Create a link to your repository - AWS Proton

Create a link to your repository

You can create a link to your repository using the console or CLI. When you create a repository link, AWS Proton creates a service linked role for you.

AWS Management Console

Create a link to your repository as shown in the following console steps.

  1. In the AWS Proton console, choose Repositories.

  2. Choose Create repository.

  3. In the Link new repository page, in the Repository details section:

    1. Choose your repository provider.

    2. Choose one of your existing connections. If you don't have one, choose Add a new CodeStar connection to create a connection, and then go back to the AWS Proton console, refresh the connection list, and choose your new connection.

    3. Choose from your connected source code repositories.

  4. [optional] In the Tags section, choose Add new tag one or more times, and enter Key and Value pairs.

  5. Choose Create repository.

  6. View the detail data for your linked repository.


Create and register a link to your repository.

Run the following command:

$ aws proton create-repository \ --name myrepos/environments \ --connection-arn "arn:aws:codestar-connections:region-id:123456789012:connection/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111" \ --provider "GITHUB" \ --encryption-key "arn:aws:kms:region-id:123456789012:key/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY \ --tags key=mytag1,value=value1 key=mytag2,value=value2

The last two parameters, --encryption-key and --tags, are optional.


{ "repository": { "arn": "arn:aws:proton:region-id:123456789012:repository/github:myrepos/environments", "connectionArn": "arn:aws:codestar-connections:region-id:123456789012:connection/2ad03b28-a7c4-EXAMPLE11111", "encryptionKey": "arn:aws:kms:region-id:123456789012:key/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY", "name": "myrepos/environments", "provider": "GITHUB" } }

After you create a repository link, you can view a list of AWS and customer managed tags, as shown in the following example command. AWS Proton automatically generates AWS managed tags for you. You can also modify and create customer managed tags using the AWS CLI. For more information, see AWS Proton resources and tagging.


$ aws proton list-tags-for-resource \ --resource-arn "arn:aws:proton:region-id:123456789012:repository/github:myrepos/environments"
