Environment Manifest (env.yaml)

You can include a YAML formatted environment manifest in the root of your application source bundle to configure the environment name, solution stack and environment links to use when creating your environment. An environment manifest uses the same format as Saved Configurations.

This file format includes support for environment groups. To use groups, specify the environment name in the manifest with a + symbol at the end. When you create or update the environment, specify the group name with --group-name (AWS CLI) or --env-group-suffix (EB CLI). For more information on groups, see Creating and Updating Groups of AWS Elastic Beanstalk Environments.

The following example manifest defines an web server environment with a link to a worker environment component that it is dependent upon. The manifest uses groups to allow creating multiple environments with the same source bundle:
