AWS CDK to create a Fargate Load Balancer solution with an ssl certificate with an external DNS provider

0

Hello,

I want to create a. ECS Fargate ApplicationLoadBalancer solution using a certificate for a Domain which is hosted on a external DNS provider (godaddy)

Here is my code:


    //create a new certificate in the certificate manager for the domain 

    const certificate = new acm.Certificate(this, ‘certificate’, {

      domainName: ‘api-fargate.mygodaddy.org’,

      validation: acm.CertificateValidation.fromDns(),

    }

    );

    new ecs_patterns.ApplicationLoadBalancedFargateService(this, ‘ECService’, {

      cluster,

      taskDefinition,

      certificate: certificate,

      domainName: ‘api-fargate.mygodaddy.org’,

      listenerPort: 443,

      taskSubnets: {

        subnetType: ec2.SubnetType.PRIVATE_WITH_EGRESS,

      },

    });

The error I get is:

Error: A Route53 hosted domain zone name is required to configure the specified domain name

How I can do what I want, not having a Route53 hosted domain, I hope the answer is not do it all manual ;)

Hi,

Can you share version used? Typically I would look into GitHub repository and check why that error is triggered.

For instance, https://github.com/aws/aws-cdk/blob/767cd31c2b66b48b3b8fed7cd8d408a6846cf1e1/packages/%40aws-cdk/aws-ecs-patterns/lib/base/application-load-balanced-service-base.ts#L457. In that version, seems as domainZone needs to be provided too, apart from domainName.

As you may use a different version, the code logic may be different.

Eventually, could be that this construct pattern requires the domain to be on route 53, but hope to be wrong :)

Hope it helps ;)

  • hmmm, you are right, it seams there is no way to do that using the ApplicationLoadBalancedFargateService function
