AWS auth v4 plugin for HTTPie.

Project description

AWS / Amazon Signature v4 Signing Process authentication plugin for HTTPie.

Installation

$ pip install --upgrade httpie-aws-authv4

You should now see aws4 under --auth-type / -A in $ http --help output.

Usage

Credentials in default profile/environment variables/instance profile

This authentication plugin looks for credentials in the same precedence that the AWS CLI tool does. At the moment, the plugin only looks at the default profile for credentials stored in credentials file.

$ http --auth-type aws4 https://asdf123a9sas.execute-api.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/dev/test

Specify credentials on the CLI

$ http --auth-type aws4 --auth ACCESSKEYXXX:AWSSECRETKEYXXX https://asdf123a9sas.execute-api.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/dev/test

Specify the endpoint

If for some reason you are not hitting the AWS endpoint directly (common with API Gateway), you will need to specify the AWS provided endpoint on the CLI. This is used to determine the service and region values required for the signature process.

$ http --auth-type aws4 --auth asdf123a9sas.execute-api.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com https://api.awesomeservice.net/dev/test

Specify credentials and endpoint

$ http --auth-type aws4 --auth ACCESSKEYXXX:AWSSECRETKEYXXX:asdf123a9sas.execute-api.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com https://api.awesomeservice.net/dev/test

Credits

All of the heavy lifting (the signing process) is handled by aws-requests-auth
