The 2nd time last month I had to do it myself / figure it out / explain it so I decided to note it down.

Install AWS CLI on your OSX

jvzoggel$ brew install awscli
jvzoggel$ echo 'complete -C aws_completer aws' >> ~/.bashrc

AWS Identity and Access Management

From the IAM console create your personal access key ID and secret access key. Make sure to note them both down in a safe place !

Configure the aws-cli

Use the generated AWS IAM credentials to configure your AWS CLI  for connection.

jvzoggel$ aws configure
 AWS Access Key ID [None]: xxxxxxxxx
 AWS Secret Access Key [None]: xxxxx
 Default region name [None]: eu-west-1
 Default output format [None]:

jvzoggel$ aws --version
 aws-cli/1.11.48 Python/2.7.10 Darwin/16.4.0 botocore/1.5.11
