Connecting to AWS credentials


Hello! Quick question. In order to connect to an AWS SDK, you must put your user credentials in a ~/.aws/credentials file. I was wondering how I could create that file in Cloud9, as it is outside of the /workspace directory.

Thank you so much!

This is for Cloud9, not AWS Cloud9.


you can use either of the following two methods

  • use tree settings menu at the top left of the tree to show hidden file and home directory in the tree.
  • run c9 open ~/.aws/credentials in the terminal


Great, thank you! The c9 open command didn’t work for me for some reason, but show home directory did.
