The directory structure is like: The YAML file named "Axios-Based-HTTP-Testing-Tool.yaml" will be used in the following steps.

Steps to set up Axios Based HTTP Testing Tool

Please follow the subsequent steps to set up Axios Based HTTP Testing Tool on AWS CloudFormation.

  1. Open CloudFormation console, click "Create stack" button and choose "With new resources (standard)" option:

  2. Now we entered "Create stack" step, select "Template is ready" in "Prerequisite - Prepare template" section which is actived by default, select "Upload a template file" in "Specify template" section and click "Choose file" button to open the uploading window:

  3. Choose "Axios-Based-HTTP-Testing-Tool.yaml" in the uploading window:

  4. After file choosing, the name of the file "Axios-Based-HTTP-Testing-Tool.yaml" will appeared aside "Choose file" button, now we can click "Next" button to continue:

  5. Now we entered "Specify stack details" step, enter a stack name in the "Stack name" section, then select an existing EC2 KeyPair to enable SSH access to the instances for "KeyName" in the "Parameters" section, "LatestAmiId" has an default value which stand for the latest AMI of "Amazon Linux 2", you can keep this default value in most circumstance. After filling this fields, click "Next" button:

  6. In the "Configure stack options" step, you can just keep the default values or modify some fields as needed: Click "Next" button to continue:

  7. The next step is "Review", here we can review the whole configuration we just made, if there is no problem, click "Submit" button to start the progress of stack creation:

  8. Now the creation progress is starting, we can see events in the "Events" panel and we can also manually refresh events by click "Refresh" button:

  9. When the creation progress completed, we can switch to the "Outputs" panel and the visit URL of axios will be shown in the panel:

  10. Visit the URL, and we can see the UI of the HTTP testing tool featured by axios, now we successfully finished the deployment section.
