Custom launch container

This feature requires version 20.10.2 or later.

Seqera Platform automatically registers an AWS Batch job definition to launch pipelines with the required Nextflow runtime.

If you need to manage this manually, create a job definition in your AWS Batch environment with the following settings:

  • name: any of your choice
  • image: a custom image based on the Seqera nf-launcher image
  • vcpus: at least 1
  • memory: at least 1000
  • command: true

After the job definition is registered, update your Seqera Enterprise configuration with the following (replace <YOUR_JOB_DEFINITION_NAME> with the name of the job definition):


The repository where your launch container resides must be accessible to the Batch cluster's ECS Agent.
