--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 either the access token or the app password. For the authType CODECONNECTIONS, this is the connectionArn .

--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, GitLab, GitLab Self Managed, or Bitbucket repository. An OAUTH connection is not supported by the API and must be created using the CodeBuild console. Note that CODECONNECTIONS is only valid for GitLab and GitLab Self Managed.

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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

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.
