AWS CodeDeploy
User Guide (API Version 2014-10-06)

A new console design is available for this service. Although the procedures in this guide were written for the older version of the console, you will find many of the concepts and basic procedures in this guide still apply.

Create a Deployment Group with AWS CodeDeploy

You can use the AWS CodeDeploy console, the AWS CLI, the AWS CodeDeploy APIs, or an AWS CloudFormation template to create deployment groups. For information about using an AWS CloudFormation template to create a deployment group, see AWS CloudFormation Templates for AWS CodeDeploy Reference.

When you use the AWS CodeDeploy console to create an application, you configure its first deployment group at the same time. When you use the AWS CLI to create an application, you create its first deployment group in a separate step.

As part of creating a deployment group, you must specify a service role. For more information, see Step 3: Create a Service Role for AWS CodeDeploy.
