$ copilot pipeline override

What does it do?

Scaffold Infrastructure as Code (IaC) extension files for a pipeline. The generated files allow you to extend and override the Copilot-generated AWS CloudFormation template. You can edit the files to change existing resource properties, and delete or add new resources to an environment's template.
