Deploying Docker images to AWS with API Gateway involves several key steps for a smooth and efficient process. First, retrieve and pull the updated Docker file from the repository using a standard pull command.

Next, connect the Docker account with AWS by specifying the region, account ID, and repository details to grant necessary permissions. Setting up AWS access keys and security credentials adds an extra layer of protection.

Once connected, push the new Docker image to the AWS Elastic Container Registry (ECR). Properly tag the Docker image and use the appropriate push commands to upload it to the specified repository. This setup allows direct access to the image from ECR, reducing reliance on external repositories and optimizing deployment pipelines.

API Gateway integration involves defining variables and setting up endpoints. Endpoints can be categorized into those requiring authorization (called with a valid token) and those not requiring authorization. Authorized endpoints use AWS Cognito for authentication, configured in API Gateway with appropriate authorizers and system integrations.

Non-authorized endpoints, typically for static data or public access, do not require such setups. By following these steps, the deployment pipeline becomes streamlined, ensuring secure and efficient application deployment using Docker images and AWS services.

Tagging Docker images is crucial for version tracking and management, ensuring the correct image is deployed. Proper naming conventions help maintain clarity and organization in the repository. This structured approach ensures efficient and reliable deployment across services.
