How can rclone access aws S3 when rclone is insatlled and running on same aws ec2 instance

Hello experts,

I am using rclone to connect S3, ADLS and GCS by creating remotes with required creds for specified cloud.

Now I need to access AWS S3 when rclone is running in ec2 of same account AWS (or rclone running in k8 pod in aws).
Basically I want rclone to access cloud bucket using machine identity.

Is there any way to create remote with machine identity when rclone run in any cloud?


hello, is what you you want?
run rclone on an EC2 instance with an IAM role (AWS only).
