Creating Elastic Beanstalk Environments with the API

To launch a new environment

  1. Call CheckDNSAvailability with the following parameter:

    • CNAMEPrefix = SampleApp

    Example

    https://elasticbeanstalk.us-west-2.amazon.com/?CNAMEPrefix=sampleapplication &Operation=CheckDNSAvailability &AuthParams
  2. Call DescribeApplicationVersions with the following parameters:

    • ApplicationName = SampleApp

    • VersionLabel = Version2

    Example

    https://elasticbeanstalk.us-west-2.amazon.com/?ApplicationName=SampleApp &VersionLabel=Version2 &Operation=DescribeApplicationVersions &AuthParams
  3. Call CreateConfigurationTemplate with the following parameters:

    • ApplicationName = SampleApp

    • TemplateName = MyConfigTemplate

    • SolutionStackName = 64bit%20Amazon%20Linux%202015.03%20v2.0.0%20running%20Ruby%202.2%20(Passenger%20Standalone)

    Example

    https://elasticbeanstalk.us-west-2.amazon.com/?ApplicationName=SampleApp &TemplateName=MyConfigTemplate &Operation=CreateConfigurationTemplate &SolutionStackName=64bit%20Amazon%20Linux%202015.03%20v2.0.0%20running%20Ruby%202.2%20(Passenger%20Standalone) &AuthParams
  4. Call CreateEnvironment with one of the following sets of parameters.

    1. Use the following for a web server environment tier:

      • EnvironmentName = SampleAppEnv2

      • VersionLabel = Version2

      • Description = description

      • TemplateName = MyConfigTemplate

      • ApplicationName = SampleApp

      • CNAMEPrefix = sampleapplication

      • OptionSettings.member.1.Namespace = aws:autoscaling:launchconfiguration

      • OptionSettings.member.1.OptionName = IamInstanceProfile

      • OptionSettings.member.1.Value = ElasticBeanstalkProfile

      Example

      https://elasticbeanstalk.us-west-2.amazon.com/?ApplicationName=SampleApp &VersionLabel=Version2 &EnvironmentName=SampleAppEnv2 &TemplateName=MyConfigTemplate &CNAMEPrefix=sampleapplication &Description=description &Operation=CreateEnvironment &OptionSettings.member.1.Namespace=aws%3Aautoscaling%3Alaunchconfiguration &OptionSettings.member.1.OptionName=IamInstanceProfile &OptionSettings.member.1.Value=ElasticBeanstalkProfile &AuthParams
    2. Use the following for a worker environment tier:

      • EnvironmentName = SampleAppEnv2

      • VersionLabel = Version2

      • Description = description

      • TemplateName = MyConfigTemplate

      • ApplicationName = SampleApp

      • Tier = Worker

      • OptionSettings.member.1.Namespace = aws:autoscaling:launchconfiguration

      • OptionSettings.member.1.OptionName = IamInstanceProfile

      • OptionSettings.member.1.Value = ElasticBeanstalkProfile

      • OptionSettings.member.2.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.2.OptionName = WorkerQueueURL

      • OptionSettings.member.2.Value = sqsd.elasticbeanstalk.us-west-2.amazon.com

      • OptionSettings.member.3.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.3.OptionName = HttpPath

      • OptionSettings.member.3.Value = /

      • OptionSettings.member.4.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.4.OptionName = MimeType

      • OptionSettings.member.4.Value = application/json

      • OptionSettings.member.5.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.5.OptionName = HttpConnections

      • OptionSettings.member.5.Value = 75

      • OptionSettings.member.6.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.6.OptionName = ConnectTimeout

      • OptionSettings.member.6.Value = 10

      • OptionSettings.member.7.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.7.OptionName = InactivityTimeout

      • OptionSettings.member.7.Value = 10

      • OptionSettings.member.8.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.8.OptionName = VisibilityTimeout

      • OptionSettings.member.8.Value = 60

      • OptionSettings.member.9.Namespace = aws:elasticbeanstalk:sqsd

      • OptionSettings.member.9.OptionName = RetentionPeriod

      • OptionSettings.member.9.Value = 345600

      Example

      https://elasticbeanstalk.us-west-2.amazon.com/?ApplicationName=SampleApp &VersionLabel=Version2 &EnvironmentName=SampleAppEnv2 &TemplateName=MyConfigTemplate &Description=description &Tier=Worker &Operation=CreateEnvironment &OptionSettings.member.1.Namespace=aws%3Aautoscaling%3Alaunchconfiguration &OptionSettings.member.1.OptionName=IamInstanceProfile &OptionSettings.member.1.Value=ElasticBeanstalkProfile &OptionSettings.member.2.Namespace=aws%3Aelasticbeanstalk%3Asqsd &OptionSettings.member.2.OptionName=WorkerQueueURL &OptionSettings.member.2.Value=sqsd.elasticbeanstalk.us-west-2.amazon.com &OptionSettings.member.3.Namespace=aws%3elasticbeanstalk%3sqsd &OptionSettings.member.3.OptionName=HttpPath &OptionSettings.member.3.Value=%2F &OptionSettings.member.4.Namespace=aws%3Aelasticbeanstalk%3Asqsd &OptionSettings.member.4.OptionName=MimeType &OptionSettings.member.4.Value=application%2Fjson &OptionSettings.member.5.Namespace=aws%3Aelasticbeanstalk%3Asqsd &OptionSettings.member.5.OptionName=HttpConnections &OptionSettings.member.5.Value=75 &OptionSettings.member.6.Namespace=aws%3Aelasticbeanstalk%3Asqsd &OptionSettings.member.6.OptionName=ConnectTimeout &OptionSettings.member.6.Value=10 &OptionSettings.member.7.Namespace=aws%3Aelasticbeanstalk%3Asqsd &OptionSettings.member.7.OptionName=InactivityTimeout &OptionSettings.member.7.Value=10 &OptionSettings.member.8.Namespace=aws%3Aelasticbeanstalk%3Asqsd &OptionSettings.member.8.OptionName=VisibilityTimeout &OptionSettings.member.8.Value=60 &OptionSettings.member.9.Namespace=aws%3Aelasticbeanstalk%3Asqsd &OptionSettings.member.9.OptionName=RetentionPeriod &OptionSettings.member.9.Value=345600 &AuthParams
