Provisions an IPv4 or IPv6 address range for use with your Amazon Web Services resources through bring your own IP addresses (BYOIP) and creates a corresponding address pool. After the address range is provisioned, it is ready to be advertised using AdvertiseByoipCidr .

Amazon Web Services verifies that you own the address range and are authorized to advertise it. You must ensure that the address range is registered to you and that you created an RPKI ROA to authorize Amazon ASNs 16509 and 14618 to advertise the address range. For more information, see Bring your own IP addresses (BYOIP) in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

Provisioning an address range is an asynchronous operation, so the call returns immediately, but the address range is not ready to use until its status changes from pending-provision to provisioned . To monitor the status of an address range, use DescribeByoipCidrs . To allocate an Elastic IP address from your IPv4 address pool, use AllocateAddress with either the specific address from the address pool or the ID of the address pool.

type Cidr


param Cidr


The public IPv4 or IPv6 address range, in CIDR notation. The most specific IPv4 prefix that you can specify is /24. The most specific IPv6 prefix you can specify is /56. The address range cannot overlap with another address range that you've brought to this or another Region.

type CidrAuthorizationContext


param CidrAuthorizationContext

A signed document that proves that you are authorized to bring the specified IP address range to Amazon using BYOIP.

  • Message (string) -- [REQUIRED]

    The plain-text authorization message for the prefix and account.

  • Signature (string) -- [REQUIRED]

    The signed authorization message for the prefix and account.

type PubliclyAdvertisable


param PubliclyAdvertisable

(IPv6 only) Indicate whether the address range will be publicly advertised to the internet.

Default: true

type Description


param Description

A description for the address range and the address pool.

type DryRun


param DryRun

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

type PoolTagSpecifications


param PoolTagSpecifications

The tags to apply to the address pool.

  • (dict) --

    The tags to apply to a resource when the resource is being created.

    • ResourceType (string) --

      The type of resource to tag. Currently, the resource types that support tagging on creation are: capacity-reservation | carrier-gateway | client-vpn-endpoint | customer-gateway | dedicated-host | dhcp-options | egress-only-internet-gateway | elastic-ip | elastic-gpu | export-image-task | export-instance-task | fleet | fpga-image | host-reservation | image | import-image-task | import-snapshot-task | instance | internet-gateway | ipv4pool-ec2 | ipv6pool-ec2 | key-pair | launch-template | local-gateway-route-table-vpc-association | placement-group | prefix-list | natgateway | network-acl | network-interface | reserved-instances |route-table | security-group | snapshot | spot-fleet-request | spot-instances-request | snapshot | subnet | traffic-mirror-filter | traffic-mirror-session | traffic-mirror-target | transit-gateway | transit-gateway-attachment | transit-gateway-multicast-domain | transit-gateway-route-table | volume |vpc | vpc-peering-connection | vpc-endpoint (for interface and gateway endpoints) | vpc-endpoint-service (for AWS PrivateLink) | vpc-flow-log | vpn-connection | vpn-gateway .

      To tag a resource after it has been created, see CreateTags .

    • Tags (list) --

      The tags to apply to the resource.

      • (dict) --

        Describes a tag.

        • Key (string) --
