This section defines key Code Pipes terms.

OrganizationOrganizations are used to control tenancy. Most APIs come through a single organization, so this is the level where most RBAC occurs. You can create an organization and then invite other users to join your organization with a specified RBAC role.
MembersMembers refer to the users who are part of an organization and have been invited to join with a specific RBAC role.
CredentialsCredentials are the necessary authentication details required for accessing external systems such as GitHub, GCP, and AWS. They can be applied at the environment or project level.
ProjectProjects are defined within an organization and can contain related environments, applications, and deployments. They also include a list of environment, IaC an app variables, credentials required for accessing external systems, and the default policy set for IaC validation.
EnvironmentAn environment is a part of a project and holds the infrastructure that a project's applications will use. It specifies the location where applications are deployed. Environments can be created for different needs, such as development, testing, and production. They include a list of Git repos, IaC code, environment/terraform variables, credentials, and a policy set for validation.
Environment classificationEnvironment classification refers to categorizing environments based on their purpose or target audience. Common classifications include development, test, and production environments.
ApplicationApplications are entities within a project that are deployed in environments.
App artifactsApp artifacts are the compiled or packaged components of an application, such as containers repository and code repository.
Container repositoryA container repository is a storage location for container images that are used for deploying applications in containers.
Code repositoryA code repository is a version control system or storage location for source code. It holds the application's codebase and infrastructure code (IaC).
App dependenciesApp dependencies refer to the terraform modules from terraform registry or any other git source, that an application relies on to function properly.
Integration pipelineAn integration pipeline refers to a series of automated steps and processes that integrate various components of an application (eg. build,test,secure).
Git TriggerA Git Trigger is a mechanism that initiates a pipeline or workflow when changes are made to a specific branch, commit, or tag in a Git repository.
App deploymentsApp deployments involve the process of deploying an application to a specific environment, making it available for use.
Policy setA policy set is a collection of predefined rules or policies that are applied to validate the Terraform code used for infrastructure provisioning and management.
Environment setAn environment set refers to a group or collection of related environments that has some promotional relationship defined.
Deployment pipelineA deployment pipeline is a sequence of actions and tasks that automate the deployment of an application or system. It typically includes deploying the application to a target environment.
Validation pipelineA validation pipeline is a series of automated steps and checks that validate the correctness and integrity of configurations, or infrastructure. It ensures that the deployed application meets the defined compliance and quality standards.
Destroy pipelineA destroy pipeline is a set of automated steps and processes that tear down or destroy the resources and infrastructure associated with an application or system. It is used when removing an application or decommissioning an environment.
Code promotionCode promotion refers to the process of promoting or moving code and application changes from one environment to another, typically following a predefined workflow or promotion sequence.
HierarchyCode Pipes entities follow a parent/child hierarchy, with organizations at the top, followed by projects, environments, and applications. Lower-level settings in the hierarchy override higher-level settings.
