Auto-generated documentation for Detective type annotations stubs module mypy-boto3-detective.


Implicit type annotations

Can be used with boto3-stubs[detective] package installed.

Write your Detective code as usual, type checking and code completion should work out of the box.

Client usage example
from boto3.session import Session

session = Session()

client = session.client("detective")  # (1)
result = client.accept_invitation()  # (2)
  1. client: DetectiveClient
  2. result: EmptyResponseMetadataTypeDef

Explicit type annotations

With boto3-stubs-lite[detective] or a standalone mypy_boto3_detective package, you have to explicitly specify client: DetectiveClient type annotation.

All other type annotations are optional, as types should be discovered automatically. However, these type annotations can be helpful in your functions and methods.

Client usage example
from boto3.session import Session

from mypy_boto3_detective.client import DetectiveClient
from mypy_boto3_detective.type_defs import EmptyResponseMetadataTypeDef
from mypy_boto3_detective.type_defs import AcceptInvitationRequestRequestTypeDef

session = Session()

client: DetectiveClient = session.client("detective")

kwargs: AcceptInvitationRequestRequestTypeDef = {...}
result: EmptyResponseMetadataTypeDef = client.accept_invitation(**kwargs)
