Package support provides the client and types for making API requests to AWS Support.

The AWS Support API reference is intended for programmers who need detailed information about the AWS Support operations and data types. This service enables you to manage your AWS Support cases programmatically. It uses HTTP methods that return results in JSON format.

The AWS Support service also exposes a set of Trusted Advisor ( features. You can retrieve a list of checks and their descriptions, get check results, specify checks to refresh, and get the refresh status of checks.

The following list describes the AWS Support case management operations:

  • Service names, issue categories, and available severity levels. The DescribeServices and DescribeSeverityLevels operations return AWS service names, service codes, service categories, and problem severity levels. You use these values when you call the CreateCase operation.

  • Case creation, case details, and case resolution. The CreateCase, DescribeCases, DescribeAttachment, and ResolveCase operations create AWS Support cases, retrieve information about cases, and resolve cases.

  • Case communication. The DescribeCommunications, AddCommunicationToCase, and AddAttachmentsToSet operations retrieve and add communications and attachments to AWS Support cases.

The following list describes the operations available from the AWS Support service for Trusted Advisor:

  • DescribeTrustedAdvisorChecks returns the list of checks that run against your AWS resources.

  • Using the checkId for a specific check returned by DescribeTrustedAdvisorChecks, you can call DescribeTrustedAdvisorCheckResult to obtain the results for the check you specified.

  • DescribeTrustedAdvisorCheckSummaries returns summarized results for one or more Trusted Advisor checks.

  • RefreshTrustedAdvisorCheck requests that Trusted Advisor rerun a specified check.

  • DescribeTrustedAdvisorCheckRefreshStatuses reports the refresh status of one or more checks.

For authentication of requests, AWS Support uses Signature Version 4 Signing Process (

See About the AWS Support API ( in the AWS Support User Guide for information about how to use this service to create and manage your support cases, and how to call Trusted Advisor for results of checks on your resources.

Using the Client

To contact AWS Support with the SDK use the New function to create a new service client. With that client you can make API requests to the service. These clients are safe to use concurrently.

See the SDK's documentation for more information on how to use the SDK.

See aws.Config documentation for more information on configuring SDK clients.

See the AWS Support client Support for more information on creating client for this service.
