AWS ECS Exec
Execute commands inside a running container (Tasks) in a ECS Cluster, this type is useful when there's a necessity to change the state of a running system. It's possible to pass any kind of command to a container through Runops.
In order for this to work the ECS need to be configured properly with the steps:
1. Enabling and using ECS Exec
- Use this tool to validate if the setup is working properly
2. Grant permissions to execute command
Run the script bellow to create an AWS user for Runops.
It has the permissions to access ECS clusters with the tag:
mkdir runops; cd runops
curl -s https://www.runops.io/docs/quickstarts/ecs-exec.tf -o main.tf
terraform init; terraform apply
After execution get the terraform output for the next step:
terraform output id
terraform output secret
Then add a tag with key=
access, and value=
runops to any cluster you want to connect to Runops.
3. Create a connection with the configurations
|yes||The name of the ECS Cluster.|
|yes||The name of the ECS service.|
|yes||The name of the running container of the ECS Task.|
|yes||ECS AWS Access Key ID.|
|yes||ECS AWS Secret Access Key.|
|yes||ECS AWS Region.|
The ECS task id is obtained dynamically listing it by its service name
env command to dump the environment variables of a container instance.
runops tasks create --target my-ecs-service --script 'env'
- Executing an invalid ECS task will not result in an Runops Task error.
