AWS Elastic Beanstalk
Developer Guide (API Version 2010-12-01)

Create an Application

You can use the AWS Management Console, the command line interface (CLI), or the API to create a new Elastic Beanstalk application and deploy the application version to a new environment.

To create a new application

  1. Open the Elastic Beanstalk console.

  2. On the Elastic Beanstalk application navigation bar, click Create New Application.

  3. Enter the name of the application and, optionally, a description. Then click Next.

That's it. The console will add your new application to the navigation bar at the top of the screen. Click on the name of an application in the navigation bar to view environments, application versions, and saved configurations associated with it.

After creating a new application, the console prompts you to create an environment for it. For detailed information about all of the options available, see Creating an AWS Elastic Beanstalk Environment. If you would just like to launch a sample application in your environment quickly, try the abridged instructions in Launching an Environment with a Sample Application.
