AWS::DataSync::Task - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::DataSync::Task

The AWS::DataSync::Task resource specifies a task. A task is a set of two locations (source and destination) and a set of Options that you use to control the behavior of a task. If you don't specify Options when you create a task, AWS DataSync populates them with service defaults.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:
