GetFunction

Returns the configuration information of the Lambda function and a presigned URL link to the .zip file you uploaded with CreateFunction so you can download the .zip file. Note that the URL is valid for up to 10 minutes. The configuration information is the same information you provided as parameters when uploading the function.

Using the optional Qualifier parameter, you can specify a specific function version for which you want this information. If you don't specify this parameter, the API uses unqualified function ARN which return information about the $LATEST version of the Lambda function. For more information, see AWS Lambda Function Versioning and Aliases.

This operation requires permission for the lambda:GetFunction action.

Request Syntax

Copy
GET /2015-03-31/functions/FunctionName?Qualifier=Qualifier HTTP/1.1

URI Request Parameters

The request requires the following URI parameters.

FunctionName

The Lambda function name.

You can specify a function name (for example, Thumbnail) or you can specify Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the function (for example, arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:account-id:function:ThumbNail). AWS Lambda also allows you to specify a partial ARN (for example, account-id:Thumbnail). 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.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 140.

Pattern: (arn:aws:lambda:)?([a-z]{2}-[a-z]+-\d{1}:)?(\d{12}:)?(function:)?([a-zA-Z0-9-_]+)(:(\$LATEST|[a-zA-Z0-9-_]+))?

Qualifier

Using this optional parameter to specify a function version or an alias name. If you specify function version, the API uses qualified function ARN for the request and returns information about the specific Lambda function version. If you specify an alias name, the API uses the alias ARN and returns information about the function version to which the alias points. If you don't provide this parameter, the API uses unqualified function ARN and returns information about the $LATEST version of the Lambda function.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: (|[a-zA-Z0-9$_-]+)

Request Body

The request does not have a request body.

Response Syntax

Copy
HTTP/1.1 200 Content-type: application/json { "Code": { "Location": "string", "RepositoryType": "string" }, "Configuration": { "CodeSha256": "string", "CodeSize": number, "DeadLetterConfig": { "TargetArn": "string" }, "Description": "string", "Environment": { "Error": { "ErrorCode": "string", "Message": "string" }, "Variables": { "string" : "string" } }, "FunctionArn": "string", "FunctionName": "string", "Handler": "string", "KMSKeyArn": "string", "LastModified": "string", "MemorySize": number, "Role": "string", "Runtime": "string", "Timeout": number, "Version": "string", "VpcConfig": { "SecurityGroupIds": [ "string" ], "SubnetIds": [ "string" ], "VpcId": "string" } } }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

Code

The object for the Lambda function location.

Type: FunctionCodeLocation object

Configuration

A complex type that describes function metadata.

Type: FunctionConfiguration object

Errors

InvalidParameterValueException

One of the parameters in the request is invalid. For example, if you provided an IAM role for AWS Lambda to assume in the CreateFunction or the UpdateFunctionConfiguration API, that AWS Lambda is unable to assume you will get this exception.

HTTP Status Code: 400

ResourceNotFoundException

The resource (for example, a Lambda function or access policy statement) specified in the request does not exist.

HTTP Status Code: 404
