You can use UpdateInstanceCustomHealthStatus to change the status only for custom health checks, which you define using HealthCheckCustomConfig when you create a service. You can't use it to change the status for Route 53 health checks, which you define using HealthCheckConfig .

For more information, see HealthCheckCustomConfig .

--service-id <value>

[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--service-id (string)

The ID of the service that includes the configuration for the custom health check that you want to change the status for.

--instance-id (string)

The ID of the instance that you want to change the health status for.

--status (string)

The new status of the instance, HEALTHY or UNHEALTHY .

Possible values:


--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.
