Manually configuring your shell profile

If you keep your shell profile in a non-standard location, Granted may fail to install the alias. If this happens, you can manually add the alias to your shell profile. Some examples are included below to assist you:


Add the following to ~/.bash_profile:

alias assume="source assume"


Add the following to ~/.zshenv:

alias assume="source assume"


Add the following to ~/.config/fish/

alias assume="source /usr/local/bin/"

AWS SSO issues


Entering the wrong sso_region will result in this cryptic looking error:

A screenshot of an AWS error that just says "invalid grant".

If you don't know which SSO region your AWS organization is in, you'll need to check with whoever set up your AWS SSO service. Alternatively, you can just guess until you get it right. There's only twenty-one of them.
