Configuring the application process with a Procfile - AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Configuring the application process with a Procfile

You can include a file called Procfile at the root of your source bundle to specify the command that starts your application.

Example Procfile

web: node index.js

For information about Procfile usage, expand the Buildfile and Procfile section in Extending Elastic Beanstalk Linux platforms.

Note

This feature replaces the legacy NodeCommand option in the aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:nodejs namespace.
