Configure credentials

One of the cool things about CodeCommit is the support for IAM authentication. And if you are running this workshop from a Cloud9 workspace, you can leverage the fact that your terminal is already pre-authenticated with valid AWS credentials.

Run the following commands from your terminal:

git config --global credential.helper '!aws codecommit credential-helper $@'
git config --global credential.UseHttpPath true

Now configure the git client with username and email, so your commits have an author defined.

git config --global "Replace with your name"
git config --global ""
