CreateContainerService - Amazon Lightsail

CreateContainerService

Creates an Amazon Lightsail container service.

A Lightsail container service is a compute resource to which you can deploy containers. For more information, see Container services in Amazon Lightsail in the Lightsail Dev Guide.

Request Syntax

{ "deployment": { "containers": { "string" : { "command": [ "string" ], "environment": { "string" : "string" }, "image": "string", "ports": { "string" : "string" } } }, "publicEndpoint": { "containerName": "string", "containerPort": number, "healthCheck": { "healthyThreshold": number, "intervalSeconds": number, "path": "string", "successCodes": "string", "timeoutSeconds": number, "unhealthyThreshold": number } } }, "power": "string", "publicDomainNames": { "string" : [ "string" ] }, "scale": number, "serviceName": "string", "tags": [ { "key": "string", "value": "string" } ] }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

deployment

An object that describes a deployment for the container service.

A deployment specifies the containers that will be launched on the container service and their settings, such as the ports to open, the environment variables to apply, and the launch command to run. It also specifies the container that will serve as the public endpoint of the deployment and its settings, such as the HTTP or HTTPS port to use, and the health check configuration.

Type: ContainerServiceDeploymentRequest object

Required: No

power

The power specification for the container service.

The power specifies the amount of memory, vCPUs, and base monthly cost of each node of the container service. The power and scale of a container service makes up its configured capacity. To determine the monthly price of your container service, multiply the base price of the power with the scale (the number of nodes) of the service.

Use the GetContainerServicePowers action to get a list of power options that you can specify using this parameter, and their base monthly cost.

Type: String

Valid Values: nano | micro | small | medium | large | xlarge

Required: Yes

publicDomainNames

The public domain names to use with the container service, such as example.com and www.example.com.

You can specify up to four public domain names for a container service. The domain names that you specify are used when you create a deployment with a container configured as the public endpoint of your container service.

If you don't specify public domain names, then you can use the default domain of the container service.

Important

You must create and validate an SSL/TLS certificate before you can use public domain names with your container service. Use the CreateCertificate action to create a certificate for the public domain names you want to use with your container service.

You can specify public domain names using a string to array map as shown in the example later on this page.

Type: String to array of strings map

Required: No

scale

The scale specification for the container service.

The scale specifies the allocated compute nodes of the container service. The power and scale of a container service makes up its configured capacity. To determine the monthly price of your container service, multiply the base price of the power with the scale (the number of nodes) of the service.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 20.

Required: Yes

serviceName

The name for the container service.

The name that you specify for your container service will make up part of its default domain. The default domain of a container service is typically https://<ServiceName>.<RandomGUID>.<AWSRegion>.cs.amazonlightsail.com. If the name of your container service is container-service-1, and it's located in the US East (Ohio) AWS region (us-east-2), then the domain for your container service will be like the following example: https://container-service-1.ur4EXAMPLE2uq.us-east-2.cs.amazonlightsail.com

The following are the requirements for container service names:

  • Must be unique within each AWS Region in your Lightsail account.

  • Must contain 1 to 63 characters.

  • Must contain only alphanumeric characters and hyphens.

  • A hyphen (-) can separate words but cannot be at the start or end of the name.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 63.

Pattern: ^[a-z0-9]{1,2}|[a-z0-9][a-z0-9-]+[a-z0-9]$

Required: Yes

tags

The tag keys and optional values for the container service.

For more information about tags in Lightsail, see the Lightsail Dev Guide.

Type: Array of Tag objects

Required: No

Errors

For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.

AccessDeniedException

Lightsail throws this exception when the user cannot be authenticated or uses invalid credentials to access a resource.

HTTP Status Code: 400

Domain and distribution APIs are only available in the N. Virginia (us-east-1) AWS Region. Please set your AWS Region configuration to us-east-1 to create, view, or edit these resources.

HTTP Status Code: 400

NotFoundException

Lightsail throws this exception when it cannot find a resource.

Examples

In the following example or examples, the Authorization header contents (AUTHPARAMS) must be replaced with an AWS Signature Version 4 signature. For more information about creating these signatures, see Signature Version 4 Signing Process in the AWS General Reference.

You need to learn how to sign HTTP requests only if you intend to manually create them. When you use the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) or one of the AWS SDKs to make requests to AWS, these tools automatically sign the requests for you with the access key that you specify when you configure the tools. When you use these tools, you don't need to learn how to sign requests yourself.

Create container service

The following example creates a new container service named container-service-1 in the us-west-2 AWS Region. It also specifies the example.com, applications.example.com, www.example.com, and containers.example.com public domains of the example-com SSL/TLS certificate.
