AWS Lambda function

Reviewing the function

Our AWS Lambda function is written in Node.js and leverages the AWS SDK for JavaScript in Node.js as well as an npm module:

Request - Simplified HTTP client.

The beginning of our code will import these modules and define a few variables. Among these will be the endpoint for our Atlassian Connect App which we will pass as an environment variable, BASE_URL, in our Lambda function.

console.log('Starting getCommitId...');

const AWS = require('aws-sdk');
const codecommit = new AWS.CodeCommit({ apiVersion: '2015-04-13' });
const request = require('request');
const baseURL = process.env.BASE_URL

The next section of our code will define the AWS Lambda Function Handler. AWS Lambda invokes your Lambda function via a handler object. A handler represents the name of your Lambda function and serves as the entry point that AWS Lambda uses to execute your function code. We will enumerate the event data and define a few variables such as commitId and repository which we will then pass to getCommit method in order to pull additional information about a commit, including commit message and committer information. We will then declare responseBody and using JSON.stringify() convert this data to JSON.

exports.handler = function(event, context) {

    (event.Records || []).forEach(function(rec) {
        var details = rec.codecommit.references[0];
        var commitId = details.commit;
        var repository = rec.eventSourceARN.split(":")[5];
        var params = {
            commitId: commitId,
            repositoryName: repository

        codecommit.getCommit(params, function(err, data) {
            if (err) {
                console.log(err, err.stack);
                var message = "Error getting commit data for commitId: " + commitId;
            } else {
                var details = data.commit;
                var commitMessage = data.commit.message;
                var authorName =;
                var authorEmail =;
                var authorTimestamp =;
                var responseBody = JSON.stringify({
                    repositories: [
                            name: repository,
                            commits: [
                                    id: commitId,
                                    message: commitMessage,
                                    author: {
                                        name: authorName,
                                        email: authorEmail
                                    authorTimestamp: authorTimestamp
                console.log("Response body:\n", responseBody);

The last section of our code will declare a few more variables for preparing our payload and pass these to request which will POST the data to our Atlassian Connect app.

var send = {
    method: 'POST',
    url: baseURL,
    headers: {
        'Accept': 'application/json',
        'Content-Type': 'application/json'
    body: responseBody

request(send, function(error, response, body) {
    console.log('error:', error);
    console.log('statusCode:', response && response.statusCode);
    console.log('body:', body);

In the code block referenced above, note that we are passing our environment variable baseURL to send. In order for this to complete successfully, you will need to update this value within your Lambda function before it triggers. Otherwise, the value will be null and the payload will not be sent.
