Today Amazon CodeCatalyst announces support for approval gates within a workflow. Workflows provide an automated procedure for building, testing, and deploying code as part of a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) system. Approval gates pause the workflow run at the gate so that a user can validate whether it should be allowed to proceed.

Teams can use approvals to accommodate testing, security, or compliance processes. For example, a team might want to add an approval gate prior to deploying in production. This gives the ability to perform a final check before their deployment.

This feature is available in all Regions where CodeCatalyst is generally available. To get started, navigate to your workflow and add a gate. To learn more, see the Approvals section in the CodeCatalyst documentation.
