You can now use the Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) Command Line Interface (Amazon ECS-CLI) to create AWS secrets for your private registry credentials.

Previously, in order to use the ECS-CLI to run tasks that used images from a private registry, you had to first create AWS Secrets for your registry credentials.
Now you can provide the ECS-CLI with an input file that includes the the registry names and associated credentials, and the ECS-CLI will create the AWS Secrets  as well as an IAM role for you that can be used by ECS to access the secrets.
