How do i use wildcards to copy group of files in AWS CLI?

For some reason, I am having trouble using * in AWS CLI to copy a group of files from a S3 bucket.

Adding * to the path like this does not seem to work

aws s3 cp s3://myfiles/file*

Any suggestions?

If you are getting an error when using *, and if you want to download multiple files from an aws bucket to your current directory, you can use recursiveexclude, and include flags like this:

aws s3 cp s3://myfiles/ . --recursive --exclude "*" --include "file*"`
Try this out.
