-StackId <String>
-AppId <String>
-InstanceId <String[]>
-Comment <String>
-CustomJson <String>
-Command_Arg <Hashtable>
-LayerId <String[]>
-Command_Name <DeploymentCommandName>

Description

Runs deployment or stack commands. For more information, see Deploying Apps and Run Stack Commands. Required Permissions: To use this action, an IAM user must have a Deploy or Manage permissions level for the stack, or an attached policy that explicitly grants permissions. For more information on user permissions, see Managing User Permissions.

Parameters

-AppId <String>
The app ID. This parameter is required for app deployments, but not for other deployment commands.
Required?False
Position?2
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Command_Arg <Hashtable>
The arguments of those commands that take arguments. It should be set to a JSON object with the following format:{"arg_name1" : ["value1", "value2", ...], "arg_name2" : ["value1", "value2", ...], ...}The update_dependencies command takes two arguments:
  • upgrade_os_to - Specifies the desired Amazon Linux version for instances whose OS you want to upgrade, such as Amazon Linux 2016.09. You must also set the allow_reboot argument to true.
  • allow_reboot - Specifies whether to allow AWS OpsWorks Stacks to reboot the instances if necessary, after installing the updates. This argument can be set to either true or false. The default value is false.
For example, to upgrade an instance to Amazon Linux 2016.09, set Args to the following. { "upgrade_os_to":["Amazon Linux 2016.09"], "allow_reboot":["true"] }
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Command_Name <DeploymentCommandName>
Specifies the operation. You can specify only one command.For stacks, the following commands are available:
  • execute_recipes: Execute one or more recipes. To specify the recipes, set an Args parameter named recipes to the list of recipes to be executed. For example, to execute phpapp::appsetup, set Args to {"recipes":["phpapp::appsetup"]}.
  • install_dependencies: Install the stack's dependencies.
  • update_custom_cookbooks: Update the stack's custom cookbooks.
  • update_dependencies: Update the stack's dependencies.
The update_dependencies and install_dependencies commands are supported only for Linux instances. You can run the commands successfully on Windows instances, but they do nothing.For apps, the following commands are available:
  • deploy: Deploy an app. Ruby on Rails apps have an optional Args parameter named migrate. Set Args to {"migrate":["true"]} to migrate the database. The default setting is {"migrate":["false"]}.
  • rollback Roll the app back to the previous version. When you update an app, AWS OpsWorks Stacks stores the previous version, up to a maximum of five versions. You can use this command to roll an app back as many as four versions.
  • start: Start the app's web or application server.
  • stop: Stop the app's web or application server.
  • restart: Restart the app's web or application server.
  • undeploy: Undeploy the app.

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named

-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.

Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the StackId parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a String object. The service call response (type Amazon.OpsWorks.Model.CreateDeploymentResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
