AWS::CodePipeline::Webhook

The AWS::CodePipeline::Webhook resource creates and registers your webhook. After the webhook is created and registered, it triggers your pipeline to start every time an external event occurs. For more information, see Configure Your GitHub Pipelines to Use Webhooks for Change Detection in the AWS CodePipeline User Guide.

We strongly recommend that you use AWS Secrets Manager to store your credentials. If you use Secrets Manager, you must have secrets in your secrets manager. For more information, see Using Dynamic References to Specify Template Values.

Important

When passing secret parameters, do not enter the value directly into the template. The value is rendered as plain text and is readable. For security purposes, do not use plain text in your CloudFormation template to store your credentials.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "Type" : "AWS::CodePipeline::Webhook", "Properties" : { "Authentication" : String, "AuthenticationConfiguration" : WebhookAuthConfiguration, "Filters" : [ WebhookFilterRule, ... ], "Name" : String, "RegisterWithThirdParty" : Boolean, "TargetAction" : String, "TargetPipeline" : String, "TargetPipelineVersion" : Integer } }

YAML

Type: AWS::CodePipeline::Webhook Properties: Authentication: String AuthenticationConfiguration: WebhookAuthConfiguration Filters: - WebhookFilterRule Name: String RegisterWithThirdParty: Boolean TargetAction: String TargetPipeline: String TargetPipelineVersion: Integer

Properties

Authentication

Supported options are GITHUB_HMAC, IP, and UNAUTHENTICATED.

  • For information about the authentication scheme implemented by GITHUB_HMAC, see Securing your webhooks on the GitHub Developer website.

  • IP rejects webhooks trigger requests unless they originate from an IP address in the IP range whitelisted in the authentication configuration.

  • UNAUTHENTICATED accepts all webhook trigger requests regardless of origin.

AuthenticationConfiguration

Properties that configure the authentication applied to incoming webhook trigger requests. The required properties depend on the authentication type. For GITHUB_HMAC, only the SecretToken property must be set. For IP, only the AllowedIPRange property must be set to a valid CIDR range. For UNAUTHENTICATED, no properties can be set.

Return Values

Ref

When you pass the logical ID of this resource to the intrinsic Ref function, Ref returns the webhook name, such as MyFirstPipeline-SourceAction1-Webhook-utb9LrOl24Kk.

For more information about using the Ref function, see Ref.

Fn::GetAtt

The Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function returns a value for a specified attribute of this type. The following are the available attributes and sample return values.

Examples

Webhook Resource Configuration

The following example creates a webhook named MyWebhook and registers the webhook for the pipeline's GitHub source repository. In this example, WebhookPipeline is the logical ID of the pipeline to which you want to add the webhook.
