func SignSDKRequest(req *request.Request)

SignSDKRequest signs an AWS request with the V4 signature. This request handler should only be used with the SDK's built in service client's API operation requests.

This function should not be used on its on its own, but in conjunction with an AWS service client's API operation call. To sign a standalone request not created by a service client's API operation method use the "Sign" or "Presign" functions of the "Signer" type.

If the credentials of the request's config are set to credentials.AnonymousCredentials the request will not be signed.


Type: *request.Request
