Stop a Deployment with AWS CodeDeploy

You can use the AWS CodeDeploy console, the AWS CLI, or the AWS CodeDeploy APIs to stop deployments associated with your AWS account.


Stopping an EC2/On-Premises deployment can leave some or all of the instances in your deployment groups in an indeterminate deployment state. For more information, see Stopped and Failed Deployments.

Stop a deployment (console)

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS CodeDeploy console at


    Sign in with the same account or IAM user information you used in Getting Started with AWS CodeDeploy.

  2. On the AWS CodeDeploy menu, choose Deployments.


    If no entries are displayed, make sure the correct region is selected. On the navigation bar, in the region selector, choose one of the regions listed in Region and Endpoints in the AWS General Reference. AWS CodeDeploy is supported in these regions only.

  3. In the Actions column for the deployment you want to stop, choose Stop.


    If a Stop button does not appear in the Actions column, the deployment has progressed to a point where it cannot be stopped.
