    • CS Impact:
      Managing AWS with Puppet is often one of the first ideas(maybe not the best idea) new users have. The lack of documentation of this file for storing credentials can make it frustrating to use which can make an early experience with puppet frustrating.

      Description

      There was a feature added to the aws module in https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-aws/pull/246 which allows for a global credentials file named puppetlabs_aws_credentials.ini within Puppet's confdir. This is required if you're not using IAM roles and expect the puppet agent to be able to authenticate to AWS.

      Currently the README just talks about ~/.aws/credentials which does not work when the provider is running under puppet agent.
