VM::EC2::REST::elastic_network_interface(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation VM::EC2::REST::elastic_network_interface(3)
 

 use VM::EC2 ':vpc';

These methods create and manage Elastic Network Interfaces (ENI). Once created, an ENI can be attached to instances and/or be associated with a public IP address. ENIs can only be used in conjunction with VPC instances.
Implemented:
AttachNetworkInterface
CreateNetworkInterface
DeleteNetworkInterface
DescribeNetworkInterfaceAttribute
DescribeNetworkInterfaces
DetachNetworkInterface
ModifyNetworkInterfaceAttribute
ResetNetworkInterfaceAttribute
Unimplemented:
(none)

This method creates an elastic network interface (ENI). If only a single argument is provided, it is treated as the ID of the VPC subnet to associate with the ENI. If multiple arguments are provided, they are treated as -arg=>value parameter pairs.
Arguments:
The -subnet_id argument is mandatory. Others are optional.
 -subnet_id           --  ID of the VPC subnet to associate with the network
                           interface (mandatory)
 -private_ip_address  --  The primary private IP address of the network interface,
                           or a reference to an array of private IP addresses. In the
                           latter case, the first element of the array becomes the
                           primary address, and the subsequent ones become secondary
                           addresses. If no private IP address is specified, one will
                           be chosen for you. See below for more information on this
                           parameter.
 -private_ip_addresses -- Same as -private_ip_address, for readability.
 -secondary_ip_address_count -- An integer requesting this number of secondary IP
                          addresses to be allocated automatically. If present, 
                          cannot provide any secondary addresses explicitly.
 -description          -- Description of this ENI.
 -security_group_id    -- Array reference or scalar containing IDs of the security
                           group(s) to assign to this interface.
You can assign multiple IP addresses to the interface explicitly, or by allowing EC2 to choose addresses within the designated subnet automatically. The following examples demonstrate the syntax:
 # one primary address, chosen explicitly
 -private_ip_address => '192.168.0.12'
 # one primary address and two secondary addresses, chosen explicitly
 -private_ip_address => ['192.168.0.12','192.168.0.200','192.168.0.201'] 
 # one primary address chosen explicitly, and two secondaries chosen automatically
 -private_ip_address => ['192.168.0.12','auto','auto']
 # one primary address chosen explicitly, and two secondaries chosen automatically (another syntax)
 -private_ip_address => ['192.168.0.12',2]
 # one primary address chosen automatically, and two secondaries chosen automatically
 -private_ip_address => [auto,2]
You cannot assign some secondary addresses explicitly and others automatically on the same ENI. If you provide no -private_ip_address parameter at all, then a single private IP address will be chosen for you (the same as -private_ip_address=>'auto').
The return value is a VM::EC2::NetworkInterface object

Deletes the specified network interface. Returns a boolean indicating success of the delete operation.

Return a list of elastic network interfaces as VM::EC2::VPC::NetworkInterface objects. You may restrict the list by passing a list of network interface IDs, a hashref of filters or by using the full named-parameter form.
Optional arguments:
 -network_interface_id    A single network interface ID or an arrayref to
                           a list of IDs.
 -filter                  A hashref for filtering on tags and other attributes.
The list of valid filters can be found at http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSEC2/latest/APIReference/ApiReference-query-DescribeNetworkInterfaces.html.

This method returns network interface attributes. Only one attribute can be retrieved at a time. The following is the list of attributes that can be retrieved:
 description           -- hashref
 groupSet              -- hashref
 sourceDestCheck       -- hashref
 attachment            -- hashref
These values can be retrieved more conveniently from the VM::EC2::NetworkInterface object, so there is no attempt to parse the results of this call into Perl objects.

This method changes network interface attributes. Only one attribute can be set per call The following is the list of attributes that can be set:
 -description             -- interface description
 -security_group_id       -- single security group ID or arrayref to a list of group ids
 -source_dest_check       -- boolean; if false enables packets to be forwarded, and is necessary
                               for NAT and other router tasks
 -delete_on_termination   -- [$attachment_id=>$delete_on_termination]; Pass this a two-element
                               array reference consisting of the attachment ID and a boolean 
                               indicating whether deleteOnTermination should be enabled for
                               this attachment.

This method resets the named network interface attribute to its default value. Only one attribute can be reset per call. The AWS documentation is not completely clear on this point, but it appears that the only attribute that can be reset using this method is:
 source_dest_check       -- Turns on source destination checking
For consistency with modify_network_interface_attribute, you may specify attribute names with or without a leading dash, and using either under_score or mixedCase naming:
 $ec2->reset_network_interface_atribute('eni-12345678' => 'source_dest_check');
 $ec2->reset_network_interface_atribute('eni-12345678' => '-source_dest_check');
 $ec2->reset_network_interface_atribute('eni-12345678' => sourceDestCheck);

This method attaches a network interface to an instance using the indicated device index. You can use instance and network interface IDs, or VM::EC2::Instance and VM::EC2::NetworkInterface objects. You may use an integer for -device_index, or use the strings "eth0", "eth1" etc.
Required arguments:
 -network_interface_id ID of the network interface to attach.
 -instance_id          ID of the instance to attach the interface to.
 -device_index         Network device number to use (e.g. 0 for eth0).
On success, this method returns the attachmentId of the new attachment (not a VM::EC2::NetworkInterface::Attachment object, due to an AWS API inconsistency).
Note that it may be more convenient to attach and detach network interfaces via methods in the VM::EC2::Instance and VM::EC2::NetworkInterface objects:
 $instance->attach_network_interface($interface=>'eth0');
 $interface->attach($instance=>'eth0');

This method detaches a network interface from an instance. Both the network interface and instance are specified using their attachmentId. If the $force flag is present, and true, then the detachment will be forced even if the interface is in use.
Note that it may be more convenient to attach and detach network interfaces via methods in the VM::EC2::Instance and VM::EC2::NetworkInterface objects:
 $instance->detach_network_interface($interface);
 $interface->detach();
