Using aws-cli with Safespring S3¶
Most package managers will have a package for aws-cli, but if not the Amazon guide at:
should help you get it installed.
Setting up credentials¶
aws-cli will accept credentials in many ways, including environment variables, but you can also use the short interactive configurator:
$ aws configure AWS Access Key ID [None]: <your access key> AWS Secret Access Key [None]: <your secret key> Default region name [None]: Default output format [None]: json
Our systems will accept us-east-1 for region, mostly because some clients default to it. It doesn't really matter for aws-cli so you can leave it blank. As for choosing json output, that is just a nice way of presenting data and not strictly required for normal operations of aws-cli.
Now that the credentials are saved, one can list buckets,
aws --endpoint https://s3.sto2.safedc.net s3api list-buckets
Do note the subcommand "s3api" there. You can upload one or more files with
aws --endpoint https://s3.sto2.safedc.net s3 cp DATETIME.txt s3://jj_demo
and list contents in a bucket:
$ aws --endpoint https://s3.sto2.safedc.net s3 ls jj_demo 2021-05-27 15:34:49 30 DATETIME.txt
So most of the setup commands use s3api subcommand, and operations later on use the s3 subcommand.
