Options

--repository-name (string)

The name of the repository that contains the file.

--commit-specifier (string)

The fully quaified reference that identifies the commit that contains the file. For example, you can specify a full commit ID, a tag, a branch name, or a reference such as refs/heads/master. If none is provided, the head commit is used.

--file-path (string)

The fully qualified path to the file, including the full name and extension of the file. For example, /examples/file.md is the fully qualified path to a file named file.md in a folder named examples.

--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 get the base-64 encoded contents of a file in an AWS CodeCommit repository

The following get-file example demonstrates how to get the base-64 encoded contents of a file named README.md from a branch named main in a repository named MyDemoRepo.

aws codecommit get-file \
    --repository-name MyDemoRepo \
    --commit-specifier main \
    --file-path README.md

Output:

{
    "blobId":"559b44fEXAMPLE",
    "commitId":"c5709475EXAMPLE",
    "fileContent":"IyBQaHVzEXAMPLE",
    "filePath":"README.md",
    "fileMode":"NORMAL",
    "fileSize":1563
}

For more information, see GetFile in the AWS CodeCommit API Reference guide.

Output

commitId -> (string)

The full commit ID of the commit that contains the content returned by GetFile.

blobId -> (string)

The blob ID of the object that represents the file content.

filePath -> (string)

The fully qualified path to the specified file. Returns the name and extension of the file.

fileMode -> (string)

The extrapolated file mode permissions of the blob. Valid values include strings such as EXECUTABLE and not numeric values.

Note

The file mode permissions returned by this API are not the standard file mode permission values, such as 100644, but rather extrapolated values. See the supported return values.

fileSize -> (long)

The size of the contents of the file, in bytes.

fileContent -> (blob)

The base-64 encoded binary data object that represents the content of the file.
