[ aws . codecommit ]



Tests the functionality of repository triggers by sending information to the trigger target. If real data is available in the repository, the test sends data from the last commit. If no data is available, sample data is generated.

--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository in which to test the triggers.

--triggers (list)

The list of triggers to test.


Information about a trigger for a repository.

name -> (string)

The name of the trigger.

destinationArn -> (string)

The ARN of the resource that is the target for a trigger (for example, the ARN of a topic in Amazon SNS).

customData -> (string)

Any custom data associated with the trigger to be included in the information sent to the target of the trigger.

branches -> (list)

The branches to be included in the trigger configuration. If you specify an empty array, the trigger applies to all branches.


Although no content is required in the array, you must include the array itself.


events -> (list)

The repository events that cause the trigger to run actions in another service, such as sending a notification through Amazon SNS.


The valid value “all” cannot be used with any other values.


Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,destinationArn=string,customData=string,branches=string,string,events=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "name": "string",
    "destinationArn": "string",
    "customData": "string",
    "branches": ["string", ...],
    "events": ["all"|"updateReference"|"createReference"|"deleteReference", ...]

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To test triggers in a repository

This example demonstrates how to test a trigger named ‘MyFirstTrigger’ in an AWS CodeCommit repository named MyDemoRepo. In this example, events in the repository trigger notifications from an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic.


aws codecommit test-repository-triggers --repository-name MyDemoRepo --triggers name=MyFirstTrigger,destinationArn=arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:111111111111:MyCodeCommitTopic,branches=mainline,preprod,events=all


  "successfulExecutions": [
  "failedExecutions": []


successfulExecutions -> (list)

The list of triggers that were successfully tested. This list provides the names of the triggers that were successfully tested, separated by commas.


failedExecutions -> (list)

The list of triggers that were not tested. This list provides the names of the triggers that could not be tested, separated by commas.


A trigger failed to run.

trigger -> (string)

The name of the trigger that did not run.

failureMessage -> (string)

Message information about the trigger that did not run.
