AWS Sample Stack

You can use this stack to spin up a private network as well as resource classes that will let you provision resources in that network.



  • Crossplane should be installed.
  • AWS Provider should be installed and its version should be at least 0.7.1

If you have crossplane-cli installed, you can use the following command to install:

# Do not forget to change <version> with the correct version.
kubectl crossplane stack install --cluster -n crossplane-system 'crossplane/stack-aws-sample:<version>' aws-sample

If you don't have crossplane-cli installed, you need to create the following YAML to install:

kind: ClusterStackInstall
  name: "aws-sample"
  namespace: crossplane-system
  package: "crossplane/stack-aws-sample:<version>"

Usage Instructions

You can create the following YAML to trigger creation of:

and the following resource classes with minimal hardware requirements that will let you create instances that are connected to that network.

kind: AWSSample
  name: test
  region: us-west-2
    name: aws-account-creds
    namespace: crossplane-system
    key: credentials

In Crossplane, the resource classes that are annotated with "true" are used as default if the claim doesn't specify a resource class selector. The resource classes you create via the AWSSample instance above will deploy all of its resource classes as default. If you'd like those defaulting annotations to be removed, you need to add the following to AWSSample instance above: true


Run make

Test Locally


Run make and then run the following command to copy the image into your minikube node's image registry:

# Do not forget to specify <version>
docker save "crossplane/stack-aws-sample:<version>" | (eval "$(minikube docker-env --shell bash)" && docker load)

After running this, you can use the installation command and the image loaded into minikube node will be picked up.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
