Introduction: Create a Continuous Delivery Pipeline
Follow step-by-step instructions to build your first continuous delivery pipeline.
In this tutorial, you will create a continuous delivery pipeline for a simple web application. You will first use a version control system to store your source code. Then you will learn how to create a continuous delivery pipeline that will automatically deploy your web application whenever your source code is updated.
What You Will Learn
This tutorial will walk you through the steps to create the continuous delivery pipeline discussed above. You will learn to:
The diagram below provides a visual representation of the services used in this tutorial and how they are connected. This application uses GitHub, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CodePipeline as pictured below.
As we go through the tutorial, we will discuss the services in detail and point to resources that will help you get up to speed with them.
This tutorial is divided into five short modules. You must complete each module in order before moving on to the next one.
- Set Up Git Repo (5 minutes): Set up a GitHub repository to store the application code.
- Deploy Web App (10 minutes): Create the environment where the web application will be deployed using AWS Elastic Beanstalk.
- Create Build Project (5 minutes): Configure and execute the build process for the application using AWS CodeBuild.
- Create Delivery Pipeline (10 minutes): Create a pipeline to automatically build and deploy the application using AWS CodePipeline.
- Finalize Pipeline and Test (5 minutes): Add a review stage to the pipeline and test its execution.
