create-customer-gateway

Description

Provides information to Amazon Web Services about your customer gateway device. The customer gateway device is the appliance at your end of the VPN connection. You must provide the IP address of the customer gateway device’s external interface. The IP address must be static and can be behind a device performing network address translation (NAT).

For devices that use Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), you can also provide the device’s BGP Autonomous System Number (ASN). You can use an existing ASN assigned to your network. If you don’t have an ASN already, you can use a private ASN. For more information, see Customer gateway options for your Site-to-Site VPN connection in the Amazon Web Services Site-to-Site VPN User Guide .

To create more than one customer gateway with the same VPN type, IP address, and BGP ASN, specify a unique device name for each customer gateway. An identical request returns information about the existing customer gateway; it doesn’t create a new customer gateway.

Options

--bgp-asn (integer)

For devices that support BGP, the customer gateway’s BGP ASN.

Default: 65000

--public-ip (string)

This member has been deprecated. The Internet-routable IP address for the customer gateway’s outside interface. The address must be static.

--certificate-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the customer gateway certificate.

--type (string)

The type of VPN connection that this customer gateway supports (ipsec.1 ).

Possible values:

  • ipsec.1

--tag-specifications (list)

The tags to apply to the customer gateway.

(structure)

The tags to apply to a resource when the resource is being created.

Note

The Valid Values lists all the resource types that can be tagged. However, the action you’re using might not support tagging all of these resource types. If you try to tag a resource type that is unsupported for the action you’re using, you’ll get an error.

ResourceType -> (string)

The type of resource to tag on creation.

Tags -> (list)

The tags to apply to the resource.

(structure)

Describes a tag.

Key -> (string)

The key of the tag.

Constraints: Tag keys are case-sensitive and accept a maximum of 127 Unicode characters. May not begin with aws: .

Value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

Constraints: Tag values are case-sensitive and accept a maximum of 256 Unicode characters.

Shorthand Syntax:

]

--device-name (string)

A name for the customer gateway device.

Length Constraints: Up to 255 characters.

--ip-address (string)

IPv4 address for the customer gateway device’s outside interface. The address must be static.

--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 .

--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.

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 .

To create a customer gateway

This example creates a customer gateway with the specified IP address for its outside interface.

{
    "CustomerGateway": {
        "CustomerGatewayId": "cgw-0e11f167",

        "State": "available",
        "Type": "ipsec.1",
        "BgpAsn": "65534"
    }
