Information about the SNS topics associated with a notification rule.

TargetType -> (string)

The target type. Can be an Amazon SNS topic.

TargetAddress -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the SNS topic.

Shorthand Syntax:

TargetType=string,TargetAddress=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "TargetAddress": "string"

--detail-type (string)

The level of detail to include in the notifications for this resource. BASIC will include only the contents of the event as it would appear in AWS CloudWatch. FULL will include any supplemental information provided by AWS CodeStar Notifications and/or the service for the resource for which the notification is created.

Possible values:

  • FULL

--client-request-token (string)

A unique, client-generated idempotency token that, when provided in a request, ensures the request cannot be repeated with a changed parameter. If a request with the same parameters is received and a token is included, the request returns information about the initial request that used that token.


The AWS SDKs prepopulate client request tokens. If you are using an AWS SDK, an idempotency token is created for you.

Possible values:


--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 create a notification rule

The following create-notification-rule example uses a JSON file named rule.json to create a notification rule named MyNotificationRule for a repository named MyDemoRepo in the specified AWS acccount. Notifications with the FULL detail type are sent to the specified target Amazon SNS topic when branches and tags are created.

aws codestar-notifications create-notification-rule \
    --cli-input-json file://rule.json

Contents of rule.json:

    "Name": "MyNotificationRule",
    "EventTypeIds": [
    "Resource": "arn:aws:codecommit:us-east-1:123456789012:MyDemoRepo",
    "Targets": [
            "TargetType": "SNS",
            "TargetAddress": "arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456789012:MyNotificationTopic"
    "Status": "ENABLED",
    "DetailType": "FULL"


    "Arn": "arn:aws:codestar-notifications:us-east-1:123456789012:notificationrule/dc82df7a-EXAMPLE"
