AWS Accounts are linked to GorillaStack by deploying a CloudFormation template. When deployed this CloudFormation template:
After successfully creating your team you will notice the AWS Account Setup pane becomes available. Click Get Started to begin connecting your account. For more advanced control, you can select Customize to exclude certain triggers and actions from being available for selection in Rules (see Customizing your Account Setup for more information).
You will be prompted to choose your preferred Account setup method, via the AWS CLI or the AWS Console.
When clicking the AWS CLI option you will find a command that can be one-click copied and pasted into your command line to create the CloudFormation stack.
Before running this command you need to set up the AWS CLI for your AWS account, and/or have set the
AWS_PROFILE variable to point to the correct AWS profile.
When clicking the AWS Console option you will see a button to Launch the CloudFormation Template in the AWS Console.
Click the button and kick off the stack creation from within the AWS console.
Once the stack has been created, the included Lambda function will post back to our API with the ARN of the AWS role that was created for cross-account access. When this comes through, we will redirect you to the Rule view.
