Bucket and Object Traversals

Give Feedback

If you need to retrieve information from or apply an operation to all your S3 resources, Boto3 gives you several ways to iteratively traverse your buckets and your objects.

To traverse all the buckets in your account, you can use the resource’s buckets attribute alongside .all(), which gives you the complete list of Bucket instances.

You can use the client to retrieve the bucket information as well, but the code is more complex, as you need to extract it from the dictionary that the client returns.
