View pipeline (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 a pipeline
  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the CodePipeline console at

    The names and creation date of all pipelines associated with your AWS account are displayed, along with links to view execution history.

  2. To see details for a single pipeline, in Name, choose the pipeline. You can also select the pipeline, and then choose View 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.

  3. To see the configuration details for an action in a stage of a pipeline, choose the information icon next to the action.

  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 details for an action in a stage, choose Details when it 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.


    Details are available for source actions that retrieve content from GitHub repositories, but not those that retrieve content from Amazon S3 buckets or CodeCommit repositories.

  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. To get more information about errors or failures for a completed action in a stage, choose Details. Details from the last time the action ran, including the results of that action (Succeeded or Failed) are displayed.

  9. To view details about source artifacts (output artifact that originated in the first stage of a pipeline) that are used the latest pipeline execution for a stage, click in the details information area at the bottom of the stage. You can view details about identifiers, such as commit IDs, check-in comments, and the time since the artifact was created or updated.

  10. 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.
