Deployment of AWS::Batch::JobDefinition with VCPU less then 1 not possible

0

Hello,

i tried to deploy a AWS::Batch::JobDefinition with AWS SAM and it didn't work. This is the error message i get when running the sam deploy command:

An error occurred (ClientException) when calling the                                                                                                                                                                        RegisterJobDefinition operation: Error executing

resourceRequirement is not valid. Please provide a
numeric value.

The template.yaml looks like this:

            Value: 0.25
          - Type: MEMORY
            Value: 512

The last 4 lines are the one causing the problem. As soon as i replace the 0.25 with anything higher or equal to 1 it works. I also tried to specify one million vCPUs and it worked as well.

Is this a bug or am i missing something?

Best regards, Flo

Ok i figured it out... I forgot to add this Property:

      PlatformCapabilities:
        - FARGATE

after adding this to the Job Definition it worked.
