AWS HTTPSConnectionPool max retries exceeded01 Dec 2014 - about 1 min to read
I’m working with a new AWS account and I am moving to testing Boto3 to use the KMS service. I needed to make sure that the AWS account and secret keys were updated so ran
aws configure to quickly update them.
I added the new keys and saw that default region was set to
[Ireland] so accepted default and ran the following code
I was puzzled to get the following error;
It didn’t sit right that the url had ireland in it explicitly when its generally the region code that is used with AWS so I went back the
aws configure and set
eu-west-1 as the default region.
On rerunning the code it all worked, so worth noting if this error comes up.
