The aws CLI allows resource management on the command line. It uses the following INI files (Private):

  • ~/.aws/credentials defines named sets of access (aws_access_key_id) and secret (aws_secret_access_key) keys.
  • ~/.aws/config defines configuration contexts which can be switched between using the AWS_PROFILE environment variable.
    • region defines the default region in which to create resources.
    • output defines the output format.
