get-differences

Description

Returns information about the differences in a valid commit specifier (such as a branch, tag, HEAD, commit ID, or other fully qualified reference). Results can be limited to a specified path.

See also: AWS API Documentation

get-differences is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: differences

Options

--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository where you want to get differences.

--before-commit-specifier (string)

The branch, tag, HEAD, or other fully qualified reference used to identify a commit (for example, the full commit ID). Optional. If not specified, all changes before the afterCommitSpecifier value are shown. If you do not use beforeCommitSpecifier in your request, consider limiting the results with maxResults .

--after-commit-specifier (string)

The branch, tag, HEAD, or other fully qualified reference used to identify a commit.

--before-path (string)

The file path in which to check for differences. Limits the results to this path. Can also be used to specify the previous name of a directory or folder. If beforePath and afterPath are not specified, differences are shown for all paths.

--after-path (string)

The file path in which to check differences. Limits the results to this path. Can also be used to specify the changed name of a directory or folder, if it has changed. If not specified, differences are shown for all paths.

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Examples

Note

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 .

To get information about differences for a commit specifier in a repository

This example shows view metadata information about changes between two commit specifiers (branch, tag, HEAD, or other fully qualified references, such as commit IDs) in a renamed folder in AWS CodeCommit repository named MyDemoRepo. The example includes several options that are not required, including --before-commit-specifier, --before-path, and --after-path, in order to more fully illustrate how you can use these options to limit the results. The response includes file mode permissions.

Command:

aws codecommit get-differences --repository-name MyDemoRepo --before-commit-specifier 955bba12thisisanexamplethisisanexample --after-commit-specifier 14a95463thisisanexamplethisisanexample --before-path tmp/example-folder --after-path tmp/renamed-folder

Output:

{
  "differences": [
      {
          "afterBlob": {
              "path": "blob.txt",
              "blobId": "2eb4af3b1thisisanexamplethisisanexample1",
              "mode": "100644"
          },
          "changeType": "M",
          "beforeBlob": {
              "path": "blob.txt",
              "blobId": "bf7fcf281thisisanexamplethisisanexample1",
              "mode": "100644"
          }
      }
  ]
}
