We are happy to introduce in coordination with AWS, a new AWS CloudFormation resource that allows users to automatically create GitHub repositories from an AWS CloudFormation template. The new tool allows users to grow efficiency and speed their time to innovation by automating key portions of the infrastructure creation process. The new open-source tool will be managed and updated by Flux7 and is available now via the AWS CloudFormation registry.
AWS CloudFormation + GitHub Repository
The new solution is an AWS CloudFormation third-party resource for GitHub that can be pulled from the AWS CloudFormation registry. Specifically, the tool allows users to create new GitHub repositories when they write GitHub information into their AWS CloudFormation template. When the template is deployed, the repo is automatically created, using the name, repository properties and other resource parameters included in the template.
