S3 proxy plugin for AWS CLI

Project description


This awscli plugin allows usage of proxy for S3 service stored in profile configuration.


The easiest way to install awscli-plugin-s3-proxy is to use `pip`:

$ pip install awscli-plugin-s3-proxy

You can also install the latest package from GitHub source which can contain changes not yet pushed to PyPI:

$ pip install git+

or, if you install `awscli` via Homebrew, which bundles its own python, install as following:

$ /usr/local/opt/awscli/libexec/bin/pip install awscli-plugin-s3-proxy

Getting Started

Before using awscli-plugin-s3-proxy plugin, you need to [configure awscli]( first.

**MUST**: Once that's done, to enable `awscli-plugin-s3-proxy` plugin, you can run:

$ aws configure set plugins.s3-proxy awscli_plugin_s3_proxy

The above command adds below section to your aws config file. You can also directly edit your `~/.aws/config` with below configuration.

s3-proxy = awscli_plugin_s3_proxy

To add proxy configure to a profile (assuming you have a **test** profile), you can run:

$ aws configure --profile test set s3.proxy

The above command adds below section to your profile:

[profile test]
s3 =
proxy =

Now you can access S3 using proxy with profile:

$ aws s3 ls --profile test

If You want to use profile without passing it every time as parameter, use environment variable, ex:

export AWS_PROFILE=test

Alternative (classic) method
You can follow the [guide by AWS]( which describes how to use proxy using system environment variables. Here is the example:

export http_proxy=
export https_proxy=
export HTTP_PROXY=

Remember that after setting these variables, `ALL` awscli requests will be going through proxy!

Additionally, if You are using awscli on EC2 host, add `NO_PROXY` variable to allow awscli communicate with metadata endpoint:
