AWS

class RPA.Cloud.AWS.AWS(region: str = 'eu-west-1', robocloud_vault_name: str = None)

Bases: RPA.Cloud.AWS.ServiceS3, RPA.Cloud.AWS.ServiceTextract, RPA.Cloud.AWS.ServiceComprehend, RPA.Cloud.AWS.ServiceSQS

AWS is a library for operating with Amazon AWS services S3, SQS, Textract and Comprehend.

Services are initialized with keywords like Init S3 Client for S3.

AWS authentication

Authentication for AWS is set with key id and access key which can be given to the library in three different ways.

  • Method 1 as environment variables, AWS_KEY_ID and AWS_KEY.

  • Method 2 as keyword parameters to Init Textract Client for example.

  • Method 3 as Robocloud vault secret. The vault name needs to be given in library init or with keyword Set Robocloud Vault. Secret keys are expected to match environment variable names.

Method 1. credentials using environment variable

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.AWS

*** Tasks ***
Init AWS services
    # NO parameters for client, expecting to get credentials
    # with AWS_KEY and AWS_KEY_ID environment variable
    Init S3 Client

Method 2. credentials with keyword parameter

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.AWS

*** Tasks ***
Init AWS services
    Init S3 Client  aws_key_id=${AWS_KEY_ID}  aws_key=${AWS_KEY}

Method 3. setting Robocloud Vault in the library init

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.AWS  robocloud_vault_name=aws

*** Tasks ***
Init AWS services
    Init S3 Client  use_robocloud_vault=${TRUE}

Method 3. setting Robocloud Vault with keyword

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.AWS

*** Tasks ***
Init Azure services
    Set Robocloud Vault         vault_name=aws
    Init Textract Client  use_robocloud_vault=${TRUE}

Requirements

The default installation depends on boto3 library. Due to the size of the dependency, this library has been set as an optional package for rpaframework.

This can be installed by opting in to the aws dependency:

pip install rpaframework[aws]

Example

*** Settings ***
Library   RPA.Cloud.AWS   region=us-east-1

*** Variables ***
${BUCKET_NAME}        testbucket12213123123
