Setting up with AWS Proton - AWS Proton

Setting up with AWS Proton

You need to set up an AWS CodeStar connection to create services with service templates that include a service pipeline.

Verify that you have installed the AWS CLI if you plan to use it to make AWS Proton API calls.

Setting up AWS CodeStar connection

To create a service, you start by selecting a service template that defines your service infrastructure. In the console, you provide inputs to the template as you create a service from a service template. If you select a service template that includes a standard AWS Proton service pipeline, you must provide your code repository name and branch, along with an AWS CodeStar connection ARN. AWS Proton uses the connection to activate the service and pipeline in response to your source code commits.

This is one of the Prerequisites for following the steps in Getting started with the AWS Management Console.

Set up an AWS CodeStar connection.

Connect AWS Proton to your code repository with AWS CodeStar connections to prompt an AWS Proton service pipeline when a new push is made to your repository. You can connect to Bitbucket, GitHub, GitHub Enterprise and GitHub Enterprise Server repositories with AWS CodeStar connections. For more information, see AWS CodeStar connections in the AWS CodePipeline User Guide.

  1. Open the AWS Proton console.

  2. In the navigation pane, select Settings and then Repository connections to take you to the Connections page of Developer Tools Settings. The page displays a list of connections.

  3. Choose Create connection and follow the instructions.

Setting up with the AWS CLI

To use the AWS CLI to make AWS Proton API calls, verify that you have installed the latest version of the AWS CLI. For more information, see
