Access the AWS console

Access is via gds-users, and then assuming your role from the GovWifi account. You must be on the VPN to access the console.

Staging and Production are hosted in different AWS accounts.

Ask the reliability engineers for the GovWifi account IDs. AWS roles are in the form firstname.lastname-admin or firstname.lastname-readonly.

Use the gds-cli

You can also use the gds-cli to access the GovWifi AWS console.

Review the configuration instructions on the gds-cli README to set it up.

Once the gds-cli is set up, run the following command from anywhere in your terminal to login as read-only to Production:

$ gds aws govwifi-readonly -l

If you have admin privileges in the Production AWS account, you can run a similar command to login as admin:

$ gds aws govwifi -l

You can login as read-only to Staging by running the following command:

$ gds aws govwifi-staging-readonly -l

You can login as admin to Staging by running the following command:

$ gds aws govwifi-staging -l
