The "new" Amazon ECS Console is missing fundamental options like container command overrides


The "new" Amazon ECS Console, which is an opt-in experience, is missing important functionality. One such missing function is the ability to specify a custom entrypoint or command override for each container defined in an Amazon ECS Task Definition. This makes the usage of the "new" console almost impossible, and I have to fallback to using the old console.

When is the "new" ECS console going to be usable?

  • Agreed with original concerns here, just wasted like 20 minutes looking for those parameters on the new UI, knowing I had used them in the past to make some Task Definitions that are currently running.
