--client-request-token (string)

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.

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 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 account. 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"
