An aws-adfs spinoff that fits BYU's needs
Python script for CLI and SDK access to AWS via ADFS while requiring MFA access using https://duo.com/
History and Purpose
BYU used to use the great aws-adfs CLI tool to login to our AWS accounts. It worked great, especially the DUO 2FA support. Eventually, we decided to write our own similar tool but make it BYU-specific so that we could tailor it to our needs (which basically means hard-code certain BYU-specific things) and remove some of the required parameters. Since this tool will be used by BYU employees only we had that option. We then morphed it a little more for our use cases. This isn’t something that you could use outside of BYU, sorry.
- Python 3.6 is recommended but it should work with Python 2.7. See the installation options page for step by step instructions for installing in various environments.
- See https://www.python.org/downloads/ for a windows installation method.
- In linux you may be able to use apt, rpm or https://www.python.org/downloads/.
- In Mac you can use homebrew, macports or https://www.python.org/downloads/.
- Run pip3 install byu_awslogin or pip install byu_awslogin as appropriate for your python installation
If you already have byu_awslogin install and are looking to upgrade simply run
pip3 install --upgrade byu_awslogin or pip install --upgrade byu_awslogin as appropriate for your python installation
awslogin defaults to the default profile in your ~/.aws/config and ~/.aws/credentials files. *If you already have a default profile you want to save in your ~/.aws files make sure to do that before running awslogin.*
Once you’re logged in, you can execute commands using the AWS CLI or AWS SDK. Try running aws s3 ls.
Currently, AWS temporary credentials are only valid for 1 hour. We cache your ADFS session, however, so you can just re-run awslogin again to get a new set of AWS credentials without logging in again to ADFS. Your ADFS login session is valid for 8 hours, after which time you’ll be required to login to ADFS again to obtain a new session.
To switch accounts after you’ve already authenticated to an account, just run awslogin again and select a new account/role combination.
To use it:
- Run awslogin and it will prompt you for the AWS account and role to use.
- Run awslogin --account <account name> --role <role name> to skip the prompting for account and name. You could specify just one of the arguments as well.
- Run awslogin --profile <profile name> to specifiy an alternative profile
- Run awslogin --region <region name> to specify a different region. The default region is us-west-2.
- Run awslogin --status for the current status of the default profile
- Run awslogin --status --profile dev for the current status of the dev profile
- Run awslogin --status --profile all for the current status of the all profiles
- Run awslogin --logout to logout of a cached ADFS session
- Run awslogin --version to display the running version of awslogin
- Run awslogin --help for full help message
