AWS Serverless Application Repository Documentation

The AWS Serverless Application Repository is a managed repository for serverless applications. It enables teams, organizations, and individual developers to store and share reusable applications, and assemble and deploy serverless architectures in powerful new ways. Using the Serverless Application Repository, you don't need to clone, build, package, or publish source code to AWS before deploying it. Instead, you can use pre-built applications from the Serverless Application Repository in your serverless architectures, helping you and your teams reduce duplicated work, promote organizational best practices, and get to market faster. Integration with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) provides resource-level control of each application, enabling you to publicly share applications with everyone or privately share them with specific AWS accounts.

How it works: Deploying applications

Develop More Powerful Apps
Assemble serverless architectures in powerful new ways. Discover and share reusable serverless application patterns, privately or publicly, and compose new serverless architectures using the simplified syntax of AWS SAM.
Easily Manage Applications
Use pre-built applications in your serverless deployments. It also supports SAM and semantic versioning to enable simple application management.
Reuse, Don't Rebuild
Develop and publish serverless applications once, store them in the Serverless Application Repository, and use them privately across teams or with the greater community to reduce duplicated efforts and accelerate development workflows.
Promote Best Practices
Find and distribute serverless applications for common use cases. Build organizational best practices into your serverless architectures to help promote consistency across teams—use permissions to share applications with specific AWS accounts.

Publishing Applications to the Repository

Publish applications as stand-alone applications or as nested applications, and store and manage them through the AWS Serverless Application Repository. Share applications across your teams and organizations to reduce duplicated development efforts and promote consistency and best practices. Or, share them with the open-source developer community. Companies and partners can also publish their applications in the Serverless Application Repository to help customers understand the value of products and services they sell and support.
