A bunch of AWS bash and python scripts that automate some AWS chores. Read the source of each script to see how it is used. Here's a few summaries.

  • Turn on the block public access feature for all buckets found.
  • I used to do raw CloudFormation scripts. Today I use mostly CDK. Back in the day, you needed to lookup the AMI id in every region if you were going to have a multi-region template. This automates looking up all the different IDs per region and spits out a YAML snippet you could include in a template.
  • I use the same SSH key in all regions. This automates uploading the SSH key to all regions in EC2.
  • A script that empties just a prefix of a bucket (e.g., only all the objects underneath s3://mybucket/path/dir/stuff/).
  • A quick script to find and remove all default VPCs in an AWS account.
  • A quick script that will find and delete any detached Internet Gateways in an account.
  • create-athena-org-table.sql: If you want to create an Athena table to query cloudtrail, and you want to query across a lot of accounts and a lot of regions (e.g., one big fat S3 bucket with your entire estate's CloudTrail logs), then this creates a somewhat dynamic table definition that creates a lot of partitions to simplify querying.
