Working with Actions in CodePipeline

In AWS CodePipeline, an action is part of the sequence in a stage of a pipeline. It is a task performed on the artifact in that stage. Pipeline actions occur in a specified order, in sequence or in parallel, as determined in the configuration of the stage.

CodePipeline provides support for six types of actions:

  • Source

  • Build

  • Test

  • Deploy

  • Approval

  • Invoke

For information about the AWS services and partner products and services you can integrate into your pipeline based on action type, see Integrations with CodePipeline Action Types.
