The /tasks endpoints modify the tasks that Consul-Terraform-Sync is responsible for running.

»Update Task

This endpoint allows patch updates to specifically supported fields for existing tasks. Currently only supports updating a task's enabled value.


»Request Parameters

  • run - (string) Values can be only be "inspect" and "now".
    • "inspect": Does not update the task but returns information on if/how resources would be changed for the proposed task update.
    • "now": Updates the task accordingly and immediately runs the task, rather than allowing the task to run at the natural daemon cadence

»Response Fields

  • inspect - Information on how resources would be changed given a proposed task update, similar to inspect-mode. This is only returned when passed the run=inspect request parameter
    • changes_present - (bool) Whether or not changes were detected for running the proposed task update
    • plan - (string) The Terraform plan generated for the proposed task update . Note: a non-empty string does not necessarily indicate changes were detected.

»Example: Disable a task


$ curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
  --request PATCH \
  --data '{"enabled":false}' \



»Example: Inspect enabling a task


$ curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
  --request PATCH \
  --data '{"enabled":true}' \

Response if no changes present:

  "changes_present": false,

Response if changes present:
