AWS::EFS::AccessPoint RootDirectory - Amazon CloudFormation
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

AWS::EFS::AccessPoint RootDirectory

Specifies the directory on the Amazon EFS file system that the access point provides access to. The access point exposes the specified file system path as the root directory of your file system to applications using the access point. NFS clients using the access point can only access data in the access point's RootDirectory and it's subdirectories.


To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "CreationInfo" : CreationInfo, "Path" : String }



(Optional) Specifies the POSIX IDs and permissions to apply to the access point's RootDirectory. If the RootDirectory > Path specified does not exist, EFS creates the root directory using the CreationInfo settings when a client connects to an access point. When specifying the CreationInfo, you must provide values for all properties.


If you do not provide CreationInfo and the specified RootDirectory > Path does not exist, attempts to mount the file system using the access point will fail.
