AWS CLI Cheatsheet


Useful commands to use with the AWS CLI

AWS CLI Cheatsheet

There are a few useful commands that I find I often need. Usually these are combinations of commands with a query. Many of these queries rely on complex JMES Path expressions, which I have to google every time. So I thought it would be helpful to organize these in a repository to share with the AWS community. This is a living document that will be updated as I find more useful commands and/or tricks with the CLI. If you have any additional ones to share, please contribute, I would be glad to add more.
