Serverless- Packer AMI Build CI/CD and ASG Instance Refresh

In this post, we would be solving two problems. The first one is “How to create CI/CD pipeline for Hashicorp Packer AMI builder” and the second one is “How to automatically refresh AWS Autoscaling Group instances automatically without any downtime.”

Let’s talk about the scenario which I have created to demonstrate the solution for the above two problems. So, we would be creating a simple web server based on Apache HTTPd service. It will be highly available using the Autoscaling group backed by Launch Template and load balanced with help of Application Load Balancer. Launch template will have a “PreBuild AMI with web application” and a simple user data script to start Apache HTTPd.

Serverless CI/CD on the AWS Cloud

CI/CD pipelines have long played a major role in speeding up the development and deployment of cloud-native apps. Cloud services like AWS lend themselves to more agile deployment through the services they offer as well as approaches such as Infrastructure as Code. There is no shortage of tools to help you manage your CI/CD pipeline as well.

While the majority of development teams have streamlined their pipelines to take full advantage of cloud-native features, there is still so much that can be done to refine CI/CD even further. The entire pipeline can now be built as code and managed either via Git as a single source of truth or by using visual tools to help guide the process.

The entire process can be fully automated. Even better, it can be made serverless, which allows the CI/CD pipeline to operate with immense efficiency. Git branches can even be utilized as a base for multiple pipelines. Thanks to the three tools from Amazon; AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CodeDeploy, serverless CI/CD on the AWS cloud is now easy to set up.

Working with GitHub Actions

GitHub has become one of the most widely used Source Code Repository. Its Distributed Version Control System helps the developers for faster development and Integration of their code. Recently, it launched GitHub Actions in beta which enabled developers to create automated workflows to build, test, and deploy their source code on GitHub.

In this article, we will discuss about GitHub Actions and how it can be used to build an automated software development life-cycle workflow.

Below are the things we will discuss in this article:

About GitHub Actions

Using GitHub Actions, we can create custom workflows that will help to build, test, package, release or deploy the code without leaving the GitHub UI. It enables us to build Continuous integration and Continuous Deployment capabilities directly in our repository. Here are some important features about GitHub Actions.

**YAML based process: **The workflow is written in YAML. Hence it is easy to create, read and use the actions that make up the workflow.

**One Place for everything: **By using GitHub Actions, we can build and test the developed code directly in our repository. There is no need to worry about integrating the source code repository with other build and deployment tools. Everything can be done in one single place.

**Easy to integrate code: **Since enabling CI/CD directly in the repository is possible using workflows, creating merge requests(MRs), building, testing and integrating them become way more seamless.

How To Build CI/CD Pipeline With TeamCity For Selenium Test Automation

Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) has become an essential part of modern software development cycles. As a part of continuous integration, the developer should ensure that the Integration should not break the existing code because this could lead to a negative impact on the overall quality of the project. In order to show how the integration process works, we’ll take an example of a well-known continuous integration tool, TeamCity. In this article, we will learn TeamCity concepts and integrate our test suites with TeamCity for test automation by leveraging LambdaTest cloud-based Selenium grid.

There are numerous best CI/CD tools available for building high-quality code and narrowing the gap between development and impacted teams. Besides establishing a DevOps culture in the organizations, teams enhance it by implementing best CI/CD practices throughout the Software Development Life Cycle(SDLC). These practices help the teams accelerate product development, automate the processes, and improve overall productivity.
