how am I gonna assign a proper role name to allow a stack deployment via CloudFormation in AWS codepipeline?

0 votes

I am trying to create a pipeline and when I am adding a deploy stage to create a stack with CloudFormation, I am getting this error when I am trying to attach a role name:

"The role name is invalid. Check that the specified role exists and can be assumed by AWS CloudFormation."

The role exists, and I have gone into "Trust Relationship" and made CodePipeline a trusted entity. I am using the ARN as the role name.

Can anyone help me with this?

Actually it's a very simple logic. CloudFormation is the one that needs to be the trusted entity in "TRUST RELATIONSHIP" and not Code Pipeline. I hope that the above information will be helpful to you.
