AWS is renaming AWS CodeStar Connections to AWS CodeConnections. The name change is effective in the APIs, CLI, SDK, and documentation. The AWS Management Console will create connection resources referencing CodeStar Connections till May 1, 2024, and after that it will generate connection resources referencing CodeConnections, to give you time to make changes in your IAM policies to use the new resource names. Your existing connections that reference AWS CodeStar Connections will still to continue to work as they did previously. The new APIs, CLI and Console will accept both the old and new connection resource identifiers, and the old APIs, CLI and SDK referencing CodeStar Connections will not be available after April 2025.  

AWS CodeConnections integrates with third party Git-based source providers such as GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket, and enables AWS services such as AWS CodePipeline, Amazon CodeWhisperer, and AWS CloudFormation to get notified on repository events, and download the source code to build, test and deploy code.
