Terraform module to generate well-formed JSON documents that are passed to the
aws_ecs_task_definition Terraform resource as container definitions.
This project is part of our comprehensive "SweetOps" approach towards DevOps.
It's 100% Open Source and licensed under the APACHE2.
We literally have hundreds of terraform modules that are Open Source and well-maintained. Check them out!
This module is meant to be used as output only, meaning it will be used to create outputs which are consumed as a parameter by Terraform resources or other modules.

|command||The command that is passed to the container||list||
|container_cpu||The number of cpu units to reserve for the container. This is optional for tasks using Fargate launch type and the total amount of container_cpu of all containers in a task will need to be lower than the task-level cpu value||string||
|container_image||The image used to start the container. Images in the Docker Hub registry available by default||string||-||yes|
|container_memory||The amount of memory (in MiB) to allow the container to use. This is a hard limit, if the container attempts to exceed the container_memory, the container is killed. This field is optional for Fargate launch type and the total amount of container_memory of all containers in a task will need to be lower than the task memory value||string||
|container_memory_reservation||The amount of memory (in MiB) to reserve for the container. If container needs to exceed this threshold, it can do so up to the set container_memory hard limit||string||
|container_name||The name of the container. Up to 255 characters ([a-z], [A-Z], [0-9], -, _ allowed)||string||-||yes|
|dns_servers||Container DNS servers. This is a list of strings specifying the IP addresses of the DNS servers.||list||
|entrypoint||The entry point that is passed to the container||list||
|environment||The environment variables to pass to the container. This is a list of maps||list||
|essential||Determines whether all other containers in a task are stopped, if this container fails or stops for any reason. Due to how Terraform type casts booleans in json it is required to double quote this value||string||
|healthcheck||A map containing command (string), interval (duration in seconds), retries (1-10, number of times to retry before marking container unhealthy, and startPeriod (0-300, optional grace period to wait, in seconds, before failed healthchecks count toward retries)||map||
|links||List of container names this container can communicate with without port mappings.||list||
|log_driver||The log driver to use for the container. If using Fargate launch type, only supported value is awslogs||string||
|log_options||The configuration options to send to the
|mount_points||Container mount points. This is a list of maps, where each map should contain a
|port_mappings||The port mappings to configure for the container. This is a list of maps. Each map should contain "containerPort", "hostPort", and "protocol", where "protocol" is one of "tcp" or "udp". If using containers in a task with the awsvpc or host network mode, the hostPort can either be left blank or set to the same value as the containerPort||list||
|readonly_root_filesystem||Determines whether a container is given read-only access to its root filesystem. Due to how Terraform type casts booleans in json it is required to double quote this value||string||
|repository_credentials||Container repository credentials; required when using a private repo. This map currently supports a single key; "credentialsParameter", which should be the ARN of a Secrets Manager's secret holding the credentials||map||
|secrets||The secrets to pass to the container. This is a list of maps||list||
|ulimits||Container ulimit settings. This is a list of maps, where each map should contain "name", "hardLimit" and "softLimit"||list||
|volumes_from||A list of VolumesFrom maps which contain "sourceContainer" (name of the container that has the volumes to mount) and "readOnly" (whether the container can write to the volume).||list||
|working_directory||The working directory to run commands inside the container||string||``||no|
|json||JSON encoded container definitions for use with other terraform resources such as aws_ecs_task_definition.|
|json_map||JSON encoded container definitions for use with other terraform resources such as aws_ecs_task_definition.|
