Connect an AWS account
The process for connecting an AWS account takes you to the CloudFormation AWS Console where you are guided to create a new CloudFormation Stack. The connection is per region and the CloudFormation Stack must be installed in every region you wish to deploy to.
The stack includes the following resources:
- IAM Role - enables Altostra to perform actions in your connected account on your behalf. This is an AWS best practice for creating cross account trust relationships, it's under your control and it frees your from the need to provide Altostra with secret keys.
- S3 Bucket - used as a repository for your project images.
