The StartTaskRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method StartTaskRequest()


Public Property Cluster System.String

Gets and sets the property Cluster.

The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster on which to start your task. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.

Public Property ContainerInstances System.Collections.Generic.List<System.String>

Gets and sets the property ContainerInstances.

The container instance IDs or full ARN entries for the container instances on which you would like to place your task. You can specify up to 10 container instances.

Public Property Group System.String

Gets and sets the property Group.

The name of the task group to associate with the task. The default value is the family name of the task definition (for example, family:my-family-name).

Public Property NetworkConfiguration Amazon.ECS.Model.NetworkConfiguration

Gets and sets the property NetworkConfiguration.

The VPC subnet and security group configuration for tasks that receive their own elastic network interface by using the awsvpc networking mode.

Public Property Overrides Amazon.ECS.Model.TaskOverride

Gets and sets the property Overrides.

A list of container overrides in JSON format that specify the name of a container in the specified task definition and the overrides it should receive. You can override the default command for a container (that is specified in the task definition or Docker image) with a command override. You can also override existing environment variables (that are specified in the task definition or Docker image) on a container or add new environment variables to it with an environment override.

A total of 8192 characters are allowed for overrides. This limit includes the JSON formatting characters of the override structure.

Public Property StartedBy System.String

Gets and sets the property StartedBy.

An optional tag specified when a task is started. For example if you automatically trigger a task to run a batch process job, you could apply a unique identifier for that job to your task with the startedBy parameter. You can then identify which tasks belong to that job by filtering the results of a ListTasks call with the startedBy value. Up to 36 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed.

If a task is started by an Amazon ECS service, then the startedBy parameter contains the deployment ID of the service that starts it.

Public Property TaskDefinition System.String

Gets and sets the property TaskDefinition.

The family and revision (family:revision) or full ARN of the task definition to start. If a revision is not specified, the latest ACTIVE revision is used.
