AWS CodePipeline
API Reference (API Version 2015-07-09)


Marks a custom action as deleted. PollForJobs for the custom action will fail after the action is marked for deletion. Only used for custom actions.


To re-create a custom action after it has been deleted you must use a string in the version field that has never been used before. This string can be an incremented version number, for example. To restore a deleted custom action, use a JSON file that is identical to the deleted action, including the original string in the version field.
