AWS Credentials from AWS Config or Crendential file


You may use this storage type if you would like to load Amazon S3 credentials and session tokens from AWS Config or Crendential file.

AWS Credentials File

AWS Credentials file is usually stored in %USERPROFILE%\.aws\credentials and has the following format:


[default]
 aws_access_key_id=ACCESS_KEY
 aws_secret_access_key=SECRET_KEY
 aws_session_token=TOKEN

The file may contain multiple profiles:


[default]
 aws_access_key_id = ACCESS_KEY
 aws_secret_access_key = SECRET_KEY
 aws_session_token = TOKEN
 
[Alice]
 aws_access_key_id = Alice_access_key_ID
 aws_secret_access_key = Alice_secret_access_key
 
[Bob]
 aws_access_key_id = Bob_access_key_ID
 aws_secret_access_key = Bob_secret_access_key

You may specify the profile name when configuring mapped drive credentials.

AWS Config File

AWS Config file is usually stored in %USERPROFILE%\.aws\config and has the following format:


[default]
 aws_access_key_id = ACCESS_KEY
 aws_secret_access_key = SECRET_KEY
 aws_session_token = TOKEN
 
[profile Alice]
 aws_access_key_id = Alice_access_key_ID
 aws_secret_access_key = Alice_secret_access_key
 
[profile Bob]
 aws_access_key_id = Bob_access_key_ID
 aws_secret_access_key = Bob_secret_access_key

As you may note it has the same format as the credentials file except the profile sections. Profile sections must have the format of [profile profile-name], except for the default profile.

The following variables are supported in both AWS Credentials File and AWS Config File:

  • aws_access_key_id – AWS access key.
  • aws_secret_access_key – AWS secret key.
  • aws_session_token – AWS session token. A session token is only required if you are using temporary security credentials.
