[ aws . servicediscovery ]



Submits a request to perform the following operations:

  • Add or delete DnsRecords configurations
  • Update the TTL setting for existing DnsRecords configurations
  • Add, update, or delete HealthCheckConfig for a specified service

For public and private DNS namespaces, you must specify all DnsRecords configurations (and, optionally, HealthCheckConfig ) that you want to appear in the updated service. Any current configurations that don't appear in an UpdateService request are deleted.

When you update the TTL setting for a service, AWS Cloud Map also updates the corresponding settings in all the records and health checks that were created by using the specified service.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--id (string)

The ID of the service that you want to update.

--service (structure)

A complex type that contains the new settings for the service.

JSON Syntax:

  "Description": "string",
  "DnsConfig": {
    "DnsRecords": [
        "Type": "SRV"|"A"|"AAAA"|"CNAME",
        "TTL": long
  "HealthCheckConfig": {
    "Type": "HTTP"|"HTTPS"|"TCP",
    "ResourcePath": "string",
    "FailureThreshold": integer

--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.


OperationId -> (string)

A value that you can use to determine whether the request completed successfully. To get the status of the operation, see GetOperation .
