Amazon CloudWatch Events Amazon CloudWatch Events is a web service that detects changes in your AWS services based on rules that you define and invokes an action in one or more specified AWS services when a change occurs.
AWS Cloud9

AWS Cloud9 is an online IDE, which you access through your web browser. The IDE offers a rich code editing experience with support for several programming languages and runtime debuggers, as well as a built-in terminal. In the background, an Amazon EC2 instance hosts an AWS Cloud9 development environment. For more information, see the AWS Cloud9 User Guide.

AWS CloudTrail

CloudTrail captures AWS API calls and related events made by or on behalf of an AWS account and delivers log files to an Amazon S3 bucket that you specify. You can configure CloudTrail to capture API calls from the CodePipeline console, CodePipeline commands from the AWS CLI, and from the CodePipeline API.

AWS CodeStar Notifications You can set up notifications to make users aware of important changes, such as when a pipeline starts execution. For more information, see Create a notification rule.
AWS Key Management Service

AWS KMS is a managed service that makes it easy for you to create and control the encryption keys used to encrypt your data. By default, CodePipeline uses AWS KMS to encrypt artifacts for pipelines stored in Amazon S3 buckets.

For an AWS KMS key, you can use the key ID, the key ARN, or the alias ARN.


Aliases are recognized only in the account that created the KMS key. For cross-account actions, you can only use the key ID or key ARN to identify the key. Cross-account actions involve using the role from the other account (AccountB), so specifying the key ID will use the key from the other account (AccountB).
