Performing Entire Configuration Export

You can export the entire VPC configuration and restore it from the CloudFormation template to the original location or to a new location.


If you plan to restore the exported VPC configuration, consider that restore to a new location is not supported for the following VPC configuration items:

  • Client VPN endpoints.
  • Customer gateways and load balancer listeners that use authentication certificates.
  • In route tables, for core networks and routes to AWS Outpost local gateways, network interfaces, instances and carrier gateways.

To export the entire VPC configuration to a CloudFormation template, do the following:

  1. Launch the VPC Export wizard.
  2. Select a restore point and VPCs to export.
  3. Specify an IAM identity for export.
  4. Choose an export mode.
  5. Configure mapping for Availability Zones.
  6. Configure settings for VPC peering connections.
  7. Specify an Amazon S3 bucket where the Cloud Formation template must be placed.
  8. Specify a reason for export.
  9. Review export settings.
