create-pipeline

Description

Creates a pipeline.

Note

In the pipeline structure, you must include either artifactStore or artifactStores in your pipeline, but you cannot use both. If you create a cross-region action in your pipeline, you must use artifactStores .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create a pipeline

This example creates a pipeline in AWS CodePipeline using an already-created JSON file (here named MySecondPipeline.json) that contains the structure of the pipeline. For more information about the requirements for creating a pipeline, including the structure of the file, see the AWS CodePipeline User Guide.

Command:

aws codepipeline create-pipeline --cli-input-json file://MySecondPipeline.json

Output:

This command returns the structure of the pipeline.

Output

pipeline -> (structure)

Represents the structure of actions and stages to be performed in the pipeline.

name -> (string)

The name of the action to be performed.

roleArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for AWS CodePipeline to use to either perform actions with no actionRoleArn , or to use to assume roles for actions with an actionRoleArn .

artifactStore -> (structure)

Represents information about the Amazon S3 bucket where artifacts are stored for the pipeline.

Note

You must include either artifactStore or artifactStores in your pipeline, but you cannot use both. If you create a cross-region action in your pipeline, you must use artifactStores .

type -> (string)

The type of the artifact store, such as S3.

location -> (string)

The Amazon S3 bucket used for storing the artifacts for a pipeline. You can specify the name of an S3 bucket but not a folder in the bucket. A folder to contain the pipeline artifacts is created for you based on the name of the pipeline. You can use any Amazon S3 bucket in the same AWS Region as the pipeline to store your pipeline artifacts.

encryptionKey -> (structure)

The encryption key used to encrypt the data in the artifact store, such as an AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) key. If this is undefined, the default key for Amazon S3 is used.

id -> (string)

The ID used to identify the key. For an AWS KMS key, you can use the key ID, the key ARN, or the alias ARN.

Note

Aliases are recognized only in the account that created the customer master key (CMK). For cross-account actions, you can only use the key ID or key ARN to identify the key.

type -> (string)

The type of encryption key, such as an AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) key. When creating or updating a pipeline, the value must be set to 'KMS'.

artifactStores -> (map)

A mapping of artifactStore objects and their corresponding AWS Regions. There must be an artifact store for the pipeline Region and for each cross-region action in the pipeline.

Note

You must include either artifactStore or artifactStores in your pipeline, but you cannot use both. If you create a cross-region action in your pipeline, you must use artifactStores .

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

The Amazon S3 bucket where artifacts for the pipeline are stored.

Note

You must include either artifactStore or artifactStores in your pipeline, but you cannot use both. If you create a cross-region action in your pipeline, you must use artifactStores .

type -> (string)

The type of the artifact store, such as S3.

encryptionKey -> (structure)

The encryption key used to encrypt the data in the artifact store, such as an AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) key. If this is undefined, the default key for Amazon S3 is used.

id -> (string)

The ID used to identify the key. For an AWS KMS key, you can use the key ID, the key ARN, or the alias ARN.

type -> (string)

The type of encryption key, such as an AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) key. When creating or updating a pipeline, the value must be set to 'KMS'.

stages -> (list)

The stage in which to perform the action.

(structure)

Represents information about a stage and its definition.

name -> (string)

The name of the stage.

blockers -> (list)

Reserved for future use.

Reserved for future use.

name -> (string)

Reserved for future use.

type -> (string)

Reserved for future use.

actions -> (list)

The actions included in a stage.

(structure)

Represents information about an action declaration.

name -> (string)

The action declaration's name.

actionTypeId -> (structure)

Specifies the action type and the provider of the action.

category -> (string)

A category defines what kind of action can be taken in the stage, and constrains the provider type for the action. Valid categories are limited to one of the following values.

owner -> (string)

The creator of the action being called.

provider -> (string)

The provider of the service being called by the action. Valid providers are determined by the action category. For example, an action in the Deploy category type might have a provider of AWS CodeDeploy, which would be specified as CodeDeploy. For more information, see Valid Action Types and Providers in CodePipeline .

version -> (string)

A string that describes the action version.

runOrder -> (integer)

The order in which actions are run.

configuration -> (map)

The action's configuration. These are key-value pairs that specify input values for an action. For more information, see Action Structure Requirements in CodePipeline . For the list of configuration properties for the AWS CloudFormation action type in CodePipeline, see Configuration Properties Reference in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide . For template snippets with examples, see Using Parameter Override Functions with CodePipeline Pipelines in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide .

The values can be represented in either JSON or YAML format. For example, the JSON configuration item format is as follows:

JSON:

"Configuration" : { Key : Value },

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

outputArtifacts -> (list)

The name or ID of the result of the action declaration, such as a test or build artifact.

(structure)

Represents information about the output of an action.

name -> (string)

The name of the output of an artifact, such as "My App".

The input artifact of an action must exactly match the output artifact declared in a preceding action, but the input artifact does not have to be the next action in strict sequence from the action that provided the output artifact. Actions in parallel can declare different output artifacts, which are in turn consumed by different following actions.

Output artifact names must be unique within a pipeline.

The input artifact of an action must exactly match the output artifact declared in a preceding action, but the input artifact does not have to be the next action in strict sequence from the action that provided the output artifact. Actions in parallel can declare different output artifacts, which are in turn consumed by different following actions.

roleArn -> (string)

The ARN of the IAM service role that performs the declared action. This is assumed through the roleArn for the pipeline.

region -> (string)

The action declaration's AWS Region, such as us-east-1.

namespace -> (string)

The variable namespace associated with the action. All variables produced as output by this action fall under this namespace.

version -> (integer)

The version number of the pipeline. A new pipeline always has a version number of 1. This number is incremented when a pipeline is updated.

tags -> (list)

Specifies the tags applied to the pipeline.

(structure)

A tag is a key-value pair that is used to manage the resource.

key -> (string)

The tag's key.
