[ aws . codebuild ]



Imports the source repository credentials for an CodeBuild project that has its source code stored in a GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, or Bitbucket repository.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--username <value>]
--token <value>
--server-type <value>
--auth-type <value>
[--should-overwrite | --no-should-overwrite]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--username (string)

The Bitbucket username when the authType is BASIC_AUTH. This parameter is not valid for other types of source providers or connections.

--token (string)

For GitHub or GitHub Enterprise, this is the personal access token. For Bitbucket, this is the app password.

--server-type (string)

The source provider used for this project.

Possible values:


--auth-type (string)

The type of authentication used to connect to a GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, or Bitbucket repository. An OAUTH connection is not supported by the API and must be created using the CodeBuild console.

Possible values:


--should-overwrite | --no-should-overwrite (boolean)

Set to false to prevent overwriting the repository source credentials. Set to true to overwrite the repository source credentials. The default value is true .

--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.


Connect an AWS CodeBuild user to a source provider by importing credentials for the source provider.

The following import-source-credentials example imports a token for a Bitbucket repository that uses BASIC_AUTH for its authentication type.

aws codebuild import-source-credentials --server-type BITBUCKET --auth-type BASIC_AUTH --token my-Bitbucket-password --username my-Bitbucket-username


    "arn": "arn:aws:codebuild:us-west-2:123456789012:token/bitbucket"

For more information, see Connect Source Providers with Access Tokens (CLI) in the AWS CodeBuild User Guide.


arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the token.
