There are two ways of registering your target with the target group:

By instance ID

  • For Instances, select one or more instances.
  • Keep the default instance listener port or type a new one and choose Add to registered.
  • When you have finished registering instances, choose Next: Review.

Can this be done using IP address of the instances?

Yes you can register to target group using IP addresses as well. Follow these steps:

  1. For Network, if the IP address is from a subnet of the target group VPC, select the VPC. Otherwise, select Other private IP address.
  2. For Availability Zone, select an Availability Zone or all. This determines whether the target receives traffic from the load balancer nodes in the specified Availability Zone only or from all enabled Availability Zones. This field is not displayed if you are registering IP addresses from the VPC. In this case, the Availability Zone is automatically detected.
  3. For IP, type the address.
  4. For Port, type the port.
  5. Choose Add to list.
  6. When you have finished adding IP addresses to the list, choose Next: Review.
Can you write this as an answer? It will make it easier for other readers to understand. Thank you
