Lightning-fast ECS Import to Terraform

Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) is a fully managed container orchestration service designed to streamline the deployment and management of containerized applications. ECS comprises multiple resources, such as ECS Cluster, ECS Service, ECS Task, and Task Definition. Typically, customers utilizing ECS have dozens of services running in a cluster, alongside an equal or greater number of Task Definitions.

Managing these resources manually can be challenging, error-prone, and difficult to maintain, particularly for Task Definition resources that consist of numerous properties and configurations. Leveraging Terraform to manage ECS resources is essential for tracking changes and preventing mistakes before they occur.


Our latest addition to the ControlMonkey platform enables lightning-fast, one-click import of ECS resources, including ECS Cluster(aws_ecs_cluster), ECS Service(aws_ecs_service), and ECS Capacity Provider(aws_ecs_capacity_provider) ECS Task Definition(aws_ecs_task_definition), among others.

By simplifying the import process, we aim to help you focus on what matters most: efficiently deploying and managing your containerized applications. Our one-click import feature ensures that your ECS resources are accurately represented in your Terraform state files, allowing you to monitor and maintain your infrastructure with confidence.

Furthermore, our Control Policies ensure that your Terraform configurations adhere to best practices and compliance requirements. This reduces the risk of configuration errors and promotes a more secure and reliable infrastructure. With ControlMonkey’s lightning-fast ECS import feature, you can effortlessly manage your ECS resources, streamline your workflows, and maintain the stability and security of your infrastructure.

If you’re looking to manage your ECS clusters with Terraform, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at ControlMonkey. Our team of experts is ready to help you in your Terraform journey.
