AWS Amplify Hosting now uses GitHub Apps to obtain access to your GitHub code repositories. The Amplify GitHub App offers all the same features as the existing OAuth app, and additionally gives you complete control over scoping permissions to specific repositories in your account or organization.

All new Amplify projects linked to GitHub repositories will now require using a GitHub App. Your existing projects linked to Amplify via the GitHub OAuth app will continue to be supported, but you can choose to migrate to the new GitHub App to further restrict permissions to your GitHub account.

Amplify Hosting is available in 16 AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon, N. California), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm), and South America (São Paulo).
