How to Get CodeBuild to Build Develop NOT the PR Branch?


Hi, I am trying to setup CodeBuild to build the develop branch that the PR is merged into rather than building the actual PR branch. The reason for this is sometime peoples PR brances don't yet include the develop changes made since their PR was created. Can someone tell me what I need to do in the Source section of CodeBuild in order to achieve this? thanks

In CodeBuild, you can use the source version to specify the branch.

Check these documents for more information: Source version sample with CodeBuild and Create a build project (console)

  • Hi thanks. Yes I do set the source version to develop and that works fine for manually triggered builds, but when I want to automatically trigger my pull requests and to build on various event, I can't figure out how to set that up to build the develop branch when a PR is merged into develop. What seems to happen is that the PR builds but it the PR branch as opposed to the develop branch that it is merging into.
