AWS Toolkit for Eclipse: VPC Configuration for an AWS Elastic Beanstalk Environment

by Zhaoxi Zhang | on | in Java | | Comments

I’m glad to announce that the AWS Elastic Beanstalk plugin in the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse now supports Configuring VPC with Elastic Beanstalk. If you’re new to AWS Toolkit for Eclipse, see the User Guide for a basic introduction and setup guidance. If you’re new to AWS Elastic Beanstalk plugin, see AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Eclipse Integration to learn how to manage your application and environment within Eclipse. If you’re not familiar with VPC configurations for Elastic Beanstalk environments, see Using Elastic Beanstalk with Amazon VPC.

The following screenshots show the plugin New Server wizard pages for VPC configuration. If you’ve used the Elastic Beanstalk console, these user interfaces should be familiar. On the Configure Application and Environment page, you can choose Select a VPC to use when creating your environment to open the VPC Configuration page. Otherwise, when you click Next, the Permissions page opens directly.

On the VPC Configuration page, you can set up the VPC configurations, such as subnets, security group, etc. You must select at least one subnet for a valid configuration. ELB visibility is disabled unless you chose Load Balanced Web Server Environment for the Environment type on the previous Configure Application and Environment page. For more information about the options and how to configure them for your VPC needs, see Using Elastic Beanstalk with Amazon VPC.

As you can see, it’s easy to configure a VPC for your Elastic Beanstalk environment using the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse plugin. Please let us know if there are other features you want to see in this toolkit. We appreciate your comments.
