Attach and Detach Elastic Load Balancers from Auto-Scaling Groups

22 / Jun / 2015 by Aakash Garg 0 comments

Recently AWS started a new feature of attaching and detaching the Load Balancer in an Auto-Scaling Group.
If we attach a load balancer to an auto-scaling group it allows the load balancer to send traffic to the EC2 instance in the group. And when we are detaching a load balancer from a group stops it from sending traffic.

I have 2 load balancer, initially:

6. We can even change the current load balancer of the auto-scaling group.

With this feature we can manage our auto-scaling groups in a better way, by simply just editing them.
Please feel free to ask any doubts.
