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.
New tasks for AWS OpsWorks
You can now facilitate Amazon Web Service's Chef based application management service AWS OpsWorks, which makes it easy to deploy and operate applications of all shapes and sizes - this is enabled by two new tasks:
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:
You can also publish a version directly with the create/update function actions.
- Create/Update/Delete aliases with the AWS Lambda Function task
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.
