy endpoint to unhealthy, or to set an unhealthy endpoint to healthy. The default value is 3.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 10.

Required: No

TrafficDialPercentage

The percentage of traffic to send to an AWS Region. Additional traffic is distributed to other endpoint groups for this listener.

Use this action to increase (dial up) or decrease (dial down) traffic to a specific Region. The percentage is applied to the traffic that would otherwise have been routed to the Region based on optimal routing.

The default value is 100.

Type: Float

Valid Range: Minimum value of 0. Maximum value of 100.

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "EndpointGroup": { "EndpointDescriptions": [ { "EndpointId": "string", "HealthReason": "string", "HealthState": "string", "Weight": number } ], "EndpointGroupArn": "string", "EndpointGroupRegion": "string", "HealthCheckIntervalSeconds": number, "HealthCheckPath": "string", "HealthCheckPort": number, "HealthCheckProtocol": "string", "ThresholdCount": number, "TrafficDialPercentage": number } }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

EndpointGroup

The information about the endpoint group that was created.

Type: EndpointGroup object
