How to view the available clouds

See also: juju clouds

To get the list of clouds that the client is aware of use the clouds command:

juju clouds --local --all

This will return a list very similar to:

Cloud           Regions  Default          Type        Description
aws                  15  us-east-1        ec2         Amazon Web Services

In versions prior to v.2.6.1 the clouds command only operates locally (there is no --local option).

Each line represents a cloud that Juju can interact with. It gives the cloud name, the number of cloud regions Juju is aware of, the default region (for the current Juju client), the type/API used to control it, and a brief description.

The cloud name (e.g. ‘aws’, ‘localhost’) is what you will use in any subsequent commands to refer to a cloud.
