Reference Architecture: Cross Account AWS CodePipeline

This reference architecture demonstrates how to push code hosted in AWS CodeCommit repository in Development Account, use AWS CodeBuild to do application build, store the output artifacts in S3Bucket and deploy these artifacts to a Test AWS account, validate your deployment then approve the changes to be deployed to the Production Account using AWS CloudFormation. This orchestration of code movement from code checkin to deployment is securely handled by AWS CodePipeline.

Running the example

You need to create the CodeCommit repository (steps below) before making the pipeline infrastructure. When creating the pipeline infrastructure, you can use the single-click-cross-account-pipeline.sh script or else follow the "Walkthrough" section of the blog post.

Pre-requisites

  1. Install the AWS CLI.
  2. Intall the SAM CLI.
  3. Clone this repository.
  4. Have the following AWS accounts (if using Control Tower, this is useful):
    • Tooling
    • Development
    • Test
    • Production

1. Create a sample application using Serverless Application Model (SAM).

We will create a sample serverless application locally, then commit the code to CodeCommit. From there, CodePipeline will build the serverless application, deploy it using CloudFormation to a test account then you will accept/reject the change from the pipeline. If you accept the review in CodePipeline, the application will be deployed to production using CloudFormation.

Create the sample application locally

From your terminal application/command line, execute the following command:

sam init 
# Use the values: 
# - Template source:  Quick Start template
# - Runtime: Python 3.7
# - Project Name: sample-lambda

This creates a directory named sample-lambda in your current directory, which contains the code for a serverless application.

Navigate to the project folder and initialize the git client

cd sample-lambda/
git init

2. Create AWS CodeCommit repository in Development Account

Console Method

Follow the instructions here to create a CodeCommit repository in the Development Account. Name your repository as sample-lambda.

Terminal Method

From your terminal application, execute the following command. You may refer here for further details on installing the AWS CLI if needed.

aws codecommit create-repository --repository-name sample-lambda --repository-description "Sample Serverless App" --profile {{DEV-ACCOUNT-PROFILE}}

Note the cloneUrlHttp URL in the response from above CLI.

3. Add a new remote

From your terminal application, execute the following command:

git remote add AWSCodeCommit {{HTTP_CLONE_URL_FROM_STEP_2}}

Follow the instructions here for local git setup required to push code to CodeCommit repository.

Tip: The AWS CodeCommit Helper is useful to obtain Codecommit credentials using a profile, for example:

git config --global credential.helper '!aws --profile {{YOUR-PROFILE-HERE}} codecommit credential-helper $@'

4. Push the code AWS CodeCommit

From your terminal application, execute the following command:

git add .
git commit -m "First push of my SAM app!"
git push AWSCodeCommit master

5. See the pipeline in action.

Once you have your pipeline configured as per the blog post across your tools, development, test and production AWS accounts, codepipeline will listen for new deployments to your 'sample-lambda' repository. You can configure the pipeline by following the walkthrough in the blog post or by running the single-click-cross-account-pipeline.sh script in this repo. Once it's spun up, push a change to the CodeCommit repo you just made then log in to your tools AWS account to ensure your codepipeline execution has kicked off.

Next Steps

  • If you want to deploy a different type of application, you will need to edit the buildspec file defined in the code-pipeline.yaml file.
