Bases: Action

Manual approval action.




pipeline = codepipeline.Pipeline(self, "MyPipeline")
approve_stage = pipeline.add_stage(stage_name="Approve")
manual_approval_action = codepipeline_actions.ManualApprovalAction(

role = iam.Role.from_role_arn(self, "Admin", Arn.format(ArnComponents(service="iam", resource="role", resource_name="Admin"), self))
  • additional_information (Optional[str]) – Any additional information that you want to include in the notification email message.

  • external_entity_link (Optional[str]) – URL you want to provide to the reviewer as part of the approval request. Default: - the approval request will not have an external link

  • notification_topic (Optional[ITopic]) – Optional SNS topic to send notifications to when an approval is pending.

  • notify_emails (Optional[Sequence[str]]) – A list of email addresses to subscribe to notifications when this Action is pending approval. If this has been provided, but not notificationTopic, a new Topic will be created.

  • 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:



grant the provided principal the permissions to approve or reject this manual approval action.

For more info see:


grantable (IGrantable) – the grantable to attach the permissions to.

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.
