» Resource: aws_subnet

Provides an VPC subnet resource.

» Example Usage

» Basic Usage

resource "aws_subnet" "main" {
  vpc_id     = "${aws_vpc.main.id}"
  cidr_block = ""

  tags = {
    Name = "Main"

» Subnets In Secondary VPC CIDR Blocks

When managing subnets in one of a VPC's secondary CIDR blocks created using a aws_vpc_ipv4_cidr_block_association resource, it is recommended to reference that resource's vpc_id attribute to ensure correct dependency ordering.

resource "aws_vpc_ipv4_cidr_block_association" "secondary_cidr" {
  vpc_id     = "${aws_vpc.main.id}"
  cidr_block = ""

resource "aws_subnet" "in_secondary_cidr" {
  vpc_id     = "${aws_vpc_ipv4_cidr_block_association.secondary_cidr.vpc_id}"
  cidr_block = ""

» Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • availability_zone - (Optional) The AZ for the subnet.
  • availability_zone_id - (Optional) The AZ ID of the subnet.
  • cidr_block - (Required) The CIDR block for the subnet.
  • ipv6_cidr_block - (Optional) The IPv6 network range for the subnet, in CIDR notation. The subnet size must use a /64 prefix length.
  • map_public_ip_on_launch - (Optional) Specify true to indicate that instances launched into the subnet should be assigned a public IP address. Default is false.
  • outpost_arn - (Optional) The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Outpost.
  • assign_ipv6_address_on_creation - (Optional) Specify true to indicate that network interfaces created in the specified subnet should be assigned an IPv6 address. Default is false
  • vpc_id - (Required) The VPC ID.
  • tags - (Optional) A map of tags to assign to the resource.

» Attributes Reference

In addition to all arguments above, the following attributes are exported:

» Timeouts

aws_subnet provides the following Timeouts configuration options:

  • create - (Default 10m) How long to wait for a subnet to be created.
  • delete - (Default 20m) How long to retry on DependencyViolation errors during subnet deletion from lingering ENIs left by certain AWS services such as Elastic Load Balancing. NOTE: Lambda ENIs can take up to 45 minutes to delete, which is not affected by changing this customizable timeout (in version 2.31.0 and later of the Terraform AWS Provider) unless it is increased above 45 minutes.

» Import

Subnets can be imported using the subnet id, e.g.

$ terraform import aws_subnet.public_subnet subnet-9d4a7b6c
