How to integrate AWS CodeBuild with Cloudsmith

Cloudsmith can be used as a target for all the assets created using AWS CodeBuild. This guide shows you how to use the Cloudsmith CLI to upload/push a Debian package to your Cloudsmith repo.

All formats are supported.

No Code Uploading

The Cloudsmith CLI gives you full control when connecting to any CI/CD process; allowing you to upload any of our support formats or query your repositories. Just configure your API Key, install the CLI, and you'll be all set.

Getting Started

Integrating Cloudsmith as part of your AWS CodeBuild project is as simple as installing the Cloudsmith CLI during your build and then using the cloudsmith push command to upload the artifacts from your build process to your Cloudsmith repository.

Adding your API Key to AWS

In order to use the Cloudsmith CLI with AWS CodeBuild, we would recommend that you add your Cloudsmith API-Key as an environment variable for the project. You can do this using AWS Secrets Manager.

We do not recommend adding the API-Key itself directly into the buildspec.yaml file for the AWS CodeBuild project as it will then be revealed in any resulting logs from the build.

To reference a secret stored in AWS Secrets Manager in your AWS CodeBuild buildspec.yaml file you would use the following syntax:

env:
  secrets-manager:
    CLOUDSMITH_API_KEY: CodeBuild/CloudsmithAPI:CLOUDSMITH_API_KEY

For further details on obtaining your Cloudsmith API-Key see:

And for further details on using AWS Secrets Manager with AWS CodeBuild see:

Adding the Cloudsmith CLI to your CodeBuild Project

To add the Cloudsmith CLI to your AWS CodeBuild Project, add the following command to the install phase of your buildspec.yaml file:

install:
  commands:
    - pip install cloudsmith-cli

Uploading a built artifact to Cloudsmith

To upload an artifact from a build to a Cloudsmith repository, add the cloudsmith push command to the post build phase of your buildspec.yaml file:

post_build:
  commands:
    - cloudsmith push FORMAT OWNER/REPOSITORY FILENAME

Please see the Cloudsmith CLI documentation for more details of the syntax of the cloudsmith push command and the Supported Formats page for examples of the cloudsmith push command for each supported format.


Example buildspec.yaml

The following is an example of a complete (but minimal) buildspec.yaml file (as used in our demo video) that will build a Debian package from a source GitHub repository specified in the AWS console project settings, and then upload it to a Cloudsmith repository:

version: 0.2

env:
  secrets-manager:
    CLOUDSMITH_API_KEY: CodeBuild/CloudsmithAPI:CLOUDSMITH_API_KEY

phases:
  install:
    runtime-versions:
      python: 3.x
    commands:
      - apt update
      - apt-get install ruby ruby-dev rubygems build-essential -y
      - gem install --no-document fpm
      - pip install cloudsmith-cli
  build:
    commands:
      - make
      - fpm -f -s dir -t deb -v 1.0.1 -n cloudsmith-codebuild-test .
  post_build:
    commands:
      - echo "Uploading deb package to Cloudsmith repo"
      - cloudsmith push deb demo/codebuild-demo/debian/buster cloudsmith-codebuild-test_1.0.1_amd64.deb
