Updates a stack using the input information that was provided when the specified change set was created. After the call successfully completes, CloudFormation starts updating the stack. Use the DescribeStacks action to view the status of the update.
When you execute a change set, CloudFormation deletes all other change sets associated with the stack because they aren’t valid for the updated stack.
If a stack policy is associated with the stack, CloudFormation enforces the policy during the update. You can’t specify a temporary stack policy that overrides the current policy.
To create a change set for the entire stack hierarchy,
IncludeNestedStacks must have been set to

The name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the change set that you want use to update the specified stack.
If you specified the name of a change set, specify the stack name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that’s associated with the change set you want to execute.
A unique identifier for this
ExecuteChangeSetrequest. Specify this token if you plan to retry requests so that CloudFormation knows that you’re not attempting to execute a change set to update a stack with the same name. You might retry
ExecuteChangeSetrequests to ensure that CloudFormation successfully received them.
Preserves the state of previously provisioned resources when an operation fails.
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
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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.
Turn on debug logging.
Override command’s default URL with the given URL.
By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.
Disable automatic pagination.
The formatting style for command output.
A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.
Use a specific profile from your credential file.
The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.
Display the version of this tool.
Turn on/off color output.
Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.
The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.
The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob
fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the
cli-binary-format setting. When using
file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured
Disable cli pager for output.
Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.
Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .
To execute a change set
execute-change-set example executes a change set specified by change set name and stack name.
aws cloudformation execute-change-set \ --change-set-name my-change-set \ --stack-name my-stack
execute-change-set example executes a change set specified by the full ARN of the change set.
aws cloudformation execute-change-set \ --change-set-name arn:aws:cloudformation:us-west-2:123456789012:changeSet/my-change-set/bc9555ba-a949-xmpl-bfb8-f41d04ec5784
