  • Eric Pullen, Performance Efficiency Lead Well-Architected


The purpose of this lab is to teach you how to use the AWS SDK for Python (Boto3) to copy a Well-Architected review to a new location. The python application in this lab allows you to copy a workload between accounts, regions, or a combination of both.


  • An AWS Account that you are able to use for testing, that is not used for production or other purposes.
  • An Identity and Access Management (IAM) user or federated credentials into that account that has permissions to use Well-Architected Tool (WellArchitectedConsoleFullAccess managed policy).
  • Python 3.9+
  • AWS SDK for Python (Boto3) installed


  • There are no costs for copying or creating new WellArchitected Reviews
