AWS ECS Task Definition

 Now that I have an ECR Image (built locally and pushed up from Docker Desktop) and an ECS Cluster Created, next step is to create a Task Definition.

I provided the Container Port of 8080 (same as the one I exposed in the Dockerfile of the Image). 

Here, we are going absolute minimum on CPU and Memory since it is a test app.
Note: In order to actually create Task Def and Containers, I had to go back as the Root User and create Inline Policy that contained the following IAM Actions:
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
            "Sid": "VisualEditor0",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
            "Resource": "*"
Otherwise you will see error messages like this, since AWS is trying to create a Role for running your task.
