View pipelines (console)

You can view status, transitions, and artifact updates for a pipeline.


After an hour, the detailed view of a pipeline stops refreshing automatically in your browser. To view current information, refresh the page.

To view pipelines
  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the CodePipeline console at

    The Pipelines page displays. A list of all your pipelines for that Region are shown.

    The name, type, status, version, creation date, and date when last modified of all pipelines associated with your AWS account are displayed, along with the most recently started execution time.

  2. The status for the five most recent executions is shown.

    The console view of the pipelines listing shows the name, status, type, and most recent executions for each pipeline.

    Choose View details next to a specific row to display a details dialog box listing the most recent executions.

    The Most recent executions dialog box shows the five most recent executions for a pipeline.

    To view details about the most recent executions for the pipeline, choose View history. For past executions, you can view revision details associated with source artifacts, such as execution IDs, status, start and end times, duration, and commit IDs and messages.


    For a pipeline in PARALLEL execution mode, the main pipeline view does not show the pipeline structure or in-progress executions. For a pipeline in PARALLEL execution mode, you access the pipeline structure by choosing the ID for the execution you want to view from the execution history page. Choose History in the left navigation, choose the execution ID for the parallel execution, and then view the pipeline on the Visualization tab.

  3. To see details for a single pipeline, in Name, choose the pipeline. A detailed view of the pipeline, including the state of each action in each stage and the state of the transitions, is displayed.

    The console view of the pipeline indicates the state of each action in each stage and the state of the transitions.

    The graphical view displays the following information for each stage:

    • The stage name.

    • Every action configured for the stage.

    • The state of transitions between stages (enabled or disabled), as indicated by the state of the arrow between stages. An enabled transition is indicated by an arrow with a Disable transition button next to it. A disabled transition is indicated by an arrow with a strikeout under it and an Enable transition button next to it.

    • A color bar to indicate the status of the stage:

      • Gray: No executions yet

      • Blue: In progress

      • Green: Succeeded

      • Red: Failed

    The graphical view also displays the following information about actions in each stage:

    • The name of the action.

    • The provider of the action, such as CodeDeploy.

    • When the action was last run.

    • Whether the action succeeded or failed.

    • Links to other details about the last run of the action, where available.

    • Details about the source revisions that are running through the latest pipeline execution in the stage or, for CodeDeploy deployments, the latest source revisions that were deployed to target instances.

    • A View details button that opens a dialog box with details about the action execution, logs, and action configuration.


      The Logs tab is available for CodeBuild and AWS CloudFormation actions that have run in the account of the pipeline.

  4. To view the details of the provider of the action, choose the provider. For example, in the preceding example pipeline, if you choose CodeDeploy in either the Staging or Production stages the CodeDeploy console page for the deployment group configured for that stage is displayed.

  5. To see the progress for an action is displayed next to an action in progress (indicated by an In Progress message). If the action is in progress, you see the incremental progress and the steps or actions as they occur.

  6. To approve or reject actions that have been configured for manual approval, choose Review.

  7. To retry actions in a stage that were not completed successfully, choose Retry.

  8. The status from the last time the action ran, including the results of that action (Succeeded or Failed) is displayed.
