Hi Guys,

I have created one IAM user. I want to use this IAM user to do my work from AWS CLI. But every time it uses the root account. How can I configure credentials for IAM users in CLI?

Hi@akhtar,

To pass credentials for your IAM user in AWS CLI, you have to use the profile keyword as given below.

C:\Users\Nadeem Akhter>aws configure --profile nadimpro
AWS Access Key ID [None]:
AWS Secret Access Key [None]:
Default region name [None]:
Default output format [None]:

Hope this will help you.
