AWS Console Services – Alfred Workflow

build

A powerful workflow for quickly opening up AWS Console Services in your browser or searching for entities within them.

Supports Alfred 3 and 4

AWS Console Services - Alfred Workflow Demo

Installation

  • Download and extract the latest release
  • Open the .alfredworkflow file in Finder
  • Make sure your AWS Credentials and Region are set in your
    ~/.aws/credentials
    and
    ~/.aws/config
    files, respectively. This workflow will use your
    default
    profile by default within these files. See the official AWS docs for more info on how to configure these

Usage

To use, activate Alfred and type

aws
to trigger this workflow. From there:
  • type any search term to search for services
  • if the current service result has a 🗂 in the subtitle, press Tab to autocomplete into sub-services (for example, navigate to "Security Groups" within the "EC2" service)
  • keep typing after autocompleting to filter sub-services
  • if the current sub-service result has a 🔎 in the subtitle, press Tab again to start searching for its entities (for example, you can search for EC2 Instances when tabbed to
    aws ec2 instances
    )

At any time: - press Enter to open the current result in your default browser - press +Enter to copy the result's URL to clipboard.

Note that you must be logged in for the page to open directly to your service. See this config file for the full list of supported services and their sub-services and this file for the list of supported searchers.

Advanced Features

  • Fuzzy filtering a la Sublime Text is supported
  • Configurable workflow environment variables
    • Search alias – If a sub-service has a ⭐ in the subtitle, you can use
      ,
      as an alias for it to more quickly search for that entity. For example, in this workflow, the EC2 service's default entity is an EC2 instance, so
      aws ec2 ,searchterm
      is a shorter alias for
      aws ec2 instances searchterm
      . You can customize this alias by setting the
      ALFRED_AWS_CONSOLE_SERVICES_WORKFLOW_SEARCH_ALIAS
      environment variable to any other string.
    • Region override - By default, searchers will use the region configured in your
      ~/.aws/config
      file. However, you can override this on a single query basis by typing
      $
      . This workflow will then populate a list of regions to select for this query. You can customize this alias by setting the
      ALFRED_AWS_CONSOLE_SERVICES_OVERRIDE_AWS_REGION_ALIAS
      environment variable to any other string.
    • Profile override - By default, searchers will use the default profile configured in your
      ~/.aws/credentials
      file. However, you can override this on a single query basis by typing
      @
      . This workflow will then populate the list of profiles defined in your
      ~/.aws/credentials
      file. You can customize this alias by setting the
      ALFRED_AWS_CONSOLE_SERVICES_OVERRIDE_AWS_PROFILE_ALIAS
      environment variable to any other string.
    • Cache expiration age – Sub-service entity searching makes heavy use of caching to make filtering performant and to prevent handling big requests/responses to/from AWS on every execution. The cache expiration age for each entity is set to 3 minutes by default. If you find that this is too short/long for your usage, you can set the
      ALFRED_AWS_CONSOLE_SERVICES_WORKFLOW_MAX_CACHE_AGE_SECONDS
      environment variable to the number of seconds that better suits your need.
    • Custom AWS Management Console domain – If your AWS account's management console lives at a domain that is not the standard "console.amazonaws.com", you can set a custom domain with the
      ALFRED_AWS_CONSOLE_SERVICES_WORKFLOW_AWS_CONSOLE_DOMAIN
      environment variable. This workflow will then populate all relevant URLs with that domain when opening links.
    • AWS settings – You can override any/all AWS configuration values which the underlying AWS library should respect.
