update-environment

Description

Updates the environment description, deploys a new application version, updates the configuration settings to an entirely new configuration template, or updates select configuration option values in the running environment.

Attempting to update both the release and configuration is not allowed and AWS Elastic Beanstalk returns an InvalidParameterCombination error.

When updating the configuration settings to a new template or individual settings, a draft configuration is created and describe-configuration-settings for this environment returns two setting descriptions with different DeploymentStatus values.

Options

--application-name (string)

The name of the application with which the environment is associated.

--environment-id (string)

The ID of the environment to update.

If no environment with this ID exists, AWS Elastic Beanstalk returns an InvalidParameterValue error.

Condition: You must specify either this or an EnvironmentName, or both. If you do not specify either, AWS Elastic Beanstalk returns MissingRequiredParameter error.

--environment-name (string)

The name of the environment to update. If no environment with this name exists, AWS Elastic Beanstalk returns an InvalidParameterValue error.

Condition: You must specify either this or an EnvironmentId, or both. If you do not specify either, AWS Elastic Beanstalk returns MissingRequiredParameter error.

--group-name (string)

The name of the group to which the target environment belongs. Specify a group name only if the environment's name is specified in an environment manifest and not with the environment name or environment ID parameters. See Environment Manifest (env.yaml) for details.

--description (string)

If this parameter is specified, AWS Elastic Beanstalk updates the description of this environment.

--tier (structure)

This specifies the tier to use to update the environment.

Condition: At this time, if you change the tier version, name, or type, AWS Elastic Beanstalk returns InvalidParameterValue error.

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Type=string,Version=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Name": "string",
  "Type": "string",
  "Version": "string"
}

--version-label (string)

If this parameter is specified, AWS Elastic Beanstalk deploys the named application version to the environment. If no such application version is found, returns an InvalidParameterValue error.

--template-name (string)

If this parameter is specified, AWS Elastic Beanstalk deploys this configuration template to the environment. If no such configuration template is found, AWS Elastic Beanstalk returns an InvalidParameterValue error.

--solution-stack-name (string)

This specifies the platform version that the environment will run after the environment is updated.

--platform-arn (string)

The ARN of the platform, if used.

--option-settings (list)

If specified, AWS Elastic Beanstalk updates the configuration set associated with the running environment and sets the specified configuration options to the requested value.

Shorthand Syntax:

ResourceName=string,Namespace=string,OptionName=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "ResourceName": "string",
    "Namespace": "string",
    "OptionName": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--options-to-remove (list)

A list of custom user-defined configuration options to remove from the configuration set for this environment.

Shorthand Syntax:

ResourceName=string,Namespace=string,OptionName=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "ResourceName": "string",
    "Namespace": "string",
    "OptionName": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string 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.

Examples

To update an environment to a new version

The following command updates an environment named "my-env" to version "v2" of the application to which it belongs:

aws elasticbeanstalk update-environment --environment-name my-env --version-label v2

This command requires that the "my-env" environment already exists and belongs to an application that has a valid application version with the label "v2".

Output:

{
  "ApplicationName": "my-app",
  "EnvironmentName": "my-env",
  "VersionLabel": "v2",
  "Status": "Updating",
  "EnvironmentId": "e-szqipays4h",
  "EndpointURL": "awseb-e-i-AWSEBLoa-1RDLX6TC9VUAO-0123456789.us-west-2.elb.amazonaws.com",
  "SolutionStackName": "64bit Amazon Linux running Tomcat 7",
  "CNAME": "my-env.elasticbeanstalk.com",
  "Health": "Grey",
  "Tier": {
      "Version": " ",
      "Type": "Standard",
      "Name": "WebServer"
  },
  "DateUpdated": "2015-02-03T23:12:29.119Z",
  "DateCreated": "2015-02-03T23:04:54.453Z"
}

To set an environment variable

The following command sets the value of the "PARAM1" variable in the "my-env" environment to "ParamValue":

aws elasticbeanstalk update-environment --environment-name my-env --option-settings Namespace=aws:elasticbeanstalk:application:environment,OptionName=PARAM1,Value=ParamValue

The option-settings parameter takes a namespace in addition to the name and value of the variable. Elastic Beanstalk supports several namespaces for options in addition to environment variables.

To configure option settings from a file

The following command configures several options in the aws:elb:loadbalancer namespace from a file:

aws elasticbeanstalk update-environment --environment-name my-env --option-settings file://options.json

options.json is a JSON object defining several settings:

[
  {
    "Namespace": "aws:elb:healthcheck",
    "OptionName": "Interval",
    "Value": "15"
  },
  {
    "Namespace": "aws:elb:healthcheck",
    "OptionName": "Timeout",
    "Value": "8"
  },
  {
    "Namespace": "aws:elb:healthcheck",
    "OptionName": "HealthyThreshold",
    "Value": "2"
  },
  {
    "Namespace": "aws:elb:healthcheck",
    "OptionName": "UnhealthyThreshold",
    "Value": "3"
  }
]

Output:

{
    "ApplicationName": "my-app",
    "EnvironmentName": "my-env",
    "VersionLabel": "7f58-stage-150812_025409",
    "Status": "Updating",
    "EnvironmentId": "e-wtp2rpqsej",
    "EndpointURL": "awseb-e-w-AWSEBLoa-14XB83101Q4L-104QXY80921.sa-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com",
    "SolutionStackName": "64bit Amazon Linux 2015.03 v2.0.0 running Tomcat 8 Java 8",
    "CNAME": "my-env.elasticbeanstalk.com",
    "Health": "Grey",
    "AbortableOperationInProgress": true,
    "Tier": {
        "Version": " ",
        "Type": "Standard",
        "Name": "WebServer"
    },
    "DateUpdated": "2015-08-12T18:15:23.804Z",
    "DateCreated": "2015-08-07T20:48:49.599Z"
}
