AWS::SES::ReceiptRule LambdaAction

When included in a receipt rule, this action calls an AWS Lambda function and, optionally, publishes a notification to Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS).

To enable Amazon SES to call your AWS Lambda function or to publish to an Amazon SNS topic of another account, Amazon SES must have permission to access those resources. For information about giving permissions, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.

For information about using AWS Lambda actions in receipt rules, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "FunctionArn" : String, "InvocationType" : String, "TopicArn" : String }

YAML

FunctionArn: String InvocationType: String TopicArn: String

Properties

FunctionArn

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the AWS Lambda function. An example of an AWS Lambda function ARN is arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:account-id:function:MyFunction. For more information about AWS Lambda, see the AWS Lambda Developer Guide.

Required: Yes

Type: String

InvocationType

The invocation type of the AWS Lambda function. An invocation type of RequestResponse means that the execution of the function immediately results in a response, and a value of Event means that the function is invoked asynchronously. The default value is Event. For information about AWS Lambda invocation types, see the AWS Lambda Developer Guide.

Important

There is a 30-second timeout on RequestResponse invocations. You should use Event invocation in most cases. Use RequestResponse only when you want to make a mail flow decision, such as whether to stop the receipt rule or the receipt rule set.
