Create Auto Scaling groups from the command line using Amazon CloudShell

In supported Amazon Web Services Regions, you can run Amazon CLI commands using Amazon CloudShell for a browser-based, pre-authenticated shell that launches directly from the Amazon Web Services Management Console. You can run Amazon CLI commands against services using your preferred shell (Bash, PowerShell, or Z shell).

You can launch Amazon CloudShell from the Amazon Web Services Management Console using either one of the following two methods:

  • Choose the Amazon CloudShell icon on the console navigation bar. It's located to the right of the search box.

  • Use the search box on the console navigation bar to search for CloudShell and then choose the CloudShell option.

When Amazon CloudShell launches in a new browser window for the first time, a welcome panel displays and lists key features. After you close this panel, status updates are provided while the shell configures and forwards your console credentials. When the command prompt displays, the shell is ready for interaction.

For more information on this service, see the Amazon CloudShell User Guide.
