Paws::AutoScaling::ExecutePolicy - Arguments for method ExecutePolicy on Paws::AutoScaling


This class represents the parameters used for calling the method ExecutePolicy on the Auto Scaling service. Use the attributes of this class as arguments to method ExecutePolicy.

You shouldn't make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the call to ExecutePolicy.


    my $autoscaling = Paws->service('AutoScaling');
    # To execute an Auto Scaling policy
    # This example executes the specified Auto Scaling policy for the specified
    # Auto Scaling group.
        'AutoScalingGroupName' => 'my-auto-scaling-group',
        'HonorCooldown'        => 1,
        'PolicyName'           => 'ScaleIn'

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object. For the AWS API documentation, see


AutoScalingGroupName => Str

The name of the Auto Scaling group.

BreachThreshold => Num

The breach threshold for the alarm.

This parameter is required if the policy type is StepScaling and not supported otherwise.

HonorCooldown => Bool

Indicates whether Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling waits for the cooldown period to complete before executing the policy.

This parameter is not supported if the policy type is StepScaling.

For more information, see Scaling Cooldowns ( in the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling User Guide.

MetricValue => Num

The metric value to compare to BreachThreshold. This enables you to execute a policy of type StepScaling and determine which step adjustment to use. For example, if the breach threshold is 50 and you want to use a step adjustment with a lower bound of 0 and an upper bound of 10, you can set the metric value to 59.

If you specify a metric value that doesn't correspond to a step adjustment for the policy, the call returns an error.

This parameter is required if the policy type is StepScaling and not supported otherwise.

REQUIRED PolicyName => Str

The name or ARN of the policy.
