Step 2: Update your Amazon ECS application - AWS CodeDeploy

Step 2: Update your Amazon ECS application

In this section, you update your Amazon ECS application to use a new revision of its task definition. You create the new revision and add a minor update to it by adding a tag.

To update your task definition

  1. Open the Amazon ECS console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ecs/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Task Definitions.

  3. Select the check box for the task definition used by your Amazon ECS service.

  4. Choose Create new revision.

  5. Make a small update to the task definition by adding a tag. At the bottom of the page, in Tags, create a new tag by entering a new key and value pair.

  6. Choose Create. You should see that your task definition's revision number has been incremented by one.

  7. Choose the JSON tab. Make a note of the value for taskDefinitionArn. Its format is arn:aws:ecs:aws-region: account-id:task-definition/task-definition-family: task-definition-revision. This is the ARN of your updated task definition.
