See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--load-balancer-arn <value>
--ip-address-type <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--load-balancer-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the load balancer.

--ip-address-type (string)

The IP address type. The possible values are ipv4 (for IPv4 addresses) and dualstack (for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses). Internal load balancers must use ipv4 . Network Load Balancers must use ipv4 .

Possible values:

  • ipv4

  • dualstack

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To set the address type of a load balancer

This example sets the address type of the specified load balancer to dualstack. The load balancer must be an Internet-facing load balancer and its subnets must have associated IPv6 CIDR blocks.


aws elbv2 set-ip-address-type --load-balancer-arn arn:aws:elasticloadbalancing:us-west-2:123456789012:loadbalancer/app/my-load-balancer/50dc6c495c0c9188 --ip-address-type dualstack


    "IpAddressType": "dualstack"


IpAddressType -> (string)

The IP address type.
