ELB CloudFormation Blueprint

CodeBuild

BoltOps Badge

This blueprint provisions an ELB Load Balancer. Both Application or Network Load Balancers are supported.

  • Several AWS::ElasticLoadBalancingV2::LoadBalancer properties are configurable with Parameters. Additionally, properties that require further customization are configurable with Variables. The blueprint is extremely flexible and configurable for your needs.
  • By default, an Application ELB is created.
  • You can assign existing Security Groups to the ELB or have the blueprint create a managed security group for you.
  • A Listener and Target Group is also created and automatically setup.
  • Can create an optional managed Route53 record that points to the ELB Endpoint.

Usage

  1. Add blueprint to Gemfile
  2. Configure: configs/elb values
  3. Deploy blueprint

Add

Add the blueprint to your lono project's Gemfile.

gem "elb", git: "git@github.com:boltopspro/elb.git"

Configure

Use the lono seed command to generate a starter config params files.

LONO_ENV=development lono seed elb
LONO_ENV=production  lono seed elb

The files in config/elb folder will look something like this:

configs/elb/
├── params
│   ├── development.txt
│   └── production.txt
└── variables
    ├── development.rb
    └── production.rb

Configure the configs/elb/params and configs/elb/variables files. The parameters required: Subnets and VpcId. Example:

configs/elb/params/development.txt:

Subnets=subnet-111,subnet-222
VpcId=vpc-111

Note Subnets is required when using an Application ELB and you're not using @subnet_mappings for precreated static EIPs with a network ELB.

Deploy

Use the lono cfn deploy command to deploy.

LONO_ENV=development lono cfn deploy elb --sure --no-wait
LONO_ENV=production  lono cfn deploy elb --sure --no-wait

It takes about 5m to deploy the ELB. Times may vary.

If you are using One AWS Account, use these commands instead: One Account.

Configure: More Details

Security Groups

To assign existing security groups to the RDS database use SecurityGroups. Example:

SecurityGroups=sg-111,sg-222

If not set, then the blueprint will create and a managed Security Group and assign it to the ELB.

Managed Security Group Rules

If you wish to add whitelist rules to the managed security group created by the blueprint, use @security_group_ingress. Example:

configs/elb/variables/development.rb:

@security_group_ingress = [{
  CidrIp: "0.0.0.0/0", # String
  FromPort: 80, # Integer
  IpProtocol: "tcp", # String
  ToPort: 80, # Integer
},{
  CidrIp: "0.0.0.0/0", # String
  FromPort: 443, # Integer
  IpProtocol: "tcp", # String
  ToPort: 443, # Integer
}]

More info: AWS::EC2::SecurityGroup Ingress

Load Balancer Attributes

You can edit the Load Balancer Attributes with the @load_balancer_attributes variable. Example:

configs/elb/variables/development.rb

@load_balancer_attributes = [{
  Key: "idle_timeout.timeout_seconds",
  Value: 30
}]

More docs: Filter View: AWS::ElasticLoadBalancingV2::LoadBalancer LoadBalancerAttribute

Route53 DNS Pretty Host Name

It is recommended to create a Route53 pretty endpoint for the ELB Endpoint. Example:

DnsName=my-elb.example.com.
HostedZoneName=example.com.

HTTPS SSL Termination

To configure the ELB to use HTTPS, configure the CertificateArn, Protocol, and Port parameters. Example:

CertificateArn=arn:aws:acm:us-west-2:112233445566:certificate/f29db923-7bba-4a9f-9b58-06ba1EXAMPLE # example.com
Port=443
Protocol=HTTPS

Registering Targets

To register targets to the Target Group with code, use the @targets variable:

configs/elb/variables/development.rb

@targets = [{
  Id: "i-065d6916cc44454d3",
  Port: "8888",
}]

The default is TargetType=instance. If you registering IP and Port combinations, use TargetType=ip. If you are registering Lambda functions, use TargetType=lambda.

Network Load Balancer

If you wish to create a Network Load Balancer instead of an Application Load Balancer, use Type=network. The Listener Protocol and TargetGroupProtocol must also be set to valid supported values for Network Load Balancers. Example:

Type=network
Protocol=TCP # Examples: TCP_UDP, UDP, TCP, TLS
TargetGroupProtocol=TCP # Examples: TCP_UDP, UDP, TCP, TLS

Network Load Balancer with Existing Static IPs

If you would like to use static IP addresses from pre-created Elastic IP Addresses, EIPs, then you can use the @subnet_mappings variables. Example:

configs/elb/variables/development.rb

@subnet_mappings = [{
  AllocationId: "eipalloc-111",
  SubnetId: "subnet-111"
},{
  AllocationId: "eipalloc-222",
  SubnetId: "subnet-222"
}]

Note, you also must not use the Subnets parameter when using setting the @subnet_mappings variable. We're only allowed set the Subnets or SubnetMappings property.

Advanced Properties Customizations

@subnet_mappings = [{
  AllocationId: "eipalloc-111",
  SubnetId: "subnet-111"
},{
  AllocationId: "eipalloc-222",
  SubnetId: "subnet-222"
}]

Refer to helpers/variables_helper.rb for the full list of variables.
