You can specify the API credentials in the credentials json file:
You can also use environment variables, but this is discouraged, unless your environment provides them already.
$ export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=XXXXXXXXX $ export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=YYYYYYYYY
You can find some other ways to authenticate to Route53 in the go sdk configuration.
This provider does not recognize any special metadata fields unique to route 53.
DNSControl depends on a standard AWS access key with permission to list, create and update hosted zones.
If a domain does not exist in your Route53 account, DNSControl will not automatically add it with the
create-domains command. You can do that either manually via the control panel, or via the command
dnscontrol create-domains command.
This code may not function properly if a domain has R53 as a Registrar but not as a DnsProvider. The situation is described in PR#155.
In this situation you will see a message like:
----- Registrar: r53_main Error getting corrections: AccessDeniedException: User: arn:aws:iam::868399730840:user/dnscontrol is not authorized to perform: route53domains:GetDomainDetail status code: 400, request id: 48b534a1-7902-11e7-afa6-a3fffd2ce139 Done. 1 corrections.
If this happens to you, we’d appreciate it if you could help us fix the code. In the meanwhile, you can give the account additional IAM permissions so that it can do DNS-related actions, or simply use
NewRegistrar(..., 'NONE') for now.

This means that the creds.json entry isn’t found. Either there is no entry, or the entry name doesn’t match the first parameter in the
NewDnsProvider() call. In the above example, note
that the string
r53_main is specified in
NewDnsProvider('r53_main', 'ROUTE53') and that is the exact key used in the creds file above.

This means the KeyId is unknown to AWS.

This means the SecretKey is incorrect. It may be a quoting issue.
