[ aws . codecommit ]



Tests the functionality of repository triggers by sending information to the trigger target. If real data is available in the repository, the test will send data from the last commit. If no data is available, sample data will be generated.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--repository-name <value>
--triggers <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository in which to test the triggers.

--triggers (list)

The list of triggers to test.

Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,destinationArn=string,customData=string,branches=string,string,events=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "name": "string",
    "destinationArn": "string",
    "customData": "string",
    "branches": ["string", ...],
    "events": ["all"|"updateReference"|"createReference"|"deleteReference", ...]

--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.


To test triggers in a repository

This example demonstrates how to test a trigger named 'MyFirstTrigger' in an AWS CodeCommit repository named MyDemoRepo. In this example, events in the repository trigger notifications from an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic.


aws codecommit test-repository-triggers --repository-name MyDemoRepo --triggers name=MyFirstTrigger,destinationArn=arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:111111111111:MyCodeCommitTopic,branches=mainline,preprod,events=all
