aws configure get <varname>
Get a configuration value from the config file. The ``aws configure get`` command can be used to print a configuration value in the AWS config file. The ``get`` command supports two types of configuration values, *unqualified* and *qualified* config values. Note that ``aws configure get`` only looks at values in the AWS configuration file. It does **not** resolve configuration variables specified anywhere else, including environment variables, command line arguments, etc. Unqualified Names ----------------- Every value in the AWS configuration file must be placed in a section (denoted by ``[section-name]`` in the config file). To retrieve a value from the config file, the section name and the config name must be known. An unqualified configuration name refers to a name that is not scoped to a specific section in the configuration file. Sections are specified by separating parts with the ``"."`` character (``section.config-name``). An unqualified name will be scoped to the current profile. For example, ``aws configure get aws_access_key_id`` will retrieve the ``aws_access_key_id`` from the current profile, or the ``default`` profile if no profile is specified. You can still provide a ``--profile`` argument to the ``aws configure get`` command. For example, ``aws configure get region --profile testing`` will print the region value for the ``testing`` profile. Qualified Names --------------- A qualified name is a name that has at least one ``"."`` character in the name. This name provides a way to specify the config section from which to retrieve the config variable. When a qualified name is provided to ``aws configure get``, the currently specified profile is ignored. Section names that have the format ``[profile profile-name]`` can be specified by using the ``profile.profile-name.config-name`` syntax, and the default profile can be specified using the ``default.config-name`` syntax.
