Or download the latest release and install by running:

Start the interactive command line tool:


Then use the following commands:

  • save Save credentials (if any) found in your existing config files for later use

  • add Allows you to add a new set of credentials (identity)

  • edit Make changes to existing identity

  • change Select one of your stored identies and modifies (or creates) the configuration files for most AWS client libraries

  • import Import identities from a csv file downloaded from the IAM Console (created whenever you add new users)

Additional Info

All of the credentials are saved by default in your home directory:


The scripts are designed to keep the permissions of this as well as the modified config files secured and only accessible to the current user. Before any changes are made to any existing AWS config files, they are backed up:


This is only done if the backup filename doesn’t already exist though. In other words, it would be a good idea to have your credentials somewhere safe before running the script.
