CodePipeline for Continuous Deployment to Elastic Beanstalk

45 minutes
  • 3 Learning Objectives

About this Hands-on Lab

In this hands-on lab, we will use CodePipeline to deploy to an Elastic Beanstalk environment. This is a quick way to set up a CodePipeline pipeline, and the first thing to do is create an Elastic Beanstalk environment. Once the Elastic Beanstalk environment is set up, the source repository can be configured and then the CodePipeline pipeline is configured. Ultimately, the deployment service will be Elastic Beanstalk, and each deployment will be to the Elastic Beanstalk environment.
