Paws::ECS::StartTask - Arguments for method StartTask on Paws::ECS



This class represents the parameters used for calling the method StartTask on the Amazon EC2 Container Service service. Use the attributes of this class as arguments to method StartTask.

You shouln’t make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the call to StartTask.

As an example:

  $service_obj->StartTask(Att1 => $value1, Att2 => $value2, ...);

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object.


    cluster => Str

The short name or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the cluster that you want to start your task on. If you do not specify a cluster, the default cluster is assumed..

REQUIRED containerInstances => ArrayRef[Str]

The container instance UUIDs or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) entries for the container instances on which you would like to place your task.

The list of container instances to start tasks on is limited to 10.

    overrides => Paws::ECS::TaskOverride

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.

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

    startedBy => Str

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.

If a task is started by an Amazon ECS service, then the startedBy parameter contains the deployment ID of the service that starts it.

REQUIRED taskDefinition => Str

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