As others have already pointed out, the Project Settings docs for AWS Permissions are out of date for v2.0. I’ve verified by SSHing into my build that my AWS credentials are not being written to
~/.aws/credentials even though they’re being exposed as env variables in the shell.
I understand that for most people using the
aws cli this difference is negligible, but I’m using a deploy tool (Scotty.js) that’s only looking for that specific credentials file under the hood. The outdated docs are very confusing and led me down a rabbit hole that easily could’ve been avoided by just updating those docs. Please update!
