To install a AWS CLI in a Jenkins running on a docker container, you can follow the below steps. But it would be better if you create a custom Jenkins docker file with AWS CLI and then create a custom image to spin up the Jenkins container. But sometimes, you may need to install various packages.
Install AWS CLI in Jenkins Docker Container
- Take a note of the running Jenkins containers and then run to login as a root
docker exec -u 0 -it 85f0af1f40e4 bash
- Next, update the packages list:

curl “https://awscli.amazonaws.com/awscli-exe-linux-x86_64.zip” -o “awscliv2.zip”
