AWS CodeCommit is a version control service that enables you to privately store and manage Git repositories in the AWS cloud.

For further information on CodeCommit, see the AWS CodeCommit documentation.

To add a CodeCommit Repository to your stack:

repo = codecommit.Repository(self, "Repository",
    description="Some description."

Use the repositoryCloneUrlHttp, repositoryCloneUrlSsh or repositoryCloneUrlGrc property to clone your repository.

To add an Amazon SNS trigger to your repository:

# repo: codecommit.Repository

# trigger is established for all repository actions on all branches by default.

Add initial commit

It is possible to initialize the Repository via the Code class. It provides methods for loading code from a directory, .zip file and from a pre-created CDK Asset.


repo = codecommit.Repository(self, "Repository",
    code=codecommit.Code.from_directory(path.join(__dirname, "directory/"), "develop")


CodeCommit repositories emit Amazon CloudWatch events for certain activities. Use the repo.onXxx methods to define rules that trigger on these events and invoke targets as a result:

import aws_cdk.aws_sns as sns
import aws_cdk.aws_events_targets as targets

# repo: codecommit.Repository
# project: codebuild.PipelineProject
# my_topic: sns.Topic

# starts a CodeBuild project when a commit is pushed to the "master" branch of the repo

# publishes a message to an Amazon SNS topic when a comment is made on a pull request
rule = repo.on_comment_on_pull_request("CommentOnPullRequest",

CodeStar Notifications

To define CodeStar Notification rules for Repositories, use one of the notifyOnXxx() methods. They are very similar to onXxx() methods for CloudWatch events:

import aws_cdk.aws_chatbot as chatbot

# repository: codecommit.Repository

target = chatbot.SlackChannelConfiguration(self, "MySlackChannel",
rule = repository.notify_on_pull_request_created("NotifyOnPullRequestCreated", target)
