How to Configure AWS Credentials and Region in Spring Cloud AWS
April 30, 2021
When using Spring Cloud AWS, getting the AWS credentials and region configuration properties right can be tricky.
The preferred option is to use the AWS Default Credential Provider Chain and Default Region Provider Chain which results in the required properties being sourced just like the AWS SDK does by default.
cloud: aws: stack: auto: false region: auto: true use-default-aws-region-chain: true credentials: use-default-aws-credentials-chain: true
Alternatively, you can manually configure the required properties directly in your application properties like this:
cloud: aws: stack: auto: false region: auto: false static: <region-here> credentials: access-key: <access-key-here> secret-key: <secret-key-here>
