AWS CodeCommit now enables you to restrict who can commit changes to the master branch or any branch of your choosing. Previously, you could control who can make changes to a repository but not to specific branches within a repository. Now, you can define which actions are allowed on a branch and who has permission to perform those actions. This makes it easy to set-up a workflow where only approved users can merge pull requests or commit changes to a sensitive branch.

To learn how to set branch-level permissions and why you might want to use them, check out our blog post. To get started with AWS CodeCommit, visit our getting started documentation. Visit the AWS global region table for a full list of AWS Regions where AWS CodeCommit is available.
