What is the AWS CLI?

Package details. Package: aws-cli: Version: 1.19.105-r0: Description: Universal Command Line Interface for Amazon Web Services. As of 2/1/2021 Python 3.4 and 3.5 is deprecated. Python 2.7 was deprecated by the Python Software Foundation on January 1, 2020. Going forward, customers using the AWS CLI version 1 should transition to using Python 3, with a minimum of Python 3.6. 참고로 Alpine Linux는 apk (Alpine Linux package manager)라는 독자적인 패키지 관리 툴을 사용한다. Docker와 AWS CLI는 아래 명령어로 설치하면 된다. Apk -no-cache update apk -no-cache add python3 docker pip3 -no-cache-dir install awscli docker -version aws -version.

The AWS CLI is the integration point between your environment and AWS at the Command Line. CLI (Comman Line Interface) is the power tool for users trying to manage their AWS instance using a terminal session.

If you have been using AWS for a while, you know that AWS is highly point-and-click and with a tremendous amount of configuration using the browser. Power users and system level interfacing need something more robust and easily interactable to scripting tools and the like.

I want to show you how to set this up because its a super powerful tool and integrates great with Visual Studio and PyCharm.

Side note: I had to set this up because my other blog post required me to use it and I couldn’t get that post working without it!!

Downloading the CLI

Aws Cli Alpine

Here is the link to get the CLI 2 from the AWS website CLI 1 is an older version and supports an earlier version of Python. CLI 2 supports the newer Python libraries.


For those of you who are very proficient with the command line, you can download the binaries using the following set of CURL commands. AWS has 2 versions: CLI 1 and CLI 2.

The AWS website is updated frequently and very descriptive but for your needs you can run the following commands.


Important: (From the AWS CLI website) AWS CLI version 1 no longer supports Python versions 2.6 and 3.3. All versions of the AWS CLI version 1 released after January 10th, 2020, starting with 1.17, require Python 2.7, Python 3.4, or a later version.

This change does not affect the following versions of the AWS CLI:

  • Windows MSI installer version of AWS CLI version 1
  • AWS CLI version 2


Download the AWS CLI MSI installer for Windows (64-bit) at

To update your current installation of AWS CLI version 2 on Windows, download a new installer each time you update to overwrite previous versions. AWS CLI is updated regularly, so check the Releases page on GitHub to see when the latest version was released.

Configuration of CLI

This is the part that is critical. When you sign up on AWS you get a series of keys and credentials that have to be stored on your local directory or user directory so that the CLI can utilize it.

On your AWS instance, go to your Security Credentials from the drop down. This a sample of mine. You can download the keys and then store it on a file called CREDENTIALS.



You can alternatively have AWS create the configuration file for you using the AWS CLI. To do this you do the following:

Aws Sdk

The AWS access key ID is made up of 20 random uppercase alphanumeric characters.

The AWS secret access key is made up of 40 random upper and lowercase alphanumeric and non-alphanumeric characters.

These access keys can be created for any IAM user who requires authentication from a programmatic perspective, such as when using the AWS CLI.

That should be basics for you to get rolling. The AWS documentation is highly descriptive and extensive. For a full description of all the settings you can refer to the AWS documentation here:

Happy Coding!
