You can use the change set feature to update the template and template parameters of a stack. This topic describes how to create a change set in the Resource Orchestration Service (ROS) console.


A stack is created. For more information about how to create a stack, see Create a stack.

Create a change set in the ROS console

  1. Log on to the ROS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Stacks.
  3. In the upper-left corner of the page, select the region in which the stack that you want to use is deployed from the drop-down list.
  4. In the Actions column of the stack, choose 1 > Create Change Set.
    You can also click the stack ID in the Stack Name column. On the stack management page, click the Change Sets tab. Then, click Create Change Set.

Create a change set by using Alibaba Cloud CLI

You can use Alibaba Cloud CLI to run the aliyun ros CreateChangeSet command to create a change set.

You must specify CREATE as the type of the change set that you want to create. You must also specify a stack name, a template, and a change set name and configure the required parameters. In the following example, a change set named test-change-set is created by using the oss://ros-templates/test-change-set.json?RegionId=cn-hangzhou stack template.

aliyun ros CreateChangeSet --TemplateURL oss://ros-templates/test-change-set.json?RegionId=cn-hangzhou --StackId <stack_id> --ChangeSetName test-change-set --Parameters.1.ParameterKey Count --Parameters.1.ParameterValue 1
