Before configuring, setting up and deploying a gerrit stack on AWS, there are some one-off operations that are required. These includes key creations, certificates, docker registries etc. The prerequisites to run this stack are:

  • a registered and correctly configured domain in Route53

  • Make sure ECR repositories exist

aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/gerrit
aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/git-ssh
aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/git-daemon
aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/haproxy
aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/syslog-sidecar
aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/prometheus
aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/grafana
aws ecr create-repository --repository-name aws-gerrit/git-gc
  • to upload required credentials to AWS Secret Manager execute the secrets configuration documentation steps.

  • an SSL Certificate in AWS Certificate Manager (you can find more information on how to create and handle certificates in AWS here

  • An S3 bucket is required in order to store cloudformation templates that are used to build the stacks. You must edit the common.env file and set the TEMPLATE_BUCKET_NAME. The bucket will then be created the first time you run a deployment. Note that the at the moment the bucket accessibility is public.
