Module: Aws::STS

Defined in:


This module provides a client for making API requests to AWS Security Token Service.


The Client class provides one-to-one mapping for each API operation.

sts = 'us-east-1')
#=> [:assume_role, :assume_role_with_saml, :assume_role_with_web_identity, :decode_authorization_message, ...]

Each API operation method accepts a hash of request parameters and returns a response object.

resp = sts.assume_role(params)

See Client for more information.


Errors returned from AWS Security Token Service are defined in the Errors module and extend Errors::ServiceError.

  # do stuff
rescue Aws::STS::Errors::ServiceError
  # rescues all errors returned by AWS Security Token Service
