create-webhook

Description

For an existing AWS CodeBuild build project that has its source code stored in a GitHub or Bitbucket repository, enables AWS CodeBuild to start rebuilding the source code every time a code change is pushed to the repository.

Warning

If you enable webhooks for an AWS CodeBuild project, and the project is used as a build step in AWS CodePipeline, then two identical builds are created for each commit. One build is triggered through webhooks, and one through AWS CodePipeline. Because billing is on a per-build basis, you are billed for both builds. Therefore, if you are using AWS CodePipeline, we recommend that you disable webhooks in AWS CodeBuild. In the AWS CodeBuild console, clear the Webhook box. For more information, see step 5 in Change a Build Project's Settings .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-webhook
--project-name <value>
[--branch-filter <value>]
[--filter-groups <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--project-name (string)

The name of the AWS CodeBuild project.

--branch-filter (string)

A regular expression used to determine which repository branches are built when a webhook is triggered. If the name of a branch matches the regular expression, then it is built. If branchFilter is empty, then all branches are built.

Note

It is recommended that you use filterGroups instead of branchFilter .

--filter-groups (list)

An array of arrays of WebhookFilter objects used to determine which webhooks are triggered. At least one WebhookFilter in the array must specify EVENT as its type .

For a build to be triggered, at least one filter group in the filterGroups array must pass. For a filter group to pass, each of its filters must pass.

Shorthand Syntax:

[{type=string,pattern=string,excludeMatchedPattern=boolean},{type=string,pattern=string,excludeMatchedPattern=boolean}] ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  [
    {
      "type": "EVENT"|"BASE_REF"|"HEAD_REF"|"ACTOR_ACCOUNT_ID"|"FILE_PATH",
      "pattern": "string",
      "excludeMatchedPattern": true|false
    }
    ...
  ]
  ...
]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI 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.

--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. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create webhook filters for an AWS CodeBuild project

The following create-webhook example creates a webhook for a CodeBuild project named my-project that has two filter groups. The first filter group specifies pull requests that are created, updated, or reopened on branches with Git reference names that match the regular expression ^refs/heads/master$ and head references that match ^refs/heads/myBranch$. The second filter group specifies push requests on branches with Git reference names that do not match the regular expression ^refs/heads/myBranch$.

aws codebuild create-webhook \
    --project-name my-project \
    --filter-groups "[[{\"type\":\"EVENT\",\"pattern\":\"PULL_REQUEST_CREATED, PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED, PULL_REQUEST_REOPENED\"},{\"type\":\"HEAD_REF\",\"pattern\":\"^refs/heads/myBranch$\",\"excludeMatchedPattern\":true},{\"type\":\"BASE_REF\",\"pattern\":\"^refs/heads/master$\",\"excludeMatchedPattern\":true}],[{\"type\":\"EVENT\",\"pattern\":\"PUSH\"},{\"type\":\"HEAD_REF\",\"pattern\":\"^refs/heads/myBranch$\",\"excludeMatchedPattern\":true}]]"

Output

webhook -> (structure)

Information about a webhook that connects repository events to a build project in AWS CodeBuild.

url -> (string)

The URL to the webhook.

payloadUrl -> (string)

The AWS CodeBuild endpoint where webhook events are sent.

secret -> (string)

The secret token of the associated repository.

Note

A Bitbucket webhook does not support secret .

branchFilter -> (string)

A regular expression used to determine which repository branches are built when a webhook is triggered. If the name of a branch matches the regular expression, then it is built. If branchFilter is empty, then all branches are built.

Note

It is recommended that you use filterGroups instead of branchFilter .

filterGroups -> (list)

An array of arrays of WebhookFilter objects used to determine which webhooks are triggered. At least one WebhookFilter in the array must specify EVENT as its type .

For a build to be triggered, at least one filter group in the filterGroups array must pass. For a filter group to pass, each of its filters must pass.

(list)

(structure)

A filter used to determine which webhooks trigger a build.

type -> (string)

The type of webhook filter. There are five webhook filter types: EVENT , ACTOR_ACCOUNT_ID , HEAD_REF , BASE_REF , and FILE_PATH .

EVENT

A webhook event triggers a build when the provided pattern matches one of four event types: PUSH , PULL_REQUEST_CREATED , PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED , and PULL_REQUEST_REOPENED . The EVENT patterns are specified as a comma-separated string. For example, PUSH, PULL_REQUEST_CREATED, PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED filters all push, pull request created, and pull request updated events.

Note

The PULL_REQUEST_REOPENED works with GitHub and GitHub Enterprise only.

ACTOR_ACCOUNT_ID

A webhook event triggers a build when a GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, or Bitbucket account ID matches the regular expression pattern .

HEAD_REF

A webhook event triggers a build when the head reference matches the regular expression pattern . For example, refs/heads/branch-name and refs/tags/tag-name .

Works with GitHub and GitHub Enterprise push, GitHub and GitHub Enterprise pull request, Bitbucket push, and Bitbucket pull request events.

BASE_REF

A webhook event triggers a build when the base reference matches the regular expression pattern . For example, refs/heads/branch-name .

Note

Works with pull request events only.

FILE_PATH

A webhook triggers a build when the path of a changed file matches the regular expression pattern .

Note

Works with GitHub and GitHub Enterprise push events only.

pattern -> (string)

For a WebHookFilter that uses EVENT type, a comma-separated string that specifies one or more events. For example, the webhook filter PUSH, PULL_REQUEST_CREATED, PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED allows all push, pull request created, and pull request updated events to trigger a build.

For a WebHookFilter that uses any of the other filter types, a regular expression pattern. For example, a WebHookFilter that uses HEAD_REF for its type and the pattern ^refs/heads/ triggers a build when the head reference is a branch with a reference name refs/heads/branch-name .

excludeMatchedPattern -> (boolean)

Used to indicate that the pattern determines which webhook events do not trigger a build. If true, then a webhook event that does not match the pattern triggers a build. If false, then a webhook event that matches the pattern triggers a build.

lastModifiedSecret -> (timestamp)

A timestamp that indicates the last time a repository's secret token was modified.
