Extending workflows using extensions - AWS AppConfig

Extending workflows using extensions

An extension augments your ability to inject logic or behavior at different points during the AWS AppConfig workflow of creating or deploying a configuration. For example, you can use extensions to perform the following types of tasks (to name a few):

  • Send a notification to an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic when a configuration profile is deployed.

  • Scrub the contents of a configuration profile for sensitive data before a deployment starts.

  • Create or update an Atlassian Jira issue whenever a change is made to a feature flag.

  • Merge content from a service or data source into your configuration data when you start a deployment.

  • Back up a configuration to an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket whenever a configuration is deployed.

You can associate these types of tasks with AWS AppConfig applications, environments, and configuration profiles.
