API Reference (API Version 2015-04-13)

CreatePullRequest

Creates a pull request in the specified repository.

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

clientRequestToken

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 is received with the same parameters and a token is included, the request will return information about the initial request that used that token.

Note

The AWS SDKs prepopulate client request tokens. If using an AWS SDK, you do not have to generate an idempotency token, as this will be done for you.
