Using the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Application task in Bamboo

You can use the Elastic Beanstalk Application task to create, update or delete an AWS Elastic Beanstalk application (see Deploying to AWS Elastic Beanstalk for an overview of the Elastic Beanstalk component lifecycle and deployment workflow).

 

Configuration

Application Management

While useful for end to end automation and test scenarios, it is quite common to create target applications e.g. via the AWS Management Console upfront and only manage Application Versions and Environments from your build and deployment projects.

To configure an AWS Elastic Beanstalk Application task:

1. Navigate to the Tasks configuration tab for the job (this will be the default job if creating a new plan).

2. Click the name of an existing AWS Elastic Beanstalk Application task, or click Add Task and then AWS Elastic Beanstalk Application to create a new task.

3. Complete the following settings:

a. Common to all tasks

b. Actions supported by this task:

To ease common scenarios, the Create action allows to Update [the] application, if it already exists, similarly the Update action allows to Create [the] application, if it does not already exist.
