The InstanceProfile credential provider is used to call retrieve AWS credentials from conatiners running on AWS ECS

When running in an ECS Container on AWS, if said container has a Role attached to it, Paws can retrieve short-term credentials (and refresh them when needed) from the AWS provided "metadata service".

metadata_url: Str

The url where credentials will be retrieved. Defaults to documented endpoint for container profile retrieval. Should not normally need to be overriden.

timetout: Int

Number of seconds to wait before timinig out a connection to the metadata service. It defaults to 1 second, as the metadata service is almost local, and very fast responding. Note that if set too high, and the metadata service is not present (not running on an AWS instance), the connection has to time out


A user agent that has a get method. Defaults to HTTP::Tiny
