This topic describes how to change the deployment set of an instance by using the ECS console.


A deployment set is created for your instance. For more information, see Create a deployment set.


  1. Find the target instance. The instance must be in the Stopped or Running state.
  2. In the Actions column, choose More > Instance Settings > Change Deployment Set.

  3. In the Change Deployment Set dialog box, select the destination deployment set and specify the Force Change option:
    • Yes: You can change the host of an instance and restart an instance that is in the Running or Stopped state.
    • No: You cannot change the host of an instance. The deployment set must be added on the current host. This may cause the deployment set modification to fail.

  4. Click OK.

You can also call the ModifyInstanceDeployment API action to modify the name and description of a deployment set.
