Automate Letsencrypt for aws ELB


#1

Hello,

We are currently renewal our aws elb certificate manually using terraform/cerbot. However, we would like to automate the certificate renewals. Is there a process to implement this?

Hi,

May I know what’s the reason to use let’s encrypt certificate for the ELB? (Since ACM is intergrated into ELB and other aws services…)

Since ELB is not command line based… You probably will still need to renew manually (or try to write a script that copy the validation file into each node before proceed with validation…)

Thank you

:wink:

Or if you’re using Route 53, many clients including certbot and acme.sh have support for it, so you could use that to validate.

I agree that ACM is usually a better choice in this scenario though.
