missing properties in InstanceProps interface


Hi team,

I'm creating an ec2 instance via CDK, but I can't find how to set:

  • Termination protection (Enabled)
  • Answer private resource DNS name (IPv4 (A))

I can't find those 2 properties on InstanceProps interface

are they supported by CDK?

Thank you!

From the CDK documentation (2) , we are unable to enable instance termination protection; although we can enable CDK stack terminationProtection (1). We can configure private DNS Name (IPv4 A) using instancePrivateIp Properties (2).

  • Thank you for your answer,

    if I use instancePrivateIp, I force my instance to have a specific IP so I just want the instance to get one available private IP address at the time of deploying the stack
