This Quick Start deploys a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 15 minutes, to automatically test AWS CloudFormation templates from a GitHub repository.

The CI/CD environment includes AWS TaskCat for testing, AWS CodePipeline for continuous integration, and AWS CodeBuild as your build service.

TaskCat is an open-source tool that tests AWS CloudFormation templates. It creates stacks in multiple AWS Regions simultaneously and generates a report with a pass/fail grade for each region. You can specify the regions, indicate the number of Availability Zones you want to include in the test, and pass in the AWS CloudFormation parameter values you want to test. You can use the CI/CD pipeline to test any AWS CloudFormation templates, including nested templates, from a GitHub repository.

To get started:

You can also download the AWS CloudFormation template that automates the deployment from GitHub, or view the TaskCat source code.

Quick Starts are automated reference deployments that use AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy key technologies on AWS, following AWS best practices. This Quick Start was built by AWS solutions architects.
