AWS Powershell Module

To use AWS powershell you will need to download and install the module form AWS. The link and install instructions are below.

Once the module is installed you should be able to run Powershell as administrator and configure your powershell as below:

Set AWS Credential Profile

Set-AWSCredentials -AccessKey {AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE} -SecretKey {wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY} -StoreAs {ProfileName}
Initialize-AWSDefaults -ProfileName {ProfileName} -Region {eu-west-1}

Without specifying a default Region in the profile setup you will be required to use -Region command on the end of every cmdlet you run.

You should now be good to run AWS Powershell
