Return Values

Common return values are documented here Return Values, the following are the fields unique to this module:

name description returned type sample
status the status of the new cluster always string ACTIVE
runningTasksCount how many tasks are running in this cluster 0 if a new cluster int
activeServicesCount how many services are active in this cluster 0 if a new cluster int
clusterArn the ARN of the cluster just created 0 if a new cluster string arn:aws:ecs:us-west-2:172139249013:cluster/test-cluster-mfshcdok
clusterName name of the cluster just created (should match the input argument) always string test-cluster-mfshcdok
registeredContainerInstancesCount how many container instances are available in this cluster 0 if a new cluster int
pendingTasksCount how many tasks are waiting to run in this cluster 0 if a new cluster int


Notes

Note

  • When deleting a cluster, the information returned is the state of the cluster prior to deletion.
  • It will also wait for a cluster to have instances registered to it.
  • If parameters are not set within the module, the following environment variables can be used in decreasing order of precedence AWS_URL or EC2_URL, AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID or AWS_ACCESS_KEY or EC2_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY or AWS_SECRET_KEY or EC2_SECRET_KEY, AWS_SECURITY_TOKEN or EC2_SECURITY_TOKEN, AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION
  • Ansible uses the boto configuration file (typically ~/.boto) if no credentials are provided. See http://boto.readthedocs.org/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html
  • AWS_REGION or EC2_REGION can be typically be used to specify the AWS region, when required, but this can also be configured in the boto config file
