[ aws . codepipeline ]



Enables artifacts in a pipeline to transition to a stage in a pipeline.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--pipeline-name <value>
--stage-name <value>
--transition-type <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--pipeline-name (string)

The name of the pipeline in which you want to enable the flow of artifacts from one stage to another.

--stage-name (string)

The name of the stage where you want to enable the transition of artifacts, either into the stage (inbound) or from that stage to the next stage (outbound).

--transition-type (string)

Specifies whether artifacts will be allowed to enter the stage and be processed by the actions in that stage (inbound) or whether already-processed artifacts will be allowed to transition to the next stage (outbound).

Possible values:

  • Inbound
  • Outbound

--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.
