View and update package version details and dependencies

You can view information about a package version, including dependencies, in CodeArtifact. You can also update the status of a package version. For more information on package version status, see Package version status.

View package version details

Use the describe-package-version command to view details about package versions. Package version details are extracted from a package when it is published to CodeArtifact. The details in different packages vary and depend on their formats and how much information their authors added to them.

Most information in the output of the describe-package-version command depends on the package format. For example, describe-package-version extracts an npm package's information from its package.json file. The revision is created by CodeArtifact. For more information, see Specifying a package version revision.

Two package versions with the same name can be in the same repository if they each are in different namespaces. Use the optional --namespace parameter to specify a namespace. For more information, see View npm package version details or View Maven package version details.

The following example returns details about version 1.9.0 of a Python package named pyhamcrest that is in the my_repo repository.

aws codeartifact describe-package-version --domain my_domain --domain-owner 111122223333 --repository my_repo \ --format pypi --package pyhamcrest --package-version 1.9.0

The output might look like the following.

{ "format": "pypi", "package": "PyHamcrest", "displayName": "PyHamcrest", "version": "1.9.0", "summary": "Hamcrest framework for matcher objects", "homePage": "https://github.com/hamcrest/PyHamcrest", "publishedTime": 1566002944.273, "licenses": [ { "id": "license-id", "name": "license-name" } ], "revision": "REVISION-SAMPLE-55C752BEE9B772FC" }

View npm package version details

To view details about an npm package version, set the value of the --format option to npm. Optionally, include the package version namespace (npm scope) in the --namespace option. The value for the --namespace option should not include the leading @. To search for the namespace @types, set the value to types.

The following returns details about version 4.41.5 of an npm package named webpack in the @types scope.

aws codeartifact describe-package-version --domain my_domain --domain-owner 111122223333 --repository my_repo \ --format npm --package webpack --namespace types --package-version 4.41.5

The output might look like the following.

{ "format": "npm", "namespace": "types", "package": "webpack", "displayName": "webpack", "version": "4.41.5", "summary": "Packs CommonJs/AMD modules for the browser. Allows ... further output omitted for brevity", "homePage": "https://github.com/webpack/webpack", "sourceCodeRepository": "https://github.com/webpack/webpack.git", "publishedTime": 1577481261.09, "licenses": [ { "id": "license-id", "name": "license-name" } ], "revision": "REVISION-SAMPLE-55C752BEE9B772FC", "status": "Published", "origin": { "domainEntryPoint": { "externalConnectionName": "public:npmjs" }, "originType": "EXTERNAL" } }

View Maven package version details

To view details about a Maven package version, set the value of the --format option to maven and include the package version namespace in the --namespace option.

The following example returns details about version 1.2 of a Maven package named commons-rng-client-api that is in the org.apache.commons namespace and the my_repo repository.

aws codeartifact describe-package-version --domain my_domain --domain-owner 111122223333 --repository my_repo \ --format maven --namespace org.apache.commons --package commons-rng-client-api --package-version 1.2

The output might look like the following.

{ "format": "maven", "namespace": "org.apache.commons", "package": "commons-rng-client-api", "displayName": "Apache Commons RNG Client API", "version": "1.2", "summary": "API for client code that uses random numbers generators.", "publishedTime": 1567920624.849, "licenses": [], "revision": "REVISION-SAMPLE-55C752BEE9B772FC" }
Note

CodeArtifact does not extract package version detail information from parent POM files. The metadata for a given package version will only include information in the POM for that exact package version, not for the parent POM or any other POM referenced transitively using the POM parent tag. This means that the output of describe-package-version will omit metadata (such as license information) for Maven package versions that rely on a parent reference to contain this metadata.

View package version dependencies

Use the list-package-version-dependencies command to get a list of a package version's dependencies. The following command lists the dependencies of an npm package named my-package, version 4.41.5, in the my_repo repository, in the my_domain domain.

aws codeartifact list-package-version-dependencies --domain my_domain --domain-owner 111122223333 --repository my_repo \ --format npm --package my-package --package-version 4.41.5

The output might look like the following.

{ "dependencies": [ { "namespace": "webassemblyjs", "package": "ast", "dependencyType": "regular", "versionRequirement": "1.8.5" }, { "namespace": "webassemblyjs", "package": "helper-module-context", "dependencyType": "regular", "versionRequirement": "1.8.5" }, { "namespace": "webassemblyjs", "package": "wasm-edit", "dependencyType": "regular", "versionRequirement": "1.8.5" } ], "versionRevision": "REVISION-SAMPLE-55C752BEE9B772FC" }

For the range of supported values for the dependencyType field, see the PackageDependency data type in the CodeArtifact API.

View package version readme file

Some package formats, such as npm, include a README file. Use the get-package-version-readme to get the README file of a package version. The following command returns the README file of an npm package named my-package, version 4.41.5, in the my_repo repository, in the my_domain domain.

Note

CodeArtifact does not support displaying readme files from Maven packages.

aws codeartifact get-package-version-readme --domain my_domain --domain-owner 111122223333 --repository my_repo \ --format npm --package my-package --package-version 4.41.5

The output might look like the following.

{ "format": "npm", "package": "my-package", "version": "4.41.5" "readme": "<div align=\"center\">\n <a href=\https://github.com/webpack/webpack\"> ... more content ... \n", "versionRevision": "REVISION-SAMPLE-55C752BEE9B772FC" }
