User Guide

First time using the AWS CLI? See the User Guide for help getting started.

Note: You are viewing the documentation for an older major version of the AWS CLI (version 1).

AWS CLI version 2, the latest major version of AWS CLI, is now stable and recommended for general use. To view this page for the AWS CLI version 2, click here. For more information see the AWS CLI version 2 installation instructions and migration guide.

[ aws . batch ]



Updates an AWS Batch compute environment.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--compute-environment <value>
[--state <value>]
[--compute-resources <value>]
[--service-role <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--compute-environment (string)

The name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the compute environment to update.

--state (string)

The state of the compute environment. Compute environments in the ENABLED state can accept jobs from a queue and scale in or out automatically based on the workload demand of its associated queues.

Possible values:


--compute-resources (structure)

Details of the compute resources managed by the compute environment. Required for a managed compute environment.

minvCpus -> (integer)

The minimum number of Amazon EC2 vCPUs that an environment should maintain.

maxvCpus -> (integer)

The maximum number of Amazon EC2 vCPUs that an environment can reach.

desiredvCpus -> (integer)

The desired number of Amazon EC2 vCPUS in the compute environment.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "minvCpus": integer,
  "maxvCpus": integer,
  "desiredvCpus": integer

--service-role (string)

The full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that allows AWS Batch to make calls to other AWS services on your behalf.

If your specified role has a path other than / , then you must either specify the full role ARN (this is recommended) or prefix the role name with the path.


Depending on how you created your AWS Batch service role, its ARN may contain the service-role path prefix. When you only specify the name of the service role, AWS Batch assumes that your ARN does not use the service-role path prefix. Because of this, we recommend that you specify the full ARN of your service role when you create compute environments.

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


To update a compute environment

This example disables the P2OnDemand compute environment so it can be deleted.


aws batch update-compute-environment --compute-environment P2OnDemand --state DISABLED


    "computeEnvironmentName": "P2OnDemand",
    "computeEnvironmentArn": "arn:aws:batch:us-east-1:012345678910:compute-environment/P2OnDemand"


computeEnvironmentName -> (string)

The name of the compute environment.

computeEnvironmentArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the compute environment.
