I am using amazon code commit, which is their cloud git. However, it doesn't use the typical username + password for authentication. Instead, it uses the IAM like all the rest of their services. This seems to create a problem for jgit.

This is what is used instead:

[credential]
helper = !aws --profile CodeCommitProfile codecommit credential-helper $@
UseHttpPath = true

This works fine on the command line with the OS git, but jgit asks for username and password and fails when it is not given it with authentication failed messages.

Is there a way to use the credential helper instead?

Shaun,

this article describes how JGit can be configured to push and fetch
to/from Amazon S3:
http://blog.spearce.org/2008/07/using-jgit-to-publish-on-amazon-s3.html

Since both - S3 and CodeCommit - use IAM, the described approach might
help in your case.

It doesn't quite work the same. It looks like the amazon-s3 url expects them to be in a specific bucket (no surprise). They aren't in buckets here, so it fails.
