    Terraform AWS provider

    For the CI / CD pipeline, I had to set up Git Actions, I'd never used it before but this video was a great tutorial and really helped me understand the functionality and workflows. I had a really annoying issue where my dynamodb configurations would throw an error, (Error: error updating DynamoDB Table (...) time to live: error updating DynamoDB Table (...) Time To Live: ValidationException: TimeToLive is already disabled), every time I tried to run Terraform Apply. Turns out this is a known issue, this post helped me resolve the error.

  • tfsec

    Security scanner for your Terraform code

    Once I completed the main steps of the challenge, I went back to do some security modificaions including enabled DNSSEC, deploying WAF (I ended up removing this as the costs were quite high and instead set up account level throttling for my API) and running IAM Access Analyser to flag anything I'd over permissioned. I also set up Git commit signing and added a new Git Action workflow to run Tfsec any time I updated my terraform config files
