Now that we have all our resources configured, let’s go ahead and deploy our entire infrastructure.

We should mention though that our current project has all of our resources and the Lambda functions that we had created in the first part of our tutorial. This is a common trend in serverless projects. Your code and infrastructure are not treated differently. Of course, as your projects get larger, you end up splitting them up. So you might have a separate Serverless Framework project that deploys your infrastructure while a different project just deploys your Lambda functions.

Deploy Your Project

Deploying our project is fairly straightforward thanks to our serverless deploy command. So go ahead and run this from the root of your project.

$ serverless deploy -v

Your output should look something like this:

Serverless: Stack update finished...

A couple of things to note here:

  • We are deploying to a stage called dev. This has been set in our serverless.yml under the provider: block. We can override this by explicitly passing it in by running the serverless deploy --stage $STAGE_NAME command instead.

  • Our deploy command (with the -v option) prints out the output we had requested in our resources. For example, AttachmentsBucketName is the S3 file uploads bucket that was created and the UserPoolId is the Id of our User Pool.

  • Finally, you can run the deploy command and CloudFormation will only update the parts that have changed. So you can confidently run this command without worrying about it re-creating your entire infrastructure from scratch.

And that’s it! Our entire infrastructure is completely configured and deployed automatically.

Next, we will add a new API (and Lambda function) to work with 3rd party APIs. In our case we are going to add an API that will use Stripe to bill the users of our notes app!
