This topic describes how to modify a monitoring task. If a monitoring task cannot meet your requirements, you can modify one or more parameters of the monitoring task instead of creating a new monitoring task.


  1. Log on to the Auto Scaling console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Scaling Tasks > Event-Triggered tasks.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. Select the monitoring type.
    • To select a system monitoring task, click the System Monitoring tab.
    • To select a custom monitoring task, click the Custom Monitoring tab.
  5. Find the target monitoring task and choose More > Edit Task in the Actions column.
  6. Configure the monitoring task.
    You can change all parameters except the monitored resource and monitoring type. For more information about parameter settings, see Create event-triggered tasks.

    You can also change triggered rules. For more information, see Change triggered rules.

  7. Click OK.
