Connecting AWS CodeCommit to Drata allows for the automated tests and evidence collection to prove to auditors that your company follows its software development lifecycle procedures.


Make sure you have Admin access to your company's AWS account. Specifically, you'll need the ability to create new roles.

The current instruction set utilizes the default read-only AWS CodeCommit policies required for a connection. In our opinion, these give our connection too much access and we will include instructions here on how to provide the most limited permission set, so the Drata API connection has bare minimum permissions. COMING SOON.

This integration can be affected by AWS exclusion tags, read more and find examples on them here: Exclusion tags within AWS


Follow these instructions to connect AWS CodeCommit to Drata:

1. Click on your company's name in the lower left corner.

2. Click "Connections" from that menu.

3. Click "Connect" for the AWS CodeCommit integration.

4. Follow the instructions in the slide-out panel carefully. Take your time and complete one step entirely before moving on to the next. Or you can review the detailed article on how to configure AWS.

Don't forget the final step of copying and pasting the ARN for the role you just created ("DrataCodeCommitRole") from AWS into the text field on Drata before clicking "Save & Test Connection."
