merge-branches-by-fast-forward

Description

Merges two branches using the fast-forward merge strategy.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  merge-branches-by-fast-forward
--repository-name <value>
--source-commit-specifier <value>
--destination-commit-specifier <value>
[--target-branch <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository where you want to merge two branches.

--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).

--target-branch (string)

The branch where the merge is applied.

--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 merge two branches using the fast-forward merge strategy

The following merge-branches-by-fast-forward example merges the specified source branch with the specified destination branch in a repository named MyDemoRepo.

aws codecommit merge-branches-by-fast-forward \
    --source-commit-specifier bugfix-bug1234 \
    --destination-commit-specifier bugfix-bug1233 \
    --repository-name MyDemoRepo

Output:

{
    "commitId": "4f178133EXAMPLE",
    "treeId": "389765daEXAMPLE"
}

For more information, see Compare and Merge Branches in the AWS CodeCommit User Guide.

Output

commitId -> (string)

The commit ID of the merge in the destination or target branch.

treeId -> (string)

The tree ID of the merge in the destination or target branch.
