โœ”๏ธ Visual Studio 2022 or later with the .NET 6 SDK and AWS Toolkit installed.

โœ”๏ธ An AWS account and basic knowledge of AWS Elastic Beanstalk and .NET 6 Web Applications.

๐Ÿ”„ Step 1: Build a .NET 6 Web Application with Visual Studio

If you don't have a .NET 6 based web app already, you can create one by following these steps:

๐Ÿ”ง Create a new ASP.NET Core Razor Pages web app.

๐Ÿ”ง Name your application (e.g., cloudiofy-web-app-001).

๐Ÿ”ง Build your .NET 6-based demo application.

๐Ÿ”„ Step 2: Deploy the .NET 6 Application in Elastic Beanstalk from Visual Studio

  1. Open your .NET 6 application in Visual Studio.

  2. If you haven't already, sign in to your AWS account using AWS Explorer in Visual Studio.

  3. Right-click on the project in the Solution Explorer and select "Publish to AWS Beanstalk (Legacy).."

  4. In the Publish to AWS Elastic Beanstalk wizard:

    • Select the "AWS Credentials" and "Region" where you want to deploy.

    • Choose "Create a new Elastic Beanstalk environment" and click "Next."

  5. Configure your environment:

    • Choose a unique application and environment name.

    • Check the availability of the "URL."

  6. Configure AWS options:

    • Select the "Container Type" and "Instance Type."

  11. Verify the environment status from the AWS console under the "Elastic Beanstalk" service and click on "Environment."

๐Ÿ”„ Step 3: Test Your Application Congratulations!

๐ŸŽ‰ You have successfully deployed your .NET 6 application in Elastic Beanstalk from Visual Studio. Now, let's test it:

  1. Open a web browser and access your application using the provided URL.

  2. Ensure that your application is functioning as expected.


If necessary, you can terminate the deployed environment from Visual Studio or manually delete the created resources from the AWS console.
