For a specific version of the AWS CLI, append a hyphen and the version number to the filename. For this example the filename for version 2.0.30 would be awscli-exe-linux-x86_64-2.0.30.zip.sig resulting in the following command:
For a specific version of the AWS CLI, append a hyphen and the version number to the filename. For this example the filename for version 2.0.30 would be awscli-exe-linux-aarch64-2.0.30.zip.sig resulting in the following command:
Unzip the installer. If your Linux distribution doesn't have a built-in unzip command, use an equivalent to unzip it. The following example command unzips the package and creates a directory named aws under the current directory.
When updating from a previous version, the unzip command prompts to overwrite existing files. To skip these prompts, such as with script automation, use the -u update flag for unzip. This flag automatically updates existing files and creates new ones as needed.
Run the install program. The installation command uses a file named install in the newly unzipped aws directory. By default, the files are all installed to /usr/local/aws-cli, and a symbolic link is created in /usr/local/bin. The command includes sudo to grant write permissions to those directories.
Due to standard user permissions, after the installer finishes, you must manually create a symlink file in your $PATH that points to the aws and aws_completer programs by using the following commands at the command prompt. If your $PATH includes a folder you can write to, you can run the following command without sudo if you specify that folder as the target's path. If you don't have a writable folder in your $PATH, you must use sudo in the commands to get permissions to write to the specified target folder. The default location for a symlink is /usr/local/bin/.
If you have sudo permissions, you can install the AWS CLI for all users on the computer. We provide the steps in one easy to copy and paste group. See the descriptions of each line in the following steps.
Run the standard macOS installer program, specifying the downloaded .pkg file as the source. Use the -pkg parameter to specify the name of the package to install, and the -target / parameter for which drive to install the package to. The files are installed to /usr/local/aws-cli, and a symlink is automatically created in /usr/local/bin. You must include sudo on the command to grant write permissions to those folders.
To specify which folder the AWS CLI is installed to, you must create an XML file with any file name. This file is an XML-formatted file that looks like the following example. Leave all values as shown, except you must replace the path /Users/myusername in line 9 with the path to the folder you want the AWS CLI installed to. The folder must already exist, or the command fails. The following XML example, named choices.xml, specifies the installer to install the AWS CLI in the folder /Users/myusername, where it creates a folder named aws-cli.
Download the pkg installer using the curl command. The -o option specifies the file name that the downloaded package is written to. In this example, the file is written to AWSCLIV2.pkg in the current folder.
Because standard user permissions typically don't allow writing to folders in your $PATH, the installer in this mode doesn't try to add the symlinks to the aws and aws_completer programs. For the AWS CLI to run correctly, you must manually create the symlinks after the installer finishes. If your $PATH includes a folder you can write to and you specify the folder as the target's path, you can run the following command without sudo. If you don't have a writable folder in your $PATH, you must use sudo for permissions to write to the specified target folder. The default location for a symlink is /usr/local/bin/.
If you come across issues after installing or uninstalling the AWS CLI, see Troubleshooting AWS CLI errors for troubleshooting steps. For the most relevant troubleshooting steps, see Command not found errors, The "aws --version" command returns a different version than you installed, and The "aws --version" command returns a version after uninstalling the AWS CLI.
The AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) is a unified tool to manage your AWS services. With just one tool to download and configure, you can control multiple AWS services from the command line and automate them through scripts.
aws-shell is a command-line shell program that provides convenience and productivity features to help both new and advanced users of the AWS Command Line Interface. Key features include the following.
For a specific version of the AWS CLI, append a hyphen and the version number to the filename. For this example the filename for version 1.16.312 would be awscli-bundle-1.16.312.zip resulting in the following command:
Run the install program. The installer installs the AWS CLI at /usr/local/aws and creates the symlink aws at the /usr/local/bin directory. The command uses the -b parameter to specify the directory where the installer places the aws symlink file. You must have write permissions to the specified directory.
If you don't already have pip installed, you can install it by using the script that the Python Packaging Authority provides. Run pip --version to see if your version of Linux already includes Python and pip. We recommend that if you have Python version 3 or later installed, you use the pip3 command.
Use the curl command to download the installation script. The following command uses the -O (uppercase "O") parameter to specify that the downloaded file is to be stored in the current folder using the same name it has on the remote host.
Run the script with the python or python3 command to download and install the latest version of pip and other required support packages. When you include the --user switch, the script installs pip to the path ~/.local/bin.
For a specific version of the AWS CLI, append two equals signs = and the version number to the filename. For this example the filename for version 1.16.312 would be ==1.16.312 resulting in the following command:
Note: You can specify an expiration duration (in seconds) using the --duration-seconds option in the sts get-session-token command, where the value can range from 900 seconds (15 minutes) to 129600 seconds (36 hours). If you are using root user credentials, then the range is from 900 seconds (15 minutes) to 3600 seconds (1 hour).
You can also use named profiles to specify the commands that require MFA authentication. To do so, edit the credentials file in the .aws folder in the home directory of the user to add a new profile configuration for issuing MFA-authenticated commands. Here's an example profile configuration:
If the AWS CLI is configured using the configure command, there's a default configuration with permanent AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user credentials. This IAM user can use commands that don't require MFA authentication.
Important: Be sure that you understand the credential precedence so that you can verify that correct credentials are used when making API calls. This can be done by using the GetCallerIdentity command.
The AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) is a unified tool to manage AWS services from the command line.All CLI commands that access services that are implemented in LocalStack can be run against LocalStack.
awslocal is a thin wrapper and a drop-in replacement for the aws command that runs commands directly against LocalStack (no need to specify --endpoint-url anymore).The source code can be found on GitHub: -local
Note that the command above also installs the latest version of the underlying AWS CLI version 1 (awscli) package. Use this command if you prefer to manage your own version of awscli (e.g., v1/v2) and install the wrapper script only:$ pip install awscli-local
Please note that there is a known limitation for using the cloudformation package ... command with the AWS CLI v2.The problem is that the AWS CLI v2 is not available as a package on pypi.org, but is instead shipped as a binary package that cannot be easily patched from awslocal.To work around this issue, you have 2 options:
AWS is the most widely used cloud service in the world and provides a collection of services that can be leveraged by developers to build their applications. To manage the various AWS services, you can use either the AWS Management Console or the AWS Command Line Interface. However if you want automate your development environment setup using scripts, the AWS CLI is your preferred tool.
The AWS Command Line Interface is an open source tool built on top of the AWS SDK for Python that provides commands for interacting with AWS services. All the functionality provided by the AWS Management Console are also being provided from the AWS Command Line Interface tool. The AWS CLI is immensely helpful when you want to automate the resource management process by writing shell scripts, so that it can be reused over and over again by different set of developers. 2b1af7f3a8
