AWS CodePipeline Source Actions for AWS CodeCommit,, GitHub Enterprise Server, and now support cloning of your git repositories. With the new feature, when you create a connection to an external source provider in the Source Action, CodePipeline will clone the git repository to fetch the commit history and metadata.

AWS CodePipeline is a fully managed continuous delivery service that helps you automate your release pipelines for fast and reliable application and infrastructure updates. CodePipeline automates the build, test, and deploy phases of your release process every time there is a code change, based on the release model you define. With CodePipeline’s git clone feature you can execute git commands in subsequent actions in your pipeline based on permissions defined in AWS Identity and Access Management (AWS IAM).
