Start EC2 instance



    AWS and boto3 recipes for Python

    When this line of code is executed, the DryRun flag is set to True, which tells the code to run the command without actually starting any instances. If an error occurs while trying to start instances, an exception is raised and the code prints out the error.

    Library: boto3

    import sys
    import boto3
    from botocore.exceptions import ClientError
      # Add DryRun first if you want to check the operation can be done
      response = ec2.start_instances(InstanceIds=[instanceid], DryRun=False)
    except ClientError as e:"Cannot start EC2 instance")
