Types

type Error

type Error interface {
	// Satisfy the generic error interface.
	error

	// Returns the short phrase depicting the classification of the error.
	Code() string

	// Returns the error details message.
	Message() string

	// Returns the original error if one was set.  Nil is returned if not set.
	OrigErr() error
}

An Error wraps lower level errors with code, message and an original error. The underlying concrete error type may also satisfy other interfaces which can be to used to obtain more specific information about the error.

Calling Error() or String() will always include the full information about an error based on its underlying type.

Example:

output, err := s3manage.Upload(svc, input, opts)
if err != nil {
    if awsErr, ok := err.(awserr.Error); ok {
        // Get error details
        log.Println("Error:", err.Code(), err.Message())

        Prints out full error message, including original error if there was one.
        log.Println("Error:", err.Error())

        // Get original error
        if origErr := err.Err(); origErr != nil {
            // operate on original error.
        }
    } else {
        fmt.Println(err.Error())
    }
}

type RequestFailure

type RequestFailure interface {
	Error

	// The status code of the HTTP response.
	StatusCode() int

	// The request ID returned by the service for a request failure. This will
	// be empty if no request ID is available such as the request failed due
	// to a connection error.
	RequestID() string
}

A RequestFailure is an interface to extract request failure information from an Error such as the request ID of the failed request returned by a service. RequestFailures may not always have a requestID value if the request failed prior to reaching the service such as a connection error.

Example:

output, err := s3manage.Upload(svc, input, opts)
if err != nil {
    if reqerr, ok := err.(RequestFailure); ok {
        log.Printf("Request failed", reqerr.Code(), reqerr.Message(), reqerr.RequestID())
    } else {
        log.Printf("Error:", err.Error()
    }
}

Combined with awserr.Error:

output, err := s3manage.Upload(svc, input, opts)
if err != nil {
    if awsErr, ok := err.(awserr.Error); ok {
        // Generic AWS Error with Code, Message, and original error (if any)
        fmt.Println(awsErr.Code(), awsErr.Message(), awsErr.OrigErr())

        if reqErr, ok := err.(awserr.RequestFailure); ok {
            // A service error occurred
            fmt.Println(reqErr.StatusCode(), reqErr.RequestID())
        }
    } else {
        fmt.Println(err.Error())
    }
}
