Get attribute from workstation (as opposed to from the node)


#1

this might be a silly question, because I dont think it is possible but.

I was wondering if ebs_volume resource in aws cookbook could get the
access_key from a .aws folder on my workstation ? so I don’t have to give
the access key in the code?

Sounds like you should use IAM roles which that cookbook supports.
