Updates a job queue.

--job-queue (string)

The name or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the job queue.

--state (string)

Describes the queue’s ability to accept new jobs.

Possible values:



--priority (integer)

The priority of the job queue. Job queues with a higher priority (or a higher integer value for the priority parameter) are evaluated first when associated with the same compute environment. Priority is determined in descending order, for example, a job queue with a priority value of 10 is given scheduling preference over a job queue with a priority value of 1 .

--compute-environment-order (list)

Details the set of compute environments mapped to a job queue and their order relative to each other. This is one of the parameters used by the job scheduler to determine which compute environment should execute a given job.


The order in which compute environments are tried for job placement within a queue. Compute environments are tried in ascending order. For example, if two compute environments are associated with a job queue, the compute environment with a lower order integer value is tried for job placement first.

order -> (integer)

The order of the compute environment.

computeEnvironment -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the compute environment.

Shorthand Syntax:

order=integer,computeEnvironment=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "order": integer,
    "computeEnvironment": "string"

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To update a job queue

This example disables a job queue so that it can be deleted.


aws batch update-job-queue --job-queue GPGPU --state DISABLED


    "jobQueueArn": "arn:aws:batch:us-east-1:012345678910:job-queue/GPGPU",
    "jobQueueName": "GPGPU"


jobQueueName -> (string)

The name of the job queue.

jobQueueArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the job queue.
