create-webhook

Description

For an existing CodeBuild build project that has its source code stored in a GitHub or Bitbucket repository, enables CodeBuild to start rebuilding the source code every time a code change is pushed to the repository.

Warning

If you enable webhooks for an CodeBuild project, and the project is used as a build step in CodePipeline, then two identical builds are created for each commit. One build is triggered through webhooks, and one through CodePipeline. Because billing is on a per-build basis, you are billed for both builds. Therefore, if you are using CodePipeline, we recommend that you disable webhooks in CodeBuild. In the CodeBuild console, clear the Webhook box. For more information, see step 5 in Change a Build Project's Settings .

Options

--project-name (string)

The name of the CodeBuild project.

--branch-filter (string)

A regular expression used to determine which repository branches are built when a webhook is triggered. If the name of a branch matches the regular expression, then it is built. If branchFilter is empty, then all branches are built.

Note

It is recommended that you use filterGroups instead of branchFilter .

--filter-groups (list)

An array of arrays of WebhookFilter objects used to determine which webhooks are triggered. At least one WebhookFilter in the array must specify EVENT as its type .

For a build to be triggered, at least one filter group in the filterGroups array must pass. For a filter group to pass, each of its filters must pass.

(list)

(structure)

A filter used to determine which webhooks trigger a build.

type -> (string)

The type of webhook filter. There are six webhook filter types: EVENT , ACTOR_ACCOUNT_ID , HEAD_REF , BASE_REF , FILE_PATH , and COMMIT_MESSAGE .

EVENT

A webhook event triggers a build when the provided pattern matches one of five event types: PUSH , PULL_REQUEST_CREATED , PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED , PULL_REQUEST_REOPENED , and PULL_REQUEST_MERGED . The EVENT patterns are specified as a comma-separated string. For example, PUSH, PULL_REQUEST_CREATED, PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED filters all push, pull request created, and pull request updated events.

Note

The PULL_REQUEST_REOPENED works with GitHub and GitHub Enterprise only.

ACTOR_ACCOUNT_ID

A webhook event triggers a build when a GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, or Bitbucket account ID matches the regular expression pattern .

HEAD_REF

A webhook event triggers a build when the head reference matches the regular expression pattern . For example, refs/heads/branch-name and refs/tags/tag-name .

Works with GitHub and GitHub Enterprise push, GitHub and GitHub Enterprise pull request, Bitbucket push, and Bitbucket pull request events.

BASE_REF

A webhook event triggers a build when the base reference matches the regular expression pattern . For example, refs/heads/branch-name .

Note

Works with pull request events only.

FILE_PATH

A webhook triggers a build when the path of a changed file matches the regular expression pattern .

Note

Works with GitHub and Bitbucket events push and pull requests events. Also works with GitHub Enterprise push events, but does not work with GitHub Enterprise pull request events.

COMMIT_MESSAGE

A webhook triggers a build when the head commit message matches the regular expression pattern .

Note

Works with GitHub and Bitbucket events push and pull requests events. Also works with GitHub Enterprise push events, but does not work with GitHub Enterprise pull request events.

pattern -> (string)

For a WebHookFilter that uses EVENT type, a comma-separated string that specifies one or more events. For example, the webhook filter PUSH, PULL_REQUEST_CREATED, PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED allows all push, pull request created, and pull request updated events to trigger a build.

For a WebHookFilter that uses any of the other filter types, a regular expression pattern. For example, a WebHookFilter that uses HEAD_REF for its type and the pattern ^refs/heads/ triggers a build when the head reference is a branch with a reference name refs/heads/branch-name .

excludeMatchedPattern -> (boolean)

Used to indicate that the pattern determines which webhook events do not trigger a build. If true, then a webhook event that does not match the pattern triggers a build. If false, then a webhook event that matches the pattern triggers a build.

Shorthand Syntax:

[{type=string,pattern=string,excludeMatchedPattern=boolean},{type=string,pattern=string,excludeMatchedPattern=boolean}] ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  [
    {
      "type": "EVENT"|"BASE_REF"|"HEAD_REF"|"ACTOR_ACCOUNT_ID"|"FILE_PATH"|"COMMIT_MESSAGE",
      "pattern": "string",
      "excludeMatchedPattern": true|false
    }
    ...
  ]
  ...
]

--build-type (string)

Specifies the type of build this webhook will trigger.

Possible values:

  • BUILD
  • BUILD_BATCH

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create webhook filters for an AWS CodeBuild project

The following create-webhook example creates a webhook for a CodeBuild project named my-project that has two filter groups. The first filter group specifies pull requests that are created, updated, or reopened on branches with Git reference names that match the regular expression ^refs/heads/master$ and head references that match ^refs/heads/myBranch$. The second filter group specifies push requests on branches with Git reference names that do not match the regular expression ^refs/heads/myBranch$.

aws codebuild create-webhook \
    --project-name my-project \
    --filter-groups "[[{\"type\":\"EVENT\",\"pattern\":\"PULL_REQUEST_CREATED, PULL_REQUEST_UPDATED, PULL_REQUEST_REOPENED\"},{\"type\":\"HEAD_REF\",\"pattern\":\"^refs/heads/myBranch$\",\"excludeMatchedPattern\":true},{\"type\":\"BASE_REF\",\"pattern\":\"^refs/heads/master$\",\"excludeMatchedPattern\":true}],[{\"type\":\"EVENT\",\"pattern\":\"PUSH\"},{\"type\":\"HEAD_REF\",\"pattern\":\"^refs/heads/myBranch$\",\"excludeMatchedPattern\":true}]]"
