Command line access

I’m new to Portainer - the introduction came from Home Assistant. Home Assistant’s functionality can be extended via ‘add-ons’ which I understand are deployed into a Docker container.

I would like to install AWS-CLI and have found it on the Docker hub (

In Portainer I went to Images and then pull an image from the above URL. Image gets pulled and appears in the list of images.

But that’s where I get stuck. I need to access the command line to run AWS-CLI commands. How do I access this?

After image is pulled, pl run as container. this will have the console icon. Hope that helps
