AWS::ECS::TaskSet - Amazon CloudFormation
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

AWS::ECS::TaskSet

Create a task set in the specified cluster and service. This is used when a service uses the EXTERNAL deployment controller type. For more information, see Amazon ECS deployment types in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide.

Note

On March 21, 2024, a change was made to resolve the task definition revision before authorization. When a task definition revision is not specified, authorization will occur using the latest revision of a task definition.

For information about the maximum number of task sets and otther quotas, see Amazon ECS service quotas in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide.
