Overview

Record user actions and generate CloudWatch Synthetics Canary scripts.

Use the CloudWatch Synthetics Recorder extension to automatically record the type and click actions that you take on your web site and convert these actions to a Node.js script. You can then use the script to create a canary in Amazon Cloudwatch Synthetics. CloudWatch Synthetics canaries are configurable scripts that run on a schedule to monitor your endpoints and APIs. Canaries can follow the same routes and perform the same actions as a customer, which makes it possible for you to continually verify your customer experience even when you don't have any customer traffic on your applications. For more information about CloudWatch Synthetics, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudWatch/latest/monitoring/CloudWatch_Synthetics_Canaries.html. By installing or using this extension, you agree that your installation and use of this extension is governed by https://aws.amazon.com/agreement/ or other agreement between you and AWS governing your use of our services. Credits: CloudWatch Synthetics Recorder is based on the Headless recorder(https://github.com/checkly/headless-recorder).

So we have only started using Canary with API and checked specific urls rather than end to end testing.

In the interest of full disclosure I am an employee of AWS but do not work for CloudWatch. The synthetics recorder has been super useful for me so far! The way I use the recorder is that I will click through a flow that I want to test, generate the script, and then use that script as a skeleton as to the flow that I want to write a canary for. There has been a bit of drama with the source of this plugin but it seems CW really wants to make it right and have added credits to the extension's de... Show more
