ECS Deployment error

I am using in my pipeline to do ECS deployment.


The build is failing with the error below.


An error occurred (ClientException) when calling the DescribeTaskDefinition operation: Unable to describe task definition.


When i run the script on my local machine the deployment is successful.


Thank you

I ran into this issue to, it's either a permissions issue ( which is what I thought at first ) or it's a misalignment of the task definitions you are attempting to push to.  In my case I was trying to push a prod task definition to a development cluster and since it couldn't find the "task-prod" on development it failed.  Note that the error is "unable" it's not permission denied.

Hope this helps if someone else lands on this page via google
