how to AWS SSM "run " commnand" to pull down a file from S3 bucket and place it into a specific directory?????

AWS SSM "run " commnand" to pull down a file from s3 bucket and place it into a specific directory

I am attempting to run a shell script that copies  a file ( a pem.key)  from  an S3 bucket , to an AWSes 2 instance

I have the knowlege to get to the run command and run shell scripts no problem , but I have NO IDEA how to copy a file from S3 and place it into the

~/.ssh/ directory ,

the envental goal it to have an applicaion (ansible ) connect to each instance

I think I will first have to copy the PEM key and then that will allow me to copy the id_rsa.pub key to each instance


how can this be done , I am very new to this part of it

thanks !!

You need the AWS cli installed on your server.
The AWS cli is installed by default on AWS Linux. If you have anything else, then check the existence by running

aws --version

If it is not installed, follow the instructions here https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/installing.html

Once you have AWS cli installed, you can either configure it with access keys  or assign the server a role of S3 reader.

The command to pull a file from S3 is

aws s3 cp s3://youbucket/yourpath/somefile.pem  /localpath/somefile.pem
