    # Returns a L<Paws::OpsWorks::CreateLayerResult> object.

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object. For the AWS API documentation, see


Attributes => Paws::OpsWorks::LayerAttributes

One or more user-defined key-value pairs to be added to the stack attributes.

To create a cluster layer, set the EcsClusterArn attribute to the cluster's ARN.

AutoAssignElasticIps => Bool

Whether to automatically assign an Elastic IP address ( to the layer's instances. For more information, see How to Edit a Layer (

AutoAssignPublicIps => Bool

For stacks that are running in a VPC, whether to automatically assign a public IP address to the layer's instances. For more information, see How to Edit a Layer (

CloudWatchLogsConfiguration => Paws::OpsWorks::CloudWatchLogsConfiguration

Specifies CloudWatch Logs configuration options for the layer. For more information, see CloudWatchLogsLogStream.

CustomInstanceProfileArn => Str

The ARN of an IAM profile to be used for the layer's EC2 instances. For more information about IAM ARNs, see Using Identifiers (

CustomJson => Str

A JSON-formatted string containing custom stack configuration and deployment attributes to be installed on the layer's instances. For more information, see Using Custom JSON ( This feature is supported as of version 1.7.42 of the AWS CLI.

CustomRecipes => Paws::OpsWorks::Recipes

A LayerCustomRecipes object that specifies the layer custom recipes.

CustomSecurityGroupIds => ArrayRef[Str|Undef]

An array containing the layer custom security group IDs.

EnableAutoHealing => Bool

Whether to disable auto healing for the layer.

InstallUpdatesOnBoot => Bool

Whether to install operating system and package updates when the instance boots. The default value is true. To control when updates are installed, set this value to false. You must then update your instances manually by using CreateDeployment to run the update_dependencies stack command or by manually running yum (Amazon Linux) or apt-get (Ubuntu) on the instances.

To ensure that your instances have the latest security updates, we strongly recommend using the default value of true.

LifecycleEventConfiguration => Paws::OpsWorks::LifecycleEventConfiguration

A LifeCycleEventConfiguration object that you can use to configure the Shutdown event to specify an execution timeout and enable or disable Elastic Load Balancer connection draining.

REQUIRED Name => Str

The layer name, which is used by the console.

Packages => ArrayRef[Str|Undef]

An array of Package objects that describes the layer packages.

REQUIRED Shortname => Str

For custom layers only, use this parameter to specify the layer's short name, which is used internally by AWS OpsWorks Stacks and by Chef recipes. The short name is also used as the name for the directory where your app files are installed. It can have a maximum of 200 characters, which are limited to the alphanumeric characters, '-', '_', and '.'.

The built-in layers' short names are defined by AWS OpsWorks Stacks. For more information, see the Layer Reference (

REQUIRED StackId => Str

The layer stack ID.

REQUIRED Type => Str

The layer type. A stack cannot have more than one built-in layer of the same type. It can have any number of custom layers. Built-in layers are not available in Chef 12 stacks.

Valid values are: "aws-flow-ruby", "ecs-cluster", "java-app", "lb", "web", "php-app", "rails-app", "nodejs-app", "memcached", "db-master", "monitoring-master", "custom"

UseEbsOptimizedInstances => Bool

Whether to use Amazon EBS-optimized instances.

VolumeConfigurations => ArrayRef[Paws::OpsWorks::VolumeConfiguration]

A VolumeConfigurations object that describes the layer's Amazon EBS volumes.
