AWS EC2 Create Network Interface VERSION 1

Creates a network interface in the specified subnet. For more information see the Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute User Guide online.

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.


Dry RunDry run validates user permissions and inputs without completing the EC2 action (true or false).
Subnet IDThe ID of the subnet to associate with the network interface.
DescriptionA description for the network interface.
Private IP Address (Primary)The primary private IP address of the network interface. If you don't specify an IP address, Amazon EC2 selects one for you from the subnet range. If you specify an IP address, you cannot indicate any IP addresses specified in Private IP Addresses as primary (only one IP address can be designated as primary).
Security Group IDsThe IDs of one or more security groups, separated by commas.
Private IP AddressesOne or more private IP addresses in JSON format. Note: only one IP address can be designated as primary, and if you are using the 'Private IP Address (Primary)' as well as this field, that will be the primary -- [{"private_ip_address":"IP address","primary":true},{"private_ip_address":"IP address","primary":false}]
Secondary Private IP Address CountThe number of secondary private IP addresses to assign to a network interface. When you specify a number of secondary IP addresses, Amazon EC2 selects these IP addresses within the subnet range. You can't specify this option and specify more than one private IP address using Private IP Addresses
