Edit a trigger in a CodeDeploy deployment group

If your notification requirements change, you can modify your trigger rather than create a new one.

Modify a CodeDeploy trigger (CLI)

To use the Amazon CLI to change trigger details for CodeDeploy events when you update a deployment group, create a JSON file to define changes to the deployment group's properties, and then run the update-deployment-group command with the --cli-input-json option.

The simplest way to create the JSON file is to run the get-deployment-group command to get the current deployment group details in JSON format, and then edit the required values in a plain-text editor.

  1. Run the following command, substituting the names of your application and deployment group for application and deployment-group:

    aws deploy get-deployment-group --application-name application --deployment-group-name deployment-group
  2. Copy the results of the command into a plain-text editor and then delete the following:

    • At the beginning of the output, delete { "deploymentGroupInfo":.

    • At the end of the output, delete }.

    • Delete the row containing deploymentGroupId.

    • Delete the row containing deploymentGroupName.

    The contents of your text file should now look similar to the following:

    { "applicationName": "TestApp-us-east-2", "deploymentConfigName": "CodeDeployDefault.OneAtATime", "autoScalingGroups": [], "ec2TagFilters": [ { "Type": "KEY_AND_VALUE", "Value": "East-1-Instances", "Key": "Name" } ], "triggerConfigurations": [ { "triggerEvents": [ "DeploymentStart", "DeploymentSuccess", "DeploymentFailure", "DeploymentStop" ], "triggerTargetArn": "arn:aws-cn:sns:us-east-2:111222333444:Trigger-group-us-east-2", "triggerName": "Trigger-group-us-east-2" } ], "serviceRoleArn": "arn:aws-cn:iam::444455556666:role/AnyCompany-service-role", "onPremisesInstanceTagFilters": [] }
  3. Change any parameters, as necessary. For information about trigger configuration parameters, see TriggerConfig.

  4. Save your updates as a JSON file, and then run the update-deployment-group command using the --cli-input-json option. Be sure to include the --current-deployment-group-name option and substitute the name of your JSON file for filename:


    Be sure to include file:// before the file name. It is required in this command.

    aws deploy update-deployment-group --current-deployment-group-name deployment-group-name --cli-input-json file://filename.json

At the end of the creation process, you receive a test notification message that indicates both permissions and trigger details are set up correctly.
