(Connectivity test) Adding an EC2 instance to test automatic population
- Assume you want to boot up another instance with an IP address of 10.0.2.113, which is currently stopped. In the AWS management portal, start the instance.
- Verify that the instance is running.
- At this point, running
showagain shows the SDN Connector has automatically populated and added the 10.0.2.113 instance.
Therefore, administrators do not need to add this instance to the Address manually. When a firewall policy is applied to this Address, 10.0.2.113 is automatically covered. The filtering condition can be set using multiple entries with AND ("&") or OR ("|"). When both ANDand OR are used, ANDis interpreted before OR. Check the syntax by entering
set filter ?.
For example, you can enter
subnetID=subnet-fb2506a0 & tag.Name=abc123. In this case, an IP address of the instance that matches both the subnet ID and the tag "Name" shows up. Note wildcards are not allowed in values.
