A helper function for setting environment variables from AWS secret manager

Project description


This is a helper function to set up environment variables from AWS secrets manager. The main function to use is set_env_variables(default_region_name, stop_on_failure=False, **kwargs). In addition to default_region_name and stop_on_failure, there are several kwargs that can be passed.


  • If os.environ[region_name_env_name] is not set, the default_region_name will be used as the region name instead.
    • region_name_env_name is the name of the environment variable to check for the region name.
      • Default: 'SECRETS_REGION_NAME'
  • stop_on_failure is a flag to indicate whether or not errors should be fatal. It is strongly recommended for this to be set to True in a production environment.
  • secrets_name is the name of the secret to pull secrets from.
    • Default: os.environ[secrets_name_env_name]'
      • secrets_name_env_name is the name of the environment variable to use if secrets_name is not in kwargs.
        • Default: 'SECRETS_NAME'
  • aws_access_key_id is the ID of the AWS access key to be used.
    • Default: os.environ[aws_access_key_id_env_name]'
      • aws_access_key_id_env_name is the name of the environment variable to use if aws_access_key_id is not in kwargs.
        • Default: 'AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'
  • aws_secret_access_key is the AWS key used to access the secrets.
    • Default: os.environ[aws_secret_access_key_env_name]'
      • aws_secret_access_key_env_name is the name of the environment variable to use if aws_secret_access_key is not in kwargs.
        • Default: 'AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'
  • service_name is the service name of the secrets manager to connect to.
    • Default: 'secretsmanager'
