What is Awspice?

Is a wrapper of Boto3 library to list inventory and manage your AWS infrastructure The objective of the wrapper is to make easier some common tasks in AWS, being able to dig through different regions and accounts.

Awspice make it easy to:

  • List all your EC2 instances for multiple regions and accounts

  • Get deployed infraestructure behind a Load Balancer.

  • List all instances with exposed critical ports like 22 or 3389

  • Get info about all certificates of your account/s

  • Find exposed S3 buckets


pip install awspice


The client is built and configured using awspice.connect(). This method indicates the type of authentication and region on which you are going to work.

import awspice

# Region: eu-west-1 | Profile: Default
aws = awspice.connect()

# Using profiles
aws = awspice.connect(region='us-west-2', profile='dev_profile')
# Using access keys
aws = awspice.connect('us-west-2', access_key='AKIA***********', secret_key='/HR$4************')


Example: Get balancer and instances behind a domain.

aws = awspice.connect()

elb = aws.service.elb.get_loadbalancer_by('domain', '')
for elb_instance in elb['Instances']:
  instance = aws.service.ec2.get_instance_by('id', elb_instance['InstanceId'])

Example: List all unused volumes

all_regions = aws.service.ec2.get_regions()
volumes = awsmanager.service.ec2.get_volumes_by('status', 'available', regions=all_regions)

Example: Search instance in all accounts and regions by Public IP

profiles = aws.service.ec2.get_profiles()
regions = aws.service.ec2.get_regions()

for profile in profiles:

    instance = aws.service.ec2.get_instance_by('publicip', '', regions=regions)

    if instance:
        print 'Instance found: %s (Account: %s, Region: %s)' % (instance['InstanceId'], instance['RegionName'], instance['Authorization']['Value'])
