Travis Variable Setup
- Go to your Travis Dashboard and find the project repository for the application we are working on.
- On the repository page, click “More Options” and then “Settings”
- Create an AWS_ACCESS_KEY variable and paste your IAM access key from step #13 above.
- Create an AWS_SECRET_KEY variable and paste your IAM secret key from step #13 above.
- Make a small change to your src/App.js file in the greeting text.
- In the project root, in your terminal run:
git commit -m “testing deployment”
git push origin master
- Go to your Travis Dashboard and check the status of your build.
- The status should eventually return with a green checkmark and show “build passing”
- Go to your AWS Elasticbeanstalk application
- It should say “Elastic Beanstalk is updating your environment”
- It should eventually show a green checkmark under “Health”. You will now be able to access your application at the external URL provided under the environment name.
