Want to set up the AWS CLI to work with DynamoDB Table on EC2? We can help you.
Here, at Bobcares, we assist our customers with several AWS queries as part of our AWS Support Services.
Today, let us see how our Support Techs set up AWS CLI for our customers.
Set up the AWS CLI to work with DynamoDB Table on EC2
Moving ahead, let us see the methods our Support Techs employ in order to perform this query.
Create an AWS IAM role
- We select the AWS service for the type of trusted entity and then select EC2.
- Then for Attach permissions policies, we select AmazonDynamoDBFullAccess.
Attach the IAM role to an EC2 instance
- Initially, we launch an EC2 instance via Amazon Linux AMI.
- On the Configure Instance Details page, in the IAM role drop-down list, we select the IAM role.
- In addition, we make sure the subnet we select is accessible from the internet.
- On the Configure Security Group page, we select a security group that allows SSH access from the IP address.
Connect to the instance via SSH
- First, we connect to the Linux instance via SSH.
- Once done, to make sure the software packages on the instance are up to date we run the yum update command.
Configure the AWS CLI
- To configure, we run the AWS configure command.
- In the prompt for an AWS Access Key ID and AWS Secret Access Key, we press Enter. Since we have an instance IAM role to connect with an AWS service, we don’t have to provide keys.
- In the Default region name prompt, we enter the Region of the DynamoDB tables.
- After that for the default output format prompt, we press Enter.
- Finally, we run the list-tables command to confirm that we can run DynamoDB commands on the AWS CLI.
