AWS CodeStar

Quickly develop, build, and deploy applications on AWS

Discontinuation of AWS CodeStar support

On July 31, 2024, Amazon Web Services (AWS) will discontinue support for creating and viewing AWS CodeStar projects. After July 31, 2024, you will no longer be able to access the AWS CodeStar console or create new projects. However, the AWS resources created by AWS CodeStar, including your source repositories, pipelines, and builds, will be unaffected by this change and will continue to function. AWS CodeStar Connections will not be impacted by this discontinuation.

If you wish to track work, develop code, and build, test, and deploy your applications, Amazon CodeCatalyst provides a streamlined getting started process and additional functionality to manage your software projects. Learn more about functionality and pricing of Amazon CodeCatalyst.
