As a service administrator, you can make Automation Pipelines pipelines available in the Automation Service Broker catalog by adding a Automation Pipelines content source and sharing the pipelines. The pipelines are the continuous integration and delivery model of your software release process.

Workflow diagram for importing and deploying Code Stream pipelines.

After you import the pipelines, you share them with project members so that they can deploy the pipelines from the catalog. After the pipeline deployment execution completes, the users can access review the inputs and outputs, and use the output, pipeline, and execution links.


  • Verify that the pipelines that you are importing are enabled and released in Automation Pipelines before you import it. See How do I run a pipeline and see results in Using Automation Pipelines.


  1. Import pipelines from Automation Pipelines.
    1. Select Content and Policies > Content Sources.
    2. Click New, and then click Code Stream Pipelines.
    3. Enter the Name for this content source.
    4. Select the Source project and then click Validate.
      The validation process tests the connection and provides the number of released pipelines that are associated with the project in Automation Pipelines.
    5. Click Create and Import.
    The Content Sources page lists your new source and the number of discovered and imported items.
  2. Share the imported items with the source project so that they appear in the catalog.
    1. Select Content and Policies > Policies > Definitions, and create a new content sharing policy.
    2. Enter a name for the content sharing policy.
    3. In the Scope list, select the source project that includes the users who have permission to request the pipelines.
    4. In the Content sharing section, click Add Items and then select one or more pipelines to share with the project.
      You can select all the items imported from a content source or you can select individual items. To select only particular pipelines, select All Content in the Content Sources drop-down menu.
    5. In the Users section, select the users and user groups that you want to have access to the content.
      You can share the content with all users and groups in the project, or you can select individual users and groups.
    6. Click Create.
    The pipelines are added to the catalog where the project members can request them.
  3. Verify that the pipeline is available in the catalog to the members of the selected projects.
    1. Click the Consume tab.
    2. In the Projects drop-down menu, select the project with which you shared the pipeline.

      You can select multiple projects.

    3. On the Catalog page, locate the imported pipeline.
    4. Click Request and provide any required information.
    5. Click Submit.
      The provisioning process begins and the Deployments page opens with your current request at the top.
  4. Monitor the provisioning process to ensure successful deployment.
    1. Select Deployments > Deployments and locate your deployed catalog item.
    2. Monitor the card status until it is successful.
    You can open the deployment, review the inputs and outputs, use the links to access the output URL, and use the links to the pipeline and execution in Automation Pipelines.


The released pipelines are imported into Automation Service Broker, shared in the catalog, and deployable.
