First time using the AWS CLI? See the User Guide for help getting started.

Note: You are viewing the documentation for an older major version of the AWS CLI (version 1).

AWS CLI version 2, the latest major version of AWS CLI, is now stable and recommended for general use. To view this page for the AWS CLI version 2, click here. For more information see the AWS CLI version 2 installation instructions and migration guide.

[ aws . codepipeline ]



Stops the specified pipeline execution. You choose to either stop the pipeline execution by completing in-progress actions without starting subsequent actions, or by abandoning in-progress actions. While completing or abandoning in-progress actions, the pipeline execution is in a Stopping state. After all in-progress actions are completed or abandoned, the pipeline execution is in a Stopped state.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--pipeline-name <value>
--pipeline-execution-id <value>
[--abandon | --no-abandon]
[--reason <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--pipeline-name (string)

The name of the pipeline to stop.

--pipeline-execution-id (string)

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

--abandon | --no-abandon (boolean)

Use this option to stop the pipeline execution by abandoning, rather than finishing, in-progress actions.


This option can lead to failed or out-of-sequence tasks.

--reason (string)

Use this option to enter comments, such as the reason the pipeline was stopped.

--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 stop a pipeline execution

The following stop-pipeline-execution example defaults to waiting until in-progress actions finish, and then stops the pipeline. You cannot choose to stop and wait if the execution is already in a Stopping state. You can choose to stop and abandon an execution that is already in a Stopping state.

aws codepipeline stop-pipeline-execution \
    --pipeline-name MyFirstPipeline \
    --pipeline-execution-id d-EXAMPLE \
    --reason "Stopping pipeline after the build action is done"

This command returns no output.

For more information, see Stop a pipeline execution (CLI) in the AWS CodePipeline User Guide.


pipelineExecutionId -> (string)

The unique system-generated ID of the pipeline execution that was stopped.
