AWS AppConfig integration with CodePipeline - AWS AppConfig

AWS AppConfig integration with CodePipeline

AWS AppConfig is an integrated deploy action for AWS CodePipeline (CodePipeline). CodePipeline is a fully managed continuous delivery service that helps you automate your release pipelines for fast and reliable application and infrastructure updates. CodePipeline automates the build, test, and deploy phases of your release process every time there is a code change, based on the release model you define. For more information, see What is AWS CodePipeline?

The integration of AppConfig with CodePipeline offers the following benefits:

  • Customers who use CodePipeline to manage orchestration now have a lightweight means of deploying configuration changes to their applications without having to deploy their entire codebase.

  • Customers who want to use AppConfig to manage configuration deployments but are limited because AppConfig does not support their current code or configuration store, now have additional options. CodePipeline supports AWS CodeCommit, GitHub, and BitBucket (to name a few).

How integration works

You start by setting up and configuring CodePipeline. This includes adding your configuration to a CodePipeline-supported code store. Next, you set up your AppConfig environment by performing the following tasks.

After you complete these tasks, you create a pipeline in CodePipeline that specifies AppConfig as the deploy provider. You can then make a change to your configuration and upload it to your CodePipeline code store. Uploading the new configuration automatically triggers a new deployment in CodePipeline. After the deployment completes, you can verify your changes. For information about creating a pipeline that specifies AppConfig as the deploy provider, see Tutorial: Create a Pipeline That Uses AWS AppConfig as a Deployment Provider in the AWS CodePipeline User Guide.
