AWS CodePipeline
User Guide (API Version 2015-07-09)

A new console design is available for this service. Although the procedures in this guide were written for the older version of the console, you will find many of the concepts and basic procedures in this guide still apply.

Access Control with IAM Policies

You can have valid credentials to authenticate your requests, but unless you have permissions you cannot create or access AWS CodePipeline resources. For example, you must have permissions to create, view, or delete pipelines; to retrieve information about applications and deployment groups in AWS CodeDeploy, and about stacks, apps and layers in AWS OpsWorks Stacks; to add or retrive artifacts from Amazon Simple Storage Service buckets; and so on.

The following sections describe how to manage permissions for AWS CodePipeline. We recommend that you read the overview first.
