[ aws . ecs ]



Runs a command remotely on a container within a task.

If you use a condition key in your IAM policy to refine the conditions for the policy statement, for example limit the actions to a specific cluster, you recevie an AccessDeniedException when there is a mismatch between the condition key value and the corresponding parameter value.

--cluster (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or short name of the cluster the task is running in. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed.

--container (string)

The name of the container to execute the command on. A container name only needs to be specified for tasks containing multiple containers.

--command (string)

The command to run on the container.

--interactive | --non-interactive (boolean)

Use this flag to run your command in interactive mode.

--task (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or ID of the task the container is part of.

--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.
