GitHub Actions - AWS


  • You must have an AWS account setup and ready to create resources.
  • Create a service account and generate an AWS access key and key id.

AWS Credentials

Setup the following as env variables for cloud runner to use:

  • AWS_DEFAULT_REGION (should be the same AWS region as the base stack e.g eu-west-2)

If you're using GitHub you can use a GitHub Action:

- name: Configure AWS Credentials
uses: aws-actions/configure-aws-credentials@v1
aws-access-key-id: ${{ secrets.AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID }}
aws-secret-access-key: ${{ secrets.AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY }}
aws-region: eu-west-2

Note: This enables Cloud Runner access AWS.

Configuration For AWS Cloud Runner Jobs

Refer to Configuration page or the example below.

Allowed CPU/Memory Combinations

There are some limitations to the CPU and Memory parameters. AWS will only accept the following combinations: AWS Fargate Documentation, Allowed CPU and memory values (Task Definitions)

Summary Of Format

  • Values are represented as 1024:1 GB or CPU.
  • Do not include the vCPU or GB suffix.
  • 1 CPU can go to a max of 6 GB of memory. 2 CPU's are required to go higher.

Valid CPU and Memory Values

- cloudRunnerMemory: 4096
- cloudRunnerCpu: 1024
