• AWS: Recover a released Elastic IP

    2 min read

    aws EIP EC2

    Once you release an Elastic IP, it goes back to the pool for any other customer to use it. What do we do if we accidentally release an Elastic IP address? I shouldn't be hard for use to just pick a different IP and update the records accordingly if we are using IaC (terraform, pulumi, crossplane...)

    However, sometimes there will be configuration relative to that particular Elastic IP out our control: third-party white listings would be a clear instance of this kind of situations. Can we request AWS to recover a released Elastic IP?
