Amazon Web Services Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) - Cheat Sheet

I have been standing up quite a bit of infrastructure in AWS lately using the AWS CLI.  Here are some commands that I found helpful in a cheat sheet format. I'll show you how to create resources, query resources for information and how to update resources. Hopefully this will get you started quickly. The cheat sheet covers the following topics:

  • Setting up your environment.
  • Working with Virtual Private Clouds (VPC).
  • Working with Identity and Access Management (IAM).
  • Working with Route53.
  • Working with Elastic Load Balancers (ELB).
  • Working with SSH.
  • Working with DHCP.
  • Working with Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
  • Utilizing queries to gather information.

You can preview the AWS CLI cheat sheet by clicking below (hover mouse over upper right corner):

You can test all these commands with Fedora images which can be launched here:

If you have any questions about any of the commands in particular, please drop a comment below and I'll try to help.  Much credit goes to Ryan Cook for frontloading a lot of this.
