Required Cloudformation Script for Blue/Green deployment on ECS


I am trying to write a cloud-formation template for AWS ECS with blue green deployment support. This blue-green feature was added recently by AWS in ECS and couldn’t find any reference for updating it in cloud-formation template. They have given documentation on, how to do it through UI but not through cloud-formation. I guess, AWS might not updated their cloud-formation documentation as it is a new feature. Any help to find the documentation would be appreciated. Thanking you in advance.


Support for blue/green deployment in CloudFormation has been added. It can be found here in the documentation:

In the “Type” property you can choose “CODE_DEPLOY” as the deployment type. Hope this helps!
