AWS CLI Client

Sources:

Install

Following instructions:

curl "https://awscli.amazonaws.com/awscli-exe-linux-x86_64.zip" -o "awscliv2.zip"
unzip awscliv2.zip
sudo ./aws/install

Enable auto complete - I added these to my .zshrc:

autoload bashcompinit && bashcompinit
autoload -Uz compinit && compinit
complete -C '/usr/local/bin/aws_completer' aws

Use

Verify the version:

$ aws --version
aws-cli/2.4.29 Python/3.8.8 Linux/5.13.0-37-generic exe/x86_64.linuxmint.20 prompt/off

or on Windows:

PS C:\Users\asoko> aws --version
aws-cli/2.5.2 Python/3.9.11 Windows/10 exe/AMD64 prompt/off

Configure, e.g. for local use:

PS C:\Users\asoko> aws configure
AWS Access Key ID [None]: keyid
AWS Secret Access Key [None]: accesskey
Default region name [None]: us-west-1
Default output format [None]:

Pagination

It helps me to disable pagination in ~/.aws/credentials:

[default]
cli_pager=

Controlling command output

Topics:

$ aws ec2 describe-volumes --profile dev --output table \
    --no-cli-pager \
    --query 'sort_by(Volumes, &VolumeId)[].{VolumeId: VolumeId, VolumeType: VolumeType, InstanceId: Attachments[0].InstanceId, State: Attachments[0].State}'
