[ aws . lightsail ]



Sets the IP address type for an Amazon Lightsail resource.

Use this action to enable dual-stack for a resource, which enables IPv4 and IPv6 for the specified resource. Alternately, you can use this action to disable dual-stack, and enable IPv4 only.

--resource-type (string)

The resource type.

The resource values are Distribution , Instance , and LoadBalancer .


Distribution-related APIs are available only in the N. Virginia (us-east-1 ) Amazon Web Services Region. Set your Amazon Web Services Region configuration to us-east-1 to create, view, or edit distributions.

Possible values:

  • ContainerService
  • Instance
  • StaticIp
  • KeyPair
  • InstanceSnapshot
  • Domain
  • PeeredVpc
  • LoadBalancer
  • LoadBalancerTlsCertificate
  • Disk
  • DiskSnapshot
  • RelationalDatabase
  • RelationalDatabaseSnapshot
  • ExportSnapshotRecord
  • CloudFormationStackRecord
  • Alarm
  • ContactMethod
  • Distribution
  • Certificate
  • Bucket

--resource-name (string)

The name of the resource for which to set the IP address type.

--ip-address-type (string)

The IP address type to set for the specified resource.

The possible values are ipv4 for IPv4 only, ipv6 for IPv6 only, and dualstack for IPv4 and IPv6.

Possible values:

  • dualstack
  • ipv4
  • ipv6

--accept-bundle-update | --no-accept-bundle-update (boolean)

Required parameter to accept the instance bundle update when changing to, and from, IPv6-only.


An instance bundle will change when switching from dual-stack or ipv4 , to ipv6 . It also changes when switching from ipv6 , to dual-stack or ipv4 .

You must include this parameter in the command to update the bundle. For example, if you switch from dual-stack to ipv6 , the bundle will be updated, and billing for the IPv6-only instance bundle begins immediately.

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

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)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--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.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
