A tool for logging into aws with ad credentials

Project description

# aws-ad

This project provides command line tool - aws-ad to simplify process of logging into AWS account with Windows AD credentials

It is inspired by basically identical tool aws-adfs. I wrote it mainly out of curioucity how to do it by myself, and was to lazy to check, why orginal tool randomly refused to work under bamboo

# Sample workflow

  1. Create config file: ~/.aws/auth. It will be used by aws-ad to connect to ADFS site and to login. Here is sample content:

    [profile-name]

    username=login@your-domain.com # password=your-password - this is OPTIONAL adfs-host=sts.your-domain.com provider-id=urn:amazon:your-company-provider-id role-arn=arn:aws:iam::1234567890:role/ADFS_ROLE_FOR_TASK

    # OPTIONAL variables that change behaviour of profile : # assume-role=arn:aws:iam::1234567890:role/role-to-assume-into-after-gettin-in # assume-profile=name-of-the-new-profile

  2. Run aws-ad with following options:

    aws-ad –profile profile-name

Keep in mind that profile-name must be the same as in config file above You may be prompted for password (to your login@your-domain.com in Active Directory). aws-ad modifies file ~/.aws/credentials. It saves AWS keys there in profile section (profile-name again).

  1. You can now run AWS CLI commands now. Remember to set AWS Region and AWS Profile, like this:

    export AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE=profile-name export AWS_DEFAULT_REGION=eu-central-1 aws s3 ls
