[ aws . ecs . wait ]



Wait until JMESPath query length(services[?!(length(deployments) == 1 && runningCount == desiredCount)]) == 0 returns True when polling with describe-services. It will poll every 15 seconds until a successful state has been reached. This will exit with a return code of 255 after 40 failed checks.

[--cluster <value>]
--services <value>
[--include <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--cluster (string)

The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN)the cluster that hosts the service to describe. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed. This parameter is required if the service or services you are describing were launched in any cluster other than the default cluster.

--services (list)

A list of services to describe. You may specify up to 10 services to describe in a single operation.



"string" "string" ...

--include (list)

Determines whether you want to see the resource tags for the service. If TAGS is specified, the tags are included in the response. If this field is omitted, tags aren’t included in the response.



"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:

--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.

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 .

Example 1: To pause running until a service is confirmed to be stable

The following wait example pauses and continues only after it can confirm that the specified service running on the specified cluster is stable. There is no output.

aws ecs wait services-stable \
    --cluster MyCluster \
    --services MyService

Example 2: To pause running until a task is confirmed to be running

The following wait example pauses and continues only after the specified task enters a RUNNING state.

aws ecs wait services-stable \
    --cluster MyCluster \
    --tasks arn:aws:ecs:us-west-2:123456789012:task/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-44444EXAMPLE
