[ aws . codecommit ]



Creates an unreferenced commit that represents the result of merging two branches using a specified merge strategy. This can help you determine the outcome of a potential merge. This API cannot be used with the fast-forward merge strategy, as that strategy does not create a merge commit.


This unreferenced merge commit can only be accessed using the GetCommit API or through git commands such as git fetch. To retrieve this commit, you must specify its commit ID or otherwise reference it.

--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository where you want to create the unreferenced merge commit.

--source-commit-specifier (string)

The branch, tag, HEAD, or other fully qualified reference used to identify a commit. For example, a branch name or a full commit ID.

--destination-commit-specifier (string)

The branch, tag, HEAD, or other fully qualified reference used to identify a commit. For example, a branch name or a full commit ID.

--merge-option (string)

The merge option or strategy you want to use to merge the code.

Possible values:


--conflict-detail-level (string)

The level of conflict detail to use. If unspecified, the default FILE_LEVEL is used, which will return a not mergeable result if the same file has differences in both branches. If LINE_LEVEL is specified, a conflict will be considered not mergeable if the same file in both branches has differences on the same line.

Possible values:


--conflict-resolution-strategy (string)

Specifies which branch to use when resolving conflicts, or whether to attempt automatically merging two versions of a file. The default is NONE, which requires any conflicts to be resolved manually before the merge operation will be successful.

Possible values:

  • NONE

--author-name (string)

The name of the author who created the unreferenced commit. This information will be used as both the author and committer for the commit.

--email (string)

The email address for the person who created the unreferenced commit.

--commit-message (string)

The commit message for the unreferenced commit.

--keep-empty-folders | --no-keep-empty-folders (boolean)

If the commit contains deletions, whether to keep a folder or folder structure if the changes leave the folders empty. If this is specified as true, a .gitkeep file will be created for empty folders. The default is false.

--conflict-resolution (structure)

A list of inputs to use when resolving conflicts during a merge if AUTOMERGE is chosen as the conflict resolution strategy.

      "content": blob,

  "setFileModes": [
      "filePath": "string",
      "fileMode": "EXECUTABLE"|"NORMAL"|"SYMLINK"

--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.


commitId -> (string)

The full commit ID of the commit that contains your merge results.

treeId -> (string)

The full SHA-1 pointer of the tree information for the commit that contains the merge results.
