Optional but helpful tools

Christophe April 1, 2024

Before we get started, I want to share tools that can make your life easier when it comes to assuming roles. I won’t be using these in this course because I don’t want to force you to use a tool if you’re not interested. What we’re going to do in this course can be purely done using native AWS tools. These 3rd party tools are completely optional:

All of these tools will help you achieve similar objectives, it just comes down to personal preference.

As a general rule of thumb, I’d recommend aws-sso-cli for when you are using Identity Center pretty much exclusively.

I’d recommend aws-vault if you still also use IAM users and long-term access keys for some use cases.

I’d recommend Granted when you are running multi-account setups.

Give them all a shot and see which you prefer!
