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:
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/**/*
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.
