Updating a Deployed Task

After deploying a Koii Task, if you wish to update it, follow these steps:

  • Firstly, make all the desired changes in your code, implementing the necessary modifications and improvements.
  • Navigate to the config-task.yml file located in the root directory of your project.

In the config-task.yml file, you will find instructions and fields where you need to fill in your task's updated information. Ensure you include the task_id of the task that needs to be re-deployed. This task_id is essential to identify the specific task that requires updating.

Additionally, the migrationDescription parameter is used specifically for task updates. On the Koii Node, it informs task runners what was changed in the new version of the task. Make sure to describe what has changed so that your community is confident in running the new version of your task.

Once you have made the necessary changes and provided the updated information in the config-task.yml file, you can proceed with the re-deployment of your task.

#Provide the taskId if you are updating the task
task_id: "<Your Previous Task Id>"
# Name and description of your task
task_name: "web3-revolution"
task_description: 'This is a simple web3 task that returns "Hello, World!"'

migrationDescription: "Optimized CPU and RAM usage"

# Network value can be DEVELOPMENT, ARWEAVE or IPFS
