AWS Elastic Beanstalk Temporary Credentials

Does the Elastic Beanstalk Step Template support the use of a profile for temporary credentials. When trying to do this I get the following error:

Hi stellerm, thanks for reaching out.

I believe this is something you would have to ask the community step author as we don’t officially support these. The step is open source so you are more than welcome to have a look at the step here as well.

The step does seem to suggest that a profile can be used, but one thing to keep in mind is that the community steps are usually script steps, so you could copy the Powershell and change it as needed. In this case, though, it does seem like the profile could not be found for the associated account wherever the step is executing whether that be tentacle or server.

Thanks for getting back to me Shaun. Yeah, I ended up copying the script and made my own custom step template that just required a Profile Name. The error was happening because on a previous deployment step - when I created the profile - it was stored under a different user (system) and when the actual AWS deploy step ran it was running under our service account. So, it couldn’t find the profile based on current user. Cheers!!!

No problem at all. I am glad to hear you managed to get it working.

Let us know if there is anything else we can help with! :slight_smile:
