Manage AWS Parameter Store

Project description


An attempt to make AWS SSM Parameter Store interaction easier and exploit its full potential.

Several tools like chamber are already available to provide applications with secrets and other configuration values stored in AWS SSM Parameter Store as environment variables, but they were missing some handy features and flexible output formats, and I was struggling to find any that would also be able to set them.


$ aws-stash --help
usage: aws-stash [-h] [-p PARAMS [PARAMS ...]] [-w [WRITE]] [-m] [-f]
                 [-d DESCRIPTION] [-k KMS] [-c] [-o {text,json,export}] [-l]
                 [-r] [--delete] [-q] [--full] [-v]

positional arguments:
  path                  Path to the parameter key or folder containing
                        parameter keys

  -p PARAMS [PARAMS ...], --params PARAMS [PARAMS ...]
                        Parameter keys
  -w [WRITE], --write [WRITE]
                        Write parameter value, leave it empty to input it from
  -m, --multi-line      Accept multi-line value from STDIN, end input with
  -f, --force           Force overwrite existing value
                        Add a description to the parameter
  -k KMS, --kms KMS     KMS key alias to encrypt the value
  -c, --copy            Copy value to the clipboard instead of showing it
  -o {text,json,export}, --output {text,json,export}
                        Output format
  -l, --list            List all paramaters under same level path
  -r, --recursive       Process all paramaters recursively starting from path
  --delete              Delete a single parameter or all parameters
                        recursively starting from path if using --recurise
  -q, --quiet           Output only the values of the parameters
  --full                Output fully qualified parameter path
  -v, --verbose         Output parameters details

AWS credentials

This tool combines nicely with aws-vault to provide AWS credentials in a more secure and convenient way than storing them in ~/.aws/credentials files.

List keys recursively

$ aws-vault exec my-aws-profile -- aws-stash -r -l /

Installation from source
