Login to AWS from AWS Tools for Powershell

0 votes

I'm trying to use AWS Tools from Powershell, but I don't know how to log in. So when I run a command I naturally get this error:No credentials specified or obtained from persisted/shell defaults.

If your IAM user account doesn't already have Access and Secret Keys you'll need to create them here.


Then create a profile

Writes a new (or updates existing) profile with name "myProfileName" in the encrypted SDK store file

Set-AWSCredential -AccessKey akey -SecretKey skey -StoreAs myProfileName

Checks the encrypted SDK credential store for the profile and then falls back to the shared credentials file in the default location

Set-AWSCredential -ProfileName myProfileName
