--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--vpc-endpoint-id (string)

The ID of the endpoint.

--reset-policy | --no-reset-policy (boolean)

(Gateway endpoint) Specify true to reset the policy document to the default policy. The default policy allows full access to the service.

--policy-document (string)

(Interface and gateway endpoints) A policy to attach to the endpoint that controls access to the service. The policy must be in valid JSON format.

--add-route-table-ids (list)

(Gateway endpoint) The IDs of the route tables to associate with the endpoint.



"string" "string" ...

--remove-route-table-ids (list)

(Gateway endpoint) The IDs of the route tables to disassociate from the endpoint.



"string" "string" ...

--add-subnet-ids (list)

(Interface and Gateway Load Balancer endpoints) The IDs of the subnets in which to serve the endpoint. For a Gateway Load Balancer endpoint, you can specify only one subnet.



"string" "string" ...

--remove-subnet-ids (list)

(Interface endpoint) The IDs of the subnets from which to remove the endpoint.



"string" "string" ...

--add-security-group-ids (list)

(Interface endpoint) The IDs of the security groups to associate with the network interface.



"string" "string" ...

--remove-security-group-ids (list)

(Interface endpoint) The IDs of the security groups to disassociate from the network interface.



"string" "string" ...

--ip-address-type (string)

The IP address type for the endpoint.

Possible values:

  • ipv4
  • dualstack
  • ipv6

--dns-options (structure)

The DNS options for the endpoint.

DnsRecordIpType -> (string)

The DNS records created for the endpoint.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "DnsRecordIpType": "ipv4"|"dualstack"|"ipv6"|"service-defined"

--private-dns-enabled | --no-private-dns-enabled (boolean)

(Interface endpoint) Indicates whether a private hosted zone is associated with 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)

--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.



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 .

To modify a gateway endpoint

This example modifies gateway endpoint vpce-1a2b3c4d by associating route table rtb-aaa222bb with the endpoint, and resetting the policy document.


aws ec2 modify-vpc-endpoint --vpc-endpoint-id vpce-1a2b3c4d --add-route-table-ids rtb-aaa222bb --reset-policy


  "Return": true

To modify an interface endpoint

This example modifies interface endpoint vpce-0fe5b17a0707d6fa5 by adding subnet subnet-d6fcaa8d to the endpoint.


aws ec2 modify-vpc-endpoint --vpc-endpoint-id vpce-0fe5b17a0707d6fa5 --add-subnet-id subnet-d6fcaa8d


  "Return": true


Return -> (boolean)

Returns true if the request succeeds; otherwise, it returns an error.
