Install the CodeDeploy agent - AWS CodeDeploy

Install the CodeDeploy agent

To use CodeDeploy on EC2 instances or on-premises servers, the CodeDeploy agent must be installed first. We recommend installing and updating the CodeDeploy agent with AWS Systems Manager, for more information about Systems Manager, see What is AWS Systems Manager. You can set up installation and scheduled updates of the CodeDeploy agent with Systems Manager in the console when you create your deployment groups.

You can also install the CodeDeploy agent directly from an S3 bucket with the command line.
