Tasks for AWS 2.9 Release Notes

30 November 2015

The Utoolity team is pleased to present Tasks for AWS 2.9 – this release adds new tasks to deploy and operate AWS OpsWorks apps, adds new actions to support AWS Lambda versions and aliases, and adds a ZIP archive option for artifact uploads to Amazon S3. You can now create/update/delete  OpsWorks Apps, run app and stack commands with OpsWorks Deployments, publish new Lambda Function versions and create/update/delete Lambda Function aliases, and upload ZIP archives as S3 Objects.

If you are using Bamboo remote agents, please review the Tasks for AWS 2.9 Upgrade Notes for important information about this release.

New actions for AWS Lambda

You can now also use the recently introduced  AWS Lambda Function Versioning and Aliases - this is enabled by four new actions:

The tasks to deploy and manage event-driven code to AWS Lambda have been introduced in Tasks for AWS 2.8. 


ZIP archive option for Amazon S3

You can now compress files into a ZIP archive before uploading with the Amazon S3 Object task to ease using AWS services that support or require the deployment artifact to be a ZIP archive - this is enabled by a new option for the Upload File(s) action:

  • Upload as ZIP archive - Check to compress the selected file(s) into a single ZIP archive before uploading. Uncheck to upload separately.
