[ aws . datapipeline ]



Task runners call report-task-runner-heartbeat every 15 minutes to indicate that they are operational. If the AWS Data Pipeline Task Runner is launched on a resource managed by AWS Data Pipeline, the web service can use this call to detect when the task runner application has failed and restart a new instance.

--taskrunner-id <value>
[--worker-group <value>]
[--hostname <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--taskrunner-id (string)

The ID of the task runner. This value should be unique across your AWS account. In the case of AWS Data Pipeline Task Runner launched on a resource managed by AWS Data Pipeline, the web service provides a unique identifier when it launches the application. If you have written a custom task runner, you should assign a unique identifier for the task runner.

--worker-group (string)

The type of task the task runner is configured to accept and process. The worker group is set as a field on objects in the pipeline when they are created. You can only specify a single value for workerGroup . There are no wildcard values permitted in workerGroup ; the worker-group must be an exact, case-sensitive, match.

--hostname (string)

The public DNS name of the task runner.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON worker-group provided. The JSON worker-group follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.


terminate -> (boolean)

Indicates whether the calling task runner should terminate.
