aws:changeInstanceState – Change or assert instance state

Changes or asserts the state of the instance.

This action can be used in assert mode (do not run the API to change the state but verify the instance is in the desired state.) To use assert mode, set the CheckStateOnly parameter to true. This mode is useful when running the Sysprep command on Windows, which is an asynchronous command that can run in the background for a long time. You can ensure that the instance is stopped before you create an AMI.

Note

The default timeout value for this action is 3600 seconds (one hour). You can limit or extend the timeout by specifying the timeoutSeconds parameter for an aws:changeInstanceState step.

{ "name":"stopMyInstance", "action": "aws:changeInstanceState", "maxAttempts": 3, "timeoutSeconds": 3600, "onFailure": "Abort", "inputs": { "InstanceIds": ["i-1234567890abcdef0"], "CheckStateOnly": true, "DesiredState": "stopped" } }
InstanceIds

The IDs of the instances.

Type: StringList

Required: Yes

CheckStateOnly

If false, sets the instance state to the desired state. If true, asserts the desired state using polling.

Default: false

Type: Boolean

Required: No

DesiredState

The desired state. When set to running, this action waits for the Amazon EC2 state to be Running, the Instance Status to be OK, and the System Status to be OK before completing.

Type: String

Valid values: running | stopped | terminated

Required: Yes

Force

If set, forces the instances to stop. The instances do not have an opportunity to flush file system caches or file system metadata. If you use this option, you must perform file system check and repair procedures. This option is not recommended for EC2 instances for Windows Server.
