Example React application on AWS Amplify

I followed the steps through this tutorial: https://aws.amazon.com/de/getting-started/hands-on/build-react-app-amplify-graphql/

I is mostly well documented. But I had some obstacles:

Build specification

I had to add the backend part to the build specification:

version: 1
backend:
  phases:
    build:
      commands:
        - '# Execute Amplify CLI with the helper script'
        - amplifyPush --simple
frontend:
  phases:
    preBuild:
      commands:
        - npm ci
    build:
      commands:
         - npm run build
  artifacts:
    baseDirectory: build
    files:
      - '**/*'
  cache:
    paths:
      - node_modules/**/*

Service role

I had to create and add a service role.

First create a service role in IAM console, named it “AmplifyConsoleServiceRole-AmplifyRole”:

Then add this role in the general settings of the Amplify application:

Amplify CLI to latest version

I had to set the Live package updates for the Amplify CLI to the latest version in build image settings:

To be continued…

Unfortunately this took too much time, so I have to do the last steps (4: API and database; 5: storage) another time. Maybe there will be some other challanges I can write down here.
