[ aws . configure ]



List the AWS CLI configuration data. This command will show you the current configuration data. For each configuration item, it will show you the value, where the configuration value was retrieved, and the configuration variable name. For example, if you provide the AWS region in an environment variable, this command will show you the name of the region you've configured, it will tell you that this value came from an environment variable, and it will tell you the name of the environment variable.


aws configure list [--profile profile-name]




To show your current configuration values:

$ aws configure list
      Name                    Value             Type    Location
      ----                    -----             ----    --------
   profile                <not set>             None    None
