Working with Amazon CodeCatalyst resources from the Amazon Toolkit for Visual Studio

The following sections provide an overview of the Amazon Amazon CodeCatalyst resource management features that are available for the Amazon Toolkit for Visual Studio.

Clone a repository

CodeCatalyst is a cloud-based service that requires you to be connected to the cloud to work on CodeCatalyst projects. To work on a project locally, you can clone CodeCatalyst repositories to your local machine and sync with your CodeCatalyst project the next time that you connect to the cloud.

To clone a repository to your local machine, complete the following steps.

  1. From the Git menu item in Visual Studio, choose Clone Repository....

  2. From the Browse a Repository section, select Amazon CodeCatalyst as the provider.


    If the Connection section displays a Not Connected message, complete the steps in the Authentication and access: Amazon Builder ID section of this User Guide before proceeding.

  3. Choose the Space and Project that you want to clone a repository from.

  4. From the Repositories section, choose the repository that you want to clone.

  5. From the Path section, choose the folder you want to clone your repository to.


    This folder must initially be empty to clone successfully.

  6. Select Clone to begin cloning the repository.

  7. After the repository has been cloned, Visual Studio will load your cloned solution


    If Visual Studio does not open the solution in the cloned repository, your Visual Studio options can be adjusted from the Automatically load the solution when opening a Git repository setting, located in the Git Global Settings, of the Source Control menu.
