Advanced ECS example

Configuration in this directory creates the following ECS Resources with Default configuration.

  • ECS Cluster
  • ECS Task Definitions
  • ECS Service
  • Application Load Balancer
  • IAM Role for Tasks
  • Cloudwatch Log Group
  • SSM Parameter Store Entry for Secrets

You can choose to create an ECS setup with the following options:

  • Create an ECS setup in an existing VPC:
        create_vpc = false          # Default setup
  • Create an ECS setup in a new VPC: This creates a new VPC in your account and then provisions ECS resources inside that VPC.
        create_vpc = true


To run this example you need to execute:

$ terraform init
$ terraform plan
$ terraform apply

Note that this example may create resources which cost money. Run terraform destroy when you don’t need these resources.
