Friendly Names

You can configure a layering.names map to assign friendly names to the layer name. Currently, account is supported. Example setup:


Lono.configure do |config|
  config.layering.names = {
    "111111111111" => "dev-account",
    "222222222222" => "prod-account",

This maps the 111111111111 account to a friendly name dev-account. When you build or deploy, it’ll use the friendly name. Example:

$ ls config/blueprints/demo/params/dev-account
$ lono build demo

Without the mapping, the paths would look like so:

$ ls config/blueprints/demo/params/111111111111
$ lono build demo

Here’s a useful command to check for the AWS account id.

$ aws sts get-caller-identity
    "UserId": "EXAMPLE16O4571EXAMPLE",
    "Account": "111111111111",
    "Arn": "arn:aws:iam::111111111111:user/tung"
