Deploy Netflix Clone on Cloud using Jenkins - DevSecOps Project!


Phase 1: Initial Setup and Deployment

Step 1: Launch EC2 (Ubuntu 22.04):

  • Provision an EC2 instance on AWS with Ubuntu 22.04.

  • Connect to the instance using SSH.

Step 2: Clone the Code:

  • Update all the packages and then clone the code.

  • Clone your application's code repository onto the EC2 instance:

Step 3: Install Docker and Run the App Using a Container:

  • Set up Docker on the EC2 instance:

      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install -y
      sudo usermod -aG docker $USER  # Replace with your system's username, e.g., 'ubuntu'
      newgrp docker
      sudo chmod 777 /var/run/docker.sock
  • Build and run your application using Docker containers:

      docker build -t netflix .
      docker run -d --name netflix -p 8081:80 netflix:latest
      #to delete
      docker stop <containerid>
      docker rmi -f netflix

It will show an error cause you need API key

Step 4: Get the API Key:

  • Open a web browser and navigate to TMDB (The Movie Database) website.

  • Click on "Login" and create an account.

  • Once logged in, go to your profile and select "Settings."

  • Click on "API" from the left-side panel.

  • Create a new API key by clicking "Create" and accepting the terms and conditions.

  • Provide the required basic details and click "Submit."

  • You will receive your TMDB API key.

Now recreate the Docker image with your api key:

docker build --build-arg TMDB_V3_API_KEY=<your-api-key> -t netflix .

Phase 2: Security

  1. Install SonarQube and Trivy:

    • Install SonarQube and Trivy on the EC2 instance to scan for vulnerabilities.


        docker run -d --name sonar -p 9000:9000 sonarqube:lts-community

To access:

publicIP:9000 (by default username & password is admin)

To install Trivy:

sudo apt-get install wget apt-transport-https gnupg lsb-release
wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -
echo deb $(lsb_release -sc) main | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/trivy.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install trivy

to scan image using trivy

trivy image <imageid>
  1. Integrate SonarQube and Configure:

    • Integrate SonarQube with your CI/CD pipeline.

    • Configure SonarQube to analyze code for quality and security issues.

Phase 3: CI/CD Setup

  1. Install Jenkins for Automation:

    • Install Jenkins on the EC2 instance to automate deployment: Install Java
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install fontconfig openjdk-17-jre
    java -version
    openjdk version "17.0.8" 2023-07-18
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 17.0.8+7-Debian-1deb12u1)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.0.8+7-Debian-1deb12u1, mixed mode, sharing)

    sudo wget -O /usr/share/keyrings/jenkins-keyring.asc \
    echo deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/jenkins-keyring.asc] \ binary/ | sudo tee \
    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jenkins.list > /dev/null
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install jenkins
    sudo systemctl start jenkins
    sudo systemctl enable jenkins
    • Access Jenkins in a web browser using the public IP of your EC2 instance.


  1. Install Necessary Plugins in Jenkins:

Goto Manage Jenkins →Plugins → Available Plugins →

Install below plugins

We will install a sonar scanner in the tools.

Create a Jenkins webhook

  1. Configure CI/CD Pipeline in Jenkins:
  • Create a CI/CD pipeline in Jenkins to automate your application deployment.
pipeline {
    agent any
    tools {
        jdk 'jdk17'
        nodejs 'node16'
    environment {
        SCANNER_HOME = tool 'sonar-scanner'
    stages {
        stage('clean workspace') {
            steps {
        stage('Checkout from Git') {
            steps {
                git branch: 'main', url: ''
        stage("Sonarqube Analysis") {
            steps {
                withSonarQubeEnv('sonar-server') {
                    sh '''$SCANNER_HOME/bin/sonar-scanner -Dsonar.projectName=Netflix \
        stage("quality gate") {
            steps {
                script {
                    waitForQualityGate abortPipeline: false, credentialsId: 'Sonar-token'
        stage('Install Dependencies') {
            steps {
                sh "npm install"

        stage('Deploy to container'){
                sh 'docker run -d --name netflix -p 8081:80 hassanb111/netflix:latest'

If you get docker login failed errorr

sudo su
sudo usermod -aG docker jenkins
sudo systemctl restart jenkins

Phase 4: Monitoring

  1. Install Prometheus and Grafana:

    Set up Prometheus and Grafana to monitor your application.

    Installing Prometheus:

    First, create a dedicated Linux user for Prometheus and download Prometheus:

     sudo useradd --system --no-create-home --shell /bin/false prometheus

Extract Prometheus files, move them, and create directories:

tar -xvf prometheus-2.47.1.linux-amd64.tar.gz
cd prometheus-2.47.1.linux-amd64/
sudo mkdir -p /data /etc/prometheus
sudo mv prometheus promtool /usr/local/bin/
sudo mv consoles/ console_libraries/ /etc/prometheus/
sudo mv prometheus.yml /etc/prometheus/prometheus.yml

Set ownership for directories:

sudo chown -R prometheus:prometheus /etc/prometheus/ /data/

Create a systemd unit configuration file for Prometheus:

sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/prometheus.service

Add the following content to the prometheus.service file:



ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/prometheus \
  --config.file=/etc/prometheus/prometheus.yml \
  --storage.tsdb.path=/data \
  --web.console.templates=/etc/prometheus/consoles \
  --web.console.libraries=/etc/prometheus/console_libraries \
  --web.listen-address= \


Here's a brief explanation of the key parts in this prometheus.service file:

  • User and Group specify the Linux user and group under which Prometheus will run.

  • ExecStart is where you specify the Prometheus binary path, the location of the configuration file (prometheus.yml), the storage directory, and other settings.

  • web.listen-address configures Prometheus to listen on all network interfaces on port 9090.

  • web.enable-lifecycle allows for management of Prometheus through API calls.

Enable and start Prometheus:

sudo systemctl enable prometheus
sudo systemctl start prometheus

Verify Prometheus's status:

sudo systemctl status prometheus

You can access Prometheus in a web browser using your server's IP and port 9090:


Installing Node Exporter:

Create a system user for Node Exporter and download Node Exporter:

sudo useradd --system --no-create-home --shell /bin/false node_exporter

Extract Node Exporter files, move the binary, and clean up:

tar -xvf node_exporter-1.6.1.linux-amd64.tar.gz
sudo mv node_exporter-1.6.1.linux-amd64/node_exporter /usr/local/bin/
rm -rf node_exporter*

Create a systemd unit configuration file for Node Exporter:

sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/node_exporter.service

Add the following content to the node_exporter.service file:

Description=Node Exporter


ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/node_exporter --collector.logind


Replace --collector.logind with any additional flags as needed.

Enable and start Node Exporter:

sudo systemctl enable node_exporter
sudo systemctl start node_exporter

Verify the Node Exporter's status:

sudo systemctl status node_exporter
  • You can access Node Exporter metrics in Prometheus.

  • Configure Prometheus Plugin Integration:

    Integrate Jenkins with Prometheus to monitor the CI/CD pipeline.

    Prometheus Configuration:

    To configure Prometheus to scrape metrics from Node Exporter and Jenkins, you need to modify the prometheus.yml file. Here is an example prometheus.yml configuration for your setup:

        scrape_interval: 15s
        - job_name: 'node_exporter'
            - targets: ['localhost:9100']
        - job_name: 'jenkins'
          metrics_path: '/prometheus'
            - targets: ['<your-jenkins-ip>:<your-jenkins-port>']

Make sure to replace <your-jenkins-ip> and <your-jenkins-port> with the appropriate values for your Jenkins setup.

Check the validity of the configuration file:

promtool check config /etc/prometheus/prometheus.yml

Reload the Prometheus configuration without restarting:

curl -X POST http://localhost:9090/-/reload
  1. You can access Prometheus targets at:



Install Grafana on Ubuntu 22.04 and Set it up to Work with Prometheus

Step 1: Install Dependencies:

First, ensure that all necessary dependencies are installed:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https software-properties-common

Step 2: Add the GPG Key:

Add the GPG key for Grafana:

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Step 3: Add Grafana Repository:

Add the repository for Grafana stable releases:

echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list

Step 4: Update and Install Grafana:

Update the package list and install Grafana:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install grafana

Step 5: Enable and Start Grafana Service:

To automatically start Grafana after a reboot, enable the service:

sudo systemctl enable grafana-server

Then, start Grafana:

sudo systemctl start grafana-server

Step 6: Check Grafana Status:

Verify the status of the Grafana service to ensure it's running correctly:

sudo systemctl status grafana-server

Step 7: Access Grafana Web Interface:

Open a web browser and navigate to Grafana using your server's IP address. The default port for Grafana is 3000. For example:


You'll be prompted to log in to Grafana. The default username is "admin," and the default password is also "admin."

Step 8: Change the Default Password:

When you log in for the first time, Grafana will prompt you to change the default password for security reasons. Follow the prompts to set a new password.

Step 9: Add Prometheus Data Source:

To visualize metrics, you need to add a data source. Follow these steps:

  • Click on the gear icon (⚙️) in the left sidebar to open the "Configuration" menu.

  • Select "Data Sources."

  • Click on the "Add data source" button.

  • Choose "Prometheus" as the data source type.

  • In the "HTTP" section:

    • Set the "URL" to http://localhost:9090 (assuming Prometheus is running on the same server).

    • Click the "Save & Test" button to ensure the data source is working.

Step 10: Import a Dashboard:

To make it easier to view metrics, you can import a pre-configured dashboard. Follow these steps:

  • Click on the "+" (plus) icon in the left sidebar to open the "Create" menu.

  • Select "Dashboard."

  • Click on the "Import" dashboard option.

  • Enter the dashboard code you want to import (e.g., code 1860).

  • Click the "Load" button.

  • Select the data source you added (Prometheus) from the dropdown.

  • Click on the "Import" button.

You should now have a Grafana dashboard set up to visualize metrics from Prometheus.

Grafana is a powerful tool for creating visualizations and dashboards, and you can further customize it to suit your specific monitoring needs.

That's it! You've successfully installed and set up Grafana to work with Prometheus for monitoring and visualization.

  1. Configure Prometheus Plugin Integration:

    • Integrate Jenkins with Prometheus to monitor the CI/CD pipeline.

Phase 5: Notification

  1. Implement Notification Services:

    • Set up email notifications in Jenkins or other notification mechanisms.

Phase 6: Kubernetes

Create Kubernetes Cluster with Nodegroups

In this phase, you'll set up a Kubernetes cluster with node groups. This will provide a scalable environment to deploy and manage your applications.

Monitor Kubernetes with Prometheus

Prometheus is a powerful monitoring and alerting toolkit, and you'll use it to monitor your Kubernetes cluster. Additionally, you'll install the node exporter using Helm to collect metrics from your cluster nodes.

Install Node Exporter using Helm

To begin monitoring your Kubernetes cluster, you'll install the Prometheus Node Exporter. This component allows you to collect system-level metrics from your cluster nodes. Here are the steps to install the Node Exporter using Helm:

  1. Add the Prometheus Community Helm repository:

     helm repo add prometheus-community

Create a Kubernetes namespace for the Node Exporter:

kubectl create namespace prometheus-node-exporter

Install the Node Exporter using Helm:

helm install prometheus-node-exporter prometheus-community/prometheus-node-exporter --namespace prometheus-node-exporter

Add a Job to Scrape Metrics on nodeip:9001/metrics in prometheus.yml:

Update your Prometheus configuration (prometheus.yml) to add a new job for scraping metrics from nodeip:9001/metrics. You can do this by adding the following configuration to your prometheus.yml file:

  - job_name: 'Netflix'
    metrics_path: '/metrics'
      - targets: ['node1Ip:9100']

Replace 'your-job-name' with a descriptive name for your job. The static_configs section specifies the targets to scrape metrics from, and in this case, it's set to nodeip:9001.

Don't forget to reload or restart Prometheus to apply these changes to your configuration.

To deploy an application with ArgoCD, you can follow these steps, which I'll outline in Markdown format:

Deploy Application with ArgoCD

  1. Install ArgoCD:

    You can install ArgoCD on your Kubernetes cluster by following the instructions provided in the EKS Workshop documentation.

  2. Set Your GitHub Repository as a Source:

    After installing ArgoCD, you need to set up your GitHub repository as a source for your application deployment. This typically involves configuring the connection to your repository and defining the source for your ArgoCD application. The specific steps will depend on your setup and requirements.

  3. Create an ArgoCD Application:

    • name: Set the name for your application.

    • destination: Define the destination where your application should be deployed.

    • project: Specify the project the application belongs to.

    • source: Set the source of your application, including the GitHub repository URL, revision, and the path to the application within the repository.

    • syncPolicy: Configure the sync policy, including automatic syncing, pruning, and self-healing.

  4. Access your Application

    • To Access the app make sure port 30007 is open in your security group and then open a new tab paste your NodeIP:30007, your app should be running.

Phase 7: Cleanup

  1. Cleanup AWS EC2 Instances:

    • Terminate AWS EC2 instances that are no longer needed.
