AWS Automation Cookbook

Overview of this book

AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodeBuild, and CodePipeline are scalable services offered by AWS that automate an application's build and deployment pipeline. In order to deliver tremendous speed and agility, every organization is moving toward automating their entire application pipeline. This book will cover all the AWS services required to automate your deployment to your instances. You'll begin by setting up and using one of the AWS services for automation –CodeCommit. Next, you'll learn how to build a sample Maven and NodeJS application using CodeBuild. After you've built the application, you'll see how to use CodeDeploy to deploy the application in EC2/Auto Scaling. You'll also build a highly scalable and fault tolerant Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment (CD) pipeline using some easy-to-follow recipes. Following this, you'll achieve CI/CD for a microservice application and reduce the risk within your software development life cycle globally. You'll also learn to set up an infrastructure using CloudFormation templates and Ansible, and see how to automate AWS resources using AWS Lambda. Finally, you'll learn to automate instances in AWS and automate the deployment lifecycle of applications. By the end of this book, you'll be able to minimize application downtime and implement CI/CD, gaining total control over your software development lifecycle.

Troubleshooting with CodeBuild

Few of the possible issues are discussed over here:

1. Problem: "Failed to upload artifacts: Invalid arn" When Running a Build

When you run a build, the UPLOAD_ARTIFACTS build phase fails with the error Failed to upload artifacts: Invalid arn.

Possibilities: Your Amazon S3 output bucket is in a different AWS region than the AWS CodeBuild build project.

Solutions: You can edit the project and point the proper s3 bucket which is in your region.

2. Problem: Runtime error (did not find expected alphabetic or numeric character at line XX)

After the provisioning phase of build, when the DOWNLOAD_SOURCE phase is encountered, it will try to check the BuildSpec.yml and fail at that moment.

Possibilities: The syntax and expected output of the BuildSpec.yml parameter will not be correct.

Solutions: You can edit the BuildSpec.yml properly and mention...
