Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) launched support for container health checks and a new user interface for load balancers in Spinnaker v1.20. You can now use container health checks through a Spinnaker deployment pipeline which is integrated with ECS services. You can also view and filter load balancers for ECS services within Spinnaker itself to see load balancers and the deployment pipeline for your ECS services in the same tool.
ECS containerized applications deployed through a Spinnaker deployment pipeline can now use container health checks to determine whether containers are ready to accept requests. Previously, container health checks could be configured in Spinnaker, but were not evaluated during ECS deployments. Now deployments to ECS services will wait for any configured container health checks to complete before proceeding. Additionally, you can view the load balancers, listeners, and target groups associated with ECS services within the Load Balancer Infrastructure tab. This lets you view and filter load balancers in use by ECS services within Spinnaker itself, instead of the AWS Management Console.
