Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • awayFrom (string) –

      The Availability Zone that traffic is moved away from for a resource when you start a zonal shift. Until the zonal shift expires or you cancel it, traffic for the resource is instead moved to other Availability Zones in the Amazon Web Services Region.

    • comment (string) –

      A comment that you enter about the zonal shift. Only the latest comment is retained; no comment history is maintained. A new comment overwrites any existing comment string.

    • expiryTime (datetime) –

      The expiry time (expiration time) for a customer-started zonal shift. A zonal shift is temporary and must be set to expire when you start the zonal shift. You can initially set a zonal shift to expire in a maximum of three days (72 hours). However, you can update a zonal shift to set a new expiration at any time.

      When you start a zonal shift, you specify how long you want it to be active, which Route 53 ARC converts to an expiry time (expiration time). You can cancel a zonal shift when you’re ready to restore traffic to the Availability Zone, or just wait for it to expire. Or you can update the zonal shift to specify another length of time to expire in.

    • resourceIdentifier (string) –

      The identifier for the resource to shift away traffic for. The identifier is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the resource.

      At this time, supported resources are Network Load Balancers and Application Load Balancers with cross-zone load balancing turned off.

    • startTime (datetime) –

      The time (UTC) when the zonal shift starts.

    • status (string) –

      A status for a zonal shift.

      The Status for a zonal shift can have one of the following values:

      • ACTIVE: The zonal shift has been started and active.

      • EXPIRED: The zonal shift has expired (the expiry time was exceeded).

      • CANCELED: The zonal shift was canceled.

    • zonalShiftId (string) –

      The identifier of a zonal shift.
