I am trying to use cloudformation to setup a ASG and I have a target group which I would like to associate with the ASG. The target group is created okay but when I go to attach it to the ASG I get an error message. I'd like to be able to attach this as I want a ALB in front of the ASG

Error message:

Value of property TargetGroupARNs must be of type List of String

Cloudformation code

TargetGroup:
    Type: AWS::ElasticLoadBalancingV2::TargetGroup
    Properties:
      VpcId: 
        Fn::ImportValue: 
          !Sub "${Prefix}-VpcId"
      TargetType: instance
      Port: 443
      Protocol: HTTPS
AutoScalingGroup:

  • Did you solve the issue? It seems that TargetGroupARNs is neither a List or String. – 030 Dec 20 '19 at 11:42

As the error message states, TargetGroupARNs value should be of type List. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/aws-properties-as-group.html#cfn-as-group-targetgrouparns
