The update command updates the infrastructure of a running process to match the infrastructure specified in a given composition.

When the update command is executed, the CLI compiles the composition and reports any errors, then sends a request to the Conductor to update the process’s infrastructure.

The Fugue Conductor then does the following:

  • Compares the process’s infrastructure to the infrastructure declared in the compiled, updated composition
  • Determines the infrastructure operations required to make the process match the composition
  • Performs the infrastructure operations


To modify a running process, edit the composition file and execute update:

fugue2 update myProcess ResourceGroup.lw

The Fugue CLI asks you to confirm that you want to update the specified process:

[ fugue update ] Updating process: myProcess with ResourceGroup.lw.

[ WARN ] Are you sure you want to update process myProcess with ResourceGroup.lw? [y/N] y

Upon confirmation, the CLI sends a request to the Conductor asking it to resume the process. When the request is accepted, the CLI displays a success message and updated status details:

Compiling Ludwig file ResourceGroup.lw
[ OK ] Successfully compiled. No errors.

Requesting the Conductor to update process myProcess with ResourceGroup.lw ...

[ DONE ] Process myProcess updated with ResourceGroup.lw.
