Fullstack previews (Coming soon)

Coming soon: Fullstack previews are still under development.

With fullstack previews, you can set up ephemeral fullstack environments on every pull request. This allows you to test features in isolation from production. Once fullstack previews are enabled, your typical workflow would look like the following diagram:

Pull request workflow detailing how Amplify handles the deployment of ephemeral environments

  1. Your main (production branch) and featureA branch are deployed on Amplify.
  2. You and your team work on featureA until it's ready.
  3. The featureA branch is updated to main HEAD and then a pull request to main is opened.
  4. The pull request preview is deployed on Amplify and available at pr-1.appid.amplifyapp.com.
  5. Once the pull request is merged into main, the request is closed and the fullstack environment is also automatically torn down.

Once this feature is available, we will update this page with instructions for generating fullstack previews so you can view and validate proposed changes to your fullstack app before merging pull requests.
