update-service

Description

Submits a request to perform the following operations:

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

Note

You can't add, update, or delete a HealthCheckCustomConfig configuration.

For public and private DNS namespaces, note the following:

  • If you omit any existing DnsRecords or HealthCheckConfig configurations from an UpdateService request, the configurations are deleted from the service.
  • If you omit an existing HealthCheckCustomConfig configuration from an UpdateService request, the configuration is not deleted from the service.

When you update settings 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.

Synopsis

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

Options

--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.

Description -> (string)

A description for the service.

DnsConfig -> (structure)

A complex type that contains information about the Route 53 DNS records that you want AWS Cloud Map to create when you register an instance.

DnsRecords -> (list)

An array that contains one DnsRecord object for each Route 53 record that you want AWS Cloud Map to create when you register an instance.

(structure)

A complex type that contains information about the Route 53 DNS records that you want AWS Cloud Map to create when you register an instance.

Type -> (string)

The type of the resource, which indicates the type of value that Route 53 returns in response to DNS queries. You can specify values for Type in the following combinations:

  • A
  • AAAA
  • A and AAAA
  • SRV
  • CNAME

If you want AWS Cloud Map to create a Route 53 alias record when you register an instance, specify A or AAAA for Type .

You specify other settings, such as the IP address for A and AAAA records, when you register an instance. For more information, see RegisterInstance .

The following values are supported:

A ** **

Route 53 returns the IP address of the resource in IPv4 format, such as 192.0.2.44.

AAAA ** **

Route 53 returns the IP address of the resource in IPv6 format, such as 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:abcd:0001:2345.

CNAME ** **

Route 53 returns the domain name of the resource, such as www.example.com. Note the following:

  • You specify the domain name that you want to route traffic to when you register an instance. For more information, see Attributes in the topic RegisterInstance .
  • You must specify WEIGHTED for the value of RoutingPolicy .
  • You can't specify both CNAME for Type and settings for HealthCheckConfig . If you do, the request will fail with an InvalidInput error.
SRV

Route 53 returns the value for an SRV record. The value for an SRV record uses the following values:

priority weight port service-hostname

Note the following about the values:

  • The values of priority and weight are both set to 1 and can't be changed.
  • The value of port comes from the value that you specify for the AWS_INSTANCE_PORT attribute when you submit a RegisterInstance request.
  • The value of service-hostname is a concatenation of the following values:
    • The value that you specify for InstanceId when you register an instance.
    • The name of the service.
    • The name of the namespace.

For example, if the value of InstanceId is test , the name of the service is backend , and the name of the namespace is example.com , the value of service-hostname is:

test.backend.example.com

If you specify settings for an SRV record, note the following:

  • If you specify values for AWS_INSTANCE_IPV4 , AWS_INSTANCE_IPV6 , or both in the RegisterInstance request, AWS Cloud Map automatically creates A and/or AAAA records that have the same name as the value of service-hostname in the SRV record. You can ignore these records.
  • If you're using a system that requires a specific SRV format, such as HAProxy, see the Name element in the documentation about CreateService for information about how to specify the correct name format.

TTL -> (long)

The amount of time, in seconds, that you want DNS resolvers to cache the settings for this record.

Note

Alias records don't include a TTL because Route 53 uses the TTL for the AWS resource that an alias record routes traffic to. If you include the AWS_ALIAS_DNS_NAME attribute when you submit a RegisterInstance request, the TTL value is ignored. Always specify a TTL for the service; you can use a service to register instances that create either alias or non-alias records.

HealthCheckConfig -> (structure)

Public DNS and HTTP namespaces only. A complex type that contains settings for an optional health check. If you specify settings for a health check, AWS Cloud Map associates the health check with the records that you specify in DnsConfig .

Warning

If you specify a health check configuration, you can specify either HealthCheckCustomConfig or HealthCheckConfig but not both.

Health checks are basic Route 53 health checks that monitor an AWS endpoint. For information about pricing for health checks, see Amazon Route 53 Pricing .

Note the following about configuring health checks.

** A and AAAA records**

If DnsConfig includes configurations for both A and AAAA records, AWS Cloud Map creates a health check that uses the IPv4 address to check the health of the resource. If the endpoint that is specified by the IPv4 address is unhealthy, Route 53 considers both the A and AAAA records to be unhealthy.

** CNAME records**

You can't specify settings for HealthCheckConfig when the DNSConfig includes CNAME for the value of Type . If you do, the CreateService request will fail with an InvalidInput error.

Request interval

A Route 53 health checker in each health-checking region sends a health check request to an endpoint every 30 seconds. On average, your endpoint receives a health check request about every two seconds. However, health checkers don't coordinate with one another, so you'll sometimes see several requests per second followed by a few seconds with no health checks at all.

Health checking regions

Health checkers perform checks from all Route 53 health-checking regions. For a list of the current regions, see Regions .

Alias records

When you register an instance, if you include the AWS_ALIAS_DNS_NAME attribute, AWS Cloud Map creates a Route 53 alias record. Note the following:

  • Route 53 automatically sets EvaluateTargetHealth to true for alias records. When EvaluateTargetHealth is true, the alias record inherits the health of the referenced AWS resource. such as an ELB load balancer. For more information, see EvaluateTargetHealth .
  • If you include HealthCheckConfig and then use the service to register an instance that creates an alias record, Route 53 doesn't create the health check.
Charges for health checks

Health checks are basic Route 53 health checks that monitor an AWS endpoint. For information about pricing for health checks, see Amazon Route 53 Pricing .

Type -> (string)

The type of health check that you want to create, which indicates how Route 53 determines whether an endpoint is healthy.

Warning

You can't change the value of Type after you create a health check.

You can create the following types of health checks:

  • HTTP : Route 53 tries to establish a TCP connection. If successful, Route 53 submits an HTTP request and waits for an HTTP status code of 200 or greater and less than 400.
  • HTTPS : Route 53 tries to establish a TCP connection. If successful, Route 53 submits an HTTPS request and waits for an HTTP status code of 200 or greater and less than 400.

Warning

If you specify HTTPS for the value of Type , the endpoint must support TLS v1.0 or later.

  • TCP : Route 53 tries to establish a TCP connection. If you specify TCP for Type , don't specify a value for ResourcePath .

For more information, see How Route 53 Determines Whether an Endpoint Is Healthy in the Route 53 Developer Guide .

ResourcePath -> (string)

The path that you want Route 53 to request when performing health checks. The path can be any value for which your endpoint will return an HTTP status code of 2xx or 3xx when the endpoint is healthy, such as the file /docs/route53-health-check.html . Route 53 automatically adds the DNS name for the service. If you don't specify a value for ResourcePath , the default value is / .

If you specify TCP for Type , you must not specify a value for ResourcePath .

FailureThreshold -> (integer)

The number of consecutive health checks that an endpoint must pass or fail for Route 53 to change the current status of the endpoint from unhealthy to healthy or vice versa. For more information, see How Route 53 Determines Whether an Endpoint Is Healthy in the Route 53 Developer Guide .

--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.
