update-accelerator

Description

Update an accelerator.

Warning

Global Accelerator is a global service that supports endpoints in multiple Amazon Web Services Regions but you must specify the US West (Oregon) Region to create, update, or otherwise work with accelerators. That is, for example, specify --region us-west-2 on AWS CLI commands.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  update-accelerator
--accelerator-arn <value>
[--name <value>]
[--ip-address-type <value>]
[--enabled | --no-enabled]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--accelerator-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the accelerator to update.

--name (string)

The name of the accelerator. The name can have a maximum of 64 characters, must contain only alphanumeric characters, periods (.), or hyphens (-), and must not begin or end with a hyphen or period.

--ip-address-type (string)

The IP address type that an accelerator supports. For a standard accelerator, the value can be IPV4 or DUAL_STACK.

Possible values:

  • IPV4

  • DUAL_STACK

--enabled | --no-enabled (boolean)

Indicates whether an accelerator is enabled. The value is true or false. The default value is true.

If the value is set to true, the accelerator cannot be deleted. If set to false, the accelerator can be deleted.

--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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

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 update an accelerator

The following update-accelerator example modifies an accelerator to change the accelerator name to ExampleAcceleratorNew. You must specify the US-West-2 (Oregon) Region to create or update accelerators.

aws globalaccelerator update-accelerator \
    --accelerator-arn arn:aws:globalaccelerator::123456789012:accelerator/1234abcd-abcd-1234-abcd-1234abcdefgh \
    --name ExampleAcceleratorNew

Output:

{
    "Accelerator": {
        "AcceleratorArn": "arn:aws:globalaccelerator::123456789012:accelerator/1234abcd-abcd-1234-abcd-1234abcdefgh",
        "IpAddressType": "IPV4",
        "Name": "ExampleAcceleratorNew",
        "Enabled": true,
        "Status": "IN_PROGRESS",
        "IpSets": [
            {
                "IpAddresses": [
                    "192.0.2.250",
                    "198.51.100.52"
                ],
                "IpFamily": "IPv4"
            }
        ],
        "DnsName":"a1234567890abcdef.awsglobalaccelerator.com",
        "CreatedTime": 1232394847,
        "LastModifiedTime": 1232395654
    }
}

Output

Accelerator -> (structure)

Information about the updated accelerator.

AcceleratorArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the accelerator.

Name -> (string)

The name of the accelerator. The name must contain only alphanumeric characters or hyphens (-), and must not begin or end with a hyphen.

IpAddressType -> (string)

The IP address type that an accelerator supports. For a standard accelerator, the value can be IPV4 or DUAL_STACK.

Enabled -> (boolean)

Indicates whether the accelerator is enabled. The value is true or false. The default value is true.

If the value is set to true, the accelerator cannot be deleted. If set to false, accelerator can be deleted.

IpSets -> (list)

The static IP addresses that Global Accelerator associates with the accelerator.

(structure)

A complex type for the set of IP addresses for an accelerator.

IpFamily -> (string)

IpFamily is deprecated and has been replaced by IpAddressFamily.

IpAddresses -> (list)

The array of IP addresses in the IP address set. An IP address set can have a maximum of two IP addresses.

(string)

IpAddressFamily -> (string)

The types of IP addresses included in this IP set.

DnsName -> (string)

The Domain Name System (DNS) name that Global Accelerator creates that points to an accelerator’s static IPv4 addresses.

The naming convention for the DNS name for an accelerator is the following: A lowercase letter a, followed by a 16-bit random hex string, followed by .awsglobalaccelerator.com. For example: a1234567890abcdef.awsglobalaccelerator.com.

If you have a dual-stack accelerator, you also have a second DNS name, DualStackDnsName, that points to both the A record and the AAAA record for all four static addresses for the accelerator (two IPv4 addresses and two IPv6 addresses).

For more information about the default DNS name, see Support for DNS Addressing in Global Accelerator in the Global Accelerator Developer Guide .

Status -> (string)

Describes the deployment status of the accelerator.

CreatedTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the accelerator was created.

LastModifiedTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the accelerator was last modified.

DualStackDnsName -> (string)

The Domain Name System (DNS) name that Global Accelerator creates that points to a dual-stack accelerator’s four static IP addresses: two IPv4 addresses and two IPv6 addresses.

The naming convention for the dual-stack DNS name is the following: A lowercase letter a, followed by a 16-bit random hex string, followed by .dualstack.awsglobalaccelerator.com. For example: a1234567890abcdef.dualstack.awsglobalaccelerator.com.

Note: Global Accelerator also assigns a default DNS name, DnsName, to your accelerator that points just to the static IPv4 addresses.

For more information, see Support for DNS Addressing in Global Accelerator in the Global Accelerator Developer Guide .

Events -> (list)

A history of changes that you make to an accelerator in Global Accelerator.

(structure)

A complex type that contains a Timestamp value and Message for changes that you make to an accelerator in Global Accelerator. Messages stored here provide progress or error information when you update an accelerator from IPv4 to dual-stack, or from dual-stack to IPv4. Global Accelerator stores a maximum of ten event messages.

Message -> (string)

A string that contains an Event message describing changes or errors when you update an accelerator in Global Accelerator from IPv4 to dual-stack, or dual-stack to IPv4.

Timestamp -> (timestamp)

A timestamp for when you update an accelerator in Global Accelerator from IPv4 to dual-stack, or dual-stack to IPv4.
