[ aws . codecommit ]



Updates the state of a user's approval on a pull request. The user is derived from the signed-in account when the request is made.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--pull-request-id <value>
--revision-id <value>
--approval-state <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--pull-request-id (string)

The system-generated ID of the pull request.

--revision-id (string)

The system-generated ID of the revision.

--approval-state (string)

The approval state to associate with the user on the pull request.

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 approve or revoke approval for a pull request

The following update-pull-request-approval-state example approves a pull request with the ID of 27 and a revision ID of 9f29d167EXAMPLE. If you wanted to revoke approval instead, then set the --approval-state parameter value to REVOKE.

aws codecommit update-pull-request-approval-state \
    --pull-request-id 27  \
    --revision-id 9f29d167EXAMPLE  \
    --approval-state "APPROVE"

This command produces no output.
