Example Task Definitions

Below are some task definition examples that you can use to start creating your own task definitions. For more information, see Task Definition Parameters and Creating a Task Definition.


    Example: Webserver

    The following is an example task definition using the Fargate launch type that sets up a web server:

    { "containerDefinitions": [ { "command": [ "/bin/sh -c \"echo '<html> <head> <title>Amazon ECS Sample App</title> <style>body {margin-top: 40px; background-color: #333;} </style> </head><body> <div style=color:white;text-align:center> <h1>Amazon ECS Sample App</h1> <h2>Congratulations!</h2> <p>Your application is now running on a container in Amazon ECS.</p> </div></body></html>' > /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/index.html && httpd-foreground\"" ], "entryPoint": [ "sh", "-c" ], "essential": true, "image": "httpd:2.4", "logConfiguration": { "logDriver": "awslogs", "options": { "awslogs-group" : "/ecs/fargate-task-definition", "awslogs-region": "us-east-1", "awslogs-stream-prefix": "ecs" } }, "name": "sample-fargate-app", "portMappings": [ { "containerPort": 80, "hostPort": 80, "protocol": "tcp" } ] } ], "cpu": "256", "executionRoleArn": "arn:aws:iam::012345678910:role/ecsTaskExecutionRole", "family": "fargate-task-definition", "memory": "512", "networkMode": "awsvpc", "requiresCompatibilities": [ "FARGATE" ] }


    If you use this task definition with a load balancer, you need to complete the WordPress setup installation through the web interface on the container instance immediately after the container starts. The load balancer health check ping expects a 200 response from the server, but WordPress returns a 301 until the installation is completed. If the load balancer health check fails, the load balancer deregisters the instance.

    Example: awslogs Log Driver

    The following example demonstrates how to use the awslogs log driver in a task definition that uses the Fargate launch type. The nginx container sends its logs to the ecs-log-streaming log group in the us-west-2 region. For more information, see Using the awslogs Log Driver.

    { "containerDefinitions": [ { "memory": 128, "portMappings": [ { "hostPort": 80, "containerPort": 80, "protocol": "tcp" } ], "essential": true, "name": "nginx-container", "image": "nginx", "logConfiguration": { "logDriver": "awslogs", "options": { "awslogs-group": "ecs-log-streaming", "awslogs-region": "us-west-2", "awslogs-stream-prefix": "fargate-task-1" } }, "cpu": 0 } ], "networkMode": "awsvpc", "executionRoleArn": "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/ecsTaskExecutionRole", "memory": "2048", "cpu": "1024", "requiresCompatibilities": [ "FARGATE" ], "family": "example_task_1" }
