class aws_cdk.aws_codepipeline_actions.Action(*, action_name, artifact_bounds, category, provider, account=None, inputs=None, outputs=None, owner=None, region=None, resource=None, role=None, run_order=None, variables_namespace=None, version=None)

Bases: Action

Low-level class for generic CodePipeline Actions.

If you’re implementing your own IAction, prefer to use the Action class from the codepipeline module.

  • action_name (str) –

  • artifact_bounds (Union[ActionArtifactBounds, Dict[str, Any]]) –

  • category (ActionCategory) – The category of the action. The category defines which action type the owner (the entity that performs the action) performs.

  • provider (str) – The service provider that the action calls.

  • account (Optional[str]) – The account the Action is supposed to live in. For Actions backed by resources, this is inferred from the Stack resource is part of. However, some Actions, like the CloudFormation ones, are not backed by any resource, and they still might want to be cross-account. In general, a concrete Action class should specify either resource, or account - but not both.

  • inputs (Optional[Sequence[Artifact]]) –

  • outputs (Optional[Sequence[Artifact]]) –

  • owner (Optional[str]) –

  • 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 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

  • resource (Optional[IResource]) – The optional resource that is backing this Action. This is used for automatically handling Actions backed by resources from a different account and/or region.

  • role (Optional[IRole]) –

  • run_order (Union[int, float, None]) – The order in which AWS CodePipeline runs this action. For more information, see the AWS CodePipeline User Guide.

  • 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

  • version (Optional[str]) –


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

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

Return type:


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

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

  • name (str) –

  • target (Optional[IRuleTarget]) –

  • 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.

  • schedule (Optional[Schedule]) – The schedule or rate (frequency) that determines when EventBridge runs the rule. You must specify this property, the eventPattern property, or both. 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.

  • cross_stack_scope (Optional[Construct]) – The scope to use if the source of the rule and its target are in different Stacks (but in the same account & region). This helps dealing with cycles that often arise in these situations. Default: - none (the main scope will be used, even for cross-stack Events)

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

  • event_pattern (Union[EventPattern, Dict[str, Any], None]) – Additional restrictions for the event to route to the specified target. The method that generates the rule probably imposes some type of event filtering. The filtering implied by what you pass here is added on top of that filtering. Default: - No additional filtering based on an event pattern.

  • rule_name (Optional[str]) – A name for the rule. Default: AWS CloudFormation generates a unique physical ID.

Return type:




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

Note that this accessor will be called before the bind callback.
