DataRepositoryTask - Amazon FSx
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).


A description of the data repository task.

  • You use import and export data repository tasks to perform bulk transfer operations between an Amazon FSx for Lustre file system and a linked data repository.

  • You use release data repository tasks to release files that have been exported to a linked S3 bucket from your Amazon FSx for Lustre file system.

  • An Amazon File Cache resource uses a task to automatically release files from the cache.

To learn more about data repository tasks, see Data Repository Tasks.



The time that the resource was created, in seconds (since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z), also known as Unix time.

Type: Timestamp

Required: Yes


The lifecycle status of the data repository task, as follows:

  • PENDING - The task has not started.

  • EXECUTING - The task is in process.

  • FAILED - The task was not able to be completed. For example, there may be files the task failed to process. The DataRepositoryTaskFailureDetails property provides more information about task failures.

  • SUCCEEDED - The task has completed successfully.

  • CANCELED - The task was canceled and it did not complete.

  • CANCELING - The task is in process of being canceled.


You cannot delete an FSx for Lustre file system if there are data repository tasks for the file system in the PENDING or EXECUTING states. Please retry when the data repository task is finished (with a status of CANCELED, SUCCEEDED, or FAILED). You can use the DescribeDataRepositoryTask action to monitor the task status. Contact the FSx team if you need to delete your file system immediately.

The globally unique ID of the file system.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 11. Maximum length of 21.

Pattern: ^(fs-[0-9a-f]{8,})$

Required: No


An array of paths that specify the data for the data repository task to process. For example, in an EXPORT_TO_REPOSITORY task, the paths specify which data to export to the linked data repository.

(Default) If Paths is not specified, Amazon FSx uses the file system root directory.

Type: Array of strings

Array Members: Maximum number of 100 items.

The configuration that specifies the last accessed time criteria for files that will be released from an Amazon FSx for Lustre file system.

Type: ReleaseConfiguration object

Required: No


Provides a report detailing the data repository task results of the files processed that match the criteria specified in the report Scope parameter.
