Start a Pipeline Automatically Using Periodic Checks

Pipelines start automatically when repository changes are detected. You can use rules set up in Amazon CloudWatch Events or periodic checks in AWS CodePipeline to detect repository changes.

  • You should use Amazon CloudWatch Events to detect changes in an AWS CodeCommit repository or an Amazon S3 source and then start the pipeline automatically.

  • Periodic checks can be enabled or disabled using the PollForSourceChanges flag. For more information, see AWS CodePipeline Pipeline Structure Reference. This option is not recommended.
