Each CloudFormation stack must have a name that is unique within the stack's region. Takomo uses stack names to match stacks found from the local configuration with the target accounts' stacks.
You can give a name for a stack using the
Specifying a name:
If you omit the name, Takomo will generate the name using the following logic:
- 1.Take the stack path and remove the leading forward slash
- 2.Remove the region specifier from the end of the stack path
- 3.Replace the remaining forward slashes with hyphens
- 4.If the
projectproperty is specified, prepend it to the name
For example, if your stack's path is /dev/eu-west-1/vpc.yml/eu-west-1, its generated name will be dev-eu-west-1-vpc.
nameproperty can be defined only in stack configuration files.
nameproperty must satisfy these requirements:
- Must be a string
- Must match regex
- Have a minimum length of 1
- Have a maximum length 128
You can't rename stacks. If you change the name of an existing stack, Takomo will use the new name to find a corresponding stack from the target account. As Takomo does not keep track of the stacks it has deployed, it can't know that the stack still exists with the old name.
