[ aws . codestar-connections ]



Lists the connections associated with your account.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--provider-type-filter <value>]
[--host-arn-filter <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--provider-type-filter (string)

Filters the list of connections to those associated with a specified provider, such as Bitbucket.

Possible values:

  • Bitbucket
  • GitHub
  • GitHubEnterpriseServer

--host-arn-filter (string)

Filters the list of connections to those associated with a specified host.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return in a single call. To retrieve the remaining results, make another call with the returned nextToken value.

--next-token (string)

The token that was returned from the previous ListConnections call, which can be used to return the next set of connections in the list.

--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 list connections

The following list-connections example retrieves a list of all connections in your account for the Bitbucket provider type.:

aws codestar-connections list-connections \
--provider-type Bitbucket \
--max-results 5 \
--next-token: next-token


    "Connections": [
            "ConnectionName": "my-connection",
            "ProviderType": "Bitbucket",
            "Status": "PENDING",
            "ARN": "arn:aws:codestar-connections:us-east-1:123456789012:connection/aEXAMPLE-8aad-4d5d-8878-dfcab0bc441f",
            "OwnerAccountId": "123456789012"
            "ConnectionName": "my-other-connection",
            "ProviderType": "Bitbucket",
            "Status": "AVAILABLE",
            "ARN": "arn:aws:codestar-connections:us-east-1:123456789012:connection/aEXAMPLE-8aad-4d5d-8878-dfcab0bc441f",
            "OwnerAccountId": "123456789012"
    "NextToken": "next-token"

For more information, see List connections (CLI) in the Developer Tools console User Guide.


Connections -> (list)

A list of connections and the details for each connection, such as status, owner, and provider type.


A resource that is used to connect third-party source providers with services like AWS CodePipeline.

Note: A connection created through CloudFormation, the CLI, or the SDK is in PENDING status by default. You can make its status AVAILABLE by updating the connection in the console.

ConnectionName -> (string)

The name of the connection. Connection names must be unique in an AWS user account.

ConnectionArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the connection. The ARN is used as the connection reference when the connection is shared between AWS services.


The ARN is never reused if the connection is deleted.

ProviderType -> (string)

The name of the external provider where your third-party code repository is configured.

OwnerAccountId -> (string)

The identifier of the external provider where your third-party code repository is configured. For Bitbucket, this is the account ID of the owner of the Bitbucket repository.

ConnectionStatus -> (string)

The current status of the connection.

HostArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the host associated with the connection.

NextToken -> (string)

A token that can be used in the next ListConnections call. To view all items in the list, continue to call this operation with each subsequent token until no more nextToken values are returned.
