AWS Process Credential Providers


A collection of process-based credential providers to be used with the AWS CLI and related tools.


The easiest way to install is to use pip:

pip install awsprocesscreds


This package requires a version of python to be installed. Currently supported python versions are:

  • 2.7.9+
  • 3.3.x
  • 3.4.x
  • 3.5.x
  • 3.6.x

SAML Forms-Based Authentication

If you have a SAML identity provider, you can use awsprocesscreds-saml to configure programmatic access to your AWS resources. It has four required arguments:

  • -e / --endpoint - Your SAML idp endpoint.
  • -u / --username - Your SAML username.
  • -p / --provider - The name of your SAML provider. Currently okta and adfs are supported.
  • -a / --role-arn- The role arn you wish to assume. Your SAML provider must be configured to give you access to this arn.

This will cache your credentials by default, which will allow you to run multiple commands without having to enter your password each time. You can disable the cache by specifying --no-cache.

Additionally, you can show logs by specifying -v or --verbose.

To configure this provider, you need create a profile using the credential_process config variable. See the AWS CLI Config docs for more details on this config option.

Example okta configuration:

[profile okta]
region = us-west-2
credential_process = awsprocesscreds-saml -e https://example.okta.com/home/amazon_aws/blob/123 -u 'monty@example.com' -p okta -a arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/okta-dev

Example adfs configuration:

[profile adfs]
region = us-west-2
credential_process = awsprocesscreds-saml -e 'https://corp.example.com/adfs/ls/IdpInitiatedSignOn.aspx?loginToRp=urn:amazon:webservices' -u Monty -p adfs -a arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/ADFS-Dev
