So, let us get started,

What Is AWS CodeStar?

AWS CodeStar helps you create, manage, and work with software development projects on Amazon Web Services. This service helps you with various Devops operations so that you can develop, build and also deploy applications on AWS. As already mentioned, it helps simplify DevOps processes and to do that it brings popular AWS DevOps Services under one roof. Those services are:

  • For building the code you have AWS CodeBuild
  • Deployment is taken care by AWS CodeDeploy
  • For version control we have AWS CodeCommit
  • AWS CodePipeline for building CI/CD Pipelines

sample - AWS CodeStar - Edureka

A project lets you create and integrates AWS services for the software development toolchain. The project template may include source control, build, deploy, virtual servers or serverless resources, and more. 

You may take a look at this video to know more about the above-mentioned services:

This Edureka “CodeBuild CodePipeline CodeDeploy CodeCommit in AWS” video will give you a thorough and insightful overview of all the concepts related to CI/CD services in AWS.

So this was about what is AWS CodeStar, let us now understand what all can it do?

What Can I Do With This Service?

AWS CodeStar facilitates following features:

Start new projects in minutes

AWS CodeStar provides you with different platforms and tools to create and host your applications. Since it takes care of setting up your project resources, you can collaborate and make different tools work together. This in turn helps you launch new projects very easily and in less time.

Visualize, operate, and collaborate on your projects

The process of collaboration becomes easier because dashboards for this service let you visualize all the actions carried out during the course of project development.

Quick iteration with required tools

AWS CodeStar comes equipped with integrated development tool chain for your project. You can push code and changes can automatically be deployed. Integration with issue tracking allows you to keep track of what needs to be done next.
You and your team can work together more quickly and efficiently across all phases of code delivery.

Now Let us go ahead and take a look at some Important Components of this service:

Important Components

This Service has four components it works around, those are:

  • Project Template
  • Teams
  • Dashboards
  • Extensions

Let us try and understand these one by one:

Project Templates

These ensure that you have sample templates to work with.

This template ensures you spend very less time configuring the resources and more time on focusing on business goals. It lets you select the following for automatic provisioning,

  • Application type
  • Programming language
  • Compute platform

Later you have the option of replacing your sample application with other application if needed.


Once the template and project requirements are full-filled, you need to focus on granting appropriate access and managing the team that is going to work on the project. In AWS CodeStar, each project has a project team. A user can belong to multiple AWS CodeStar projects and have different AWS CodeStar roles (and thus, different permissions) in each project.

In AWS CodeStar, team members may opt to choose an alias. They can also add an email address so other team members can contact them. Team members who are not owners cannot change their AWS CodeStar role for the project.

AWS CodeStar Provides you with a Dashboard, which is very interactive and intuitive and lets you do the following:

  • Add, Remove, or Move Tiles on Your Dashboard
  • Add a Project Extension to Your Dashboard
  • Customize the Team Wiki Tile


This service also provides you with extensions which let you add tiles and functionality to your dashboard. To do that, choose Extensions. Next to the extension you have an option called Show on dashboard. You must select it. To set up an extension that is displayed on your dashboard, choose the connect button or command on the extension, and then follow instructions to complete setup.

Extensions are very important, this service also gives you the freedom to add JIRA extensions which are centric these days, especially when it comes to CI/CD projects. You can learn more from the AWS Solutions Architect Training.
