[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--function-name (string)

Function name for which the alias is created. An alias is a subresource that exists only in the context of an existing Lambda function so you must specify the function name. Note that the length constraint applies only to the ARN. If you specify only the function name, it is limited to 64 characters in length.

--name (string)

Name of the alias for which you want to retrieve information.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.


AliasArn -> (string)

Lambda function ARN that is qualified using the alias name as the suffix. For example, if you create an alias called BETA that points to a helloworld function version, the ARN is arn:aws:lambda:aws-regions:acct-id:function:helloworld:BETA .

Name -> (string)

name name.

FunctionVersion -> (string)

Function version to which the alias points.

Description -> (string)

name description.
