aws lightsail create-load-balancer

Creates a Lightsail load balancer. To learn more about deciding whether to load balance your application, see Configure your Lightsail instances for load balancing. You can create up to 5 load balancers per AWS Region in your account. When you create a load balancer, you can specify a unique name and port settings. To change additional load balancer settings, use the UpdateLoadBalancerAttribute operation. The create load balancer operation supports tag-based access control via request tags. For more information, see the Lightsail Dev Guide


--load-balancer-name <string>The name of your load balancer
--instance-port <integer>The instance port where you're creating your load balancer
--health-check-path <string>The path you provided to perform the load balancer health check. If you didn't specify a health check path, Lightsail uses the root path of your website (e.g., "/"). You may want to specify a custom health check path other than the root of your application if your home page loads slowly or has a lot of media or scripting on it
--certificate-name <string>The name of the SSL/TLS certificate. If you specify certificateName, then certificateDomainName is required (and vice-versa)
--certificate-domain-name <string>The domain name with which your certificate is associated (e.g., If you specify certificateDomainName, then certificateName is required (and vice-versa)
--certificate-alternative-names <list>The optional alternative domains and subdomains to use with your SSL/TLS certificate (e.g.,,,,
--tags <list>The tag keys and optional values to add to the resource during create. Use the TagResource action to tag a resource after it's created
--ip-address-type <string>The IP address type for the load balancer. The possible values are ipv4 for IPv4 only, and dualstack for IPv4 and IPv6. The default value is dualstack
--cli-input-json <string>Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by ``--generate-cli-skeleton``. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI 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
--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``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
