I have multiple projects with a CFT stored in Git. However, these CFT files are too large (exceed Amazon's 51k byte limit) and have to be stored in S3. What is an effective method that would allow these templates to be stored in S3 and SCM? Our CloudFormation stacks are deployed via jenkins pipelines.

  • The simplest approach and one that we use (so simple I'm not sure it's worth a full answer) is to have a deployment task that copies your templates into S3, then trigger the CFN stack creation or update. – Marakai Sep 3 '18 at 0:09
