  • change_set_name (str) – Name of the change set to execute.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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 IAction.bind method in the 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


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.
