--approval-rule-template-name (string)

The name of the template you want to associate with one or more repositories.

--repository-names (list)

The names of the repositories you want to associate with the template.

"string" "string" ...

--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 associate an approval rule template with multiple repositories in a single operation

The following batch-associate-approval-rule-template-with-repositories example associates the specified approval rule template with repositories named MyDemoRepo and MyOtherDemoRepo.

Note: Approval rule templates are specific to the AWS Region where they are created. They can only be associated with repositories in that AWS Region.

aws codecommit batch-associate-approval-rule-template-with-repositories \
    --repository-names MyDemoRepo, MyOtherDemoRepo  \
    --approval-rule-template-name 2-approver-rule-for-main
