Tasks for AWS 2.7

Tasks for AWS icon The Utoolity team is pleased to present Tasks for AWS 2.7 – this release adds new tasks to deploy Docker containers to the Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS), and supports succeeding a build for non existing AWS CloudFormation stacks. You can now create/update/delete Amazon ECS clusters and services, run/start/stop Amazon ECS tasks, and register Amazon ECS task definitions.


New tasks for the Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS)

You can now facilitate Amazon Web Service's new highly scalable, high performance Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) to deploy Docker containers across your development, test, and production environments - this is enabled by four new tasks:

New task to provide AWS Credentials Variables

Use the AWS Credentials Variables task in Bamboo to provide managed temporary AWS security credentials for other tools by injecting them into AWS unaware tasks like the Bamboo Script task.

This task is provided by Identity Federation for AWS (Bamboo), which is bundled and free for Tasks for AWS licensees, see the Licensing & Purchasing FAQ for details.

Optionally succeed CloudFormation delete action for non existing stacks

Similar to the 'Make it so' option for the create/update CloudFormation actions introduced in release 2.2, it is now possible to Don't fail for non existing stack for the CloudFormation delete action to ensure all preconditions for subsequent tasks are met.

Support for Docker 1.5, Node.js 0.12.0, Python 3.4, Ruby 2.2 and 2015.03 Amazon Linux AMI in AWS Elastic Beanstalk tasks

The available solution stacks have been updated to include the latest versions, see the resp. announcements:

Updated solution stacks are always usable manually as soon as they are made available by AWS - this simply updates the user interface to include those for convenient selection.
