AWS Vault is an open-source tool to securely store and access AWS credentials in a development environment.

It stores your IAM credentials securely and provides only temporary credentials on-demand when needed.

AWS Vault integrates with Dynobase seamlessly, here's how:

  1. Make sure you have AWS Vault installed. If not, head to installation guide.
  2. Make sure you have at least one profile setup.
  3. Go to ~/.aws/config file and add a new AWS Vault-powered profile with credential_process attribute pointing to AWS Vault binary to this file, for example:

Make sure that credential_process includes the absolute path to the aws-vault binary. Replace default with your actual profile name.

  1. Launch Dynobase and select your newly created profile. You should be prompted to provide a password.
  2. If you did everything correctly, Dynobase should authenticate using temporary credentials provided by AWS Vault.
