Auto-generated documentation for DLM type annotations stubs module mypy-boto3-dlm.


Implicit type annotations#

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

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

# DLMClient usage example

from boto3.session import Session

session = Session()

client = session.client("dlm")  # (1)
result = client.create_lifecycle_policy()  # (2)
  1. client: DLMClient
  2. result: CreateLifecyclePolicyResponseTypeDef

Explicit type annotations#

With boto3-stubs-lite[dlm] or a standalone mypy_boto3_dlm package, you have to explicitly specify client: DLMClient 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.

# DLMClient usage example with type annotations

from boto3.session import Session

from mypy_boto3_dlm.client import DLMClient
from mypy_boto3_dlm.type_defs import CreateLifecyclePolicyResponseTypeDef
from mypy_boto3_dlm.type_defs import CreateLifecyclePolicyRequestRequestTypeDef

session = Session()

client: DLMClient = session.client("dlm")

kwargs: CreateLifecyclePolicyRequestRequestTypeDef = {...}
result: CreateLifecyclePolicyResponseTypeDef = client.create_lifecycle_policy(**kwargs)
