Bases: Action

CodePipeline action to delete a stack.

Deletes a stack. If you specify a stack that doesn’t exist, the action completes successfully without deleting a stack.

    # the properties below are optional
        "parameter_overrides_key": parameter_overrides
  • admin_permissions (bool) – Whether to grant full permissions to CloudFormation while deploying this template. Setting this to true affects the defaults for role and capabilities, if you don’t specify any alternatives. The default role that will be created for you will have full (i.e., *) permissions on all resources, and the deployment will have named IAM capabilities (i.e., able to create all IAM resources). This is a shorthand that you can use if you fully trust the templates that are deployed in this pipeline. If you want more fine-grained permissions, use addToRolePolicy and capabilities to control what the CloudFormation deployment is allowed to do.

  • stack_name (str) – The name of the stack to apply this action to.

  • account (Optional[str]) – The AWS account this Action is supposed to operate in. Note: if you specify the role property, this is ignored - the action will operate in the same region the passed role does. Default: - action resides in the same account as the pipeline

  • capabilities (Optional[Sequence[CloudFormationCapabilities]]) – (deprecated) Acknowledge certain changes made as part of deployment. For stacks that contain certain resources, explicit acknowledgement that AWS CloudFormation might create or update those resources. For example, you must specify AnonymousIAM or NamedIAM if your stack template contains AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources. For more information see the link below. Default: None, unless adminPermissions is true

  • cfn_capabilities (Optional[Sequence[CfnCapabilities]]) – Acknowledge certain changes made as part of deployment. For stacks that contain certain resources, explicit acknowledgement is required that AWS CloudFormation might create or update those resources. For example, you must specify ANONYMOUS_IAM or NAMED_IAM if your stack template contains AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources. For more information, see the link below. Default: None, unless adminPermissions is true

  • deployment_role (Optional[IRole]) – IAM role to assume when deploying changes. If not specified, a fresh role is created. The role is created with zero permissions unless adminPermissions is true, in which case the role will have full permissions. Default: A fresh role with full or no permissions (depending on the value of adminPermissions).

  • extra_inputs (Optional[Sequence[Artifact]]) – The list of additional input Artifacts for this Action. This is especially useful when used in conjunction with the parameterOverrides property. For example, if you have: parameterOverrides: { ‘Param1’: action1.outputArtifact.bucketName, ‘Param2’: action2.outputArtifact.objectKey, } , if the output Artifacts of action1 and action2 were not used to set either the templateConfiguration or the templatePath properties, you need to make sure to include them in the extraInputs - otherwise, you’ll get an “unrecognized Artifact” error during your Pipeline’s execution.

  • output (Optional[Artifact]) – The name of the output artifact to generate. Only applied if outputFileName is set as well. Default: Automatically generated artifact name.

  • output_file_name (Optional[str]) – A name for the filename in the output artifact to store the AWS CloudFormation call’s result. The file will contain the result of the call to AWS CloudFormation (for example the call to UpdateStack or CreateChangeSet). AWS CodePipeline adds the file to the output artifact after performing the specified action. Default: No output artifact generated

  • parameter_overrides (Optional[Mapping[str, Any]]) – Additional template parameters. Template parameters specified here take precedence over template parameters found in the artifact specified by the templateConfiguration property. We recommend that you use the template configuration file to specify most of your parameter values. Use parameter overrides to specify only dynamic parameter values (values that are unknown until you run the pipeline). All parameter names must be present in the stack template. Note: the entire object cannot be more than 1kB. Default: No overrides

  • region (Optional[str]) – The AWS region the given Action resides in. Note that a cross-region Pipeline requires replication buckets to function correctly. You can provide their names with the {@link PipelineProps#crossRegionReplicationBuckets} property. If you don’t, the CodePipeline Construct will create new Stacks in your CDK app containing those buckets, that you will need to cdk deploy before deploying the main, Pipeline-containing Stack. Default: the Action resides in the same region as the Pipeline

  • template_configuration (Optional[ArtifactPath]) – Input artifact to use for template parameters values and stack policy. The template configuration file should contain a JSON object that should look like this: { "Parameters": {...}, "Tags": {...}, "StackPolicy": {... }}. For more information, see AWS CloudFormation Artifacts. Note that if you include sensitive information, such as passwords, restrict access to this file. Default: No template configuration based on input artifacts

  • role (Optional[IRole]) – The Role in which context’s this Action will be executing in. The Pipeline’s Role will assume this Role (the required permissions for that will be granted automatically) right before executing this Action. This Action will be passed into your {@link IAction.bind} method in the {@link ActionBindOptions.role} property. Default: a new Role will be generated

  • action_name (str) – The physical, human-readable name of the Action. Note that Action names must be unique within a single Stage.

  • run_order (Union[int, float, None]) – The runOrder property for this Action. RunOrder determines the relative order in which multiple Actions in the same Stage execute. Default: 1

  • variables_namespace (Optional[str]) – The name of the namespace to use for variables emitted by this action. Default: - a name will be generated, based on the stage and action names, if any of the action’s variables were referenced - otherwise, no namespace will be set



Add statement to the service role assumed by CloudFormation while executing this action.


statement (PolicyStatement) –

Return type:


bind(scope, stage, *, bucket, role)

The callback invoked when this Action is added to a Pipeline.

Return type:


on_state_change(name, target=None, *, description=None, enabled=None, event_bus=None, event_pattern=None, rule_name=None, schedule=None, targets=None)

Creates an Event that will be triggered whenever the state of this Action changes.

  • name (str) –

  • target (Optional[IRuleTarget]) –

  • description (Optional[str]) – A description of the rule’s purpose. Default: - No description.

  • enabled (Optional[bool]) – Indicates whether the rule is enabled. Default: true

  • event_bus (Optional[IEventBus]) – The event bus to associate with this rule. Default: - The default event bus.

  • event_pattern (Union[EventPattern, Dict[str, Any], None]) – Describes which events EventBridge routes to the specified target. These routed events are matched events. For more information, see Events and Event Patterns in the Amazon EventBridge User Guide. Default: - None.

  • rule_name (Optional[str]) – A name for the rule. Default: - AWS CloudFormation generates a unique physical ID and uses that ID for the rule name. For more information, see Name Type.

  • schedule (Optional[Schedule]) – The schedule or rate (frequency) that determines when EventBridge runs the rule. For more information, see Schedule Expression Syntax for Rules in the Amazon EventBridge User Guide. Default: - None.

  • targets (Optional[Sequence[IRuleTarget]]) – Targets to invoke when this rule matches an event. Input will be the full matched event. If you wish to specify custom target input, use addTarget(target[, inputOptions]). Default: - No targets.

Return type:




The simple properties of the Action, like its Owner, name, etc.

Note that this accessor will be called before the {@link bind} callback.
