AWS::AppConfig::DeploymentStrategy - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::AppConfig::DeploymentStrategy

The AWS::AppConfig::DeploymentStrategy resource creates an AppConfig deployment strategy. A deployment strategy defines important criteria for rolling out your configuration to the designated targets. A deployment strategy includes: the overall duration required, a percentage of targets to receive the deployment during each interval, an algorithm that defines how percentage grows, and bake time.

AppConfig requires that you create resources and deploy a configuration in the following order:

  1. Create an application

  2. Create an environment

  3. Create a configuration profile

  4. Create a deployment strategy

  5. Deploy the configuration

For more information, see AWS AppConfig in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "Type" : "AWS::AppConfig::DeploymentStrategy", "Properties" : { "DeploymentDurationInMinutes" : Double, "Description" : String, "FinalBakeTimeInMinutes" : Double, "GrowthFactor" : Double, "GrowthType" : String, "Name" : String, "ReplicateTo" : String, "Tags" : [ Tags, ... ] } }

YAML

Type: AWS::AppConfig::DeploymentStrategy Properties: DeploymentDurationInMinutes: Double Description: String FinalBakeTimeInMinutes: Double GrowthFactor: Double GrowthType: String Name: String ReplicateTo: String Tags: - Tags

Properties

DeploymentDurationInMinutes

Total amount of time for a deployment to last.

Required: Yes

Type: Double

Minimum: 0

Maximum: 1440

Update requires: No interruption

Description

A description of the deployment strategy.

Required: No

Type: String

Minimum: 0

Maximum: 1024

Update requires: No interruption

FinalBakeTimeInMinutes

The amount of time AWS AppConfig monitors for alarms before considering the deployment to be complete and no longer eligible for automatic roll back.

Required: No

Type: Double

Minimum: 0

Maximum: 1440

Update requires: No interruption

GrowthFactor

The percentage of targets to receive a deployed configuration during each interval.

Required: Yes

Type: Double

Update requires: No interruption

GrowthType

The algorithm used to define how percentage grows over time. AWS AppConfig supports the following growth types:

Linear: For this type, AppConfig processes the deployment by dividing the total number of targets by the value specified for Step percentage. For example, a linear deployment that uses a Step percentage of 10 deploys the configuration to 10 percent of the hosts. After those deployments are complete, the system deploys the configuration to the next 10 percent. This continues until 100% of the targets have successfully received the configuration.

Exponential: For this type, AppConfig processes the deployment exponentially using the following formula: G*(2^N). In this formula, G is the growth factor specified by the user and N is the number of steps until the configuration is deployed to all targets. For example, if you specify a growth factor of 2, then the system rolls out the configuration as follows:

2*(2^0)

2*(2^1)

2*(2^2)

Expressed numerically, the deployment rolls out as follows: 2% of the targets, 4% of the targets, 8% of the targets, and continues until the configuration has been deployed to all targets.

Required: No

Type: String

Allowed values: EXPONENTIAL | LINEAR

Update requires: No interruption

Name

A name for the deployment strategy.

Required: Yes

Type: String

Minimum: 1

Maximum: 64

Update requires: Replacement

ReplicateTo

Save the deployment strategy to a Systems Manager (SSM) document.

Required: Yes

Type: String

Allowed values: NONE | SSM_DOCUMENT

Update requires: Replacement

Tags

Metadata to assign to an AWS AppConfig resource. Tags help organize and categorize your AWS AppConfig resources. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define. You can specify a maximum of 50 tags for a resource.

Required: No

Type: List of Tags

Update requires: No interruption

Return values

Ref

When you pass the logical ID of this resource to the intrinsic Ref function, Ref returns the deployment strategy ID.

Examples

AWS AppConfig Deployment Strategy Example

The following example creates an AWS AppConfig deployment strategy called MyTestDeploymentStrategy. A deployment strategy defines how a configuration is deployed.
