UpdateFunctionCode

Updates the code for the specified Lambda function. This operation must only be used on an existing Lambda function and cannot be used to update the function configuration.

If you are using the versioning feature, note this API will always update the $LATEST version of your Lambda function. For information about the versioning feature, see AWS Lambda Function Versioning and Aliases.

This operation requires permission for the lambda:UpdateFunctionCode action.

Request Syntax

Copy
PUT /2015-03-31/functions/FunctionName/code HTTP/1.1 Content-type: application/json { "Publish": boolean, "S3Bucket": "string", "S3Key": "string", "S3ObjectVersion": "string", "ZipFile": blob }

URI Request Parameters

The request requires the following URI parameters.

FunctionName

The existing Lambda function name whose code you want to replace.

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-_]+))?

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

Publish

This boolean parameter can be used to request AWS Lambda to update the Lambda function and publish a version as an atomic operation.

Type: Boolean

Required: No

S3Bucket

Amazon S3 bucket name where the .zip file containing your deployment package is stored. This bucket must reside in the same AWS Region where you are creating the Lambda function.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 3. Maximum length of 63.

Pattern: ^[0-9A-Za-z\.\-_]*(?<!\.)$

Required: No

S3Key

The Amazon S3 object (the deployment package) key name you want to upload.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1024.

Required: No

S3ObjectVersion

The Amazon S3 object (the deployment package) version you want to upload.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1024.

Required: No

ZipFile

The contents of your zip file containing your deployment package. If you are using the web API directly, the contents of the zip file must be base64-encoded. If you are using the AWS SDKs or the AWS CLI, the SDKs or CLI will do the encoding for you. For more information about creating a .zip file, see Execution Permissions in the AWS Lambda Developer Guide.

Type: Base64-encoded binary data object

Required: No

Response Syntax

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.

CodeSha256

It is the SHA256 hash of your function deployment package.

Type: String

CodeSize

The size, in bytes, of the function .zip file you uploaded.

Type: Long

DeadLetterConfig

The parent object that contains the target Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an Amazon SQS queue or Amazon SNS topic.

Type: DeadLetterConfig object

Description

The user-provided description.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 256.

Environment

The parent object that contains your environment's configuration settings.

Type: EnvironmentResponse object

FunctionArn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) assigned to the function.

Type: String

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

FunctionName

The name of the function. 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.

Type: String

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-_]+))?

Handler

The function Lambda calls to begin executing your function.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: [^\s]+

KMSKeyArn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the KMS key used to encrypt your function's environment variables. If empty, it means you are using the AWS Lambda default service key.

Type: String

Pattern: (arn:aws:[a-z0-9-.]+:.*)|()

LastModified

The time stamp of the last time you updated the function.

Type: String

MemorySize

The memory size, in MB, you configured for the function. Must be a multiple of 64 MB.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 128. Maximum value of 1536.

Role

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the IAM role that Lambda assumes when it executes your function to access any other Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources.

Type: String

Pattern: arn:aws:iam::\d{12}:role/?[a-zA-Z_0-9+=,.@\-_/]+

Runtime

The runtime environment for the Lambda function.

Type: String

Valid Values: nodejs | nodejs4.3 | nodejs6.10 | java8 | python2.7 | dotnetcore1.0 | nodejs4.3-edge

Timeout

The function execution time at which Lambda should terminate the function. Because the execution time has cost implications, we recommend you set this value based on your expected execution time. The default is 3 seconds.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1.

The version of the Lambda function.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1024.

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

ServiceException

The AWS Lambda service encountered an internal error.

HTTP Status Code: 500
