The solution works with regularly used package managers and build tools like Maven and Gradle, npm and yarn, pip and twine. So it makes it easy for you to integrate CodeArtifact into your existing development workflows. You can configure CodeArtifact to automatically fetch software packages from public artifact repositories.
 
AWS said that CodeArtifact can be very useful for creating centralized repositories for sharing software packages approved for use across their development teams. Also, the integration with AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) offers you the capacity to control who has access to the packages.
 
Moreover, CodeArtifact’s support for AWS CloudTrail also gives visibility into which packages are in use and where. This makes it very easy to identify packages that need to be updated or removed. The solution also supports encryption with AWS Key Management Service.
