Learning Objectives

By the end of this lesson you will be able to:

Create a Hosted Zone

Create a Hosted Zone for a domain that you own.

  1. From the Management Console, select the Route 53 tab: https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.
  2. Click the Create Hosted Zone button.
  3. Name the domain in the Domain Name field. Give it the name of a domain that you own and that you can use later. I’m using a domain that I own called devopscloud.com. Your domain must be different.
  4. After entering the domain name, click the Create Hosted Zone button.
  5. Select the checkbox next to the domain. You’ll see what’s called the Delegation Set in the Hosted Zone Details panel. Each of these entries is a domain server that you will enter for your domain servers with your domain registrar.

View and execute a deployment pipeline

  1. Go to the Jenkins dashboard and select the CDPipeline.
  2. Click on the link labeled Start Build of Pipeline for TargetEnvironment.
