Client

class ECS.Client

A low-level client representing Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS):

client = session.create_client('ecs')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
create_cluster(**kwargs)

Creates a new Amazon ECS cluster. By default, your account receives a default cluster when you launch your first container instance. However, you can create your own cluster with a unique name with the CreateCluster action.

create_service(**kwargs)

Runs and maintains a desired number of tasks from a specified task definition. If the number of tasks running in a service drops below desiredCount , Amazon ECS spawns another copy of the task in the specified cluster. To update an existing service, see UpdateService .

In addition to maintaining the desired count of tasks in your service, you can optionally run your service behind a load balancer. The load balancer distributes traffic across the tasks that are associated with the service. For more information, see Service Load Balancing in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

You can optionally specify a deployment configuration for your service. During a deployment (which is triggered by changing the task definition or the desired count of a service with an UpdateService operation), the service scheduler uses the minimumHealthyPercent and maximumPercent parameters to determine the deployment strategy.

The minimumHealthyPercent represents a lower limit on the number of your service's tasks that must remain in the RUNNING state during a deployment, as a percentage of the desiredCount (rounded up to the nearest integer). This parameter enables you to deploy without using additional cluster capacity. For example, if your service has a desiredCount of four tasks and a minimumHealthyPercent of 50%, the scheduler can stop two existing tasks to free up cluster capacity before starting two new tasks. Tasks for services that do not use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state. Tasks for services that do use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state and the container instance they are hosted on is reported as healthy by the load balancer. The default value for minimumHealthyPercent is 50% in the console and 100% for the AWS CLI, the AWS SDKs, and the APIs.

The maximumPercent parameter represents an upper limit on the number of your service's tasks that are allowed in the RUNNING or PENDING state during a deployment, as a percentage of the desiredCount (rounded down to the nearest integer). This parameter enables you to define the deployment batch size. For example, if your service has a desiredCount of four tasks and a maximumPercent value of 200%, the scheduler can start four new tasks before stopping the four older tasks (provided that the cluster resources required to do this are available). The default value for maximumPercent is 200%.

When the service scheduler launches new tasks, it determines task placement in your cluster using the following logic:

  • Determine which of the container instances in your cluster can support your service's task definition (for example, they have the required CPU, memory, ports, and container instance attributes).
  • By default, the service scheduler attempts to balance tasks across Availability Zones in this manner (although you can choose a different placement strategy) with the placementStrategy parameter):
    • Sort the valid container instances by the fewest number of running tasks for this service in the same Availability Zone as the instance. For example, if zone A has one running service task and zones B and C each have zero, valid container instances in either zone B or C are considered optimal for placement.
    • Place the new service task on a valid container instance in an optimal Availability Zone (based on the previous steps), favoring container instances with the fewest number of running tasks for this service.

Parameters
  • cluster (string) -- The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster on which to run your service. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.
  • serviceName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name of your service. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. Service names must be unique within a cluster, but you can have similarly named services in multiple clusters within a region or across multiple regions.

  • taskDefinition (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The family and revision (family:revision ) or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the task definition to run in your service. If a revision is not specified, the latest ACTIVE revision is used.

  • loadBalancers (list) --

    A load balancer object representing the load balancer to use with your service. Currently, you are limited to one load balancer or target group per service. After you create a service, the load balancer name or target group ARN, container name, and container port specified in the service definition are immutable.

    For Elastic Load Balancing Classic load balancers, this object must contain the load balancer name, the container name (as it appears in a container definition), and the container port to access from the load balancer. When a task from this service is placed on a container instance, the container instance is registered with the load balancer specified here.

    For Elastic Load Balancing Application load balancers, this object must contain the load balancer target group ARN, the container name (as it appears in a container definition), and the container port to access from the load balancer. When a task from this service is placed on a container instance, the container instance and port combination is registered as a target in the target group specified here.

    • (dict) --

      Details on a load balancer that is used with a service.

      • targetGroupArn (string) --

        The full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Elastic Load Balancing target group associated with a service.

      • loadBalancerName (string) --

        The name of a Classic load balancer.

      • containerName (string) --

        The name of the container (as it appears in a container definition) to associate with the load balancer.

      • containerPort (integer) --

        The port on the container to associate with the load balancer. This port must correspond to a containerPort in the service's task definition. Your container instances must allow ingress traffic on the hostPort of the port mapping.

  • desiredCount (integer) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The number of instantiations of the specified task definition to place and keep running on your cluster.

  • clientToken (string) -- Unique, case-sensitive identifier you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. Up to 32 ASCII characters are allowed.
  • role (string) --

    The name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that allows Amazon ECS to make calls to your load balancer on your behalf. This parameter is required if you are using a load balancer with your service. If you specify the role parameter, you must also specify a load balancer object with the loadBalancers parameter.

    If your specified role has a path other than / , then you must either specify the full role ARN (this is recommended) or prefix the role name with the path. For example, if a role with the name bar has a path of /foo/ then you would specify /foo/bar as the role name. For more information, see Friendly Names and Paths in the IAM User Guide .

  • deploymentConfiguration (dict) --

    Optional deployment parameters that control how many tasks run during the deployment and the ordering of stopping and starting tasks.

    • maximumPercent (integer) --

      The upper limit (as a percentage of the service's desiredCount ) of the number of tasks that are allowed in the RUNNING or PENDING state in a service during a deployment. The maximum number of tasks during a deployment is the desiredCount multiplied by maximumPercent /100, rounded down to the nearest integer value.

    • minimumHealthyPercent (integer) --

      The lower limit (as a percentage of the service's desiredCount ) of the number of running tasks that must remain in the RUNNING state in a service during a deployment. The minimum healthy tasks during a deployment is the desiredCount multiplied by minimumHealthyPercent /100, rounded up to the nearest integer value.

  • placementConstraints (list) --

    An array of placement constraint objects to use for tasks in your service. You can specify a maximum of 10 constraints per task (this limit includes constraints in the task definition and those specified at run time).

    • (dict) --

      An object representing a constraint on task placement. For more information, see Task Placement Constraints in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

      • type (string) --

        The type of constraint. Use distinctInstance to ensure that each task in a particular group is running on a different container instance. Use memberOf to restrict selection to a group of valid candidates. Note that distinctInstance is not supported in task definitions.

      • expression (string) --

        A cluster query language expression to apply to the constraint. Note you cannot specify an expression if the constraint type is distinctInstance . For more information, see Cluster Query Language in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

  • placementStrategy (list) --

    The placement strategy objects to use for tasks in your service. You can specify a maximum of 5 strategy rules per service.

    • (dict) --

      The task placement strategy for a task or service. For more information, see Task Placement Strategies in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

      • type (string) --

        The type of placement strategy. The random placement strategy randomly places tasks on available candidates. The spread placement strategy spreads placement across available candidates evenly based on the field parameter. The binpack strategy places tasks on available candidates that have the least available amount of the resource that is specified with the field parameter. For example, if you binpack on memory, a task is placed on the instance with the least amount of remaining memory (but still enough to run the task).

      • field (string) --

        The field to apply the placement strategy against. For the spread placement strategy, valid values are instanceId (or host , which has the same effect), or any platform or custom attribute that is applied to a container instance, such as attribute:ecs.availability-zone . For the binpack placement strategy, valid values are cpu and memory . For the random placement strategy, this field is not used.

Examples

This example creates a service in your default region called ecs-simple-service. The service uses the hello_world task definition and it maintains 10 copies of that task.

response = client.create_service(
    desiredCount=10,
    serviceName='ecs-simple-service',
    taskDefinition='hello_world',
)

print(response)

}
delete_service(**kwargs)

Deletes a specified service within a cluster. You can delete a service if you have no running tasks in it and the desired task count is zero. If the service is actively maintaining tasks, you cannot delete it, and you must update the service to a desired task count of zero. For more information, see UpdateService .

Note

When you delete a service, if there are still running tasks that require cleanup, the service status moves from ACTIVE to DRAINING , and the service is no longer visible in the console or in ListServices API operations. After the tasks have stopped, then the service status moves from DRAINING to INACTIVE . Services in the DRAINING or INACTIVE status can still be viewed with DescribeServices API operations; however, in the future, INACTIVE services may be cleaned up and purged from Amazon ECS record keeping, and DescribeServices API operations on those services will return a ServiceNotFoundException error.

For the spread placement strategy, valid values are instanceId (or host , which has the same effect), or any platform or custom attribute that is applied to a container instance, such as attribute:ecs.availability-zone . For the binpack placement strategy, valid values are cpu and memory . For the random placement strategy, this field is not used.

Examples

This example deletes the my-http-service service. The service must have a desired count and running count of 0 before you can delete it.

response = client.delete_service(
    service='my-http-service',
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

deregister_container_instance(**kwargs)

Deregisters an Amazon ECS container instance from the specified cluster. This instance is no longer available to run tasks.

If you intend to use the container instance for some other purpose after deregistration, you should stop all of the tasks running on the container instance before deregistration to avoid any orphaned tasks from consuming resources.

Deregistering a container instance removes the instance from a cluster, but it does not terminate the EC2 instance; if you are finished using the instance, be sure to terminate it in the Amazon EC2 console to stop billing.

Note

If you terminate a running container instance, Amazon ECS automatically deregisters the instance from your cluster (stopped container instances or instances with disconnected agents are not automatically deregistered when terminated).

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.deregister_container_instance(
    cluster='string',
    containerInstance='string',
    force=True|False
)
Parameters
  • cluster (string) -- The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster that hosts the container instance to deregister. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.
  • containerInstance (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The container instance ID or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the container instance to deregister. The ARN contains the arn:aws:ecs namespace, followed by the region of the container instance, the AWS account ID of the container instance owner, the container-instance namespace, and then the container instance ID. For example, ``arn:aws:ecs:region :aws_account_id :container-instance/container_instance_ID `` .

  • force (boolean) --

    Forces the deregistration of the container instance. If you have tasks running on the container instance when you deregister it with the force option, these tasks remain running until you terminate the instance or the tasks stop through some other means, but they are orphaned (no longer monitored or accounted for by Amazon ECS). If an orphaned task on your container instance is part of an Amazon ECS service, then the service scheduler starts another copy of that task, on a different container instance if possible.

    Any containers in orphaned service tasks that are registered with a Classic load balancer or an Application load balancer target group are deregistered, and they will begin connection draining according to the settings on the load balancer or target group.

Examples

This example deregisters a container instance from the specified cluster in your default region. If there are still tasks running on the container instance, you must either stop those tasks before deregistering, or use the force option.

response = client.deregister_container_instance(
    cluster='default',
    containerInstance='container_instance_UUID',
    force=True,
)

print(response)

Expected Output:

{
    'ResponseMetadata': {
        '...': '...',
    },
}
deregister_task_definition(**kwargs)

Deregisters the specified task definition by family and revision. Upon deregistration, the task definition is marked as INACTIVE . Existing tasks and services that reference an INACTIVE task definition continue to run without disruption. Existing services that reference an INACTIVE task definition can still scale up or down by modifying the service's desired count.

You cannot use an INACTIVE task definition to run new tasks or create new services, and you cannot update an existing service to reference an INACTIVE task definition (although there may be up to a 10 minute window following deregistration where these restrictions have not yet taken effect).

Note

At this time, INACTIVE task definitions remain discoverable in your account indefinitely; however, this behavior is subject to change in the future, so you should not rely on INACTIVE task definitions persisting beyond the life cycle of any associated tasks and services.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --
    • taskDefinition (dict) --

      The full description of the deregistered task.

      • taskDefinitionArn (string) --

        The full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the task definition.

      • containerDefinitions (list) --

        A list of container definitions in JSON format that describe the different containers that make up your task. For more information about container definition parameters and defaults, see Amazon ECS Task Definitions in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • (dict) --

          Container definitions are used in task definitions to describe the different containers that are launched as part of a task.

          • name (string) --

            The name of a container. If you are linking multiple containers together in a task definition, the name of one container can be entered in the links of another container to connect the containers. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This parameter maps to name in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --name option to docker run .

          • image (string) --

            The image used to start a container. This string is passed directly to the Docker daemon. Images in the Docker Hub registry are available by default. Other repositories are specified with `` repository-url /image :tag `` . Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, colons, periods, forward slashes, and number signs are allowed. This parameter maps to Image in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the IMAGE parameter of docker run .

            Note

            Amazon ECS task definitions currently only support tags as image identifiers within a specified repository (and not sha256 digests).

            • Images in Amazon ECR repositories use the full registry and repository URI (for example, 012345678910.dkr.ecr.region-name.amazonaws.com/repository-name ).
            • Images in official repositories on Docker Hub use a single name (for example, ubuntu or mongo ).
            • Images in other repositories on Docker Hub are qualified with an organization name (for example, amazon/amazon-ecs-agent ).
            • Images in other online repositories are qualified further by a domain name (for example, quay.io/assemblyline/ubuntu ).
          • cpu (integer) --

            The number of cpu units reserved for the container. A container instance has 1,024 cpu units for every CPU core. This parameter specifies the minimum amount of CPU to reserve for a container, and containers share unallocated CPU units with other containers on the instance with the same ratio as their allocated amount. This parameter maps to CpuShares in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --cpu-shares option to docker run .

            Note

            You can determine the number of CPU units that are available per EC2 instance type by multiplying the vCPUs listed for that instance type on the Amazon EC2 Instances detail page by 1,024.

            For example, if you run a single-container task on a single-core instance type with 512 CPU units specified for that container, and that is the only task running on the container instance, that container could use the full 1,024 CPU unit share at any given time. However, if you launched another copy of the same task on that container instance, each task would be guaranteed a minimum of 512 CPU units when needed, and each container could float to higher CPU usage if the other container was not using it, but if both tasks were 100% active all of the time, they would be limited to 512 CPU units.

            The Docker daemon on the container instance uses the CPU value to calculate the relative CPU share ratios for running containers. For more information, see CPU share constraint in the Docker documentation. The minimum valid CPU share value that the Linux kernel allows is 2; however, the CPU parameter is not required, and you can use CPU values below 2 in your container definitions. For CPU values below 2 (including null), the behavior varies based on your Amazon ECS container agent version:

            • Agent versions less than or equal to 1.1.0: Null and zero CPU values are passed to Docker as 0, which Docker then converts to 1,024 CPU shares. CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 1, which the Linux kernel converts to 2 CPU shares.
            • Agent versions greater than or equal to 1.2.0: Null, zero, and CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 2.
          • memory (integer) --

            The hard limit (in MiB) of memory to present to the container. If your container attempts to exceed the memory specified here, the container is killed. This parameter maps to Memory in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory option to docker run .

            You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

            The Docker daemon reserves a minimum of 4 MiB of memory for a container, so you should not specify fewer than 4 MiB of memory for your containers.

          • memoryReservation (integer) --

            The soft limit (in MiB) of memory to reserve for the container. When system memory is under heavy contention, Docker attempts to keep the container memory to this soft limit; however, your container can consume more memory when it needs to, up to either the hard limit specified with the memory parameter (if applicable), or all of the available memory on the container instance, whichever comes first. This parameter maps to MemoryReservation in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory-reservation option to docker run .

            You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

            For example, if your container normally uses 128 MiB of memory, but occasionally bursts to 256 MiB of memory for short periods of time, you can set a memoryReservation of 128 MiB, and a memory hard limit of 300 MiB. This configuration would allow the container to only reserve 128 MiB of memory from the remaining resources on the container instance, but also allow the container to consume more memory resources when needed.

          • links (list) --

            The link parameter allows containers to communicate with each other without the need for port mappings, using the name parameter and optionally, an alias for the link. This construct is analogous to name:alias in Docker links. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed for each name and alias . For more information on linking Docker containers, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/userguide/networking/default_network/dockerlinks/ . This parameter maps to Links in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --link option to docker run .

            Warning

            Containers that are collocated on a single container instance may be able to communicate with each other without requiring links or host port mappings. Network isolation is achieved on the container instance using security groups and VPC settings.

            • (string) --
          • portMappings (list) --

            The list of port mappings for the container. Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. This parameter maps to PortBindings in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --publish option to docker run . If the network mode of a task definition is set to none , then you cannot specify port mappings. If the network mode of a task definition is set to host , then host ports must either be undefined or they must match the container port in the port mapping.

            Note

            After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the Network Bindings section of a container description of a selected task in the Amazon ECS console, or the networkBindings section DescribeTasks responses.

            • (dict) --

              Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. Port mappings are specified as part of the container definition. After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the networkBindings section of DescribeTasks API responses.

              • containerPort (integer) --

                The port number on the container that is bound to the user-specified or automatically assigned host port. If you specify a container port and not a host port, your container automatically receives a host port in the ephemeral port range (for more information, see hostPort ). Port mappings that are automatically assigned in this way do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit of a container instance.

              • hostPort (integer) --

                The port number on the container instance to reserve for your container. You can specify a non-reserved host port for your container port mapping, or you can omit the hostPort (or set it to 0 ) while specifying a containerPort and your container automatically receives a port in the ephemeral port range for your container instance operating system and Docker version.

                The default ephemeral port range is 49153 to 65535, and this range is used for Docker versions prior to 1.6.0. For Docker version 1.6.0 and later, the Docker daemon tries to read the ephemeral port range from /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range ; if this kernel parameter is unavailable, the default ephemeral port range is used. You should not attempt to specify a host port in the ephemeral port range, because these are reserved for automatic assignment. In general, ports below 32768 are outside of the ephemeral port range.

                The default reserved ports are 22 for SSH, the Docker ports 2375 and 2376, and the Amazon ECS container agent ports 51678 and 51679. Any host port that was previously specified in a running task is also reserved while the task is running (after a task stops, the host port is released).The current reserved ports are displayed in the remainingResources of DescribeContainerInstances output, and a container instance may have up to 100 reserved ports at a time, including the default reserved ports (automatically assigned ports do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit).

              • protocol (string) --

                The protocol used for the port mapping. Valid values are tcp and udp . The default is tcp .

          • essential (boolean) --

            If the essential parameter of a container is marked as true , and that container fails or stops for any reason, all other containers that are part of the task are stopped. If the essential parameter of a container is marked as false , then its failure does not affect the rest of the containers in a task. If this parameter is omitted, a container is assumed to be essential.

            All tasks must have at least one essential container. If you have an application that is composed of multiple containers, you should group containers that are used for a common purpose into components, and separate the different components into multiple task definitions. For more information, see Application Architecture in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • entryPoint (list) --

            Warning

            Early versions of the Amazon ECS container agent do not properly handle entryPoint parameters. If you have problems using entryPoint , update your container agent or enter your commands and arguments as command array items instead.

            The entry point that is passed to the container. This parameter maps to Entrypoint in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --entrypoint option to docker run . For more information, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/#entrypoint .

          • dockerSecurityOptions (list) --

            A list of strings to provide custom labels for SELinux and AppArmor multi-level security systems. This parameter maps to SecurityOpt in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --security-opt option to docker run .

            Note

            The Amazon ECS container agent running on a container instance must register with the ECS_SELINUX_CAPABLE=true or ECS_APPARMOR_CAPABLE=true environment variables before containers placed on that instance can use these security options. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

            • (string) --
          • dockerLabels (dict) --

            A key/value map of labels to add to the container. This parameter maps to Labels in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --label option to docker run .

          • logConfiguration (dict) --

            The log configuration specification for the container. This parameter maps to LogConfig in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --log-driver option to docker run . By default, containers use the same logging driver that the Docker daemon uses; however the container may use a different logging driver than the Docker daemon by specifying a log driver with this parameter in the container definition. To use a different logging driver for a container, the log system must be configured properly on the container instance (or on a different log server for remote logging options). For more information on the options for different supported log drivers, see Configure logging drivers in the Docker documentation.

            Note

            Amazon ECS currently supports a subset of the logging drivers available to the Docker daemon (shown in the LogConfiguration data type). Additional log drivers may be available in future releases of the Amazon ECS container agent.

            This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

            Note

            The Amazon ECS container agent running on a container instance must register the logging drivers available on that instance with the ECS_AVAILABLE_LOGGING_DRIVERS environment variable before containers placed on that instance can use these log configuration options. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

            • logDriver (string) --

              The log driver to use for the container. The valid values listed for this parameter are log drivers that the Amazon ECS container agent can communicate with by default.

              Note

              If you have a custom driver that is not listed above that you would like to work with the Amazon ECS container agent, you can fork the Amazon ECS container agent project that is available on GitHub and customize it to work with that driver. We encourage you to submit pull requests for changes that you would like to have included. However, Amazon Web Services does not currently provide support for running modified copies of this software.

              This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

            • options (dict) --

              The configuration options to send to the log driver. This parameter requires version 1.19 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

        The family of your task definition, used as the definition name.

      • taskRoleArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that containers in this task can assume. All containers in this task are granted the permissions that are specified in this role.

      • networkMode (string) --

        The Docker networking mode to use for the containers in the task. The valid values are none , bridge , and host .

        If the network mode is none , the containers do not have external connectivity. The default Docker network mode is bridge . The host network mode offers the highest networking performance for containers because it uses the host network stack instead of the virtualized network stack provided by the bridge mode.

        For more information, see Network settings in the Docker run reference .

      • revision (integer) --

        The revision of the task in a particular family. The revision is a version number of a task definition in a family. When you register a task definition for the first time, the revision is 1 ; each time you register a new revision of a task definition in the same family, the revision value always increases by one (even if you have deregistered previous revisions in this family).

      • volumes (list) --

        The list of volumes in a task. For more information about volume definition parameters and defaults, see Amazon ECS Task Definitions in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • (dict) --

          A data volume used in a task definition.

          • name (string) --

            The name of the volume. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This name is referenced in the sourceVolume parameter of container definition mountPoints .

          • host (dict) --

            The contents of the host parameter determine whether your data volume persists on the host container instance and where it is stored. If the host parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon assigns a host path for your data volume, but the data is not guaranteed to persist after the containers associated with it stop running.

            • sourcePath (string) --

              The path on the host container instance that is presented to the container. If this parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon has assigned a host path for you. If the host parameter contains a sourcePath file location, then the data volume persists at the specified location on the host container instance until you delete it manually. If the sourcePath value does not exist on the host container instance, the Docker daemon creates it. If the location does exist, the contents of the source path folder are exported.

      • status (string) --

        The status of the task definition.

      • requiresAttributes (list) --

        The container instance attributes required by your task.

        • (dict) --

          An attribute is a name-value pair associated with an Amazon ECS object. Attributes enable you to extend the Amazon ECS data model by adding custom metadata to your resources. For more information, see Attributes in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • name (string) --

            The name of the attribute. Up to 128 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, and periods are allowed.

          • value (string) --

            The value of the attribute. Up to 128 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, periods, at signs (@), forward slashes, colons, and spaces are allowed.

          • targetType (string) --

            The type of the target with which to attach the attribute. This parameter is required if you use the short form ID for a resource instead of the full Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

          • targetId (string) --

            The ID of the target. You can specify the short form ID for a resource or the full Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

      • placementConstraints (list) --

        An array of placement constraint objects to use for tasks.

        • (dict) --

          An object representing a constraint on task placement in the task definition. For more information, see Task Placement Constraints in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • type (string) --

            The type of constraint. The DistinctInstance constraint ensures that each task in a particular group is running on a different container instance. The MemberOf constraint restricts selection to be from a group of valid candidates.

          • expression (string) --

            A cluster query language expression to apply to the constraint. For more information, see Cluster Query Language in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

For example, if you binpack on memory, a task is placed on the instance with the least amount of remaining memory (but still enough to run the task).

            • field (string) --

              The field to apply the placement strategy against. For the spread placement strategy, valid values are instanceId (or host , which has the same effect), or any platform or custom attribute that is applied to a container instance, such as attribute:ecs.availability-zone . For the binpack placement strategy, valid values are cpu and memory . For the random placement strategy, this field is not used.

    • failures (list) --

      Any failures associated with the call.

      • (dict) --

        A failed resource.

        • arn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the failed resource.

        • reason (string) --

          The reason for the failure.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --
    • taskDefinition (dict) --

      The full task definition description.

      • taskDefinitionArn (string) --

        The full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the task definition.

      • containerDefinitions (list) --

        A list of container definitions in JSON format that describe the different containers that make up your task. For more information about container definition parameters and defaults, see Amazon ECS Task Definitions in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • (dict) --

          Container definitions are used in task definitions to describe the different containers that are launched as part of a task.

          • name (string) --

            The name of a container. If you are linking multiple containers together in a task definition, the name of one container can be entered in the links of another container to connect the containers. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This parameter maps to name in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --name option to docker run .

          • image (string) --

            The image used to start a container. This string is passed directly to the Docker daemon. Images in the Docker Hub registry are available by default. Other repositories are specified with `` repository-url /image :tag `` . Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, colons, periods, forward slashes, and number signs are allowed. This parameter maps to Image in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the IMAGE parameter of docker run .

            Note

            Amazon ECS task definitions currently only support tags as image identifiers within a specified repository (and not sha256 digests).

            • Images in Amazon ECR repositories use the full registry and repository URI (for example, 012345678910.dkr.ecr.region-name.amazonaws.com/repository-name ).
            • Images in official repositories on Docker Hub use a single name (for example, ubuntu or mongo ).
            • Images in other repositories on Docker Hub are qualified with an organization name (for example, amazon/amazon-ecs-agent ).
            • Images in other online repositories are qualified further by a domain name (for example, quay.io/assemblyline/ubuntu ).
          • cpu (integer) --

            The number of cpu units reserved for the container. A container instance has 1,024 cpu units for every CPU core. This parameter specifies the minimum amount of CPU to reserve for a container, and containers share unallocated CPU units with other containers on the instance with the same ratio as their allocated amount. This parameter maps to CpuShares in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --cpu-shares option to docker run .

            Note

            You can determine the number of CPU units that are available per EC2 instance type by multiplying the vCPUs listed for that instance type on the Amazon EC2 Instances detail page by 1,024.

            For example, if you run a single-container task on a single-core instance type with 512 CPU units specified for that container, and that is the only task running on the container instance, that container could use the full 1,024 CPU unit share at any given time. However, if you launched another copy of the same task on that container instance, each task would be guaranteed a minimum of 512 CPU units when needed, and each container could float to higher CPU usage if the other container was not using it, but if both tasks were 100% active all of the time, they would be limited to 512 CPU units.

            The Docker daemon on the container instance uses the CPU value to calculate the relative CPU share ratios for running containers. For more information, see CPU share constraint in the Docker documentation. The minimum valid CPU share value that the Linux kernel allows is 2; however, the CPU parameter is not required, and you can use CPU values below 2 in your container definitions. For CPU values below 2 (including null), the behavior varies based on your Amazon ECS container agent version:

            • Agent versions less than or equal to 1.1.0: Null and zero CPU values are passed to Docker as 0, which Docker then converts to 1,024 CPU shares. CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 1, which the Linux kernel converts to 2 CPU shares.
            • Agent versions greater than or equal to 1.2.0: Null, zero, and CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 2.
          • memory (integer) --

            The hard limit (in MiB) of memory to present to the container. If your container attempts to exceed the memory specified here, the container is killed. This parameter maps to Memory in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory option to docker run .

            You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

            The Docker daemon reserves a minimum of 4 MiB of memory for a container, so you should not specify fewer than 4 MiB of memory for your containers.

          • memoryReservation (integer) --

            The soft limit (in MiB) of memory to reserve for the container. When system memory is under heavy contention, Docker attempts to keep the container memory to this soft limit; however, your container can consume more memory when it needs to, up to either the hard limit specified with the memory parameter (if applicable), or all of the available memory on the container instance, whichever comes first. This parameter maps to MemoryReservation in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory-reservation option to docker run .

            You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

            For example, if your container normally uses 128 MiB of memory, but occasionally bursts to 256 MiB of memory for short periods of time, you can set a memoryReservation of 128 MiB, and a memory hard limit of 300 MiB. This configuration would allow the container to only reserve 128 MiB of memory from the remaining resources on the container instance, but also allow the container to consume more memory resources when needed.

          • links (list) --

            The link parameter allows containers to communicate with each other without the need for port mappings, using the name parameter and optionally, an alias for the link. This construct is analogous to name:alias in Docker links. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed for each name and alias . For more information on linking Docker containers, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/userguide/networking/default_network/dockerlinks/ . This parameter maps to Links in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --link option to docker run .

            Warning

            Containers that are collocated on a single container instance may be able to communicate with each other without requiring links or host port mappings. Network isolation is achieved on the container instance using security groups and VPC settings.

            • (string) --
          • portMappings (list) --

            The list of port mappings for the container. Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. This parameter maps to PortBindings in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --publish option to docker run . If the network mode of a task definition is set to none , then you cannot specify port mappings. If the network mode of a task definition is set to host , then host ports must either be undefined or they must match the container port in the port mapping.

            Note

            After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the Network Bindings section of a container description of a selected task in the Amazon ECS console, or the networkBindings section DescribeTasks responses.

            • (dict) --

              Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. Port mappings are specified as part of the container definition. After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the networkBindings section of DescribeTasks API responses.

              • containerPort (integer) --

                The port number on the container that is bound to the user-specified or automatically assigned host port. If you specify a container port and not a host port, your container automatically receives a host port in the ephemeral port range (for more information, see hostPort ). Port mappings that are automatically assigned in this way do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit of a container instance.

              • hostPort (integer) --

                The port number on the container instance to reserve for your container. You can specify a non-reserved host port for your container port mapping, or you can omit the hostPort (or set it to 0 ) while specifying a containerPort and your container automatically receives a port in the ephemeral port range for your container instance operating system and Docker version.

                The default ephemeral port range is 49153 to 65535, and this range is used for Docker versions prior to 1.6.0. For Docker version 1.6.0 and later, the Docker daemon tries to read the ephemeral port range from /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range ; if this kernel parameter is unavailable, the default ephemeral port range is used. You should not attempt to specify a host port in the ephemeral port range, because these are reserved for automatic assignment. In general, ports below 32768 are outside of the ephemeral port range.

                The default reserved ports are 22 for SSH, the Docker ports 2375 and 2376, and the Amazon ECS container agent ports 51678 and 51679. Any host port that was previously specified in a running task is also reserved while the task is running (after a task stops, the host port is released).The current reserved ports are displayed in the remainingResources of DescribeContainerInstances output, and a container instance may have up to 100 reserved ports at a time, including the default reserved ports (automatically assigned ports do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit).

              • protocol (string) --

                The protocol used for the port mapping. Valid values are tcp and udp . The default is tcp .

          • essential (boolean) --

            If the essential parameter of a container is marked as true , and that container fails or stops for any reason, all other containers that are part of the task are stopped. If the essential parameter of a container is marked as false , then its failure does not affect the rest of the containers in a task. If this parameter is omitted, a container is assumed to be essential.

            All tasks must have at least one essential container. If you have an application that is composed of multiple containers, you should group containers that are used for a common purpose into components, and separate the different components into multiple task definitions. For more information, see Application Architecture in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • entryPoint (list) --

            Warning

            Early versions of the Amazon ECS container agent do not properly handle entryPoint parameters. If you have problems using entryPoint , update your container agent or enter your commands and arguments as command array items instead.

            The entry point that is passed to the container. This parameter maps to Entrypoint in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --entrypoint option to docker run . For more information, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/#entrypoint .

            • (string) --
          • command (list) --

            The command that is passed to the container. This parameter maps to Cmd in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the COMMAND parameter to docker run . For more information, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/#cmd .

            • (string) --
          • environment (list) --

            The environment variables to pass to a container. This parameter maps to Env in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --env option to docker run .

            Warning

            We do not recommend using plain text environment variables for sensitive information, such as credential data.

            • (dict) --

              A key and value pair object.

              • name (string) --

                The name of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the name of the environment variable.

              • value (string) --

                The value of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the value of the environment variable.

          • mountPoints (list) --

            The mount points for data volumes in your container. This parameter maps to Volumes in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --volume option to docker run .

            The log configuration specification for the container. This parameter maps to LogConfig in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --log-driver option to docker run . By default, containers use the same logging driver that the Docker daemon uses; however the container may use a different logging driver than the Docker daemon by specifying a log driver with this parameter in the container definition. To use a different logging driver for a container, the log system must be configured properly on the container instance (or on a different log server for remote logging options). For more information on the options for different supported log drivers, see Configure logging drivers in the Docker documentation.

            Note

            Amazon ECS currently supports a subset of the logging drivers available to the Docker daemon (shown in the LogConfiguration data type). Additional log drivers may be available in future releases of the Amazon ECS container agent.

            This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

            Note

            The Amazon ECS container agent running on a container instance must register the logging drivers available on that instance with the ECS_AVAILABLE_LOGGING_DRIVERS environment variable before containers placed on that instance can use these log configuration options. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

            • logDriver (string) --

              The log driver to use for the container. The valid values listed for this parameter are log drivers that the Amazon ECS container agent can communicate with by default.

              Note

              If you have a custom driver that is not listed above that you would like to work with the Amazon ECS container agent, you can fork the Amazon ECS container agent project that is available on GitHub and customize it to work with that driver. We encourage you to submit pull requests for changes that you would like to have included. However, Amazon Web Services does not currently provide support for running modified copies of this software.

              This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

            • options (dict) --

              The configuration options to send to the log driver. This parameter requires version 1.19 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance.

        The family of your task definition, used as the definition name.

      • taskRoleArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that containers in this task can assume. All containers in this task are granted the permissions that are specified in this role.

      • networkMode (string) --

        The Docker networking mode to use for the containers in the task. The valid values are none , bridge , and host .

        If the network mode is none , the containers do not have external connectivity. The default Docker network mode is bridge . The host network mode offers the highest networking performance for containers because it uses the host network stack instead of the virtualized network stack provided by the bridge mode.

        For more information, see Network settings in the Docker run reference .

      • revision (integer) --

        The revision of the task in a particular family. The revision is a version number of a task definition in a family. When you register a task definition for the first time, the revision is 1 ; each time you register a new revision of a task definition in the same family, the revision value always increases by one (even if you have deregistered previous revisions in this family).

      • volumes (list) --

        The list of volumes in a task. For more information about volume definition parameters and defaults, see Amazon ECS Task Definitions in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • (dict) --

          A data volume used in a task definition.

          • name (string) --

            The name of the volume. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This name is referenced in the sourceVolume parameter of container definition mountPoints .

          • host (dict) --

            The contents of the host parameter determine whether your data volume persists on the host container instance and where it is stored. If the host parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon assigns a host path for your data volume, but the data is not guaranteed to persist after the containers associated with it stop running.

            • sourcePath (string) --

              The path on the host container instance that is presented to the container. If this parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon has assigned a host path for you. If the host parameter contains a sourcePath file location, then the data volume persists at the specified location on the host container instance until you delete it manually. If the sourcePath value does not exist on the host container instance, the Docker daemon creates it. If the location does exist, the contents of the source path folder are exported.

      • status (string) --

        The status of the task definition.

      • requiresAttributes (list) --

        The container instance attributes required by your task.

        • (dict) --

          An attribute is a name-value pair associated with an Amazon ECS object. Attributes enable you to extend the Amazon ECS data model by adding custom metadata to your resources. For more information, see Attributes in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • name (string) --

            The name of the attribute. Up to 128 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, and periods are allowed.

          • value (string) --

            The value of the attribute. Up to 128 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, periods, at signs (@), forward slashes, colons, and spaces are allowed.

          • targetType (string) --

            The type of the target with which to attach the attribute. This parameter is required if you use the short form ID for a resource instead of the full Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

          • targetId (string) --

            The ID of the target. You can specify the short form ID for a resource or the full Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

      • placementConstraints (list) --

        An array of placement constraint objects to use for tasks.

        • (dict) --

          An object representing a constraint on task placement in the task definition. For more information, see Task Placement Constraints in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • type (string) --

            The type of constraint. The DistinctInstance constraint ensures that each task in a particular group is running on a different container instance. The MemberOf constraint restricts selection to be from a group of valid candidates.

          • expression (string) --

            A cluster query language expression to apply to the constraint. For more information, see Cluster Query Language in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

list_attributes(**kwargs)

Lists the attributes for Amazon ECS resources within a specified target type and cluster. When you specify a target type and cluster, ListAttributes returns a list of attribute objects, one for each attribute on each resource. You can filter the list of results to a single attribute name to only return results that have that name. You can also filter the results by attribute name and value, for example, to see which container instances in a cluster are running a Linux AMI (ecs.os-type=linux ).

  • nextToken (string) --

    The nextToken value returned from a previous paginated ListAttributes request where maxResults was used and the results exceeded the value of that parameter. Pagination continues from the end of the previous results that returned the nextToken value. This value is null when there are no more results to return.

    Note

    This token should be treated as an opaque identifier that is only used to retrieve the next items in a list and not for other programmatic purposes.

  • maxResults (integer) -- The maximum number of cluster results returned by ListAttributes in paginated output. When this parameter is used, ListAttributes only returns maxResults results in a single page along with a nextToken response element.

Parameters
  • familyPrefix (string) -- The full family name with which to filter the ListTaskDefinitions results. Specifying a familyPrefix limits the listed task definitions to task definition revisions that belong to that family.
  • status (string) -- The task definition status with which to filter the ListTaskDefinitions results. By default, only ACTIVE task definitions are listed. By setting this parameter to INACTIVE , you can view task definitions that are INACTIVE as long as an active task or service still references them. If you paginate the resulting output, be sure to keep the status value constant in each subsequent request.
  • sort (string) -- The order in which to sort the results. Valid values are ASC and DESC . By default (ASC ), task definitions are listed lexicographically by family name and in ascending numerical order by revision so that the newest task definitions in a family are listed last. Setting this parameter to DESC reverses the sort order on family name and revision so that the newest task definitions in a family are listed first.
  • nextToken (string) --

    The nextToken value returned from a previous paginated ListTaskDefinitions request where maxResults was used and the results exceeded the value of that parameter. Pagination continues from the end of the previous results that returned the nextToken value. This value is null when there are no more results to return.

    Note

    This token should be treated as an opaque identifier that is only used to retrieve the next items in a list and not for other programmatic purposes.

  • maxResults (integer) -- The maximum number of task definition results returned by ListTaskDefinitions in paginated output. When this parameter is used, ListTaskDefinitions only returns maxResults results in a single page along with a nextToken response element. The remaining results of the initial request can be seen by sending another ListTaskDefinitions request with the returned nextToken value. This value can be between 1 and 100.

list_tasks(**kwargs)

Returns a list of tasks for a specified cluster. You can filter the results by family name, by a particular container instance, or by the desired status of the task with the family , containerInstance , and desiredStatus parameters.

Recently-stopped tasks might appear in the returned results. Currently, stopped tasks appear in the returned results for at least one hour.

Request Syntax

response = client.list_tasks(
    cluster='string',
    containerInstance='string',
    family='string',
    nextToken='string',
    maxResults=123,
    startedBy='string',
    serviceName='string',
    desiredStatus='RUNNING'|'PENDING'|'STOPPED'
)
Parameters
  • cluster (string) -- The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster that hosts the tasks to list. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.
  • containerInstance (string) -- The container instance ID or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the container instance with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a containerInstance limits the results to tasks that belong to that container instance.
  • family (string) -- The name of the family with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a family limits the results to tasks that belong to that family.
  • nextToken (string) --

    The nextToken value returned from a previous paginated ListTasks request where maxResults was used and the results exceeded the value of that parameter. Pagination continues from the end of the previous results that returned the nextToken value. This value is null when there are no more results to return.

    Note

    This token should be treated as an opaque identifier that is only used to retrieve the next items in a list and not for other programmatic purposes.

  • maxResults (integer) -- The maximum number of task results returned by ListTasks in paginated output. When this parameter is used, ListTasks only returns maxResults results in a single page along with a nextToken response element. The remaining results of the initial request can be seen by sending another ListTasks request with the returned nextToken value. This value can be between 1 and 100. If this parameter is not used, then ListTasks returns up to 100 results and a nextToken value if applicable.
  • startedBy (string) -- The startedBy value with which to filter the task results. Specifying a startedBy value limits the results to tasks that were started with that value.
  • serviceName (string) -- The name of the service with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a serviceName limits the results to tasks that belong to that service.
  • desiredStatus (string) --

    The task desired status with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a desiredStatus of STOPPED limits the results to tasks that ECS has set the desired status to STOPPED , which can be useful for debugging tasks that are not starting properly or have died or finished. The default status filter is RUNNING , which shows tasks that ECS has set the desired status to RUNNING .

    Note

    Although you can filter results based on a desired status of PENDING , this will not return any results because ECS never sets the desired status of a task to that value (only a task's lastStatus may have a value of PENDING ).

register_task_definition(**kwargs)

Registers a new task definition from the supplied family and containerDefinitions . Optionally, you can add data volumes to your containers with the volumes parameter. For more information about task definition parameters and defaults, see Amazon ECS Task Definitions in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

You can specify an IAM role for your task with the taskRoleArn parameter. When you specify an IAM role for a task, its containers can then use the latest versions of the AWS CLI or SDKs to make API requests to the AWS services that are specified in the IAM policy associated with the role. For more information, see IAM Roles for Tasks in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

You can specify a Docker networking mode for the containers in your task definition with the networkMode parameter. The available network modes correspond to those described in Network settings in the Docker run reference.

Parameters
  • family (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    You must specify a family for a task definition, which allows you to track multiple versions of the same task definition. The family is used as a name for your task definition. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed.

  • taskRoleArn (string) -- The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that containers in this task can assume. All containers in this task are granted the permissions that are specified in this role. For more information, see IAM Roles for Tasks in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .
  • networkMode (string) --

    The Docker networking mode to use for the containers in the task. The valid values are none , bridge , and host .

    The default Docker network mode is bridge . If the network mode is set to none , you cannot specify port mappings in your container definitions, and the task's containers do not have external connectivity. The host network mode offers the highest networking performance for containers because they use the host network stack instead of the virtualized network stack provided by the bridge mode; however, exposed container ports are mapped directly to the corresponding host port, so you cannot take advantage of dynamic host port mappings or run multiple instantiations of the same task on a single container instance if port mappings are used.

    For more information, see Network settings in the Docker run reference .

  • containerDefinitions (list) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A list of container definitions in JSON format that describe the different containers that make up your task.

    • (dict) --

      Container definitions are used in task definitions to describe the different containers that are launched as part of a task.

      • name (string) --

        The name of a container. If you are linking multiple containers together in a task definition, the name of one container can be entered in the links of another container to connect the containers. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This parameter maps to name in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --name option to docker run .

      • image (string) --

        The image used to start a container. This string is passed directly to the Docker daemon. Images in the Docker Hub registry are available by default. Other repositories are specified with `` repository-url /image :tag `` . Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, colons, periods, forward slashes, and number signs are allowed. This parameter maps to Image in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the IMAGE parameter of docker run .

        Note

        Amazon ECS task definitions currently only support tags as image identifiers within a specified repository (and not sha256 digests).

        • Images in Amazon ECR repositories use the full registry and repository URI (for example, 012345678910.dkr.ecr.region-name.amazonaws.com/repository-name ).
        • Images in official repositories on Docker Hub use a single name (for example, ubuntu or mongo ).
        • Images in other repositories on Docker Hub are qualified with an organization name (for example, amazon/amazon-ecs-agent ).
        • Images in other online repositories are qualified further by a domain name (for example, quay.io/assemblyline/ubuntu ).
      • cpu (integer) --

        The number of cpu units reserved for the container. A container instance has 1,024 cpu units for every CPU core. This parameter specifies the minimum amount of CPU to reserve for a container, and containers share unallocated CPU units with other containers on the instance with the same ratio as their allocated amount. This parameter maps to CpuShares in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --cpu-shares option to docker run .

        Note

        You can determine the number of CPU units that are available per EC2 instance type by multiplying the vCPUs listed for that instance type on the Amazon EC2 Instances detail page by 1,024.

        For example, if you run a single-container task on a single-core instance type with 512 CPU units specified for that container, and that is the only task running on the container instance, that container could use the full 1,024 CPU unit share at any given time. However, if you launched another copy of the same task on that container instance, each task would be guaranteed a minimum of 512 CPU units when needed, and each container could float to higher CPU usage if the other container was not using it, but if both tasks were 100% active all of the time, they would be limited to 512 CPU units.

        The Docker daemon on the container instance uses the CPU value to calculate the relative CPU share ratios for running containers. For more information, see CPU share constraint in the Docker documentation. The minimum valid CPU share value that the Linux kernel allows is 2; however, the CPU parameter is not required, and you can use CPU values below 2 in your container definitions. For CPU values below 2 (including null), the behavior varies based on your Amazon ECS container agent version:

        • Agent versions less than or equal to 1.1.0: Null and zero CPU values are passed to Docker as 0, which Docker then converts to 1,024 CPU shares. CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 1, which the Linux kernel converts to 2 CPU shares.
        • Agent versions greater than or equal to 1.2.0: Null, zero, and CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 2.
      • memory (integer) --

        The hard limit (in MiB) of memory to present to the container. If your container attempts to exceed the memory specified here, the container is killed. This parameter maps to Memory in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory option to docker run .

        You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

        The Docker daemon reserves a minimum of 4 MiB of memory for a container, so you should not specify fewer than 4 MiB of memory for your containers.

      • memoryReservation (integer) --

        The soft limit (in MiB) of memory to reserve for the container. When system memory is under heavy contention, Docker attempts to keep the container memory to this soft limit; however, your container can consume more memory when it needs to, up to either the hard limit specified with the memory parameter (if applicable), or all of the available memory on the container instance, whichever comes first. This parameter maps to MemoryReservation in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory-reservation option to docker run .

        You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

        For example, if your container normally uses 128 MiB of memory, but occasionally bursts to 256 MiB of memory for short periods of time, you can set a memoryReservation of 128 MiB, and a memory hard limit of 300 MiB. This configuration would allow the container to only reserve 128 MiB of memory from the remaining resources on the container instance, but also allow the container to consume more memory resources when needed.

      • links (list) --

        The link parameter allows containers to communicate with each other without the need for port mappings, using the name parameter and optionally, an alias for the link. This construct is analogous to name:alias in Docker links. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed for each name and alias . For more information on linking Docker containers, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/userguide/networking/default_network/dockerlinks/ . This parameter maps to Links in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --link option to docker run .

        Warning

        Containers that are collocated on a single container instance may be able to communicate with each other without requiring links or host port mappings. Network isolation is achieved on the container instance using security groups and VPC settings.

        • (string) --
      • portMappings (list) --

        The list of port mappings for the container. Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. This parameter maps to PortBindings in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --publish option to docker run . If the network mode of a task definition is set to none , then you cannot specify port mappings. If the network mode of a task definition is set to host , then host ports must either be undefined or they must match the container port in the port mapping.

        Note

        After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the Network Bindings section of a container description of a selected task in the Amazon ECS console, or the networkBindings section DescribeTasks responses.

        • (dict) --

          Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. Port mappings are specified as part of the container definition. After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the networkBindings section of DescribeTasks API responses.

          • containerPort (integer) --

            The port number on the container that is bound to the user-specified or automatically assigned host port. If you specify a container port and not a host port, your container automatically receives a host port in the ephemeral port range (for more information, see hostPort ). Port mappings that are automatically assigned in this way do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit of a container instance.

          • hostPort (integer) --

            The port number on the container instance to reserve for your container. You can specify a non-reserved host port for your container port mapping, or you can omit the hostPort (or set it to 0 ) while specifying a containerPort and your container automatically receives a port in the ephemeral port range for your container instance operating system and Docker version.

            The default ephemeral port range is 49153 to 65535, and this range is used for Docker versions prior to 1.6.0. For Docker version 1.6.0 and later, the Docker daemon tries to read the ephemeral port range from /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range ; if this kernel parameter is unavailable, the default ephemeral port range is used. You should not attempt to specify a host port in the ephemeral port range, because these are reserved for automatic assignment. In general, ports below 32768 are outside of the ephemeral port range.

            The default reserved ports are 22 for SSH, the Docker ports 2375 and 2376, and the Amazon ECS container agent ports 51678 and 51679. Any host port that was previously specified in a running task is also reserved while the task is running (after a task stops, the host port is released).The current reserved ports are displayed in the remainingResources of DescribeContainerInstances output, and a container instance may have up to 100 reserved ports at a time, including the default reserved ports (automatically assigned ports do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit).

          • protocol (string) --

            The protocol used for the port mapping. Valid values are tcp and udp . The default is tcp .

      • essential (boolean) --

        If the essential parameter of a container is marked as true , and that container fails or stops for any reason, all other containers that are part of the task are stopped. If the essential parameter of a container is marked as false , then its failure does not affect the rest of the containers in a task. If this parameter is omitted, a container is assumed to be essential.

        All tasks must have at least one essential container. If you have an application that is composed of multiple containers, you should group containers that are used for a common purpose into components, and separate the different components into multiple task definitions. For more information, see Application Architecture in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

      • entryPoint (list) --

        Warning

        Early versions of the Amazon ECS container agent do not properly handle entryPoint parameters. If you have problems using entryPoint , update your container agent or enter your commands and arguments as command array items instead.

        The entry point that is passed to the container. This parameter maps to Entrypoint in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --entrypoint option to docker run . For more information, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/#entrypoint .

        • (string) --
      • command (list) --

        The command that is passed to the container. This parameter maps to Cmd in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the COMMAND parameter to docker run . For more information, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/#cmd .

        • (string) --
      • environment (list) --

        The environment variables to pass to a container. This parameter maps to Env in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --env option to docker run .

        Warning

        We do not recommend using plain text environment variables for sensitive information, such as credential data.

        • (dict) --

          A key and value pair object.

          • name (string) --

            The name of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the name of the environment variable.

          • value (string) --

            The value of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the value of the environment variable.

      • mountPoints (list) --

        The mount points for data volumes in your container. This parameter maps to Volumes in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --volume option to docker run .

        • (dict) --

          Details on a volume mount point that is used in a container definition.

          • sourceVolume (string) --

            The name of the volume to mount.

          • containerPath (string) --

            The path on the container to mount the host volume at.

          • readOnly (boolean) --

            If this value is true , the container has read-only access to the volume. If this value is false , then the container can write to the volume. The default value is false .

      • volumesFrom (list) --

        Data volumes to mount from another container. This parameter maps to VolumesFrom in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --volumes-from option to docker run .

        • (dict) --

          Details on a data volume from another container in the same task definition.

          • sourceContainer (string) --

            The name of another container within the same task definition to mount volumes from.

          • readOnly (boolean) --

            If this value is true , the container has read-only access to the volume. If this value is false , then the container can write to the volume. The default value is false .

      • hostname (string) --

        The hostname to use for your container. This parameter maps to Hostname in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --hostname option to docker run .

      • user (string) --

        The user name to use inside the container. This parameter maps to User in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --user option to docker run .

      • workingDirectory (string) --

        The working directory in which to run commands inside the container. This parameter maps to WorkingDir in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --workdir option to docker run .

      • disableNetworking (boolean) --

        When this parameter is true, networking is disabled within the container. This parameter maps to NetworkDisabled in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API .

      • privileged (boolean) --

        When this parameter is true, the container is given elevated privileges on the host container instance (similar to the root user). This parameter maps to Privileged in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --privileged option to docker run .

      • readonlyRootFilesystem (boolean) --

        When this parameter is true, the container is given read-only access to its root file system. This parameter maps to ReadonlyRootfs in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --read-only option to docker run .

      • dnsServers (list) --

        A list of DNS servers that are presented to the container. This parameter maps to Dns in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --dns option to docker run .

        • (string) --
      • dnsSearchDomains (list) --

        A list of DNS search domains that are presented to the container. This parameter maps to DnsSearch in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --dns-search option to docker run .

        • (string) --
      • extraHosts (list) --

        A list of hostnames and IP address mappings to append to the /etc/hosts file on the container. This parameter maps to ExtraHosts in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --add-host option to docker run .

        • (dict) --

          Hostnames and IP address entries that are added to the /etc/hosts file of a container via the extraHosts parameter of its ContainerDefinition .

          • hostname (string) -- [REQUIRED]

            The hostname to use in the /etc/hosts entry.

          • ipAddress (string) -- [REQUIRED]

        A list of strings to provide custom labels for SELinux and AppArmor multi-level security systems. This parameter maps to SecurityOpt in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --security-opt option to docker run .

        Note

        The Amazon ECS container agent running on a container instance must register with the ECS_SELINUX_CAPABLE=true or ECS_APPARMOR_CAPABLE=true environment variables before containers placed on that instance can use these security options. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • (string) --
      • dockerLabels (dict) --

        A key/value map of labels to add to the container. This parameter maps to Labels in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --label option to docker run . This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

        • (string) --
          • (string) --
      • ulimits (list) --

        A list of ulimits to set in the container. This parameter maps to Ulimits in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --ulimit option to docker run . Valid naming values are displayed in the Ulimit data type. This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

        • (dict) --

          The ulimit settings to pass to the container.

          • name (string) -- [REQUIRED]

            The type of the ulimit .

          • softLimit (integer) -- [REQUIRED]

            The soft limit for the ulimit type.

          • hardLimit (integer) -- [REQUIRED]

            The hard limit for the ulimit type.

      • logConfiguration (dict) --

        The log configuration specification for the container. This parameter maps to LogConfig in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --log-driver option to docker run . By default, containers use the same logging driver that the Docker daemon uses; however the container may use a different logging driver than the Docker daemon by specifying a log driver with this parameter in the container definition. To use a different logging driver for a container, the log system must be configured properly on the container instance (or on a different log server for remote logging options). For more information on the options for different supported log drivers, see Configure logging drivers in the Docker documentation.

        Note

        Amazon ECS currently supports a subset of the logging drivers available to the Docker daemon (shown in the LogConfiguration data type). Additional log drivers may be available in future releases of the Amazon ECS container agent.

        This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

        Note

        The Amazon ECS container agent running on a container instance must register the logging drivers available on that instance with the ECS_AVAILABLE_LOGGING_DRIVERS environment variable before containers placed on that instance can use these log configuration options. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • logDriver (string) -- [REQUIRED]

          The log driver to use for the container. The valid values listed for this parameter are log drivers that the Amazon ECS container agent can communicate with by default.

          Note

          If you have a custom driver that is not listed above that you would like to work with the Amazon ECS container agent, you can fork the Amazon ECS container agent project that is available on GitHub and customize it to work with that driver. We encourage you to submit pull requests for changes that you would like to have included. However, Amazon Web Services does not currently provide support for running modified copies of this software.

          This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

        • options (dict) --

          The configuration options to send to the log driver. This parameter requires version 1.19 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

          • (string) --
            • (string) --
  • volumes (list) --

    A list of volume definitions in JSON format that containers in your task may use.

    • (dict) --

      A data volume used in a task definition.

      • name (string) --

        The name of the volume. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This name is referenced in the sourceVolume parameter of container definition mountPoints .

      • host (dict) --

        The contents of the host parameter determine whether your data volume persists on the host container instance and where it is stored. If the host parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon assigns a host path for your data volume, but the data is not guaranteed to persist after the containers associated with it stop running.

        • sourcePath (string) --

          The path on the host container instance that is presented to the container. If this parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon has assigned a host path for you. If the host parameter contains a sourcePath file location, then the data volume persists at the specified location on the host container instance until you delete it manually. If the sourcePath value does not exist on the host container instance, the Docker daemon creates it. If the location does exist, the contents of the source path folder are exported.

  • placementConstraints (list) --

    An array of placement constraint objects to use for the task. You can specify a maximum of 10 constraints per task (this limit includes constraints in the task definition and those specified at run time).

    • (dict) --

      An object representing a constraint on task placement in the task definition. For more information, see Task Placement Constraints in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

      • type (string) --

        The type of constraint. The DistinctInstance constraint ensures that each task in a particular group is running on a different container instance. The MemberOf constraint restricts selection to be from a group of valid candidates.

      • expression (string) --

        A cluster query language expression to apply to the constraint. For more information, see Cluster Query Language in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • taskDefinition (dict) --

      The full description of the registered task definition.

      • taskDefinitionArn (string) --

        The full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the task definition.

      • containerDefinitions (list) --

        A list of container definitions in JSON format that describe the different containers that make up your task. For more information about container definition parameters and defaults, see Amazon ECS Task Definitions in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • (dict) --

          Container definitions are used in task definitions to describe the different containers that are launched as part of a task.

          • name (string) --

            The name of a container. If you are linking multiple containers together in a task definition, the name of one container can be entered in the links of another container to connect the containers. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This parameter maps to name in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --name option to docker run .

          • image (string) --

            The image used to start a container. This string is passed directly to the Docker daemon. Images in the Docker Hub registry are available by default. Other repositories are specified with `` repository-url /image :tag `` . Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, colons, periods, forward slashes, and number signs are allowed. This parameter maps to Image in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the IMAGE parameter of docker run .

            Note

            Amazon ECS task definitions currently only support tags as image identifiers within a specified repository (and not sha256 digests).

            • Images in Amazon ECR repositories use the full registry and repository URI (for example, 012345678910.dkr.ecr.region-name.amazonaws.com/repository-name ).
            • Images in official repositories on Docker Hub use a single name (for example, ubuntu or mongo ).
            • Images in other repositories on Docker Hub are qualified with an organization name (for example, amazon/amazon-ecs-agent ).
            • Images in other online repositories are qualified further by a domain name (for example, quay.io/assemblyline/ubuntu ).
          • cpu (integer) --

            The number of cpu units reserved for the container. A container instance has 1,024 cpu units for every CPU core. This parameter specifies the minimum amount of CPU to reserve for a container, and containers share unallocated CPU units with other containers on the instance with the same ratio as their allocated amount. This parameter maps to CpuShares in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --cpu-shares option to docker run .

            Note

            You can determine the number of CPU units that are available per EC2 instance type by multiplying the vCPUs listed for that instance type on the Amazon EC2 Instances detail page by 1,024.

            For example, if you run a single-container task on a single-core instance type with 512 CPU units specified for that container, and that is the only task running on the container instance, that container could use the full 1,024 CPU unit share at any given time. However, if you launched another copy of the same task on that container instance, each task would be guaranteed a minimum of 512 CPU units when needed, and each container could float to higher CPU usage if the other container was not using it, but if both tasks were 100% active all of the time, they would be limited to 512 CPU units.

            The Docker daemon on the container instance uses the CPU value to calculate the relative CPU share ratios for running containers. For more information, see CPU share constraint in the Docker documentation. The minimum valid CPU share value that the Linux kernel allows is 2; however, the CPU parameter is not required, and you can use CPU values below 2 in your container definitions. For CPU values below 2 (including null), the behavior varies based on your Amazon ECS container agent version:

            • Agent versions less than or equal to 1.1.0: Null and zero CPU values are passed to Docker as 0, which Docker then converts to 1,024 CPU shares. CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 1, which the Linux kernel converts to 2 CPU shares.
            • Agent versions greater than or equal to 1.2.0: Null, zero, and CPU values of 1 are passed to Docker as 2.
          • memory (integer) --

            The hard limit (in MiB) of memory to present to the container. If your container attempts to exceed the memory specified here, the container is killed. This parameter maps to Memory in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory option to docker run .

            You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

            The Docker daemon reserves a minimum of 4 MiB of memory for a container, so you should not specify fewer than 4 MiB of memory for your containers.

          • memoryReservation (integer) --

            The soft limit (in MiB) of memory to reserve for the container. When system memory is under heavy contention, Docker attempts to keep the container memory to this soft limit; however, your container can consume more memory when it needs to, up to either the hard limit specified with the memory parameter (if applicable), or all of the available memory on the container instance, whichever comes first. This parameter maps to MemoryReservation in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --memory-reservation option to docker run .

            You must specify a non-zero integer for one or both of memory or memoryReservation in container definitions. If you specify both, memory must be greater than memoryReservation . If you specify memoryReservation , then that value is subtracted from the available memory resources for the container instance on which the container is placed; otherwise, the value of memory is used.

            For example, if your container normally uses 128 MiB of memory, but occasionally bursts to 256 MiB of memory for short periods of time, you can set a memoryReservation of 128 MiB, and a memory hard limit of 300 MiB. This configuration would allow the container to only reserve 128 MiB of memory from the remaining resources on the container instance, but also allow the container to consume more memory resources when needed.

          • links (list) --

            The link parameter allows containers to communicate with each other without the need for port mappings, using the name parameter and optionally, an alias for the link. This construct is analogous to name:alias in Docker links. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed for each name and alias . For more information on linking Docker containers, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/userguide/networking/default_network/dockerlinks/ . This parameter maps to Links in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --link option to docker run .

            Warning

            Containers that are collocated on a single container instance may be able to communicate with each other without requiring links or host port mappings. Network isolation is achieved on the container instance using security groups and VPC settings.

            • (string) --
          • portMappings (list) --

            The list of port mappings for the container. Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. This parameter maps to PortBindings in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --publish option to docker run . If the network mode of a task definition is set to none , then you cannot specify port mappings. If the network mode of a task definition is set to host , then host ports must either be undefined or they must match the container port in the port mapping.

            Note

            After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the Network Bindings section of a container description of a selected task in the Amazon ECS console, or the networkBindings section DescribeTasks responses.

            • (dict) --

              Port mappings allow containers to access ports on the host container instance to send or receive traffic. Port mappings are specified as part of the container definition. After a task reaches the RUNNING status, manual and automatic host and container port assignments are visible in the networkBindings section of DescribeTasks API responses.

              • containerPort (integer) --

                The port number on the container that is bound to the user-specified or automatically assigned host port. If you specify a container port and not a host port, your container automatically receives a host port in the ephemeral port range (for more information, see hostPort ). Port mappings that are automatically assigned in this way do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit of a container instance.

              • hostPort (integer) --

                The port number on the container instance to reserve for your container. You can specify a non-reserved host port for your container port mapping, or you can omit the hostPort (or set it to 0 ) while specifying a containerPort and your container automatically receives a port in the ephemeral port range for your container instance operating system and Docker version.

                The default ephemeral port range is 49153 to 65535, and this range is used for Docker versions prior to 1.6.0. For Docker version 1.6.0 and later, the Docker daemon tries to read the ephemeral port range from /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range ; if this kernel parameter is unavailable, the default ephemeral port range is used. You should not attempt to specify a host port in the ephemeral port range, because these are reserved for automatic assignment. In general, ports below 32768 are outside of the ephemeral port range.

                The default reserved ports are 22 for SSH, the Docker ports 2375 and 2376, and the Amazon ECS container agent ports 51678 and 51679. Any host port that was previously specified in a running task is also reserved while the task is running (after a task stops, the host port is released).The current reserved ports are displayed in the remainingResources of DescribeContainerInstances output, and a container instance may have up to 100 reserved ports at a time, including the default reserved ports (automatically assigned ports do not count toward the 100 reserved ports limit).

              • protocol (string) --

                The protocol used for the port mapping. Valid values are tcp and udp . The default is tcp .

          • essential (boolean) --

            If the essential parameter of a container is marked as true , and that container fails or stops for any reason, all other containers that are part of the task are stopped. If the essential parameter of a container is marked as false , then its failure does not affect the rest of the containers in a task. If this parameter is omitted, a container is assumed to be essential.

            All tasks must have at least one essential container. If you have an application that is composed of multiple containers, you should group containers that are used for a common purpose into components, and separate the different components into multiple task definitions. For more information, see Application Architecture in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • entryPoint (list) --

            Warning

            Early versions of the Amazon ECS container agent do not properly handle entryPoint parameters. If you have problems using entryPoint , update your container agent or enter your commands and arguments as command array items instead.

            The entry point that is passed to the container. This parameter maps to Entrypoint in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --entrypoint option to docker run . For more information, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/#entrypoint .

            • (string) --
          • command (list) --

            The command that is passed to the container. This parameter maps to Cmd in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the COMMAND parameter to docker run . For more information, see https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/builder/#cmd .

            • (string) --
          • environment (list) --

            The environment variables to pass to a container. This parameter maps to Env in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --env option to docker run .

            Warning

            We do not recommend using plain text environment variables for sensitive information, such as credential data.

            • (dict) --

              A key and value pair object.

          • volumesFrom (list) --

            Data volumes to mount from another container. This parameter maps to VolumesFrom in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --volumes-from option to docker run .

            • (dict) --

              Details on a data volume from another container in the same task definition.

              • sourceContainer (string) --

                The name of another container within the same task definition to mount volumes from.

              • readOnly (boolean) --

          • workingDirectory (string) --

            The working directory in which to run commands inside the container. This parameter maps to WorkingDir in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --workdir option to docker run .

          • disableNetworking (boolean) --

            When this parameter is true, networking is disabled within the container. This parameter maps to NetworkDisabled in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API .

          • privileged (boolean) --

            When this parameter is true, the container is given elevated privileges on the host container instance (similar to the root user). This parameter maps to Privileged in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --privileged option to docker run .

          • readonlyRootFilesystem (boolean) --

            When this parameter is true, the container is given read-only access to its root file system. This parameter maps to ReadonlyRootfs in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --read-only option to docker run .

          • dnsServers (list) --

            A list of DNS servers that are presented to the container. This parameter maps to Dns in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --dns option to docker run .

            Note

            The Amazon ECS container agent running on a container instance must register with the ECS_SELINUX_CAPABLE=true or ECS_APPARMOR_CAPABLE=true environment variables before containers placed on that instance can use these security options. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

              • hardLimit (integer) --

                The hard limit for the ulimit type.

          • logConfiguration (dict) --

            The log configuration specification for the container. This parameter maps to LogConfig in the Create a container section of the Docker Remote API and the --log-driver option to docker run . By default, containers use the same logging driver that the Docker daemon uses; however the container may use a different logging driver than the Docker daemon by specifying a log driver with this parameter in the container definition. To use a different logging driver for a container, the log system must be configured properly on the container instance (or on a different log server for remote logging options). For more information on the options for different supported log drivers, see Configure logging drivers in the Docker documentation.

            Note

            Amazon ECS currently supports a subset of the logging drivers available to the Docker daemon (shown in the LogConfiguration data type). Additional log drivers may be available in future releases of the Amazon ECS container agent.

            This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

            Note

            The Amazon ECS container agent running on a container instance must register the logging drivers available on that instance with the ECS_AVAILABLE_LOGGING_DRIVERS environment variable before containers placed on that instance can use these log configuration options. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

            • logDriver (string) --

              The log driver to use for the container. The valid values listed for this parameter are log drivers that the Amazon ECS container agent can communicate with by default.

              Note

              If you have a custom driver that is not listed above that you would like to work with the Amazon ECS container agent, you can fork the Amazon ECS container agent project that is available on GitHub and customize it to work with that driver. We encourage you to submit pull requests for changes that you would like to have included. However, Amazon Web Services does not currently provide support for running modified copies of this software.

              This parameter requires version 1.18 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

            • options (dict) --

              The configuration options to send to the log driver. This parameter requires version 1.19 of the Docker Remote API or greater on your container instance. To check the Docker Remote API version on your container instance, log into your container instance and run the following command: sudo docker version | grep "Server API version"

              • (string) --
                • (string) --
      • family (string) --

        The family of your task definition, used as the definition name.

      • taskRoleArn (string) --

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that containers in this task can assume. All containers in this task are granted the permissions that are specified in this role.

      • networkMode (string) --

        The Docker networking mode to use for the containers in the task. The valid values are none , bridge , and host .

        If the network mode is none , the containers do not have external connectivity. The default Docker network mode is bridge . The host network mode offers the highest networking performance for containers because it uses the host network stack instead of the virtualized network stack provided by the bridge mode.

        For more information, see Network settings in the Docker run reference .

      • revision (integer) --

        The revision of the task in a particular family. The revision is a version number of a task definition in a family. When you register a task definition for the first time, the revision is 1 ; each time you register a new revision of a task definition in the same family, the revision value always increases by one (even if you have deregistered previous revisions in this family).

      • volumes (list) --

        The list of volumes in a task. For more information about volume definition parameters and defaults, see Amazon ECS Task Definitions in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

        • (dict) --

          A data volume used in a task definition.

          • name (string) --

            The name of the volume. Up to 255 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, and underscores are allowed. This name is referenced in the sourceVolume parameter of container definition mountPoints .

          • host (dict) --

            The contents of the host parameter determine whether your data volume persists on the host container instance and where it is stored. If the host parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon assigns a host path for your data volume, but the data is not guaranteed to persist after the containers associated with it stop running.

            • sourcePath (string) --

              The path on the host container instance that is presented to the container. If this parameter is empty, then the Docker daemon has assigned a host path for you. If the host parameter contains a sourcePath file location, then the data volume persists at the specified location on the host container instance until you delete it manually. If the sourcePath value does not exist on the host container instance, the Docker daemon creates it. If the location does exist, the contents of the source path folder are exported.

      • status (string) --

        The status of the task definition.

      • requiresAttributes (list) --

        The container instance attributes required by your task.

        • (dict) --

          An attribute is a name-value pair associated with an Amazon ECS object. Attributes enable you to extend the Amazon ECS data model by adding custom metadata to your resources. For more information, see Attributes in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • name (string) --

            The name of the attribute. Up to 128 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, and periods are allowed.

          • value (string) --

            The value of the attribute. Up to 128 letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, hyphens, underscores, periods, at signs (@), forward slashes, colons, and spaces are allowed.

          • targetType (string) --

            The type of the target with which to attach the attribute. This parameter is required if you use the short form ID for a resource instead of the full Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

          • targetId (string) --

            The ID of the target. You can specify the short form ID for a resource or the full Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

      • placementConstraints (list) --

        An array of placement constraint objects to use for tasks.

        • (dict) --

          An object representing a constraint on task placement in the task definition. For more information, see Task Placement Constraints in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

          • type (string) --

            The type of constraint. The DistinctInstance constraint ensures that each task in a particular group is running on a different container instance. The MemberOf constraint restricts selection to be from a group of valid candidates.

          • expression (string) --

            A cluster query language expression to apply to the constraint. For more information, see Cluster Query Language in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

  • overrides (dict) --

    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.

    Note

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

    • containerOverrides (list) --

      One or more container overrides sent to a task.

      • (dict) --

        The overrides that should be sent to a container.

        • name (string) --

          The name of the container that receives the override. This parameter is required if a command or environment variable is specified.

        • command (list) --

          • (string) --
        • environment (list) --

          The environment variables to send to the container. You can add new environment variables, which are added to the container at launch, or you can override the existing environment variables from the Docker image or the task definition. You must also specify a container name.

          • (dict) --

            A key and value pair object.

            • name (string) --

              The name of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the name of the environment variable.

            • value (string) --

              The value of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the value of the environment variable.

    • taskRoleArn (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that containers in this task can assume. All containers in this task are granted the permissions that are specified in this role.

  • count (integer) -- The number of instantiations of the specified task to place on your cluster. You can specify up to 10 tasks per call.
  • startedBy (string) --

    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.

  • group (string) -- 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).
  • placementConstraints (list) --

    An array of placement constraint objects to use for the task. You can specify up to 10 constraints per task (including constraints in the task definition and those specified at run time).

    • (dict) --

      An object representing a constraint on task placement. For more information, see Task Placement Constraints in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

      • type (string) --

        The type of constraint. Use distinctInstance to ensure that each task in a particular group is running on a different container instance. Use memberOf to restrict selection to a group of valid candidates. Note that distinctInstance is not supported in task definitions.

      • expression (string) --

        A cluster query language expression to apply to the constraint. Note you cannot specify an expression if the constraint type is distinctInstance . For more information, see Cluster Query Language in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

      • type (string) --

        The type of placement strategy. The random placement strategy randomly places tasks on available candidates. The spread placement strategy spreads placement across available candidates evenly based on the field parameter. The binpack strategy places tasks on available candidates that have the least available amount of the resource that is specified with the field parameter. For example, if you binpack on memory, a task is placed on the instance with the least amount of remaining memory (but still enough to run the task).

      • field (string) --

        The field to apply the placement strategy against. For the spread placement strategy, valid values are instanceId (or host , which has the same effect), or any platform or custom attribute that is applied to a container instance, such as attribute:ecs.availability-zone . For the binpack placement strategy, valid values are cpu and memory . For the random placement strategy, this field is not used.

Parameters
  • cluster (string) -- 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.
  • taskDefinition (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

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

  • overrides (dict) --

    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.

    Note

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

    • containerOverrides (list) --

      One or more container overrides sent to a task.

      • (dict) --

        The overrides that should be sent to a container.

        • name (string) --

          The name of the container that receives the override. This parameter is required if a command or environment variable is specified.

        • command (list) --

          The command to send to the container that overrides the default command from the Docker image or the task definition. You must also specify a container name.

          • (string) --
        • environment (list) --

          The environment variables to send to the container. You can add new environment variables, which are added to the container at launch, or you can override the existing environment variables from the Docker image or the task definition. You must also specify a container name.

          • (dict) --

            A key and value pair object.

            • name (string) --

              The name of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the name of the environment variable.

            • value (string) --

              The value of the key value pair. For environment variables, this is the value of the environment variable.

    • taskRoleArn (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that containers in this task can assume. All containers in this task are granted the permissions that are specified in this role.

  • containerInstances (list) --

    [REQUIRED]

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

    • (string) --
  • startedBy (string) --

    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.

stop_task(**kwargs)

Stops a running task.

When StopTask is called on a task, the equivalent of docker stop is issued to the containers running in the task. This results in a SIGTERM and a default 30-second timeout, after which SIGKILL is sent and the containers are forcibly stopped. If the container handles the SIGTERM gracefully and exits within 30 seconds from receiving it, no SIGKILL is sent.

Note

The default 30-second timeout can be configured on the Amazon ECS container agent with the ECS_CONTAINER_STOP_TIMEOUT variable. For more information, see Amazon ECS Container Agent Configuration in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

update_container_agent(**kwargs)

Updates the Amazon ECS container agent on a specified container instance. Updating the Amazon ECS container agent does not interrupt running tasks or services on the container instance. The process for updating the agent differs depending on whether your container instance was launched with the Amazon ECS-optimized AMI or another operating system.

UpdateContainerAgent requires the Amazon ECS-optimized AMI or Amazon Linux with the ecs-init service installed and running. For help updating the Amazon ECS container agent on other operating systems, see Manually Updating the Amazon ECS Container Agent in the Amazon EC2 Container Service Developer Guide .

update_container_instances_state(**kwargs)

Modifies the status of an Amazon ECS container instance.

You can change the status of a container instance to DRAINING to manually remove an instance from a cluster, for example to perform system updates, update the Docker daemon, or scale down the cluster size.

When you set a container instance to DRAINING , Amazon ECS prevents new tasks from being scheduled for placement on the container instance and replacement service tasks are started on other container instances in the cluster if the resources are available. Service tasks on the container instance that are in the PENDING state are stopped immediately.

Service tasks on the container instance that are in the RUNNING state are stopped and replaced according the service's deployment configuration parameters, minimumHealthyPercent and maximumPercent . Note that you can change the deployment configuration of your service using UpdateService .

  • If minimumHealthyPercent is below 100%, the scheduler can ignore desiredCount temporarily during task replacement. For example, desiredCount is four tasks, a minimum of 50% allows the scheduler to stop two existing tasks before starting two new tasks. If the minimum is 100%, the service scheduler can't remove existing tasks until the replacement tasks are considered healthy. Tasks for services that do not use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state. Tasks for services that use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state and the container instance they are hosted on is reported as healthy by the load balancer.
  • The maximumPercent parameter represents an upper limit on the number of running tasks during task replacement, which enables you to define the replacement batch size. For example, if desiredCount of four tasks, a maximum of 200% starts four new tasks before stopping the four tasks to be drained (provided that the cluster resources required to do this are available). If the maximum is 100%, then replacement tasks can't start until the draining tasks have stopped.

Any PENDING or RUNNING tasks that do not belong to a service are not affected; you must wait for them to finish or stop them manually.

A container instance has completed draining when it has no more RUNNING tasks. You can verify this using ListTasks .

When you set a container instance to ACTIVE , the Amazon ECS scheduler can begin scheduling tasks on the instance again.

update_service(**kwargs)

Modifies the desired count, deployment configuration, or task definition used in a service.

You can add to or subtract from the number of instantiations of a task definition in a service by specifying the cluster that the service is running in and a new desiredCount parameter.

You can use UpdateService to modify your task definition and deploy a new version of your service.

You can also update the deployment configuration of a service. When a deployment is triggered by updating the task definition of a service, the service scheduler uses the deployment configuration parameters, minimumHealthyPercent and maximumPercent , to determine the deployment strategy.

  • If minimumHealthyPercent is below 100%, the scheduler can ignore desiredCount temporarily during a deployment. For example, if desiredCount is four tasks, a minimum of 50% allows the scheduler to stop two existing tasks before starting two new tasks. Tasks for services that do not use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state. Tasks for services that use a load balancer are considered healthy if they are in the RUNNING state and the container instance they are hosted on is reported as healthy by the load balancer.
  • The maximumPercent parameter represents an upper limit on the number of running tasks during a deployment, which enables you to define the deployment batch size. For example, if desiredCount is four tasks, a maximum of 200% starts four new tasks before stopping the four older tasks (provided that the cluster resources required to do this are available).

When UpdateService stops a task during a deployment, the equivalent of docker stop is issued to the containers running in the task. This results in a SIGTERM and a 30-second timeout, after which SIGKILL is sent and the containers are forcibly stopped. If the container handles the SIGTERM gracefully and exits within 30 seconds from receiving it, no SIGKILL is sent.

When the service scheduler launches new tasks, it determines task placement in your cluster with the following logic:

  • Determine which of the container instances in your cluster can support your service's task definition (for example, they have the required CPU, memory, ports, and container instance attributes).
  • By default, the service scheduler attempts to balance tasks across Availability Zones in this manner (although you can choose a different placement strategy):
    • Sort the valid container instances by the fewest number of running tasks for this service in the same Availability Zone as the instance. For example, if zone A has one running service task and zones B and C each have zero, valid container instances in either zone B or C are considered optimal for placement.
    • Place the new service task on a valid container instance in an optimal Availability Zone (based on the previous steps), favoring container instances with the fewest number of running tasks for this service.

When the service scheduler stops running tasks, it attempts to maintain balance across the Availability Zones in your cluster using the following logic:

  • Sort the container instances by the largest number of running tasks for this service in the same Availability Zone as the instance. For example, if zone A has one running service task and zones B and C each have two, container instances in either zone B or C are considered optimal for termination.
  • Stop the task on a container instance in an optimal Availability Zone (based on the previous steps), favoring container instances with the largest number of running tasks for this service.

class ECS.Paginator.ListTaskDefinitionFamilies
paginator = client.get_paginator('list_task_definition_families')
paginate(**kwargs)

Creates an iterator that will paginate through responses from ECS.Client.list_task_definition_families().

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response_iterator = paginator.paginate(
    familyPrefix='string',
    status='ACTIVE'|'INACTIVE'|'ALL',
    PaginationConfig={
        'MaxItems': 123,
        'PageSize': 123,
        'StartingToken': 'string'
    }
)
Parameters
  • familyPrefix (string) -- The familyPrefix is a string that is used to filter the results of ListTaskDefinitionFamilies . If you specify a familyPrefix , only task definition family names that begin with the familyPrefix string are returned.
  • status (string) -- The task definition family status with which to filter the ListTaskDefinitionFamilies results. By default, both ACTIVE and INACTIVE task definition families are listed. If this parameter is set to ACTIVE , only task definition families that have an ACTIVE task definition revision are returned. If this parameter is set to INACTIVE , only task definition families that do not have any ACTIVE task definition revisions are returned. If you paginate the resulting output, be sure to keep the status value constant in each subsequent request.
  • PaginationConfig (dict) --

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) --

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) --

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) --

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.

class ECS.Paginator.ListTaskDefinitions
paginator = client.get_paginator('list_task_definitions')
paginate(**kwargs)

Creates an iterator that will paginate through responses from ECS.Client.list_task_definitions().

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response_iterator = paginator.paginate(
    familyPrefix='string',
    status='ACTIVE'|'INACTIVE',
    sort='ASC'|'DESC',
    PaginationConfig={
        'MaxItems': 123,
        'PageSize': 123,
        'StartingToken': 'string'
    }
)
Parameters
  • familyPrefix (string) -- The full family name with which to filter the ListTaskDefinitions results. Specifying a familyPrefix limits the listed task definitions to task definition revisions that belong to that family.
  • status (string) -- The task definition status with which to filter the ListTaskDefinitions results. By default, only ACTIVE task definitions are listed. By setting this parameter to INACTIVE , you can view task definitions that are INACTIVE as long as an active task or service still references them. If you paginate the resulting output, be sure to keep the status value constant in each subsequent request.
  • sort (string) -- The order in which to sort the results. Valid values are ASC and DESC . By default (ASC ), task definitions are listed lexicographically by family name and in ascending numerical order by revision so that the newest task definitions in a family are listed last. Setting this parameter to DESC reverses the sort order on family name and revision so that the newest task definitions in a family are listed first.
  • PaginationConfig (dict) --

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) --

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) --

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) --

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.

class ECS.Paginator.ListTasks
paginator = client.get_paginator('list_tasks')
paginate(**kwargs)

Creates an iterator that will paginate through responses from ECS.Client.list_tasks().

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response_iterator = paginator.paginate(
    cluster='string',
    containerInstance='string',
    family='string',
    startedBy='string',
    serviceName='string',
    desiredStatus='RUNNING'|'PENDING'|'STOPPED',
    PaginationConfig={
        'MaxItems': 123,
        'PageSize': 123,
        'StartingToken': 'string'
    }
)
Parameters
  • cluster (string) -- The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster that hosts the tasks to list. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.
  • containerInstance (string) -- The container instance ID or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the container instance with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a containerInstance limits the results to tasks that belong to that container instance.
  • family (string) -- The name of the family with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a family limits the results to tasks that belong to that family.
  • startedBy (string) -- The startedBy value with which to filter the task results. Specifying a startedBy value limits the results to tasks that were started with that value.
  • serviceName (string) -- The name of the service with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a serviceName limits the results to tasks that belong to that service.
  • desiredStatus (string) --

    The task desired status with which to filter the ListTasks results. Specifying a desiredStatus of STOPPED limits the results to tasks that ECS has set the desired status to STOPPED , which can be useful for debugging tasks that are not starting properly or have died or finished. The default status filter is RUNNING , which shows tasks that ECS has set the desired status to RUNNING .

    Note

    Although you can filter results based on a desired status of PENDING , this will not return any results because ECS never sets the desired status of a task to that value (only a task's lastStatus may have a value of PENDING ).

  • PaginationConfig (dict) --

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) --

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) --

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) --
