SignatureV4.sign() signs an HTTP request with the AWS Signature V4 algorithm. Given an HTTP request description, it returns a new HTTP request with the AWS signature v4 protocol headers added. It returns an Object holding a url and a headers properties, ready to use in the context of k6's HTTP call.

Parameters

The first parameter of the sign method consists of an Object with the following properties.

PropertyTypeDescription
methodstringThe HTTP method of the request
protocolhttp or https stringThe network protocol of the request
hostnamestringThe hostname the request is sent to
pathstringThe path of the request
headersObjectThe headers of the HTTP request
uriEscapePathbooleanWhether to uri-escape the request URI path as part of computing the canonical request string. This is required for every AWS service, except Amazon S3, as of late 2017.
applyChecksumbooleanWhether to calculate a checksum of the request body and include it as either a request header (when signing) or as a query string parameter (when pre-signing). This is required for AWS Glacier and Amazon S3 and optional for every other AWS service as of late 2017.

You can override SignatureV4 options in the context of this specific request. To do this, pass a second parameter to the sign method, which is an Object with the following parameters.

PropertyTypeDescription
signingDateDateoverrides the Date used in the signing operation
signingServicestringoverrides the signer's AWS service in the context of the sign operation.
signingRegionstringoverrides the signer's AWS region in the context of the sign operation
unsignableHeadersSet<string>excludes headers from the signing process
signableHeadersSet<string>mark headers as signed

Returns

PropertyTypeDescription
headersObjectThe signed request's headers to use in the context of a k6 HTTP request
urlstringThe signed url to use in the context of a k6 HTTP request
