VirtualNodeSpec - Amazon App Mesh
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).


An object that represents the specification of a virtual node.



A reference to an object that represents the defaults for backends.

Type: BackendDefaults object

Required: No


The backends that the virtual node is expected to send outbound traffic to.


App Mesh doesn't validate the existence of those virtual services specified in backends. This is to prevent a cyclic dependency between virtual nodes and virtual services creation. Make sure the virtual service name is correct. The virtual service can be created afterwards if it doesn't already exist.

Type: Array of Backend objects

Required: No


The listener that the virtual node is expected to receive inbound traffic from. You can specify one listener.

Type: Array of Listener objects

Required: No


The inbound and outbound access logging information for the virtual node.

Type: Logging object

Required: No


The service discovery information for the virtual node. If your virtual node does not expect ingress traffic, you can omit this parameter. If you specify a listener, then you must specify service discovery information.

Type: ServiceDiscovery object

Note: This object is a Union. Only one member of this object can be specified or returned.

Required: No
