Accessing Amazon QLDB using the API - Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (Amazon QLDB)

Accessing Amazon QLDB using the API

You can use the AWS Management Console and the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) to work interactively with Amazon QLDB. However, to get the most out of QLDB, you can write application code with a QLDB driver or an AWS SDK to interact with your ledger using the APIs.

The driver enables your application to interact with QLDB using the transactional data API. The AWS SDK enables interaction with the QLDB control plane API. For more information about these APIs, see the Amazon QLDB API reference.

The driver provides support for QLDB in Java, .NET, Go, Node.js, and Python. To get started quickly with these languages, see Getting started with the Amazon QLDB driver.

Before you can use the QLDB driver in your application, you must get an IAM access key ID and secret access key. For more information, see Getting IAM user access keys.
