[ aws . codepipeline ]



Resumes the pipeline execution by retrying the last failed actions in a stage. You can retry a stage immediately if any of the actions in the stage fail. When you retry, all actions that are still in progress continue working, and failed actions are triggered again.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--pipeline-name <value>
--stage-name <value>
--pipeline-execution-id <value>
--retry-mode <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--pipeline-name (string)

The name of the pipeline that contains the failed stage.

--stage-name (string)

The name of the failed stage to be retried.

--pipeline-execution-id (string)

The ID of the pipeline execution in the failed stage to be retried. Use the GetPipelineState action to retrieve the current pipelineExecutionId of the failed stage

--retry-mode (string)

The scope of the retry attempt. Currently, the only supported value is FAILED_ACTIONS.

Possible values:


--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.


To retry a failed action

The following retry-stage-execution example retries a stage that has a failed action.

aws codepipeline retry-stage-execution \
    --pipeline-name MyPipeline \
    --stage-name Deploy \
    --pipeline-execution-id b59babff-5f34-EXAMPLE \
    --retry-mode FAILED_ACTIONS


    "pipelineExecutionId": "b59babff-5f34-EXAMPLE"

For more information, see Retry failed actions (CLI) in the AWS CodePipeline User Guide.


pipelineExecutionId -> (string)

The ID of the current workflow execution in the failed stage.
