» Removing aws_dx_hosted_public_virtual_interface_accepter from your configuration

AWS allows a Direct Connect hosted public virtual interface to be deleted from either the allocator's or accepter's side. However, Terraform only allows the Direct Connect hosted public virtual interface to be deleted from the allocator's side by removing the corresponding aws_dx_hosted_public_virtual_interface resource from your configuration. Removing a aws_dx_hosted_public_virtual_interface_accepter resource from your configuration will remove it from your statefile and management, but will not delete the Direct Connect virtual interface.

» Attributes Reference

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

  • id - The ID of the virtual interface.
  • arn - The ARN of the virtual interface.

» Timeouts

aws_dx_hosted_public_virtual_interface_accepter provides the following Timeouts configuration options:

  • create - (Default 10 minutes) Used for creating virtual interface
  • delete - (Default 10 minutes) Used for destroying virtual interface

» Import

Direct Connect hosted public virtual interfaces can be imported using the vif id, e.g.

$ terraform import aws_dx_hosted_public_virtual_interface_accepter.test dxvif-33cc44dd
