Monitoring: AWS CodePipeline

AWS CodePipeline is a fully-managed continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) service that automates your applications’ building, testing, and deployment. It provides a seamless workflow that allows you to release new features, updates, and fixes to your applications quickly and reliably.

Why should you monitor AWS CodePipeline?

Fast feedback cycles are crucial for successful Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipelines for several reasons:

  • Early detection of defects: By providing fast feedback, CI/CD pipelines can quickly identify and flag potential issues in code changes.
    Faster time to market: Fast feedback cycles enable developers to release changes more frequently and confidently.
  • Improved quality: By catching defects early in the development process, fast feedback cycles enable teams to ensure that the final product is of higher quality and meets the needs of the end users.

That’s why it is crucial to monitor AWS CodePipeline.
