How to configure authorization mechanism inline with boto3

I am using boto3 in aws lambda to fecth object in S3 located in Frankfurt Region.

v4 is necessary. otherwise following error will return

"errorMessage": "An error occurred (InvalidRequest) when calling 
the GetObject operation: The authorization mechanism you have 
provided is not supported. Please use AWS4-HMAC-SHA256."

Realized ways to configure signature_version

But since I am using AWS lambda, I do not have access to underlying configuration profiles

The code of my AWS lambda function

from __future__ import print_function
import boto3

def lambda_handler (event, context):
    input_file_bucket = event["Records"][0]["s3"]["bucket"]["name"]
    input_file_key = event["Records"][0]["s3"]["object"]["key"]
    input_file_name = input_file_bucket+"/"+input_file_key

    obj = s3.Object(bucket_name=input_file_bucket, key=input_file_key)
    response = obj.get()
    return event #echo first key valuesdf

Is that possible to configure signature_version within this code ? use Session for example. Or is there any workaround on this?

  • Instead of using the default session, try using custom session and Config from boto3.session

    import boto3
    import boto3.session
    session = boto3.session.Session(region_name='eu-central-1')
    s3client = session.client('s3', config= boto3.session.Config(signature_version='s3v4'))
    s3client.get_object(Bucket='<Bkt-Name>', Key='S3-Object-Key')
