Get Unused Elastic IPs

Amazon Web Services (AWS)’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a commercial web service that allows users to rent virtual computers. Using AWS EC2’s cloud infrastructure, you can build powerful servers in the cloud. This service completely eliminates the need to set up and invest in hardware, enabling you to deploy your apps quickly. With AWS EC2, you can set up servers, configure networking and security, and manage storage.

AWS provides Elastic IP addresses for dynamic cloud computing. If there are any unused Elastic IP addresses in your account, and you want to get the list of these Elastic IPs, you can use this activity. You first need to configure the activity, and select the required AWS connection. Select the region in which you want to perform this check. If you run the flow, it will return the list of all Elastic IPs that are unused. 

You can also check whether a particular IP is being used or not by specifying that particular IP. Similarly, you can specify the allocation ID as well as set filters to further narrow your search. 


Once you have entered all the details, click on ‘Done’ and run the flow to get the desired list.
