Configure an AWS Classic Load Balancer for ECS

Configure an AWS Classic Load Balancer for accessing Prisma Cloud Console. Console serves its UI and API over HTTPS on port 8083, and Defender communicates with Console over a websocket on port 8084. You’ll set up a single load balancer to forward requests for both port 8083 and 8084 to Console, with the load balancer checking Console’s health using the /api/v1/_ping endpoint on port 8083.
For the complete install procedure for Prisma Cloud on Amazon ECS, see here.
