You must specify a region You can also configure your region by running aws configure

Hello Guys,

I have configured AWS CLI on my windows system. I am trying to see my instances from cli. But it gives me the below error.

C:\Users\Nadeem Akhter>aws ec2 describe-instances
You must specify a region. You can also configure your region by running "aws configure".

How to solve this error?

Hi@akhtar,

When you installed AWS CLI first time in your local system, you have to configure AWS credential using the below given command.

C:\Users\Nadeem Akhter>aws configure
AWS Access Key ID [****************4JTQ]:
AWS Secret Access Key [****************r1xF]:
Default region name [None]:
Default output format [None]:

Here you have to pass your credentials. But in your case you missed to set region name. So try to set region name and then try. It will work.

For a better understanding, check out the AWS Training and Certification.
