Adding, Editing, or Removing an Endpoint Group

You work with endpoint groups on the AWS Global Accelerator console or by using an API operation. You can add or remove endpoints from an endpoint group at any time.

This section explains how to work with endpoint groups on the AWS Global Accelerator console. If you want to use API operations with Global Accelerator, see the AWS Global Accelerator API Reference.

To add an endpoint group

  1. Open the Global Accelerator console at https://us-west-2.console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/v2/home?region=us-west-2#Global Accelerator:.

  2. On the accelerators page, choose an accelerator.

  3. In the Listeners section, for Listener ID, choose the ID of the listener that you want to add an endpoint group to.

  4. Choose Add endpoint group.

  5. In the section for a listener, specify a Region for the endpoint group by choosing one from the dropdown list.

  6. Optionally, for Traffic dial, enter a number from 0 to 100 to set a percentage of traffic for this endpoint group. The percentage is applied only to the traffic that is already directed to this endpoint group, not all listener traffic. By default, the traffic dial is set to 100.

  7. Optionally, to specify custom health check values to be applied to EC2 instance and Elastic IP address endpoints, choose Configure health checks. For more information, see Health Check Options.
