--deployment-group-name (string)

The name of the deployment group.

--revision (structure)

The type and location of the revision to deploy.

revisionType -> (string)

The type of application revision:

  • S3: An application revision stored in Amazon S3.
  • GitHub: An application revision stored in GitHub (EC2/On-premises deployments only).
  • String: A YAML-formatted or JSON-formatted string (AWS Lambda deployments only).
  • AppSpecContent: An AppSpecContent object that contains the contents of an AppSpec file for an AWS Lambda or Amazon ECS deployment. The content is formatted as JSON or YAML stored as a RawString.

s3Location -> (structure)

Information about the location of a revision stored in Amazon S3.

bucket -> (string)

The name of the Amazon S3 bucket where the application revision is stored.

key -> (string)

The name of the Amazon S3 object that represents the bundled artifacts for the application revision.

bundleType -> (string)

The file type of the application revision. Must be one of the following:

  • tar : A tar archive file.
  • tgz : A compressed tar archive file.
  • zip : A zip archive file.

version -> (string)

A specific version of the Amazon S3 object that represents the bundled artifacts for the application revision.

If the version is not specified, the system uses the most recent version by default.

eTag -> (string)

The ETag of the Amazon S3 object that represents the bundled artifacts for the application revision.

If the ETag is not specified as an input parameter, ETag validation of the object is skipped.

gitHubLocation -> (structure)

Information about the location of application artifacts stored in GitHub.

repository -> (string)

The GitHub account and repository pair that stores a reference to the commit that represents the bundled artifacts for the application revision.

Specified as account/repository.

commitId -> (string)

The SHA1 commit ID of the GitHub commit that represents the bundled artifacts for the application revision.

string -> (structure)

Information about the location of an AWS Lambda deployment revision stored as a RawString.

content -> (string)

The YAML-formatted or JSON-formatted revision string. It includes information about which Lambda function to update and optional Lambda functions that validate deployment lifecycle events.

content -> (string)

The YAML-formatted or JSON-formatted revision string.

For an AWS Lambda deployment, the content includes a Lambda function name, the alias for its original version, and the alias for its replacement version. The deployment shifts traffic from the original version of the Lambda function to the replacement version.

For an Amazon ECS deployment, the content includes the task name, information about the load balancer that serves traffic to the container, and more.

For both types of deployments, the content can specify Lambda functions that run at specified hooks, such as BeforeInstall , during a deployment.

sha256 -> (string)

The SHA256 hash value of the revision content.

Shorthand Syntax:

revisionType=string,s3Location={bucket=string,key=string,bundleType=string,version=string,eTag=string},gitHubLocation={repository=string,commitId=string},string={content=string,sha256=string},appSpecContent={content=string,sha256=string}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "revisionType": "S3"|"GitHub"|"String"|"AppSpecContent",
  "s3Location": {
    "bucket": "string",
    "key": "string",
    "bundleType": "tar"|"tgz"|"zip"|"YAML"|"JSON",
    "version": "string",
    "eTag": "string"
  },
  "gitHubLocation": {
    "repository": "string",
    "commitId": "string"
  },
  "string": {
    "content": "string",
    "sha256": "string"
  },
  "appSpecContent": {
    "content": "string",
    "sha256": "string"
  }
}

--deployment-config-name (string)

The name of a deployment configuration associated with the IAM user or AWS account.

If not specified, the value configured in the deployment group is used as the default. If the deployment group does not have a deployment configuration associated with it, CodeDeployDefault .``OneAtATime`` is used by default.

--description (string)

A comment about the deployment.

--ignore-application-stop-failures | --no-ignore-application-stop-failures (boolean)

If true, then if an ApplicationStop , BeforeBlockTraffic , or AfterBlockTraffic deployment lifecycle event to an instance fails, then the deployment continues to the next deployment lifecycle event. For example, if ApplicationStop fails, the deployment continues with DownloadBundle . If BeforeBlockTraffic fails, the deployment continues with BlockTraffic . If AfterBlockTraffic fails, the deployment continues with ApplicationStop .

If false or not specified, then if a lifecycle event fails during a deployment to an instance, that deployment fails. If deployment to that instance is part of an overall deployment and the number of healthy hosts is not less than the minimum number of healthy hosts, then a deployment to the next instance is attempted.

During a deployment, the AWS CodeDeploy agent runs the scripts specified for ApplicationStop , BeforeBlockTraffic , and AfterBlockTraffic in the AppSpec file from the previous successful deployment. (All other scripts are run from the AppSpec file in the current deployment.) If one of these scripts contains an error and does not run successfully, the deployment can fail.

If the cause of the failure is a script from the last successful deployment that will never run successfully, create a new deployment and use ignoreApplicationStopFailures to specify that the ApplicationStop , BeforeBlockTraffic , and AfterBlockTraffic failures should be ignored.

--target-instances (structure)

--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.

Examples

Example 1: To create a CodeDeploy deployment using the EC2/On-premises compute platform

The following create-deployment example creates a deployment and associates it with the user's AWS account.

aws deploy create-deployment \
    --application-name WordPress_App \
    --deployment-config-name CodeDeployDefault.OneAtATime \
    --deployment-group-name WordPress_DG \
    --description "My demo deployment" \
    --s3-location bucket=CodeDeployDemoBucket,bundleType=zip,eTag=dd56cfdEXAMPLE8e768f9d77fEXAMPLE,key=WordPressApp.zip

Output:

{
    "deploymentId": "d-A1B2C3111"
}

Example 2: To create a CodeDeploy deployment using the Amazon ECS compute platform

The following create-deployment example uses the following two files to deploy an Amazon ECS service.

Contents of create-deployment.json file:

{
    "applicationName": "ecs-deployment",
    "deploymentGroupName": "ecs-deployment-dg",
    "revision": {
        "revisionType": "S3",
        "s3Location": {
            "bucket": "ecs-deployment-bucket",
            "key": "appspec.yaml",
            "bundleType": "YAML"
        }
    }
}

That file, in turn, retrieves the following file appspec.yaml from an S3 bucket called ecs-deployment-bucket.

version: 0.0
Resources:
  - TargetService:
      Type: AWS::ECS::Service
      Properties:
        TaskDefinition: "arn:aws:ecs:region:123456789012:task-definition/ecs-task-def:2"
        LoadBalancerInfo:
          ContainerName: "sample-app"
          ContainerPort: 80
        PlatformVersion: "LATEST"

Command:

aws deploy create-deployment \
    --cli-input-json file://create-deployment.json \
    --region us-east-1

Output:

{
    "deploymentId": "d-1234ABCDE"
}

For more information, see CreateDeployment in the AWS CodeDeploy API Reference.

Output

deploymentId -> (string)

The unique ID of a deployment.
