AWS EC2 Create VPC

Creates a VPC


By downloading this file, you acknowledge that you agree to our Terms of Service

Detailed Description

This handler uses the AWS REST API to create a VPC for AWS. The input takes a CIDR and an Instance Tenancy options as input values. For Instance Tenancy, a value of 'default' means that instances can be launched with any tenancy; a value of 'dedicated' means all instances launched into the VPC are launched as dedicated tenancy instances regardless of the tenancy assigned to the instance at launch. Dedicated tenancy instances run on single-tenant hardware.

The Dry Run parameter validates user permissions and inputs. If it is set to true, an error will always be thrown by the handler before completing the handler action. Error response will be 'DryRunOperation' if the account has proper permissions and inputs; 'UnauthorizedOperation' if the account does not have proper permissions.


Name Description
Dry Run Dry run validates user permissions and inputs without completing the EC2 action (true or false).
CIDR Block The network range for the VPC, in CIDR notation.
Instance Tenancy The supported tenancy options for instances launched into the VPC are default, dedicated, or host.
