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 a job queue.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--job-queue <value>
[--state <value>]
[--priority <value>]
[--compute-environment-order <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--job-queue (string)

The name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the job queue.

--state (string)

Describes the queue's ability to accept new jobs.

Possible values:


--priority (integer)

The priority of the job queue. Job queues with a higher priority (or a higher integer value for the priority parameter) are evaluated first when associated with the same compute environment. Priority is determined in descending order, for example, a job queue with a priority value of 10 is given scheduling preference over a job queue with a priority value of 1 .

--compute-environment-order (list)

Details the set of compute environments mapped to a job queue and their order relative to each other. This is one of the parameters used by the job scheduler to determine which compute environment should execute a given job.


The order in which compute environments are tried for job placement within a queue. Compute environments are tried in ascending order. For example, if two compute environments are associated with a job queue, the compute environment with a lower order integer value is tried for job placement first.

order -> (integer)

The order of the compute environment.

computeEnvironment -> (string)

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

Shorthand Syntax:

order=integer,computeEnvironment=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "order": integer,
    "computeEnvironment": "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. 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 job queue

This example disables a job queue so that it can be deleted.


aws batch update-job-queue --job-queue GPGPU --state DISABLED


    "jobQueueArn": "arn:aws:batch:us-east-1:012345678910:job-queue/GPGPU",
    "jobQueueName": "GPGPU"


jobQueueName -> (string)

The name of the job queue.

jobQueueArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the job queue.
