Create a Git tag in Amazon CodeCommit

You can use a Git tag to mark a commit with a label that helps other repository users understand its importance. To create a Git tag in a CodeCommit repository, you can use Git from a local repo connected to the CodeCommit repository. After you have created a Git tag in the local repo, you can use git push --tags to push it to the CodeCommit repository.

For more information, see View tag details.

Use Git to create a tag

Follow these steps to use Git from a local repo to create a Git tag in a CodeCommit repository.

In these steps, we assume that you have already connected the local repo to the CodeCommit repository. For instructions, see Connect to a repository.

  1. Run the git tag new-tag-name commit-id command, where new-tag-name is the new Git tag's name and commit-id is the ID of the commit to associate with the Git tag.

    For example, the following command creates a Git tag named beta and associates it with the commit ID dc082f9a...af873b88:

    git tag beta dc082f9a...af873b88
  2. To push the new Git tag from the local repo to the CodeCommit repository, run the git push remote-name new-tag-name command, where remote-name is the name of the CodeCommit repository and new-tag-name is the name of the new Git tag.

    For example, to push a new Git tag named beta to a CodeCommit repository named origin:

    git push origin beta
Note

To push all new Git tags from your local repo to the CodeCommit repository, run git push --tags.

To ensure your local repo is updated with all of the Git tags in the CodeCommit repository, run git fetch followed by git fetch --tags.

For more options, see your Git documentation.
