AWS CodePipeline

Applies to CrossBrowserTesting SaaS, last modified on July 07, 2021

For this document, we provide an example Lambda Function located in our AWS CodePipeline GitHub Repository.

AWS CodePipeline is a continuous delivery tool that lets you automate your development process quickly, safely, and at scale. Through AWS CodePipeline’s integration with many other AWS and third party services such as ECS, S3, Elastic Beanstalk, CloudFormation, GitHub, and Jenkins, every time you commit code, a build is created and automatically run, allowing you to test every commit.

In this guide we will use AWS CodePipeline with GitHub and an AWS Lambda Function for testing using the Selenium WebDriver and the JavaScript programming language.
