Step 2. Set Up Your GitHub Token and Collect Your Information - CI/CD Pipeline for AWS CloudFormation Templates on AWS Using TaskCat

Step 2. Set Up Your GitHub Token and Collect Your Information

  1. Log in to your GitHub account.

  2. Follow the steps in the GitHub documentation to create a new (OAuth 2) token with the following scopes (permissions): admin:repo_hook and repo. If you already have a token with these permissions, you can use that. You can find a list of all your personal access tokens in https://github.com/settings/tokens.

  3. Make a note of the following information:

    • GitHub token name.

    • GitHub repository name – This repository should have the folder structure and files described earlier in the Prerequisites section.

    • Source branch name – This is the branch that CodePipeline should monitor for any changes.

    • Release branch name – This is the branch that the source branch will be merged into after a successful test.

      You will be prompted for this information when you launch the Quick Start.
