Use endpoints in the AWS CLI - AWS Command Line Interface

Use endpoints in the AWS CLI

To connect programmatically to an AWS service, you use an endpoint. An endpoint is the URL of the entry point for an AWS web service. The AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) automatically uses the default endpoint for each service in an AWS Region, but you can specify an alternate endpoint for your API requests.

Set endpoint for a single command

To override any endpoint settings or environment variables for a single command, use the --endpoint-url command line option. The following command example uses a custom Amazon S3 endpoint URL.

$ aws s3 ls --endpoint-url http://localhost:4567

Set global endpoint for all AWS services

To route requests for all services to a custom endpoint URL, use one of the following settings:

  • Environment variables:

    • AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS - Ignore configured endpoint URLs.

      Linux or macOS
      $ export AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS=true
      Windows Command Prompt

      To set for all sessions

      C:\> setx AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS true

      To set for current session only

      C:\> set AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS=true
      PowerShell
      PS C:\> $Env:AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS="true"
    • AWS_ENDPOINT_URL - Set global endpoint URL.

      Linux or macOS
      $ export AWS_ENDPOINT_URL=http://localhost:4567
      Windows Command Prompt

      To set for all sessions

      C:\> setx AWS_ENDPOINT_URL http://localhost:4567

      To set for current session only

      C:\> set AWS_ENDPOINT_URL=http://localhost:4567
      PowerShell
      PS C:\> $Env:AWS_ENDPOINT_URL="http://localhost:4567"
  • The config file:

Service-specific endpoints and the --endpoint-url command line option override any global endpoints.

Set to use FIPs endpoints for all AWS services

To route requests for all services to use FIPs endpoints, use one of the following:

  • AWS_USE_FIPS_ENDPOINT environment variable.

    Linux or macOS
    $ export AWS_USE_FIPS_ENDPOINT=true
    Windows Command Prompt

    To set for all sessions

    C:\> setx AWS_USE_FIPS_ENDPOINT true

    To set for current session only

    C:\> set AWS_USE_FIPS_ENDPOINT=true
    PowerShell
    PS C:\> $Env:AWS_USE_FIPS_ENDPOINT="true"
  • use_fips_endpoint file setting.

    use_fips_endpoint = true

Some AWS services offer endpoints that support Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 in some AWS Regions. When the AWS service supports FIPS, this setting specifies what FIPS endpoint the AWS CLI should use . Unlike standard AWS endpoints, FIPS endpoints use a TLS software library that complies with FIPS 140-2. These endpoints might be required by enterprises that interact with the United States government.

If this setting is enabled, but a FIPS endpoint does not exist for the service in your AWS Region, the AWS command may fail. In this case, manually specify the endpoint to use in the command using the --endpoint-url option or use service-specific endpoints.

For more information on specifying FIPS endpoints by AWS Region, see FIPS Endpoints by Service.

Set to use dual-stack endpoints for all AWS services

To route requests for all services to use dual-stack endpoints when available, use one of the following settings:

  • AWS_USE_DUALSTACK_ENDPOINT environment variable.

    Linux or macOS
    $ export AWS_USE_DUALSTACK_ENDPOINT=true
    Windows Command Prompt

    To set for all sessions

    C:\> setx AWS_USE_DUALSTACK_ENDPOINT true

    To set for current session only

    C:\> set AWS_USE_DUALSTACK_ENDPOINT=true
    PowerShell
    PS C:\> $Env:AWS_USE_DUALSTACK_ENDPOINT="true"
  • use_dualstack_endpoint file setting.

    use_dualstack_endpoint = true

Enables the use of dual-stack endpoints to send AWS requests. To learn more about dual-stack endpoints, which support both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic, see Using Amazon S3 dual-stack endpoints in the Amazon Simple Storage Service User Guide. Dual-stack endpoints are available for some services in some regions. If a dual-stack endpoint does not exist for the service or AWS Region, the request fails. This is disabled by default.

Set service-specific endpoints

Service-specific endpoint configuration provides the option to use a persistent endpoint of your choosing for AWS CLI requests. These settings provide flexibility to support local endpoints, VPC endpoints, and third-party local AWS development environments. Different endpoints can be used for testing and production environments. You can specify an endpoint URL for individual AWS services.

Service-specific endpoints can be specified in the following ways:

Service-specific endpoints: Environment variables

Environment variables override settings in your config file, but do not override options specified on the command line. Use environment variables if you want all profiles to use the same endpoints on your device.

The following are service-specific environment variables:

  • AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS - Ignore all configured endpoint URLs, unless specified on the command line.

    Linux or macOS
    $ export AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS=true
    Windows Command Prompt

    To set for all sessions

    C:\> setx AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS true

    To set for current session only

    C:\> set AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS=true
    PowerShell
    PS C:\> $Env:AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS="true"
  • AWS_ENDPOINT_URL_<SERVICE> - Specifies a custom endpoint that is used for a specific service, where <SERVICE> is replaced with the AWS service identifier. For all service-specific variables, see Service-specific endpoints: List of service-specific identifiers.

    The following environment variable examples sets an endpoint for AWS Elastic Beanstalk:

    Linux or macOS
    $ export AWS_ENDPOINT_URL_ELASTIC_BEANSTALK=http://localhost:4567
    Windows Command Prompt

    To set for all sessions

    C:\> setx AWS_ENDPOINT_URL_ELASTIC_BEANSTALK http://localhost:4567

    To set for current session only

    C:\> set AWS_ENDPOINT_URL_ELASTIC_BEANSTALK=http://localhost:4567
    PowerShell
    PS C:\> $Env:AWS_ENDPOINT_URL_ELASTIC_BEANSTALK="http://localhost:4567"

For more information on setting environment variables, see Environment variables to configure the AWS CLI.

Service-specific endpoints: Shared config file

In the shared config file, endpoint_url is used in multiple sections. To set a service-specific endpoint, use the endpoint_url setting nested under a service identifier key within a services section. For details on defining a services section in your shared config file, see Section type: services.

The following example uses a services section to configure a service-specific endpoint URL for Amazon S3 and a custom global endpoint used for all other services:

[profile dev1] endpoint_url = http://localhost:1234 services = s3-specific [services testing-s3] s3 = endpoint_url = http://localhost:4567

A single profile can configure endpoints for multiple services. The following example sets the service-specific endpoint URLs for Amazon S3 and AWS Elastic Beanstalk in the same profile.

For a list of all service identifier keys to use in the services section, see List of service-specific identifiers.

[profile dev1] services = testing-s3-and-eb [services testing-s3-and-eb] s3 = endpoint_url = http://localhost:4567 elastic_beanstalk = endpoint_url = http://localhost:8000

The service configuration section can be used in multiple profiles. The following example has two profiles use the same services definition:

[profile dev1] output = json services = testing-s3 [profile dev2] output = text services = testing-s3 [services testing-s3] s3 = endpoint_url = https://localhost:4567

Service-specific endpoints: List of service-specific identifiers

The AWS service identifier is based on the API model’s serviceId by replacing all spaces with underscores and lowercasing all letters.

The following service identifier example uses AWS Elastic Beanstalk. AWS Elastic Beanstalk has a serviceId of Elastic Beanstalk, therefore the service identifier key is elastic_beanstalk.

The following table lists all service-specific identifiers, config file keys, and environment variables.

Endpoint configuration and settings precedence

Endpoint configuration settings are located in multiple places, such as the system or user environment variables, local AWS configuration files, or explicitly declared on the command line as a parameter. The AWS CLI endpoint configuration settings take precedence in the following order:

  1. The --endpoint-url command line option.

  2. If enabled, the AWS_IGNORE_CONFIGURED_ENDPOINT_URLS global endpoint environment variable or profile setting ignore_configure_endpoint_urls to ignore custom endpoints.

  3. The value provided by a service-specific environment variable AWS_ENDPOINT_URL_<SERVICE>, such as AWS_ENDPOINT_URL_DYNAMODB.

  4. The values provided by the AWS_USE_DUALSTACK_ENDPOINT, AWS_USE_FIPS_ENDPOINT, and AWS_ENDPOINT_URL environment variables.

  5. The service-specific endpoint value provided by the endpoint_url setting within a services section of the shared config file.

  6. The value provided by the endpoint_url setting within a profile of the shared config file.

  7. use_dualstack_endpoint, use_fips_endpoint, and endpoint_url settings.

  8. Any default endpoint URL for the respective AWS service is used last. For a list of the standard service endpoints available in each Region, see AWS Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services General Reference.
