AWS CodePipeline Tutorial: Automating Continuous Integration and Deployment

AWS CodePipeline is a continuous integration and continuous delivery service provided by Amazon Web Services. It allows you to automate the process of building, testing, and deploying your code changes. With CodePipeline, you can create a workflow that comprises various stages in your software release process and enable the automation of each stage.

Setting up CodePipeline

To get started with AWS CodePipeline, you need to define the source provider where your code resides (such as AWS CodeCommit, GitHub, or Amazon S3), the build provider for compiling your code (like AWS CodeBuild), and the deployment provider where you want to deploy your application (such as AWS Elastic Beanstalk or AWS Lambda).

Creating a Pipeline

Once you have set up your source, build, and deployment providers, you can create a pipeline in the AWS Management Console. Define the stages of your pipeline, such as source, build, test, and deploy. You can also add manual approval actions between stages to control the flow of your pipeline.

Deploying Changes

As you push code changes to your source repository, AWS CodePipeline will automatically trigger a new pipeline execution. The source stage will pull the latest changes, followed by the build stage for compiling the code. If the build is successful, the pipeline will proceed to the test and deploy stages, where your application will be tested and deployed to the specified environment.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

AWS CodePipeline provides detailed logs and metrics for each stage of your pipeline, allowing you to monitor the progress and troubleshoot any issues that may arise during the deployment process. You can also set up notifications to alert you of pipeline failures or completion.


Automating your software release process with AWS CodePipeline can help streamline your development workflow, reduce the risk of errors, and accelerate the time-to-market for your applications. By following this tutorial, you can leverage the power of continuous integration and deployment on AWS.
