get-file

Description

Returns the base-64 encoded contents of a specified file and its metadata.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-file
--repository-name <value>
[--commit-specifier <value>]
--file-path <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository that contains the file.

--commit-specifier (string)

The fully-quaified reference that identifies the commit that contains the file. For example, you could specify a full commit ID, a tag, a branch name, or a reference such as refs/heads/master. If none is provided, then the head commit will be used.

--file-path (string)

The fully-qualified path to the file, including the full name and extension of the file. For example, /examples/file.md is the fully-qualified path to a file named file.md in a folder named examples.

--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 get the base-64 encoded contents of a file in an AWS CodeCommit repository

The following get-file example demonstrates how to get the base-64 encoded contents of a file named README.md from a branch named master in a repository named MyDemoRepo.

aws codecommit get-file --repository-name MyDemoRepo --commit-specifier master --file-path README.md

Output:

{
    "blobId":"559b44fEXAMPLE",
    "commitId":"c5709475EXAMPLE",
    "fileContent":"IyBQaHVzEXAMPLE",
    "filePath":"README.md",
    "fileMode":"NORMAL",
    "fileSize":1563
}

For more information, see GetFile in the AWS CodeCommit API Reference guide.

Output

commitId -> (string)

The full commit ID of the commit that contains the content returned by GetFile.

blobId -> (string)

The blob ID of the object that represents the file content.

filePath -> (string)

The fully qualified path to the specified file. This returns the name and extension of the file.

fileMode -> (string)

The extrapolated file mode permissions of the blob. Valid values include strings such as EXECUTABLE and not numeric values.

Note

The file mode permissions returned by this API are not the standard file mode permission values, such as 100644, but rather extrapolated values. See below for a full list of supported return values.

fileSize -> (long)

The size of the contents of the file, in bytes.

fileContent -> (blob)

The base-64 encoded binary data object that represents the content of the file.
