Okta AWS CLI Assume Role tool

New to Amazon Web Services with Okta? **Start with the Configuring AWS in Okta.

This tool has been verified to work on macOS Sierra, High Sierra, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 10, and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and is expected to work on other Linux systems as well.

Installation

Windows

  1. Run the following in a PowerShell console
    Set-ExecutionPolicy -Scope Process -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Force; Invoke-Expression ((New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/oktadeveloper/okta-aws-cli-assume-role/master/bin/Install-OktaAwsCli.ps1')); .$profile
  2. Customize %userprofile%\.okta\config.properties and set OKTA_ORG and OKTA_AWS_APP_URL appropriately. For example,
    OKTA_ORG=acmecorp.oktapreview.com
    OKTA_AWS_APP_URL=https://acmecorp.oktapreview.com/home/amazon_aws/0oa5zrwfs815KJmVF0h7/137

macOS/Linux

  1. Run the following in a Terminal:

    export PREFIX=/usr/local
    curl 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/oktadeveloper/okta-aws-cli-assume-role/master/bin/install.sh' | bash
  2. Customize ~/.okta/config.properties and set OKTA_ORG and OKTA_AWS_APP_URL appropriately. For example,

    OKTA_ORG=acmecorp.oktapreview.com
    OKTA_AWS_APP_URL=https://acmecorp.oktapreview.com/home/amazon_aws/0oa5zrwfs815KJmVF0h7/137
  3. Make sure /usr/local/bin (or whatever $PREFIX/bin is) is in your PATH

Docker

  1. Copy config.properties to ~/.okta/config.properties and set OKTA_ORG and OKTA_AWS_APP_URL appropriately. For example,

    OKTA_ORG=acmecorp.oktapreview.com
    OKTA_AWS_APP_URL=https://acmecorp.oktapreview.com/home/amazon_aws/0oa5zrwfs815KJmVF0h7/137
  2. Run this command:

    docker run -v ~/.okta/config.properties:/root/.okta/config.properties -it tomsmithokta/okta-awscli-java

Read more at @tom-smith-okta's okta-awscli-java Docker repo.

Manual install

Create a .okta directory in your home directory. For example, ~/.okta.

Download the latest release JAR and put it in .okta: https://github.com/oktadeveloper/okta-aws-cli-assume-role/releases

Copy config.properties to ~/.okta/config.properties and set OKTA_ORG and OKTA_AWS_APP_URL appropriately. For example,

OKTA_ORG=acmecorp.oktapreview.com
OKTA_AWS_APP_URL=https://acmecorp.oktapreview.com/home/amazon_aws/0oa5zrwfs815KJmVF0h7/137

Copy scripts from .okta/bin to somewhere on your PATH.

Usage

Verify your setup with a simple command:

okta-aws test sts get-caller-identity

This will prompt for Okta credentials, log you into AWS, let you pick a role, and store a session profile called test for you.

Run the program again to see session resumption (you won't be asked for Okta credentials until the session expires):

okta-aws test sts get-caller-identity

NOTE: okta-aws is a function loaded from your shell profile, not a typical program or command stored in a file.

Reference

Compiling the application

The application was built and compiled with JetBrains' IntelliJ IDEA. Note that you don't have to compile the application in order to be able to execute it, since the compiled executable (a JAR file) is available on GitHub.

Prerequisites

First of all, it goes without saying that you will need to install the Java SE 8x or the Java JDK 8x.

Then you will need Maven 2 or later to run the build.

Building on the command line

Get a single JAR with all dependencies:

Use git clone https://github.com/oktadeveloper/okta-aws-cli-assume-role.git to clone the repository locally. Then, build with Maven:

mvn package
cp target/okta-aws-cli-*.jar out/oktaawscli.jar

Opening the project with IntelliJ Idea

  • Open the IntelliJ Idea IDE and browse to the okta-aws-cli-assume-role folder you have cloned from GitHub inside the Projects folder.
  • Go to File => Project Structure and in the Libraries menu, fix the Java references that don't match your local setup.
  • Go to Build => Make Project in order to compile the project.
  • The project also builds the JAR artifact, so if you browse to the out sub-folder, you will see the oktaawscli.jar JAR artifact.
  • Make sure the awscli.command file is in the out sub-folder.

Configuring AWS in Okta

Integrating the Amazon Web Services Command Line Interface Using Okta.

Configuring the application

Here is the list of parameters that can be environment variables or settings in the ~/.okta/config.properties file:

  • OKTA_ORG which is the url of your Okta org (starting with https://).

  • OKTA_AWS_APP_URL is the url link of your Okta AWS application url (see below for more info)

  • OKTA_USERNAME is the username to use. If present will skip username input.

  • OKTA_PASSWORD_CMD is the command to fetch your password instead of showing a password prompt. Read more...

  • OKTA_ENV_MODE set to true to run sub-command with AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID, AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY, and AWS_SESSION_TOKEN env vars set. Temporary credentials are shared in memory and kept off disk in this mode. (default: false)

  • OKTA_BROWSER_AUTH set to true to use integrated web browser for authentication (default: false)

  • OKTA_COOKIES_PATH is directory path to store cookies.properties for Okta. This is particularly useful when running this tool in many concurrent processes like you might with OKTA_ENV_MODE (default: ~/.okta)

  • OKTA_PROFILE is the name of the AWS profile to create/reuse. May also be specified on the commandline by --profile. (default: get AWS profile name based on per-session STS user name)

  • OKTA_AWS_REGION is the default AWS region to store with the created profile.

  • OKTA_AWS_ROLE_TO_ASSUME is the role to use. If present will try to match okta account's retrieved role list and use it. Will still prompt if no match found.

  • OKTA_STS_DURATION is the duration the role will be assumed, in seconds. The maximum session duration allowed by AWS is 12 hours and this needs to be set on the role as well. Defaults to 1hr.

  • Obtaining the AWS app url

    • Navigate to the Admin Dashboard of you Okta organization
    • Select the Applications tab and click on your AWS Application
    • Under the General menu, scroll down to find the App Embed Link section
    • Your link is located under EMBED LINK
  • Replace the example values in config.properties with your values

Note: environment variables take precedence over the config file.

Troubleshooting

I get "You have no factors enrolled"

This means that MFA is enforced, but you have no factors enrolled on your user.

You should enrol a CLI-supported factor (all except Duo as far as I know).

If you are using Duo Push, consider setting OKTA_BROWSER_AUTH=true in the configuration.

I have Duo, but I get "None of your factors are supported"

This means that MFA is enforced, but none of the factors you have enrolled are supported.

Okta's integration with Duo requires an iframe which isn't practical to interact with from a CLI context.
