AWS CodeCommit Integration with AWS CodePipeline Tutorial


AWS CodeCommit integration with AWS CodePipeline allows you to leverage the benefits of a fully managed source control service in your continuous delivery workflow. By connecting AWS CodeCommit repositories with AWS CodePipeline, you can automate the build, test, and deployment processes of your applications. This tutorial will guide you through the steps to integrate AWS CodeCommit with AWS CodePipeline.


  • An AWS account with access to AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeCommit.
  • An existing AWS CodeCommit repository or the ability to create one.
  • Permissions to create and configure AWS CodePipeline pipelines.
  • An AWS CodeBuild project for building your application.
  • An AWS Elastic Beanstalk environment or an AWS Lambda function for deploying your application.

Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Set Up AWS CodeCommit Repository

1. Go to the AWS Management Console and open the CodeCommit service.

2. Create a new repository or use an existing one to store your source code.

3. Clone the repository to your local machine using the following command:

git clone

4. Navigate to the cloned repository's directory:

cd your-repo-name

5. Add your application code to the repository:

git add .

6. Commit the changes:

git commit -m "Initial commit"

7. Push the changes to the CodeCommit repository:

git push

Step 2: Configure AWS CodePipeline

1. Open the AWS CodePipeline console.

2. Click on "Create pipeline" to start creating a new pipeline.

3. Provide a name for your pipeline and click "Next".

4. Select "AWS CodeCommit" as the source provider.

5. Choose the CodeCommit repository and the branch to monitor for changes.

6. Configure your build stage to use your AWS CodeBuild project.

7. Configure your deploy stage to deploy your application using AWS Elastic Beanstalk or AWS Lambda.

8. Review the pipeline configuration and click "Create pipeline" to create your pipeline.

Step 3: Triggering Pipeline Execution

Once your pipeline is set up, it will automatically trigger whenever changes are pushed to the monitored branch in your AWS CodeCommit repository. You can also manually trigger a pipeline execution from the AWS CodePipeline console by selecting your pipeline and clicking "Release change".

Common Mistakes to Avoid

  • Incorrectly configuring the source provider and repository settings in AWS CodePipeline.
  • Not granting proper permissions to AWS CodePipeline to access your AWS CodeCommit repository.
  • Forgetting to configure the build and deploy stages in your pipeline.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. Q: Can I use multiple CodeCommit repositories in a single CodePipeline?
    A: Yes, you can configure multiple source actions in a CodePipeline to monitor different CodeCommit repositories.
  2. Q: Can I trigger a pipeline execution based on specific events in CodeCommit?
    A: Yes, you can configure event triggers, such as branch or tag creation, to initiate pipeline executions in response to specific CodeCommit events.
  3. Q: Can I use CodeCommit with other AWS services apart from CodePipeline?
    A: Yes, CodeCommit can be integrated with other services like AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy, and AWS CodeStar to create end-to-end CI/CD workflows.
  4. Q: Does CodeCommit support Git commands and workflows?
    A: Yes, CodeCommit is fully compatible with Git commands, allowing you to use Git workflows seamlessly.
  5. Q: How can I control access to my CodeCommit repositories?
    A: CodeCommit provides fine-grained access control through AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies, allowing you to manage user and group permissions.


Integrating AWS CodeCommit with AWS CodePipeline streamlines your software development and continuous delivery process. By following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can set up a pipeline that automatically builds, tests, and deploys your applications whenever changes are pushed to your CodeCommit repository. Avoiding common mistakes and understanding the key concepts of AWS CodeCommit integration with AWS CodePipeline will help you optimize your development workflow and enhance your application deployment process.
