Update a service instance - AWS Proton

Update a service instance

Learn to update a service instance and cancel the update.

A service instance belongs to a service. You can only create or delete an instance within the context of service edit, create and delete actions. To learn how to add and remove instances from a service, see Edit a service.

There are four modes for updating a service instance as described in the following list. When using the AWS CLI, the deployment-type field defines the mode. When using the console, these modes map to the Edit and the Update to latest minor version and Update to latest major version actions that drop down from Actions in the service instance detail page.

NONE

In this mode, a deployment doesn't occur. Only the requested metadata parameters are updated.

CURRENT_VERSION

In this mode, the service instance is deployed and updated with the new spec that you provide. Only requested parameters are updated. Don’t include minor or major version parameters when you use this deployment-type.

MINOR_VERSION

In this mode, the service instance is deployed and updated with the published, recommended (latest) minor version of the current major version in use by default. You can also specify a different minor version of the current major version in use.

MAJOR_VERSION

In this mode, the service instance is deployed and updated with the published, recommended (latest) major and minor version of the current template by default. You can also specify a different major version that is higher than the major version in use and a minor version (optional).

You can attempt to cancel a service instance update deployment if the deploymentStatus is IN_PROGRESS. AWS Proton attempts to cancel the deployment. Successful cancellation isn’t guaranteed.

When you cancel an update deployment, AWS Proton attempts to cancel the deployment as listed in the following steps.

  • Sets the deployment state to CANCELLING.

  • Stops the deployment in process and deletes any new resources that were created by the deployment when IN_PROGRESS.

  • Sets the deployment state to CANCELLED.

  • Reverts the state of the resource to what it was before the deployment was started.

For more information on cancelling a service instance deployment, see CancelServiceInstanceDeployment in the AWS Proton API Reference.

Use the console or AWS CLI to make updates or cancel update deployments.

AWS Management Console

Update a service instance using the console by following these steps.

  1. In the AWS Proton console, choose Service instances in the navigation pane.

  2. In the list of service instances, choose the name of the service instance that you want to update.

  3. Choose Actions and then choose one of the update options, Edit to update spec or Actions and then Update to latest minor version, or Update to latest major version.

  4. Fill out each form and choose Next until you reach the Review page.

  5. Review your edits and choose Update.

AWS CLI

Update a service instance to a new minor version as shown in the CLI example commands and responses.

When you update your service instance with a modified spec, you can use "${Proton::CURRENT_VAL}" to indicate which parameter values to preserve from the original spec, if the values exist in the spec. Use get-service to view the original spec for a service instance, as described in View service data.

The following example shows how you can use "${Proton::CURRENT_VAL}" in a spec.

Spec:

proton: ServiceSpec pipeline: my_sample_pipeline_optional_input: "${Proton::CURRENT_VAL}" my_sample_pipeline_required_input: "${Proton::CURRENT_VAL}" instances: - name: "my-instance" environment: "simple-env" spec: my_sample_service_instance_optional_input: "${Proton::CURRENT_VAL}" my_sample_service_instance_required_input: "${Proton::CURRENT_VAL}" - name: "my-other-instance" environment: "simple-env" spec: my_sample_service_instance_required_input: "789"

Command: to update

aws proton update-service-instance \ --name "instance-one" \ --service-name "simple-svc" \ --spec file://service-spec.yaml \ --template-major-version "1" \ --template-minor-version "1" \ --deployment-type "MINOR_VERSION"

Response:

Command: to get and confirm status

AWS CLI

Cancel an IN_PROGRESS service instance deployment update to new minor version 2 as shown in the following CLI example commands and responses.

A wait condition is included in the template used for this example so that the cancellation starts before the update deployment succeeds.

Command: to cancel

aws proton cancel-service-instance-deployment \ --service-instance-name "instance-one" \ --service-name "simple-svc"

Response:
