Hi there, it seems
aws.ec2.Subnet
and
awsx.ec2.Subnet
don’t set the subnet Name, neither from the
name
parameter nor any
SubnetArgs
values. Why and how to set it then ? Also these two lacks a lot of properties from
awsx.ec2.Vpc
subnets
argument, which would be helpful to have when adding new subnets later on. (or should we avoid
aws(x).ec2.Subnet
entirely ?)

awsx.ec2.Vpc
abstracts away the fact that naming a Subnet from AWS’s perspective is simply adding a tag with key
Name

Ok thanks @faint-table-42725 so if I want to create manually a subnet and set its name I have to add a tag
Name
to it ?

It does seem like it would make sense to add that same convenience to
awsx.ec2.Subnet
. I’m not sure why that wasn’t done in the original design.
That’s correct — just add a tag with key
Name
with the value being the name you want

Ok thanks. That’s definitely unclear and hard to guess. I agree you should eventually add this convenience to
awsx.ec2.Subnet
(shouldn’t be hard to add I suppose)
