Run the following command to download the configuration from the Elastic Beanstalk environment:
jack get hi-web-stag
You should see something similar to this:
Let’s take a look the contents of the downloaded file:
AWSConfigurationTemplateVersion: 188.8.131.52 EnvironmentConfigurationMetadata: Description: Configuration created from the EB CLI using "eb config save". EnvironmentTier: Name: WebServer Type: Standard OptionSettings: aws:autoscaling:launchconfiguration: EC2KeyName: default IamInstanceProfile: aws-elasticbeanstalk-ec2-role InstanceType: t2.micro aws:autoscaling:updatepolicy:rollingupdate: RollingUpdateEnabled: true RollingUpdateType: Health aws:elasticbeanstalk:command: BatchSize: '30' BatchSizeType: Percentage aws:elasticbeanstalk:environment: ServiceRole: aws-elasticbeanstalk-service-role aws:elasticbeanstalk:healthreporting:system: SystemType: enhanced aws:elb:loadbalancer: CrossZone: true aws:elb:policies: ConnectionDrainingEnabled: true Platform: PlatformArn: arn:aws:elasticbeanstalk:us-west-2::platform/Docker running on 64bit Amazon Linux/2.1.0
As you can see the configuration file contains everything there is to know about the Elastic Beanstalk environment. These settings include ELB behavior, VPC, LaunchConfiguration, AutoScaling settings, hard drive size, environment variables, etc. With this file you can completely rebuild the environment and even “clone” it across Elastic Beanstalk applications.
If you would like to save the config file under a different path, you can use the
jack get hi-web-stag -c my-config
This saves the config file to
jack/cfg/my-config.cfg.yml. You can also override which config file to use with the
-c flag when creating EB environments like so:
jack create hi-web-stag-2 -c my-config
If you would like to override the application name convention you can use the
jack create hi-web-stag-2 --app myapp
