AWS SDK for Swift

The AWS SDK for Swift is a pure Swift SDK for AWS services.

The AWS SDK for Swift is currently in developer preview and is intended strictly for feedback purposes only. Do not use this SDK for production workloads. Refer to the SDK stability guidelines for more detail.


This library is licensed under the Apache 2.0 License.



You can define a config file at the root of the project to modify build behavior.

An example config with the various properties is below:

# comma separated list of paths to `includeBuild()`
# This is useful for local development of smithy-swift in particular 

# comma separated list of services to exclude from generation from sdk-codegen. When not specified all services are generated
# specify service.VERSION matching the filenames in the models directory `aws-models -> service.VERSION.json`
excludeModels=rds-data.2018-08-01, groundstation.2019-05-23 

# comma separated list of services to generate from sdk-codegen. When not specified all services are generated
# specify service.VERSION matching the filenames in the models directory `aws-models -> service.VERSION.json`.

# when generating aws services build as a standalong project or not (rootProject = true)

Note: If a service is specified in both excludeModels and onlyIncludeModels, it will be excluded from generation.

Building a single service

See the definition above to specify this in a config file.

>> ./gradlew -PonlyIncludeModels=lambda.2015-03-31  :sdk-codegen:build
Testing Locally

Testing generated services requires ClientRuntime of smithy-swift and AWSClientRuntime Swift packages.

SDK Usage Instructions


AWS SDKs are available under /release in a tagged branch.

We will walk you through how you can use CognitoIdentity as dependency for example in the steps below. To use it, we will create a test project called TestSdk.

mkdir TestSdk
cd TestSdk
swift package init --type executable
xed .

Once Xcode is open, open Package.swift. Update the file to mirror the following. Notice the three following changes:

  • Platforms is set to [.macOS(.v10_15), .iOS(.v13)],
  • dependencies: - has a .package which references the AWSCognitoIdentity package
  • the first target “TestSDK” has a dependency listed as AWSCognitoIdentity
// swift-tools-version:5.5
// The swift-tools-version declares the minimum version of Swift required to build this package.

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "TestSdk",
    platforms: [.macOS(.v10_15), .iOS(.v13)],
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "", from: "0.1.0"),
    targets: [
        // Targets are the basic building blocks of a package. A target can define a module or a test suite.
        // Targets can depend on other targets in this package, and on products in packages this package depends on.
            name: "TestSdk",
            dependencies: [.product(name: "AWSCognitoIdentity", package: "aws-sdk-swift")]),
            name: "TestSdkTests",
            dependencies: ["TestSdk"]),

Then you can open up main.swift, and instantiate CognitoIdentity as follows:

import AWSCognitoIdentity

func createIdentityPool() async throws -> CreateIdentityPoolOutputResponse {
    let cognitoIdentityClient = try CognitoIdentityClient(region: "us-east-1")
    let cognitoInputCall = CreateIdentityPoolInput(developerProviderName: "com.amazonaws.mytestapplication",
                                                    identityPoolName: "identityPoolMadeWithSwiftSDK")
    let result = try await cognitoIdentityClient.createIdentityPool(input: cognitoInputCall)
    return result

As a result, you should be able to:

  1. Log into your AWS console.
  2. Use the region switcher at the top-right corner of the screen to select the region "US-East (N. Virginia)", also known as us-east-1. This is the default region, though you can specify another region in your code if you wish.
  3. In the Services popup, click on Cognito (found under the heading "Security, Identity, & Compliance").
  4. Click the "Manage Identity Pools" button on the "Amazon Cognito" page.
  5. Verify that you see the newly created identity pool name: identityPoolMadeWithSwiftSDK.

If you’ve made it this far... congratulations! 🎉

API Reference documentation

We recommend to use the documentation generation capabilities within Xcode (Option+Click on a symbol), but if you don't have Xcode available, you can view generated API reference documentation on our github pages.


The AWS SDK for Swift uses SwiftLog for high performant logging. Many of our calls are issued to the debug level of output, which are disabled in the console by default. To see debug output to your console, you can add the following code to your application in a place where you know that the code will be called once and only once:

import ClientRuntime
SDKLoggingSystem.initialize(logLevel: .debug)

Alternatively, if you need finer grain control of instances of SwiftLog, you can call SDKLoggingSystem.add to control specific instances of the log handler. For example:

import ClientRuntime

SDKLoggingSystem.add(logHandlerFactory: S3ClientLogHandlerFactory(logLevel: .debug))
SDKLoggingSystem.add(logHandlerFactory: CRTClientEngineLogHandlerFactory(logLevel: .info))
