Upgrading to Version 4
A major change in ufo from version 3 to 4 is that the ECS service is now created by CloudFormation. If you have an existing ECS service deployed by ufo version 3, when you deploy your app again with ufo version 4, there will be a new additional ECS service created. Here is the recommended upgrade path.
Upgrade Steps Summary
The upgrade path recommended here should result in zero downtime. It is effectively a blue/green deployment with a DNS switchover.
ufo upgrade v3to4in your project folder.
- Check the changed files.

- Confirm your new service is working.

- Switch the DNS to the new service’s endpoint.
- Confirm everything on the new service works.
- Destroy the old ECS service with the ECS console. Do not destroy it with
ufo destroyas the
ufo destroycommand will destroy the newly created service.
Note, with ufo version 4, load balancers are supported and automatically created for web services. If you want to use the existing load balancer, you can do so by specifying
ufo upgrade v3to4
It is recommended that you run the
ufo upgrade v3to4 command with the network options specified. Please substitute the command with the vpc id and subnets for your setup. Example:
$ ufo upgrade v3to4 --vpc-id vpc-111 --ecs-subnets subnet-111 subnet-222 --elb-subnets subnet-333 subnet-444 --force Upgrading structure of your current project to the new ufo version 4 project structure append .dockerignore append .gitignore force .ufo/params.yml create .ufo/settings/cfn/default.yml create .ufo/settings/network/default.yml Upgrade complete.
If you run the upgrade command without specified options, then ufo will detect and use the default vpc and subnets, which might not be what you want. Inspect the files and verify that they are what you desired.
