Boto3 Reference

class boto3.NullHandler(level=0)[source]

Initializes the instance - basically setting the formatter to None and the filter list to empty.

boto3.client(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Create a low-level service client by name using the default session.

See boto3.session.Session.client().

boto3.resource(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Create a resource service client by name using the default session.

See boto3.session.Session.resource().

boto3.set_stream_logger(name='boto3', level=10, format_string=None)[source]

Add a stream handler for the given name and level to the logging module. By default, this logs all boto3 messages to stdout.

>>> import boto3
>>> boto3.set_stream_logger('boto3.resources', logging.INFO)
  • name (string) -- Log name
  • level (int) -- Logging level, e.g. logging.INFO
  • format_string (str) -- Log message format

Set up a default session, passing through any parameters to the session constructor. There is no need to call this unless you wish to pass custom parameters, because a default session will be created for you.
