A tool that you can use to SSO via AWS Identity Providers and reload aws session in credentials file.

Project description


Works cross platform (Win, Unix, MacOS) Was having a real hard time trying to get cli credentials via SAML SSO so thought about writing this small utility. I can run this daily every morning to get a 12 hour session for myself. Hope you'd find it interesting and useful.

Looking forward to contributions!!


Need to install

  • Chromedriver ?
  • Google Chrome ?
  • Python 2/3 ?
  • AWS Cli ?

Make sure all the above software are setup properly in PATH environment variable


Add properties to your AWS credentials file

saml_sso_url = <url you use for saml, either okta saml or whatever you use>
saml_role_arn = <your iam role to assume>
saml_principal_arn = <your saml idp arn>
saml_duration = <duration of session in seconds, check iam role for maximum value>


python -m aws-saml

Warning: This will change your credentials file. If you don't want to do that, you can use DRY_RUN=Y python -m aws-saml which will only print the values.


pip install aws-cli-sso

Local development/testing

  • pip install -r requirements.txt
  • python -m aws-saml
