The plugin makes a TeamCity build a part of an AWS CodePipeline stage by providing a custom job worker for theTeamCity the TeamCity Build and Test AWS CodePipeline actions.

It adds the AWS CodePipeline Action build trigger which polls the AWS CodePipeline for jobs. After the trigger detects a job, it adds a build to the queue. The build downloads input artifacts (depending on the AWS CodePipeline TeamCity action settings), runs the configured build steps and, in case of a successful build, publishes output artifacts to the AWS S3 for the usage in the following subsequent CidePipeline stages.

TeamCity Versions Compatibility


For more information on configuring a CodePipeline pipeline and the required resources, see CodePipeline documentation.


The currently supported credentials types are AWS account access keys (access key ID and secret access key) or temporary access keys received from AWS from the AWS security token service by assuming a role.


To identify an action when making requests to the CodePipeline, the plugin needs the ActionID property. The value must be unique and match the corresponding field in the TeamCity Action settings in the CodePipeline,  and satisfy the regular expression pattern: [a-zA-Z0-9_-]+] and have length <= 20.


CodePipeline TeamCity Build and Test actions can have from 0 to 5 input and/or output artifacts.

If any input artifacts are configured for the corresponding CodePipeline TeamCity action, they are downloaded from the S3 to the temporary directory before the build starts. The folder is specified by the codepipeline.artifact.input.folder configuration parameter which is by default

In the directory each input artifact can be found inside a <pipeline name>/<artifact name> folder, e.g. if TeamCity CodePipeline action is a part of a pipeline named TestPipeline and has an input artifact named MyApp and the previous action has uploaded some for this artifact name - then during the corresponding TeamCity build, the artifact will be available as %codepipeline.artifact.input.folder%/TestPipeline/MyApp/<random name>.zip.

Similarly, after the build finishes, the files found under the artifact output folder specified by the codepipeline.artifact.output.folder configuration parameter (which is by default) are uploaded to the S3. Each artifact must be placed in a <pipeline_name>/<artifact_name> folder, e.g. to publish some as an artifact named MyAppBuild for pipeline TestPipeline, place it to %codepipeline.artifact.output.folder%/TestPipeline/MyAppBuild/ You can achieve this, for example, by adding a Command line build step to your build which runsruns 

cp <output_file_name> %codepipeline.artifact.output.folder%/<pipeline_name>/<artifact_name>/<output_file_name>.

Trigger poll interval

By default TeamCity build triggers are polled every 20 seconds. To change this period for the AWS CodePipeline Action build trigger you may , specify codepipeline.poll.interval configuration parameter.
