Why awless

awless stands out by having the following characteristics:

  • small and hierarchical set of commands
  • a simple/powerful text templating language to create and revert fully-fledged infrastructures
  • wrapping/composing AWS API calls when necessary to enrich behaviour. Ex: ensure smart defaults, security best practices, etc.
  • local log of all your cloud modifications done through awless to list/revert past actions
  • sync to a local graph storage of your cloud representation
  • exploration of your cloud infrastructure and resources interrelations, even offline using the local graph storage
  • clearer and flexible terminal output's with: numerous formats (machine/human friendly), enriched resources's properties/relations when feasible
  • connect easily using awless' smart SSH to your private & public instances

For more read our FAQ below (how awless compares to other tools, etc.)


Choose one of the following options:

  1. On macOS, use homebrew: brew tap wallix/awless; brew install awless
  2. With curl (macOS/Linux), run: curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wallix/awless/master/getawless.sh | bash
  3. Download the latest awless binaries (Windows/Linux/macOS) from Github
  4. If you have Golang already installed, install from the source with: go get -u github.com/wallix/awless

If you have previously used the AWS CLI or aws-shell, you don't need to configure anything! Your config will be automatically loaded (i.e. ~/.aws/{credentials,config}) and awless will prompt for any missing info (more at our getting started).

Main features

Note that the video above is in APNG and requires a recent browser.

  • Aliasing of resources through their natural name so you don't have to always use cryptic ids that are impossible to remember

  • awless show : Explore the properties, relations, dependencies of a specific resource (even offline thanks to the sync) given only a name (or id/arn).

    $ awless show jsmith --local
  • awless list : Clear and easy listing of multi-region cloud resources (subnets, instances, users, buckets, records, etc.) on AWS EC2, IAM, S3, RDS, AutoScaling, SNS, SQS, Route53, CloudWatch, CloudFormation, Lambda, etc. Listing filters via resources properties or resources tags.

    $ awless list instances --sort uptime --local
    $ awless list users --format csv --columns name,created
    $ awless list volumes --filter state=use --filter type=gp2
    $ awless list volumes --tag-value Purchased
    $ awless ls vpcs --tag-key Dept --tag-key Internal --format tsv
    $ awless ls instances --tag Env=Production,Dept=Marketing
    $ awless ls instances --filter state=running,type=micro --format json
    $ awless ls s3objects --filter bucket=pdf-bucket -r us-west-2
    $ ...
    (see awless ls -h)
  • awless run : Create, update and delete complex infrastructures with smart defaults and sound auto-complete through awless templates.

    $ awless run ~/templates/my-infra.aws
    $ awless run https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wallix/awless-templates/master/linux_bastion.aws
  • Hundreds of powerful CRUD CLI one-liners integrated in the awless templating engine:

    $ awless create instance -h
    $ awless create vpc -h
    $ awless attach policy -h
    $ ...
    (see awless -h)
  • awless log : Detailled and easy reporting of all the CLI template executions

  • awless revert : Revert of executed templates and resources creation

  • Create instances straight from a distro name. No need to know the region or AMI ;) (free tier community bare distro only, see awless create instance -h)

    $ awless create instance distro=debian
    $ awless create instance distro=coreos
    $ awless create instance distro=redhat::7.2 type=t2.micro
    $ awless create instance distro=debian:debian:jessie lock=true
    $ awless create instance distro=amazonlinux:amzn2
  • Leveraging AWS userdata to provision instance on creation from remote (i.e http) or local scripts: awless create instance ... userdata=/home/john/...

  • awless ssh : Clean and simple SSH to public & private instances using only a name

    $ awless ssh my-production-instance
    $ awless ssh redis-prod --through jump-server
    $ awless ssh
    $ awless ssh db-private --private
    $ awless ssh --port 2222 --through my-proxy --through-port 23
    $ ...
    (see awless ssh -h)
  • awless switch : Switch easily between AWS accounts (i.e. profile) and regions

    $ awless switch admin eu-west-2
    $ awless switch us-west-1
    $ awless switch mfa
  • awless transparently syncs cloud resources locally to a graph representation in order for the CLI to leverage data and their relations in other awless commands and in an offline manner (more on the sync)

  • awless sync : Explicit and manual command to fetch & store resources locally. Then query & inspect your cloud offline

  • Output listing formats either human (default display is Markdown-compatible tables) or machine readable (csv, tsv, json, ...): --format

  • awless inspect : Leverage experimental and community inspectors which are interface implementation utilities to run analysis on your cloud resources graphs

    $ awless inspect -i bucket_sizer
    (see awless inspect -h)
  • awless completion : CLI autocompletion for Unix/Linux's bash and zsh

Here is a compilation of the question we often answer (thanks for asking them so that we can make things clearer!):

There are already some AWS CLIs. What is awless unique approach?

Three things that differentiates awless from other AWS CLIs:

  • It has its own compiled and very simple templating language to build AWS infrastructures.
  • Commands are made of VERB + ENTITY [+ param=value] and are actually valid lines of the template language.
  • It transparently syncs to a local graph a representation of the cloud resources and their relations.

Leveraging and combining the points above, awless lays some strong foundations for plenty of current/future features/characteristic such as:

  • Wrapping AWS API calls to enrich them with before/after behaviour when interacting with the cloud
  • Having a small and hierarchical set of commands to intuitively interact with AWS
  • Enriching listing of resources using the local model and relations that are not calculated with other CLIs
  • Referencing and finding resources quickly avoiding cryptic IDs in favor of names, etc.
  • Exposing in the terminal relation between resources: lineage, siblings, etc.
  • Performing local analysis of your cloud
  • Having a smart SSH to easily connect to instances
  • etc.

How do you create infrastructure with awless?

You build infrastructure using template files or command one-liners that get compiled and run through awless builtin engine. See what the templating language looks like. Learn more about the way templates work

Note that all your actions against the cloud are logged. Templates are revertible/rollbackable.

How does awless compares to aws-shell or saws?

(Points above should also help answering this question)

aws-shell and saws are directly mapped to the official AWS CLI. Their only objective is to make you productive and help you manage exhaustively the sheer number of AWS services, options, etc.

awless addresses this UI/productivity concern differently: small and hierarchical set of commands; favoring enriched listing with relations showing over AWS exhaustive outputting of properties; more useful human/machine formats.

The main point is that the UI/productivity concern is just a feature of awless and not its primary or only one, so there is much more to the tool.

Also aws-shell and saws are exhaustive in their support of AWS services. awless is so far more infrastructure centric, with an emphasis on enriching the information about your real infrastructure. awless is able to add any new AWS service quickly if that fits and make sense (see wiki on how to add a new AWS service).

How does awless compares to Terraform?

Terraform is a great product! awless is much younger than Terraform and Terraform is much broader in scope.

The approach is different though. When creating insfrastructure awless:

  • favors simplicity with a straight forward, compiled and simple deployment language
  • employs an all-or-nothing deployment: do not keep state, etc.
  • awless does provide a rollback on any ran template.

Does awless handles state when creating infrastructure (i.e. keep track of the changes)?

Quoting from a logz.io/blog entry: "Terraform is an amazing tool but a major challenge is managing the state file. Whenever you apply changes to your infrastructure, the entire managed body of code and created objects are tracked in the Terraform State file (.tfstate), which can reach hundreds of thousands of lines and must be managed carefully lest you incur large merge conflicts or unwanted resource changes", Ofer Velich.

As for now with awless, we have taken a different path: awless does not keep state of your cloud; it is more of an all-or-nothing deployment solution.

Note that awless logs (through rich and revertable logs) all your actions against the cloud and that you can revert any template ran.

  • Support ssh agent

    Support ssh agent

    Thanks for building such a useful tool.

    One thing that was missing was the ability to use SSH agent authorization instead of private keys.

    This is my attempt to add that functionality. Basically, if there is no key on an instance it will try to use the SSH_AUTH_SOCK variable to communicate with an agent. If there is a key on an instance, it will use that key as before. And, finally, if the --agent flag is passed, the agent will be used without looking for a key.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Pass CloudFormation tags/parameters from file

    In order to use awless as part of CI job for deployment CloudFormation, would be very nice to be able to apply parameters from the file.

    AWS has this kind of file for deployment with CodePipeline: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/continuous-delivery-codepipeline-cfn-artifacts.html#w2ab2c13c15c15. Would be very nice to be able to support the same file format.

    Add support for Classic ELB

    Please add support for classic ELB (ELBv1).

    One of the superior features of awless is that it provides a dependency graph of entities - and though the Application ELB (ELBv2) is the most recent offering by AWS, there are going to be a huge number of extant Classic ELB's running out there - and having a good idea of their dependencies will provide an excellent utility when trying to upgrade them.

    Furthermore, even today most tools provision Classic ELBs when managing AWS for you - for instance, current Kubernetes tooling creates ELBv1 entities.

  • v0.1.9(Jan 16, 2018)


    In this release, the local data model has been updated to support multi-account and stale data is removed when upgrading. Local data (ex: used for completion, etc...) will progressively be synced again through your usage of awless. Although, to get all your data now under the new model, you can manually run 'awless sync'


    • Support and seamless sync across multi-account (i.e. multiple profiles) and regions
    • Enriched params prompting with optional/skippable but very common params. Can be disabled with --prompt-only-required or forced with --prompt-all to leverage smart completion for all params
    • Automatically complete the username when deleting an access key by its ID, if it is contained in the local graph model:
      • awless delete accesskey id=ACCESSKEYID
    • For awless update stack param stackfile can now slurp yml and json params files. Thanks to @Trane9991 (#167, #145)
    • Better completion for template parameters independently of their display name
    • Aliases can now be resolved to properties other than IDs. For example, they are resolved to ARN in attach/detach/update/delete policy: awless attach policy [email protected]
    • Running only awless switch now returns your current region and profile, allowing a quick and short region/profile lookup
    • Better completion of slice properties

    • ssh: better handle when several instances have the same name (e.g., with a running and a terminated instance)
    • ssh: more warning; provide help and context on failing connections
    • Manage properly security groups on instances with awless attach/detach secgroup id=... [email protected]
    • Logging more info when running templates


    • awless whoami now supports displaying info for root user and user with org path
    • Use securitygroup rather than group in templates, when appropriate.
    • Use keypair rather than key in templates, when appropriate.
    • Fix the fact you could not attach multiple security groups to an instance
    • Reverting the creation of a load balancer now waits the deletion of its network interfaces
