Get a batch of Secrets Manager secret values using the Python Amazon SDK

The following code example shows how to get a batch of Secrets Manager secret values.

Required permissions:

  • secretsmanager:BatchGetSecretValue

  • secretsmanager:GetSecretValue permission for each secret you want to retrieve.

  • If you use filters, you must also have secretsmanager:ListSecrets.

For an example permissions policy, see Permission to retrieve a group of secret values in a batch.


If you have a VPCE policy that denies permission to retrieve an individual secret in the group you are retrieving, BatchGetSecretValue will not return any secret values, and it will return an error.
