Scaling configurations have two life cycle status. Active: The scaling group uses the scaling configuration in active status to create ECS instances. Inactive: Inactive scaling configurations are still in a scaling group, but are not used to create ECS instances. You can select a scale configuration according to your business needs. The scaling group automatically creates ECS instances only based on the Active scaling configuration.
