In this blog post, we will discuss how to create a trigger in AWS CodeCommit repository using AWS CLI.

What Is Trigger In AWS CodeCommit Repository:

You can configure a CodeCommit repository so that code pushes or other events trigger actions, such as sending a notification from Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) or invoking a function in AWS Lambda. You can create up to 10 triggers for each CodeCommit repository. You can configure an SNS notification trigger to get an email notification every time someone pushes to the repository. You can also create a lambda trigger to notify an external build system to start a build after someone pushes to the main branch of the repository. In this demo, we will configure the SNS trigger using AWS CLI.
