AWS Profile Switcher

npm Build Status NPM Downloads GitHub issues XO code style Known Vulnerabilities

A simple command line utility that allows you to switch your default aws profile found at ~/.aws/credentials.

Let me know via GitHub if you notice any issues on a given OS. I'm open to any suggestions.

This package was formerly known as just aws-profile-switcher, but I lost the credentials for that account and am recovering them. I've been wanting to update this to be a scoped package for a while, so I'll use this opportunity to do so. Once npm can get my account recovered (hopefully) then I'll update the npm page with the deprecation. Sorry for the confusion.

JUST TO REITERATE, THE ORIGINAL aws-profile-switcher LIBRARY IS NO LONGER MAINTAINED AND THIS WILL BE THE NEW MAINTAINED PACKAGE

Install: npm install -g @devtanc/aws-profile-switcher

Usage: switcher <command> [options]


  Commands:

    list|ls               Lists available AWS profiles from [~/.aws/credentials]
    current|c             List the current default profile
    switch|sw [options]   Switches the default profile to a different, user-specified profile

  Global Options:

    -h, --help     output usage information
    -V, --version  output the version number

  Switch Command Options:

    -p, --profile  <optional>  The name of the profile to make the default profile
    -i, --index    <optional>  The index of the profile to make the default profile (from list command)

*The alias for the 'current' command was 'curr' previous to v1.0.0

Examples

Given the following ~/.aws/credentials file. (This is not a sequence of commands. Assume each is done in a separate environment on the file below)

[default]
aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_2_ID
aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_2_SECRET

[profile1]
aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_1_ID
aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_1_SECRET

[profile2]
aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_2_ID
aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_2_SECRET

[profile3]
aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_3_ID
aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_3_SECRET
Command: switcher ls

Output:
	> Available profiles:
	> 1: profile1
	> 2: profile2
	> 3: profile3

Changes to file: <none>
Command: switcher curr

Output:
	> Current profile: profile2

Changes to file: <none>
Command: switcher sw

Output:
	> 1: profile1
	> 2: profile2
	> 3: profile3
	> prompt: index:
Input: 3
Output: Switching default aws profile to profile3

Changes to file:
	  [default]
	- aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_2_ID
	- aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_2_SECRET
	  [default]
	+ aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_3_ID
	+ aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_3_SECRET
Command: switcher sw -p profile1

Output: Switching default aws profile to profile1

Changes to file:
	  [default]
	- aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_2_ID
	- aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_2_SECRET
	  [default]
	+ aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_1_ID
	+ aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_1_SECRET
Command: switcher sw -i 3

Output: Switching default aws profile to profile3

Changes to file:
	  [default]
	- aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_2_ID
	- aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_2_SECRET
	  [default]
	+ aws_access_key_id = PROFILE_3_ID
	+ aws_secret_access_key = PROFILE_3_SECRET

DISCLAIMER:

Yes, I'm aware of the built-in profile functionality that AWS CLI has. This little tool was written for many reasons:

  • Some AWS CLI wrappers don't have --profile as an option, so the export/set command is the only option
  • switcher sw is less characters and easier to remember than exports/set AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE=profile1 (although a bash alias/function could shorten the # of characters)
  • BUT switcher sw lists out the profiles so that you don't have to remember the names
  • AND more people know how to install an npm package than how to update their ~/.bash_profile file correctly, most likely
  • Changing a profile applies to all shell instances for as long as it is set
