VM::EC2::ElasticAddress(3) Object describing an Amazon EC2 Elastic Address


use VM::EC2;
$ec2 = VM::EC2->new(...);
$addr = $ec2->allocate_address;
$ip = $addr->publicIp;
$domain = $addr->domain;
$allId = $addr->allocationId;


This object represents an Amazon EC2 elastic address and is returned by by VM::EC2->allocate_address().


These object methods are supported:

 publicIp      -- Public IP of the address
 domain        -- Type of address, either "standard" or "vpc"
 allocationId  -- For VPC addresses only, an allocation ID
 instanceId    -- If the address is associated with an instance, the
                  ID of that instance.
 associationId -- If the address is a VPC elastic IP, and associated
                  with an instance, then the ID of the association.

In addition, the following convenience methods are provided:

$result = $addr->associate($instance_id)

Associate this address with the given instance ID or VM::EC2::Instance object. If successful, the result code will be true for an ordinary EC2 Elastic IP,or equal to the associationId for a VPC Elastic IP address.

$result = $addr->disassociate()

Disassociate this address with any instance it is already associated with. If successful, this method will return true.


This is an internal function called after associate() and disassociate(), and is used to refresh the address object's contents.


When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the publicIp.
