The Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) Command Line Interface (Amazon ECS CLI) now supports service discovery.

Amazon ECS service discovery makes it easy for your containerized services to discover and connect with each other. Amazon ECS creates and manages a registry of service names using the Route53 Auto Naming API so you can refer to a service by name in your code and write DNS queries to have the service name resolve to the service’s endpoint at runtime.

Service discovery is available for all networking modes for EC2 launch type or with AWS Fargate.

To learn more about Amazon ECS CLI, visit the Amazon ECS CLI documentation.

Please visit the AWS region table to see all AWS regions where Amazon ECS is available. You can also read the documentation to see where service discovery is available.
