[ aws . codepipeline ]



Marks a custom action as deleted. PollForJobs for the custom action fails after the action is marked for deletion. Used for custom actions only.


To re-create a custom action after it has been deleted you must use a string in the version field that has never been used before. This string can be an incremented version number, for example. To restore a deleted custom action, use a JSON file that is identical to the deleted action, including the original string in the version field.

--provider <value>

[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--category (string)

The category of the custom action that you want to delete, such as source or deploy.

Possible values:

  • Source

  • Build

  • Deploy

  • Test

  • Invoke

  • Approval

--provider (string)

The provider of the service used in the custom action, such as AWS CodeDeploy.

--action-version (string)

The version of the custom action to delete.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To delete a custom action

This example deletes a custom action in AWS CodePipeline by using an already-created JSON file (here named DeleteMyCustomAction.json) that contains the action type, provider name, and version number of the action to be deleted. Use the list-action-types command to view the correct values for category, version, and provider.


aws codepipeline delete-custom-action-type --cli-input-json file://DeleteMyCustomAction.json

JSON file sample contents:

  "category": "Build",
  "version": "1",
  "provider": "MyJenkinsProviderName"
