The hands-on lab is part of these learning paths
Ready for the real environment experience?
The AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) is a unified tool to manage your AWS services. With just one tool to download and configure, you can control multiple AWS services from the command line and automate them through scripts.
During this Lab, you will learn how to configure the AWS CLI, leverage the built-in help tool, and set up an S3 website using the AWS CLI.
This is a beginner level Lab. However, in order to complete the Lab Steps you should be able to:
- Use Linux at the command-line
- Describe the basic features of the IAM service
- Explain the basics of S3 including buckets, objects, and access control lists (ACLs)
Consider the following Labs as prerequisites:
By the end of this Lab, you should be able to:
- Configure the AWS CLI
- Use the AWS CLI help to get more information
- Create an S3 bucket with the AWS CLI
- Send files from your local machine to S3 buckets using the AWS CLI
- Configure static website hosting on Amazon S3 using the AWS CLI
