This layer provides the AWS-ELB.
This layer adds AWS ElasticLoadBalancer infront of your EC2 deployed applications.
Usage and Caveats
To use this charm you must have a pre-existing ACM cert
for the domain/fqdn you wish to use on the ELB, as well as pre-existing IGW subnets.
Future version of this charm will offer lets-encrypt cert creation/acquisition capability.
Create the model and network space
(I often use a "nat" space that includes subnets that use a routing table that points 0.0.0.0/0 -> nat-gw)
juju add-model aws-elb-testing aws/us-west-2
juju add-spaces nat 172.31.102.0/24 172.31.103.0/24 172.31.104.0/24
Deploy the 2 primary charms and the subordinate
juju deploy cs:~containers/aws-integrator-5 --constraints "spaces=nat instance-type=m5.large"
juju deploy cs:~omnivector/aws-elb-16
juju deploy cs:~jamesbeedy/flask-test-2 --constraints "spaces=nat instance-type=m5.large"
juju expose flask-test
Trust, config, and make relations
(The aws-elb charm will block until the 'subnets' and 'cert-fqdn' configs are set)
juju trust aws-integrator
(use your own cert-fqdn and subnet ids - both must pre-exist in aws)
juju config aws-elb cert-fqdn="*.peopledatalabs.com"
juju config aws-elb subnets="subnet-1de11955,subnet-50b0f336,subnet-7128282a"
juju relate aws-integrator aws-elb
juju relate aws-elb flask-test
After the ELB is [successfully created](https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/QzMS6fW8XK/), you can use the actionget-elb-dns` to get the dns name of the ELB.
$ juju run-action aws-elb/17 --wait get-elb-dns
completed: 2018-09-23 00:48:21 +0000 UTC
enqueued: 2018-09-23 00:48:21 +0000 UTC
started: 2018-09-23 00:48:21 +0000 UTC
Following this you need to create/update an CNAME record to point at the FQDN of the ELB before you will be able to successfully access the web endpoint.
