Creating the LB endpoint

The LB endpoint is a listener that forwards traffic from the customer VPC to the GWLB and subsequently to the target group that you created in Creating the GWLB and registering targets. You must create an endpoint for each AZ. Before you create the LB endpoint, you must deploy an endpoint service in the region where your endpoint will be.

To create an endpoint service:
  1. Go to VPC Dashboard > Virtual Private Cloud > Endpoint services.
  2. Click Create Endpoint Service.
  3. For Associate Load Balancers, select the GWLB that you created in Creating the GWLB and registering targets.
  4. Enable endpoint acceptance if desired. This example does not require it.
  5. Click Create service.
To create the LB endpoint:
  1. Go to VPC Dashboard > Virtual Private Cloud > Endpoint Services.
  2. Select the newly created endpoint service.
  3. Copy the service name of the service on the Details tab.
  4. Create the endpoint for the first AZ:
    1. Go to VPC Dashboard > Virtual Private Cloud > Endpoints.
    2. Click Create Endpoint.
    3. For Service category, select Find service by name.
    4. In the Service Name field, paste the service name that you copied in step 1.
    5. Click Verify.
    6. From the VPC dropdown list, select the VPC where you need to deploy the endpoint.
    7. From the Subnets dropdown list, select the subnet where you need to deploy the endpoint. This example selects the GWLB endpoint subnet created in each AZ in the security subnet.
    8. Click Create Endpoint.
  5. Repeat the process to create the endpoint for the second AZ.
