How to get AWS account ID from curl in powershell

Does anyone know how to get the AWS account id in powershell?, I would like to do the this from the curl command, and have this running well under linux from here:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51597492/how-to-get-aws-account-number-id-based-on-ec2-instance-which-is-hosted-in-amazo#:~:text=You%20can%20obtain%20the%20account,%2Finstance%2Didentity%2Fdocument.&text=This%20gives%20me%20%22Unable%20to,running%20%22aws%20configure%22.%22

Specifically this:

curl -s http://169.254.169.254/latest/dynamic/instance-identity/document | sed -nE 's/.*"accountId"\s*:\s*"(.*)".*/\1/p'

And I can use the curl command in windows get get the same output but without parsing like this

curl http://169.254.169.254/latest/dynamic/instance-identity/document

but I have no idea how to parse and get just the accountId number, or the instanceId if I need that..

I have tried the Select statement, but get no meaningful results.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance..

>Solution :

You can use:

$account_id = ((curl http://169.254.169.254/latest/dynamic/instance-identity/document).Content | ConvertFrom-Json).accountId
