Configuring AWS CLI:
Before you can start using AWS CLI, you need to configure it with your AWS credentials and specify a default region. You can do this by running:
This command will prompt you to enter:
- AWS Access Key ID: This is your AWS access key.
- AWS Secret Access Key: This is the corresponding secret key.
- Default region name: Enter your preferred AWS region (e.g., us-east-1).
- Default output format: You can leave this as ‘json’ or choose another format.
Here are some basic AWS CLI commands to get you started:
List S3 buckets:
aws s3 ls
List EC2 instances:
aws ec2 describe-instances
List available AWS regions:
aws ec2 describe-regions
Named Profiles (Optional):
If you have multiple AWS accounts or need to switch between different AWS configurations, you can use named profiles. To create a named profile, use the
aws configure --profile myprofile
This will create a profile named
myprofile in your AWS CLI configuration. You can then use this profile with commands like this:
aws s3 ls --profile myprofile
