It is possible to define aspects of type AwsCallAspect[R] that can modify the behavior of the AWS client modules. This can be used for example to add logging or metrics to the AWS clients and it's also the recommended way to handle retries or apply rate limiting and other similar patterns.

The library contains two default aspects, implementing logging and metrics on top of ZIO 2's core capabilities:

val callLogging: AwsCallAspect[Any]
def callDuration(prefix: String, boundaries: MetricKeyType.Histogram.Boundaries): AwsCallAspect[Any]

To define an aspect, create an instance of the AwsCallAspect trait:

val callLogging: AwsCallAspect[Any] =
new AwsCallAspect[Any] {
override final def apply[R, E >: AwsError, A <: Described[_]](
f: ZIO[R, E, A]
)(implicit trace: Trace): ZIO[R, E, A] = {
.flatMap {
case (duration, Right(r)) =>
case (duration, Left(error)) =>
s"AWS call FAILED in $duration with $error"
.ignore *>
// callLogging: AwsCallAspect[Any] = repl.MdocSession$MdocApp$$anon$1@2ac186c1

This aspect can attached to a client layer with the @@ operator. Multiple aspects can be composed with >>>.
