What do you like best?

CodePipeline is able to take our software from an S3 bucket and able to trigger a code deploy deployment enabling us to use to become a autoscaling and 100% uptime solution, it is really easy to use and get set up and can be used with loads of different solutions Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

there isn't really anything I dislike about it, it's a solution that if you spend enough time with that can really save your bacon. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we are using codepipelines as one of AWS services for deploying out software and being able to do code deployments without having to take the software offline while we do this, using other features like code deploy, S3 and autoscaling we have been able to create a Blue / Green deployment that has been a game-changer for us Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I really like this AWS tool because I can integrate it with other tools such as GitHub, it offers great advantages for development professionals because it automates the task of compiling, testing and implementing our codes, which makes developing applications much more reliable and faster. and the best thing is that we only have to pay for what we use so we do not have to worry about paying dues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Codepipeline is really a very complete and easy to use tool so it is worth it in every way, so I have nothing to say against it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Working with Codepipeline will allow you to save a lot of time and money since you only pay for what you use and can implement, test or correct code in a very fast and secure way, besides that if you integrate this tool with others like CloudFormation you can model the processes for the launch of its software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By using Codepipeline we can work much more reliably and save a lot of time since it is not necessary to focus on the arduous task of configuring the servers to start designing software, in addition we can also verify errors or update the software quickly thanks to that performs automated compilation, testing and implementation of them so if we have an error we can correct it immediately.

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of the product, love integration with GitHub. Graphical interface is great for creating the pipeline itself Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No integration with BitBucket, had to use convoluted solution to sync repository with CodeCommit. No good dashboards of all my pipeline executions. Whatever dashboard is available is not enough. I am used to Jenkins like dashboard which gives tons of information Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Think differently, brace for debugging challenges. Hope for improvements on dashboards. Less costly and lower maintenance Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Ease of use and setup. And the fact that its serverless. Its integration with rest of the code* products as well as with Lambda. Its a good fit for simple use cases. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Its inability to track an individual change as it goes through the pipeline. I would like to see commit number and message flow through and particularly be available for the approval actions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it for simple CICD use cases. Gives devs easy way to experiment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

It's really a powerful tool to use, you can configure really complex workflows. You can easily integrate it to any type of workflow with different services and tools. It integrates best with the AWS own Code tools (CodeBuild, CodeCommit, etc) but has compatibility with other vendors that are standard (Github, Jenkins, etc). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is not the best, and can be improved to be more usable for non AWS experts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used to implement CD/CI with Github, CodeBuild and Lambda.

One great benefit is you only pay for the active pipelines in the month and only 1 dollars for each pipeline. So it is not an expensive service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

You have a great level of control over how you setup your release pipeline. It's running on AWS tried and tested and ever improving infrastructure and is a fantastic tool if you're stack is primarily in AWS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is nothing "revolutionary" and doesn't really add anything new to the pipeline setups I had already in place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you don't like the constant updating of services by 3rd parties (ie: things that can potentially break your build process) AWS has a good history of versioning and deprecating. This means that it will probably be in it for the long haul. However, if you're all about building into the future of the web I may recommend other 3rd party services as they're more mobile and have fantastic business intelligence features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I had several projects setup in various 3rd parties using dotfiles and had a nice pipeline for review and releases. When trying out the code pipeline for AWS it allowed me to set up exactly what I had in place before (which doesn't really incline me to switch since its a lot of work to switch and test). The primary benefit for using it is that it gives you the security of keeping everything on the AWS stack (especially if you're working with private VPCs or something of that sort).

What do you like best?

It is capable of running any platform, has scale-ability that is on par or better than the competitors. Also its integration with Github and other third party vendors allows us to use exactly what we need when we need it. You only pay for what you use, which is unique in the space. It is inside the Amazon space, allowing us to integrate our A3 instance as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Interface is a little confusing, but updates are very consistent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend using AWS CodePipeline to most with a background in administration. This is a powerful and useful product, but not for those without experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Codepipline is a bit under-rated, because most people don't have the need for such a programmable CD tool. Every facet of the build pipeline can be configured, and cans end notifier events via AWS SQS. When you're already doing much through AWS, it can reduce hassle to maintain all of your ops code in one place.

I haven't seen other CD tools have this much programmability — and even where they may, I still hesitate at have too many things in too many disparate places. Also, CodePipeline as a full command-line interface. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There really is nothing user-friendly about it, when you compare it to tools like CodeShip or Ansible. CodePipeline is a 'programmers tool' — and so it lacks the 'ease' of interacting with it, which other tools have. Consider that every functionality of CodePipeline has a command-line equivalent.

When I've built things for smaller shops, it would be too much to hand-off to less-skilled engineers. This is also the case in medium-size companies, where there are enough smart people to do big things, but not enough of them to 'retune the engine regularly.' Even in a company with ~100 engineers, the ops group was small enough that CodePipeline was a bit much to setup and maintain with a complex build that involved a large tree of dependencies. In that particularly case, GoCD provided more up-front UI. It really comes down to what kind of people you have.

As with most AWS products, support is costly or hard to come by (unless you in a city that has an AWS Loft) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look at the rest of my comments; decide whether your company size and team capabilities are right for codepipeline. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used, or attempted to use, CodePipeline in large and small companies. Large organizations with regulatory controls were where CodePipeline worked best for me, since every part of the system could be maintained in an orderly / regular manner. Also, consolidating billing with AWS simplified the POs and interaction with Finance. This ultimately lead to less time spent, organizationally, keeping proper financial controls and measure in place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As part of the tools provide by AWS for DevOps, Codepipeline enables a continuous delivery in the AWS cloud. It can be used to connect between continuous integration tools up to the deployment of your application. It handles all the step related to app lifecycle, i.e. test, build, and deploy. It first grapes your source code from a repository (on commits for instance this) by connecting to the corresponding repository, potentially launch a build/test step then deploy the artifacts to the production environment. It has a good level of security as an IAM role can be affected to the whole process which can guarantee the isolation of the whole process. Furthermore, it has an intuitive wizard that can help you quickly setup a CD environment for your application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's tied to AWS and cannot be used locally or on the infrastructure of any other cloud provider. It also still lacks a lot of integrations, for instance it supports a limited set of code source repositories, for the time being the application code can only be hosted on S3 or on github. Furthermore, the targets deploy can only be one of these options: Beanstak or CodeDeploy which both are Amazon services. Similarly, the build providers are limited to Jenkins and anther SaaS-based CI. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Unfortunately, for the time being CodePipeline can only be used for orchestrating the continuous delivery of simple applications on AWS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've participated in the investigation of a continuous delivery platform for a client. At the end we have chosen another CD solution, as the client has some specific tools used on the build process which was not possible to easily integrated with CodePipeline.
