Configuring Credentials

Before using the SDK, ensure that you've configured credentials.

Via EC2 Instance Profile

If you are running your code on an AWS EC2 instance, you can setup an IAM role as the server's Instance Profile to automatically grant credentials via the metadata service.

There are no code changes or configurations to specify in the code, it will automatically pull and use them.

Via ECS Container credentials

If you are running your code as an AWS ECS container task, you can setup an IAM role for your container task to automatically grant credentials via the metadata service.

There are no code changes or configurations to specify in the code, it will automatically pull and use them.

Load Credentials from shared credential file.

You can set shared credentials in the home directory for the user running the app

in ~/.aws/credentials,

aws_access_key_id = YOUR_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
aws_secret_access_key = YOUR_AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY

Load Credentials from Environment Variable

Alternatively, you can set the following environment variables:


Pass the Credentials to the AWS Service struct directly

All of the AWS Services's initializers accept accessKeyId and secretAccessKey

let ec2 = EC2(
    accessKeyId: "YOUR_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID",
    secretAccessKey: "YOUR_AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY"

Using the aws-sdk-swift

import S3 //ensure this module is specified as a dependency in your package.swift

do {
    let bucket = "my-bucket"

    let s3 = S3(
        accessKeyId: "Your-Access-Key",
        secretAccessKey: "Your-Secret-Key",
        region: .apnortheast1

    // Create Bucket
    let createBucketRequest = S3.CreateBucketRequest(bucket: bucket)
    _ try s3.createBucket(createBucketRequest)

    // Upload text file to the s3
    let bodyData = "hello world".data(using: .utf8)!
    let putObjectRequest = S3.PutObjectRequest(bucket: bucket, contentLength: Int64(bodyData.count), key: "hello.txt", body: bodyData, acl: .publicRead)
    _ = try s3.putObject(putObjectRequest)

    // Get text file from s3
    let getObjectRequest = S3.GetObjectRequest(bucket: bucket, key: "hello.txt")
    let getObjectOutput = try s3.getObject(getObjectRequest)
    if let body = getObjectOutput.body {
      print(String(data: body, encoding: .utf8))
} catch {

Speed Up Compilation

By specifying only those modules necessary for your application, only those modules will compile which makes for fast compilation.

If you want to create a module for your service, you can try using the module-exporter to build a separate repo for any of the modules.
