pipe: atlassian/aws-ecs-deploy does not support CODE_DEPLOY controller

I have an ECS cluster & service that use CodeDeploy.  However, I get this error when I use this pipe:


Failed to update the stack.


An error occurred (InvalidParameterException) when calling the UpdateService operation: Unable to update task definition on services with a CODE_DEPLOY deployment controller. Use AWS CodeDeploy to trigger a new deployment.

Hi @Monica Gordillo

Thank you for your question!

We'll investigate this case and notify you.

It'd be nice if you provide us with more details about your pipelines configuration and logs.


Best regards,

Hello @Oleksandr Kyrdan ,


I ended up using atlassian/aws-code-deploy:1.1.0 for my ECS code deployment.  Within the AWS ECS service, I'm using CodeDeploy:  ecs_screenshot.png

With atlassian/aws-code-deploy:1.1.0, I had to upload my task definition outside of the pipe & the BUNDLE_TYPE had to be set to YAML.  

I am facing the same issue @Monica Gordillo how does your pipeline look like? Can you please share?

This is what I ended up using in my step:


- echo "Uploading task definition"
- aws ecs register-task-definition --family $ECS_TASK_FAMILY_NAME --region="$AWS_DEFAULT_REGION" --cli-input-json file:///opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/task-definition.json
- pipe: atlassian/aws-code-deploy:1.1.0
COMMAND: 'upload'
ZIP_FILE: 'appspec.yml'
VERSION_LABEL: 'appspec.yml'
- pipe: atlassian/aws-code-deploy:1.1.0
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID: $AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID # Optional if already defined in the context.
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY: $AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY # Optional if already defined in the context.
AWS_DEFAULT_REGION: $AWS_DEFAULT_REGION # Optional if already defined in the context.
COMMAND: 'deploy' # 'upload' or 'deploy'.
VERSION_LABEL: 'appspec.yml'
DEBUG: 'true'
