Starting today, you can attach or detach Elastic Load Balancing load balancers in an Auto Scaling group.

Previously, load balancers associated with your Auto Scaling group could not be changed once the group had been created, requiring you to create a brand new Auto Scaling group in order to update your load balancers. Now, you can simply attach or detach load balancers to the Auto Scaling group without disrupting your application. This makes it easier to perform fleet management tasks, such as blue/green deployments or SSL certification upgrades.

You can access these new features using the Auto Scaling API, AWS SDKs, command-line tools, and the AWS Management console. To learn more, please see our documentation.
