The Utoolity team is pleased to present Tasks for AWS 2.2 – this release adds a new task to create/update/rebuild/restart/swap/terminate AWS Elastic Beanstalk environments, adds new tasks to create/update/delete AWS Elastic Beanstalk applications and application versions and adds a 'Make it so' option to the AWS CloudFormation task's create/update actions.
New tasks for AWS Elastic Beanstalk
You can now facilitate Amazon Web Service's Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering AWS Elastic Beanstalk to quickly deploy and manage applications in the AWS cloud - this is enabled by three new tasks:
- Create/Update/Delete AWS Elastic Beanstalk Applications
- Create/Update/Delete AWS Elastic Beanstalk Application Versions
- Create/Update/Rebuild/Restart/Swap/Terminate AWS Elastic Beanstalk Environments
'Make it so' option for the create/update CloudFormation actions
To simplify common AWS CloudFormation usage scenarios, the Create stack action now allows to Update [the] stack, if it already exists.; similarly, the Update stack action allows to Create [the] stack, if it does not already exist.
Only shared options are supported
Please note that in both cases only the shared subset of options available for both actions is passed though to the 'Make it so' action - the more advanced options remain available via the dedicated tasks.
For more details about this release, please refer to the Tasks for AWS 2.2 Release Notes.
