AWS CodePipeline is used to manage CI/CD pipelines for various products we build for customers on AWS. It is being used for such products associated with various projects across our whole organization. It enabled us to build delivery pipelines for applications we are deploying on AWS native stacks.
  • Running and managing deployments for AWS native applcations
  • Seamlessly integrating the suite of build tools AWS has to offer
  • Integration with build and version control services that are not native to AWS
AWS CodePipeline is the best solution to use if your application stack is completely AWS-native. This means you are exclusively using AWS tools to manage your source control, build management, and you are deploying your applications to AWS services such as EC2, Elastic Beanstalk, Lambda, EMR, etc. It integrates very well with AWS CodeCommit, CodeBuild, and Elastic Beanstalk to manage source control, building, and deployment. However, it does not integrate too well with third-party source control and build management tools such as Github, Travis, Jenkins, CodeShip, etc.
  • AWS CodePipeline reduced CI/CD pipeline development time by 10% for AWS native application stacks.
  • AWS CodePipeline reduced response time to build failures by 3% through SNS integrations.
We selected AWS CodePipeline mainly because we wanted to keep the application stack completely native to AWS, and CodePipeline provided the best integrations with AWS services that we were using, such as S3, Elastic Beanstalk, and Lamba. Furthermore, AWS CodePipeline provided the best support for the security paradigms within AWS, such as private subnets and IAM roles. Other services we evaluated would not integrate with these services and security options without a great deal of modification and effort.
We didn't need a lot of support with AWS CodePipeline as it was pretty straightforward to configure and use, but where we ran into problems, the AWS community was able to help. AWS support agents were also helpful in resolving some of the minor issues we encountered, which we could not find a solution elsewhere.

AWS CodePipeline is being used as a continuous integration/continuous deployment tool at my organization. It is used by specific teams that require builds within a CI/CD developer workflow. The business problems it addresses is the need for automated code deployment and testing pipeline that allows for a continuous flow of code from testing to staging to deployment.
  • Continuous integration
  • Continuous delivery
  • Automated release pipeline
  • Amazon exclusivity
  • Cleaner interface
AWS CodePipeline is well suited for a specific software engineering workflow. If there is a need to deploy code within a framework, then this is a great tool to automate the code deployments outward. The scenarios where it is less appropriate is in situations of internal tooling or other code that might not change as often or are tools running locally.
  • Increased deployment speed
  • Reduced server side bugs
  • Increased transparency
Overall, I give AWS Codepipeline a 9 because it gets the job done and I can't complain much about the web interface as much of the action is taking place behind the scenes on the terminal locally or via Amazon's infrastructure anyway. It would be nicer to have a better flowing and visualizable web interface, however.
AWS Support is bar none and I have access to dedicated account managers on the business level so they can help me with any questions I have regarding their product. No complaints there at all because they have dedicated support engineers who can help me understand the product well.
AWS Codepipeline is proprietary to Amazon Web Services and works well when you're working with other AWS products. If you're using a different technology stack, then Codepipeline may not be the best tool and some open source/closed source tools available on the web may suffice.
