Amazon (AWS) model

Reference documentation

This is reference documentation covering the entire Atlan model. It is not the best place to start when trying to understand developing with Atlan. For that, we would suggest starting with either:

  • Snippets — small, atomic examples of single-step use cases.
  • Patterns — walkthroughs of common multi-step implementation patterns.

Base class for AWS assets.
