Method 1

I found it very useful, since the Exceptions are not documented, to list all exceptions to the screen for this package. Here is the code I used to do it:

import botocore.exceptions
def listexns(mod):
    #module = __import__(mod)
    exns = []
    for name in botocore.exceptions.__dict__:
        if (isinstance(botocore.exceptions.__dict__[name], Exception) or
            name.endswith('Error')):
            exns.append(name)
    for name in exns:
        print('%s.%s is an exception type' % (str(mod), name))
    return

if __name__ == '__main__':
    import sys
    if len(sys.argv) <= 1:
        print('Give me a module name on the $PYTHONPATH!')
    print('Looking for exception types in module: %s' % sys.argv[1])
    listexns(sys.argv[1])

Which results in:

Method 2

Just an update to the ‘no exceptions on resources’ problem as pointed to by @jarmod (do please feel free to update your answer if below seems applicable)

I have tested the below code and it runs fine. It uses ‘resources’ for doing things, but catches the client.exceptions – although it ‘looks’ somewhat wrong… it tests good, the exception classes are showing and matching when looked into using debugger at exception time…

It may not be applicable to all resources and clients, but works for data folders (aka s3 buckets).

lab_session = boto3.Session() 
c = lab_session.client('s3') #this client is only for exception catching

try:
    b = s3.Bucket(bucket)
    b.delete()
except c.exceptions.NoSuchBucket as e:
    #ignoring no such bucket exceptions
    logger.debug("Failed deleting bucket. Continuing. {}".format(e))
except Exception as e:
    #logging all the others as warning
    logger.warning("Failed deleting bucket. Continuing. {}".format(e))

Hope this helps…
