Configure Your AWS CodeCommit Pipelines to Use Amazon CloudWatch Events for Change Detection

You can now use event-based Amazon CloudWatch Events rules as the change detection method for your pipelines with an AWS CodeCommit repository. Amazon CloudWatch Events detects changes in real time and then starts your pipeline. You must update existing pipelines to use this feature. When you create or edit a pipeline in the console, AWS CodePipeline creates the Amazon CloudWatch Events event-based rule for you.
