--provider-type-filter (string)

Filters the list of connections to those associated with a specified provider, such as Bitbucket.

Possible values:

  • Bitbucket
  • GitHub
  • GitHubEnterpriseServer
  • GitLab
  • GitLabSelfManaged

--host-arn-filter (string)

Filters the list of connections to those associated with a specified host.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return in a single call. To retrieve the remaining results, make another call with the returned nextToken value.

--next-token (string)

The token that was returned from the previous ListConnections call, which can be used to return the next set of connections in the list.

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To list connections

The following list-connections example retrieves a list of all connections in your account for the Bitbucket provider type.:

aws codestar-connections list-connections \
--provider-type Bitbucket \
--max-results 5 \
--next-token: next-token


    "Connections": [
            "ConnectionName": "my-connection",
            "ProviderType": "Bitbucket",
            "Status": "PENDING",
            "ARN": "arn:aws:codestar-connections:us-east-1:123456789012:connection/aEXAMPLE-8aad-4d5d-8878-dfcab0bc441f",
            "OwnerAccountId": "123456789012"
            "ConnectionName": "my-other-connection",
            "ProviderType": "Bitbucket",
            "Status": "AVAILABLE",
            "ARN": "arn:aws:codestar-connections:us-east-1:123456789012:connection/aEXAMPLE-8aad-4d5d-8878-dfcab0bc441f",
            "OwnerAccountId": "123456789012"
    "NextToken": "next-token"

For more information, see List connections (CLI) in the Developer Tools console User Guide.


Connections -> (list)

A list of connections and the details for each connection, such as status, owner, and provider type.


A resource that is used to connect third-party source providers with services like CodePipeline.

Note: A connection created through CloudFormation, the CLI, or the SDK is in PENDING status by default. You can make its status AVAILABLE by updating the connection in the console.

ConnectionName -> (string)

The name of the connection. Connection names must be unique in an Amazon Web Services account.

ConnectionArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the connection. The ARN is used as the connection reference when the connection is shared between Amazon Web Services.


The ARN is never reused if the connection is deleted.

ProviderType -> (string)

The name of the external provider where your third-party code repository is configured.

OwnerAccountId -> (string)

The identifier of the external provider where your third-party code repository is configured. For Bitbucket, this is the account ID of the owner of the Bitbucket repository.

ConnectionStatus -> (string)

The current status of the connection.

HostArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the host associated with the connection.

NextToken -> (string)

A token that can be used in the next ListConnections call. To view all items in the list, continue to call this operation with each subsequent token until no more nextToken values are returned.
