How To Set Up Profiles To Manage AWS From The Command Line Using AWS CLI And PowerShell

With AWS, you can create multiple configurations for authentication. This is useful for people (like Bryce) who need to have a profile for internal work projects, a few profiles for client projects, and a profile for personal projects. Using the AWS CLI and PowerShell, we’ll show you how to create these profiles with built in commands like “aws configure” and “New-AWSCredential” to then call later in your scripts. You’ll also get to see how to call these profiles and look at them from the credential and config files on your local machine, as well as with the “Get-AWSCredential” PowerShell cmdlet.
