Construct pipelines from code

If you manage your pipelines with code, rather than in the web UI, you can maintain a record of pipeline changes over time. When you choose to manage pipelines with code, a .cd4pe.yaml file, containing the pipelines' definitions for a control repo or module, is stored in your source control system alongside the Puppet code for that control repo or module.

  • Configure your pipelines for management with code
    To manage pipelines-as-code, you need a .cd4pe.yaml file containing the pipeline definitions. Use these steps to convert existing pipelines to code, update pipelines-as-code, or create new pipelines for new repos.
  • .cd4pe.yaml file structure
    When managing your pipelines with code, pipeline definitions are expressed in a structured format and stored in a .cd4pe.yaml file that is stored in your control repo or module repo.
