AWS CodePipeline Now Executes Faster and Supports More Pipeline Actions Per Stage

Posted on: Nov 19, 2018

AWS CodePipeline has reduced the transition time in-between pipeline actions, which means your pipelines will run faster, you'll get build and test results sooner, and you can iterate on features more rapidly. CodePipeline actions are tasks such as building code or deploying to a region. CodePipeline has also raised the default limit on actions per stage to 50 for all action types. Previously, there was a default limit of 20 total actions per stage including limits of 10 for both sequential and parallel actions. The new, higher limits enable you to create more complex pipelines without worrying about limits on the number of actions per stage.

Performance improvements and limit increases have been applied to all existing and new pipelines in every region where AWS CodePipeline is available. For more information, visit the AWS CodePipeline documentation.
