Run Single Task

Sometimes you do not want to run a long running service but a one time task. Running Rails migrations are an example of a one off task. Here is an example of how you would run a one time task.

ufo task hi-web --command bundle exec rake db:migrate

At the end of the output you should see you the task ARN:

$ ufo task hi-web --command bundle exec rake db:migrate
...
Running task_definition: hi-web
Task ARN: arn:aws:ecs:us-west-2:994926937775:task/a0e4229d-3d39-4b26-9151-6ab6869b84d4
$

You can describe that task for more details:

aws ecs describe-tasks --tasks arn:aws:ecs:us-west-2:994926937775:task/a0e4229d-3d39-4b26-9151-6ab6869b84d4

You can check out the ufo task reference for more details.

Pro tip: Use the <- and -> arrow keys to move back and forward.
