Use Amazon Location Service SDK

If you need functionality in the AWSLocation framework used by the Amplify Geo category that isn't available, we provide an escape hatch so you can reference it directly.

Note: If you provisioned your Geo resources, then the IAM policy will be specifically scoped to only allow actions required by the library. Please adjust your authorization permissions accordingly for your escape hatch use-cases.

import AWSLocation

Then retrieve the escape hatch and call methods on AWSLocation directly:

do {
// Retrieve AWSLocationGeoPlugin
let plugin = try Amplify.Geo.getPlugin(for: "awsLocationGeoPlugin")
guard let locationPlugin = plugin as? AWSLocationGeoPlugin else {
// Retrieve reference to AWSLocation
let awsLocation = locationPlugin.getEscapeHatch()
// Make Request
var request = ListMapsInput()
request.maxResults = 5
let response = try await awsLocation.listMaps(input: request)
// handle response ...
} catch {
print("Error occurred while fetching the escape hatch \(error)")
