Set Up Connections from Development Tools Using Git Credentials

After you have configured Git credentials for AWS CodeCommit in the IAM console, you can use those credentials with any development tool that supports Git credentials. For example, you can configure access to your AWS CodeCommit repository in Visual Studio, Eclipse, Xcode, IntelliJ, or any integrated development environment (IDE) that integrates Git credentials. After configuring access, you can edit your code, commit your changes, and push directly from the IDE or other development tool.

When prompted by your IDE or development tool for the user name and password used to connect to the AWS CodeCommit repository, provide the Git credentials for User name and Password you created in IAM. For example, if you are prompted for a user name and password in Eclipse, and you are connecting to a repository in US East (N. Virginia), you would provide your Git credentials as follows:
