Description

AWS SDK for JavaScript CodeStarConnections Client for Node.js, Browser and React Native.

AWS CodeStar Connections

This AWS CodeStar Connections API Reference provides descriptions and usage examples of the operations and data types for the AWS CodeStar Connections API. You can use the connections API to work with connections and installations.

Connections are configurations that you use to connect AWS resources to external code repositories. Each connection is a resource that can be given to services such as CodePipeline to connect to a third-party repository such as Bitbucket. For example, you can add the connection in CodePipeline so that it triggers your pipeline when a code change is made to your third-party code repository. Each connection is named and associated with a unique ARN that is used to reference the connection.

When you create a connection, the console initiates a third-party connection handshake. Installations are the apps that are used to conduct this handshake. For example, the installation for the Bitbucket provider type is the Bitbucket app. When you create a connection, you can choose an existing installation or create one.

When you want to create a connection to an installed provider type such as GitHub Enterprise Server, you create a host for your connections.

You can work with connections by calling:

  • CreateConnection, which creates a uniquely named connection that can be referenced by services such as CodePipeline.

  • DeleteConnection, which deletes the specified connection.

  • GetConnection, which returns information about the connection, including the connection status.

  • ListConnections, which lists the connections associated with your account.

You can work with hosts by calling:

  • CreateHost, which creates a host that represents the infrastructure where your provider is installed.

  • DeleteHost, which deletes the specified host.

  • GetHost, which returns information about the host, including the setup status.

  • ListHosts, which lists the hosts associated with your account.

You can work with tags in AWS CodeStar Connections by calling the following:

  • ListTagsForResource, which gets information about AWS tags for a specified Amazon Resource Name (ARN) in AWS CodeStar Connections.

  • TagResource, which adds or updates tags for a resource in AWS CodeStar Connections.

  • UntagResource, which removes tags for a resource in AWS CodeStar Connections.

For information about how to use AWS CodeStar Connections, see the Developer Tools User Guide.

Installing

To install the this package, simply type add or install @aws-sdk/client-codestar-connections using your favorite package manager:

  • npm install @aws-sdk/client-codestar-connections
  • yarn add @aws-sdk/client-codestar-connections
  • pnpm add @aws-sdk/client-codestar-connections

Getting Started

Import

The AWS SDK is modulized by clients and commands. To send a request, you only need to import the CodeStarConnectionsClient and the commands you need, for example CreateConnectionCommand:

// ES5 example
const { CodeStarConnectionsClient, CreateConnectionCommand } = require("@aws-sdk/client-codestar-connections");
// ES6+ example
import { CodeStarConnectionsClient, CreateConnectionCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-codestar-connections";

Usage

To send a request, you:

  • Initiate client with configuration (e.g. credentials, region).
  • Initiate command with input parameters.
  • Call send operation on client with command object as input.
  • If you are using a custom http handler, you may call destroy() to close open connections.
// a client can be shared by different commands.
const client = new CodeStarConnectionsClient({ region: "REGION" });

const params = {
  /** input parameters */
};
const command = new CreateConnectionCommand(params);

Async/await

We recommend using await operator to wait for the promise returned by send operation as follows:

// async/await.
try {
  const data = await client.send(command);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  // error handling.
} finally {
  // finally.
}

Async-await is clean, concise, intuitive, easy to debug and has better error handling as compared to using Promise chains or callbacks.

Promises

You can also use Promise chaining to execute send operation.

client.send(command).then(
  (data) => {
    // process data.
  },
  (error) => {
    // error handling.
  }
);

Promises can also be called using .catch() and .finally() as follows:

client
  .send(command)
  .then((data) => {
    // process data.
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    // error handling.
  })
  .finally(() => {
    // finally.
  });

Callbacks

We do not recommend using callbacks because of callback hell, but they are supported by the send operation.

// callbacks.
client.send(command, (err, data) => {
  // process err and data.
});

v2 compatible style

The client can also send requests using v2 compatible style. However, it results in a bigger bundle size and may be dropped in next major version. More details in the blog post on modular packages in AWS SDK for JavaScript

import * as AWS from "@aws-sdk/client-codestar-connections";
const client = new AWS.CodeStarConnections({ region: "REGION" });

// async/await.
try {
  const data = await client.createConnection(params);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  // error handling.
}

// Promises.
client
  .createConnection(params)
  .then((data) => {
    // process data.
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    // error handling.
  });

// callbacks.
client.createConnection(params, (err, data) => {
  // process err and data.
});

Troubleshooting

When the service returns an exception, the error will include the exception information, as well as response metadata (e.g. request id).

try {
  const data = await client.send(command);
  // process data.
} catch (error) {
  const { requestId, cfId, extendedRequestId } = error.$$metadata;
  console.log({ requestId, cfId, extendedRequestId });
  /**
   * The keys within exceptions are also parsed.
   * You can access them by specifying exception names:
   * if (error.name === 'SomeServiceException') {
   *     const value = error.specialKeyInException;
   * }
   */
}
