update-service

Description

Modifies the parameters of a service.

For services using the rolling update (ECS ) deployment controller, the desired count, deployment configuration, network configuration, or task definition used can be updated.

For services using the blue/green (CODE_DEPLOY ) deployment controller, only the desired count, deployment configuration, and health check grace period can be updated using this API. If the network configuration, platform version, or task definition need to be updated, a new AWS CodeDeploy deployment should be created. For more information, see CreateDeployment in the AWS CodeDeploy API Reference .

For services using an external deployment controller, you can update only the desired count and health check grace period using this API. If the launch type, load balancer, network configuration, platform version, or task definition need to be updated, you should create a new task set. For more information, see CreateTaskSet .

You can add to or subtract from the number of instantiations of a task definition in a service by specifying the cluster that the service is running in and a new desiredCount parameter.

If you have updated the Docker image of your application, you can create a new task definition with that image and deploy it to your service. The service scheduler uses the minimum healthy percent and maximum percent parameters (in the service's deployment configuration) to determine the deployment strategy.

Note

If your updated Docker image uses the same tag as what is in the existing task definition for your service (for example, my_image:latest ), you do not need to create a new revision of your task definition. You can update the service using the forceNewDeployment option. The new tasks launched by the deployment pull the current image/tag combination from your repository when they start.

You can also update the deployment configuration of a service. When a deployment is triggered by updating the task definition of a service, the service scheduler uses the deployment configuration parameters, minimumHealthyPercent and maximumPercent , to determine the deployment strategy.

  • If minimumHealthyPercent is below 100%, the scheduler can ignore desiredCount temporarily during a deployment. For example, if desiredCount is four tasks, a minimum of 50% allows the scheduler to stop two existing tasks before starting two new tasks. Tasks for services that do not use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state. Tasks for services that use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state and the container instance they are hosted on is reported as healthy by the load balancer.
  • The maximumPercent parameter represents an upper limit on the number of running tasks during a deployment, which enables you to define the deployment batch size. For example, if desiredCount is four tasks, a maximum of 200% starts four new tasks before stopping the four older tasks (provided that the cluster resources required to do this are available).

When UpdateService stops a task during a deployment, the equivalent of docker stop is issued to the containers running in the task. This results in a SIGTERM and a 30-second timeout, after which SIGKILL is sent and the containers are forcibly stopped. If the container handles the SIGTERM gracefully and exits within 30 seconds from receiving it, no SIGKILL is sent.

When the service scheduler launches new tasks, it determines task placement in your cluster with the following logic:

  • Determine which of the container instances in your cluster can support your service's task definition (for example, they have the required CPU, memory, ports, and container instance attributes).
  • By default, the service scheduler attempts to balance tasks across Availability Zones in this manner (although you can choose a different placement strategy):
    • Sort the valid container instances by the fewest number of running tasks for this service in the same Availability Zone as the instance. For example, if zone A has one running service task and zones B and C each have zero, valid container instances in either zone B or C are considered optimal for placement.
    • Place the new service task on a valid container instance in an optimal Availability Zone (based on the previous steps), favoring container instances with the fewest number of running tasks for this service.

When the service scheduler stops running tasks, it attempts to maintain balance across the Availability Zones in your cluster using the following logic:

  • Sort the container instances by the largest number of running tasks for this service in the same Availability Zone as the instance. For example, if zone A has one running service task and zones B and C each have two, container instances in either zone B or C are considered optimal for termination.
  • Stop the task on a container instance in an optimal Availability Zone (based on the previous steps), favoring container instances with the largest number of running tasks for this service.

Options

--cluster (string)

The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster that your service is running on. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.

--service (string)

The name of the service to update.

--desired-count (integer)

The number of instantiations of the task to place and keep running in your service.

--task-definition (string)

The family and revision (family:revision ) or full ARN of the task definition to run in your service. If a revision is not specified, the latest ACTIVE revision is used. If you modify the task definition with UpdateService , Amazon ECS spawns a task with the new version of the task definition and then stops an old task after the new version is running.

--deployment-configuration (structure)

Optional deployment parameters that control how many tasks run during the deployment and the ordering of stopping and starting tasks.

Shorthand Syntax:

maximumPercent=integer,minimumHealthyPercent=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "maximumPercent": integer,
  "minimumHealthyPercent": integer
}

--network-configuration (structure)

The network configuration for the service. This parameter is required for task definitions that use the awsvpc network mode to receive their own elastic network interface, and it is not supported for other network modes. For more information, see Task Networking in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide .

Note

Updating a service to add a subnet to a list of existing subnets does not trigger a service deployment. For example, if your network configuration change is to keep the existing subnets and simply add another subnet to the network configuration, this does not trigger a new service deployment.

Shorthand Syntax:

awsvpcConfiguration={subnets=[string,string],securityGroups=[string,string],assignPublicIp=string}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "awsvpcConfiguration": {
    "subnets": ["string", ...],
    "securityGroups": ["string", ...],
    "assignPublicIp": "ENABLED"|"DISABLED"
  }
}

--platform-version (string)

The platform version on which your tasks in the service are running. A platform version is only specified for tasks using the Fargate launch type. If one is not specified, the LATEST platform version is used by default. For more information, see AWS Fargate Platform Versions in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide .

--force-new-deployment | --no-force-new-deployment (boolean)

Whether to force a new deployment of the service. Deployments are not forced by default. You can use this option to trigger a new deployment with no service definition changes. For example, you can update a service's tasks to use a newer Docker image with the same image/tag combination (my_image:latest ) or to roll Fargate tasks onto a newer platform version.

--health-check-grace-period-seconds (integer)

The period of time, in seconds, that the Amazon ECS service scheduler should ignore unhealthy Elastic Load Balancing target health checks after a task has first started. This is only valid if your service is configured to use a load balancer. If your service's tasks take a while to start and respond to Elastic Load Balancing health checks, you can specify a health check grace period of up to 1,800 seconds. During that time, the ECS service scheduler ignores the Elastic Load Balancing health check status. This grace period can prevent the ECS service scheduler from marking tasks as unhealthy and stopping them before they have time to come up.

--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.

For more information, see Updating a Service in the Amazon ECS Developer Guide.

Output

service -> (structure)

The full description of your service following the update call.

serviceArn -> (string)

The ARN that identifies the service. The ARN contains the arn:aws:ecs namespace, followed by the Region of the service, the AWS account ID of the service owner, the service namespace, and then the service name. For example, arn:aws:ecs:region:012345678910:service/my-service .

serviceName -> (string)

The name of your service. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, and hyphens are allowed. Service names must be unique within a cluster, but you can have similarly named services in multiple clusters within a Region or across multiple Regions.

clusterArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster that hosts the service.

loadBalancers -> (list)

A list of Elastic Load Balancing load balancer objects, containing the load balancer name, the container name (as it appears in a container definition), and the container port to access from the load balancer.

Services with tasks that use the awsvpc network mode (for example, those with the Fargate launch type) only support Application Load Balancers and Network Load Balancers. Classic Load Balancers are not supported. Also, when you create any target groups for these services, you must choose ip as the target type, not instance . Tasks that use the awsvpc network mode are associated with an elastic network interface, not an Amazon EC2 instance.

(structure)

Details on a load balancer to be used with a service or task set.

If the service is using the ECS deployment controller, you are limited to one load balancer or target group.

If the service is using the CODE_DEPLOY deployment controller, the service is required to use either an Application Load Balancer or Network Load Balancer. When you are creating an AWS CodeDeploy deployment group, you specify two target groups (referred to as a targetGroupPair ). Each target group binds to a separate task set in the deployment. The load balancer can also have up to two listeners, a required listener for production traffic and an optional listener that allows you to test new revisions of the service before routing production traffic to it.

Services with tasks that use the awsvpc network mode (for example, those with the Fargate launch type) only support Application Load Balancers and Network Load Balancers. Classic Load Balancers are not supported. Also, when you create any target groups for these services, you must choose ip as the target type, not instance . Tasks that use the awsvpc network mode are associated with an elastic network interface, not an Amazon EC2 instance.

targetGroupArn -> (string)

The full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Elastic Load Balancing target group or groups associated with a service or task set.

A target group ARN is only specified when using an application load balancer or a network load balancer. If you are using a classic load balancer this should be omitted.

For services using the ECS deployment controller, you are limited to one target group. For services using the CODE_DEPLOY deployment controller, you are required to define two target groups for the load balancer.

Warning

If your service's task definition uses the awsvpc network mode (which is required for the Fargate launch type), you must choose ip as the target type, not instance , because tasks that use the awsvpc network mode are associated with an elastic network interface, not an Amazon EC2 instance.

loadBalancerName -> (string)

The name of the load balancer to associate with the Amazon ECS service or task set.

A load balancer name is only specified when using a classic load balancer. If you are using an application load balancer or a network load balancer this should be omitted.

containerName -> (string)

The name of the container (as it appears in a container definition) to associate with the load balancer.

containerPort -> (integer)

The port on the container to associate with the load balancer. This port must correspond to a containerPort in the service's task definition. Your container instances must allow ingress traffic on the hostPort of the port mapping.

serviceRegistries -> (list)

The details of the service discovery registries to assign to this service. For more information, see Service Discovery .

(structure)

Details of the service registry.

registryArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the service registry. The currently supported service registry is AWS Cloud Map. For more information, see CreateService .

port -> (integer)

The port value used if your service discovery service specified an SRV record. This field may be used if both the awsvpc network mode and SRV records are used.

containerName -> (string)

The container name value, already specified in the task definition, to be used for your service discovery service. If the task definition that your service task specifies uses the bridge or host network mode, you must specify a containerName and containerPort combination from the task definition. If the task definition that your service task specifies uses the awsvpc network mode and a type SRV DNS record is used, you must specify either a containerName and containerPort combination or a port value, but not both.

containerPort -> (integer)

The port value, already specified in the task definition, to be used for your service discovery service. If the task definition your service task specifies uses the bridge or host network mode, you must specify a containerName and containerPort combination from the task definition. If the task definition your service task specifies uses the awsvpc network mode and a type SRV DNS record is used, you must specify either a containerName and containerPort combination or a port value, but not both.

status -> (string)

The status of the service. The valid values are ACTIVE , DRAINING , or INACTIVE .

desiredCount -> (integer)

The desired number of instantiations of the task definition to keep running on the service. This value is specified when the service is created with CreateService , and it can be modified with UpdateService .

runningCount -> (integer)

The number of tasks in the cluster that are in the RUNNING state.

pendingCount -> (integer)

The number of tasks in the cluster that are in the PENDING state.

launchType -> (string)

The launch type on which your service is running. If no value is specified, it will default to EC2 . Valid values include EC2 and FARGATE . For more information, see Amazon ECS Launch Types in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide .

platformVersion -> (string)

The platform version on which to run your service. A platform version is only specified for tasks using the Fargate launch type. If one is not specified, the LATEST platform version is used by default. For more information, see AWS Fargate Platform Versions in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide .

taskDefinition -> (string)

The task definition to use for tasks in the service. This value is specified when the service is created with CreateService , and it can be modified with UpdateService .

deploymentConfiguration -> (structure)

Optional deployment parameters that control how many tasks run during the deployment and the ordering of stopping and starting tasks.

maximumPercent -> (integer)

If a service is using the rolling update (ECS ) deployment type, the maximum percent parameter represents an upper limit on the number of tasks in a service that are allowed in the RUNNING or PENDING state during a deployment, as a percentage of the desired number of tasks (rounded down to the nearest integer), and while any container instances are in the DRAINING state if the service contains tasks using the EC2 launch type. This parameter enables you to define the deployment batch size. For example, if your service has a desired number of four tasks and a maximum percent value of 200%, the scheduler may start four new tasks before stopping the four older tasks (provided that the cluster resources required to do this are available). The default value for maximum percent is 200%.

If a service is using the blue/green (CODE_DEPLOY ) or EXTERNAL deployment types and tasks that use the EC2 launch type, the maximum percent value is set to the default value and is used to define the upper limit on the number of the tasks in the service that remain in the RUNNING state while the container instances are in the DRAINING state. If the tasks in the service use the Fargate launch type, the maximum percent value is not used, although it is returned when describing your service.

minimumHealthyPercent -> (integer)

If a service is using the rolling update (ECS ) deployment type, the minimum healthy percent represents a lower limit on the number of tasks in a service that must remain in the RUNNING state during a deployment, as a percentage of the desired number of tasks (rounded up to the nearest integer), and while any container instances are in the DRAINING state if the service contains tasks using the EC2 launch type. This parameter enables you to deploy without using additional cluster capacity. For example, if your service has a desired number of four tasks and a minimum healthy percent of 50%, the scheduler may stop two existing tasks to free up cluster capacity before starting two new tasks. Tasks for services that do not use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state; tasks for services that do use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state and they are reported as healthy by the load balancer. The default value for minimum healthy percent is 100%.

If a service is using the blue/green (CODE_DEPLOY ) or EXTERNAL deployment types and tasks that use the EC2 launch type, the minimum healthy percent value is set to the default value and is used to define the lower limit on the number of the tasks in the service that remain in the RUNNING state while the container instances are in the DRAINING state. If the tasks in the service use the Fargate launch type, the minimum healthy percent value is not used, although it is returned when describing your service.

The subnets associated with the task or service. There is a limit of 16 subnets that can be specified per AwsVpcConfiguration .

Note

All specified subnets must be from the same VPC.

(string)

securityGroups -> (list)

The security groups associated with the task or service. If you do not specify a security group, the default security group for the VPC is used. There is a limit of 5 security groups that can be specified per AwsVpcConfiguration .

Note

All specified security groups must be from the same VPC.

(string)

assignPublicIp -> (string)

Whether the task's elastic network interface receives a public IP address. The default value is DISABLED .

healthCheckGracePeriodSeconds -> (integer)

The period of time, in seconds, that the Amazon ECS service scheduler ignores unhealthy Elastic Load Balancing target health checks after a task has first started.

schedulingStrategy -> (string)

The scheduling strategy to use for the service. For more information, see Services .

There are two service scheduler strategies available:

  • REPLICA -The replica scheduling strategy places and maintains the desired number of tasks across your cluster. By default, the service scheduler spreads tasks across Availability Zones. You can use task placement strategies and constraints to customize task placement decisions.
  • DAEMON -The daemon scheduling strategy deploys exactly one task on each container instance in your cluster. When you are using this strategy, do not specify a desired number of tasks or any task placement strategies.

Note

Fargate tasks do not support the DAEMON scheduling strategy.

deploymentController -> (structure)

The deployment controller type the service is using.

type -> (string)

The deployment controller type to use.

There are three deployment controller types available:

ECS

The rolling update (ECS ) deployment type involves replacing the current running version of the container with the latest version. The number of containers Amazon ECS adds or removes from the service during a rolling update is controlled by adjusting the minimum and maximum number of healthy tasks allowed during a service deployment, as specified in the DeploymentConfiguration .

CODE_DEPLOY

The blue/green (CODE_DEPLOY ) deployment type uses the blue/green deployment model powered by AWS CodeDeploy, which allows you to verify a new deployment of a service before sending production traffic to it.

EXTERNAL

The external (EXTERNAL ) deployment type enables you to use any third-party deployment controller for full control over the deployment process for an Amazon ECS service.

tags -> (list)

The metadata that you apply to the service to help you categorize and organize them. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define. Tag keys can have a maximum character length of 128 characters, and tag values can have a maximum length of 256 characters.

(structure)

The metadata that you apply to a resource to help you categorize and organize them. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define. Tag keys can have a maximum character length of 128 characters, and tag values can have a maximum length of 256 characters.

key -> (string)

One part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

value -> (string)

The optional part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

createdBy -> (string)

The principal that created the service.

enableECSManagedTags -> (boolean)

Specifies whether to enable Amazon ECS managed tags for the tasks in the service. For more information, see Tagging Your Amazon ECS Resources in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide .

propagateTags -> (string)

Specifies whether to propagate the tags from the task definition or the service to the task. If no value is specified, the tags are not propagated.
