The LazyStack SMF provides an end-to-end Software Management Framework integrating AWS Services, GitHub and the LazyStack developer tools. In the Install process, the following AWS Organization structure was created.
The LazyStackSMF provides a collaborative workflow based on "Feature Branch Development using GitHub Pull Requests".
A high-level "AWS" view of this organization looks like this:
In the diagram above, GitHub integration is shown and GitHub Pull Requests are used to coordinate the review and approval of features coded by a developer. In this diagram we see:
An abstract view of the steps in the collaborative development process looks like this:
A PR Stack is named after the PR branch that created it. This means there can be many PR Stacks deployed in the System Test account at the same time. To review a Pull Request Stack, you need to know how to connect to it. With that in mind, the CI/CD pipeline that creates the PR Stack also generates and adds a AwsSettings.json file to the PR branch in the repository. This file is usually found at Stacks/Test/AwsSettings.json. For more information on AwsSettings.json file, click here . The LazyStack Tutorial covers the use of AwsSettings.json files, see Configure PetStoreTests Project.
