AWS CodePipeline, a continuous integration and continuous delivery service, can now execute pipelines in response to events in GitHub. Previously, if you were using GitHub as a source action, CodePipeline checked periodically to see if there was a change. Now, CodePipeline can receive a webhook from GitHub when a change is made to your GitHub repository. Webhooks can tell CodePipeline to initiate a pipeline execution.

Push events from GitHub are configured via the AWS CodePipeline console, AWS Command Line Interface, and CodePipeline API. You will need to configure your new or existing pipelines to use webhooks. Pipelines you do not configure with webhooks will continue to use periodic checking. Please see our documentation to learn more about using webhooks with CodePipeline
