AWS::Lambda::Version - AWS CloudFormation


The AWS::Lambda::Version resource creates a version from the current code and configuration of a function. Use versions to create a snapshot of your function code and configuration that doesn't change.


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


{ "Type" : "AWS::Lambda::Version", "Properties" : { "CodeSha256" : String, "Description" : String, "FunctionName" : String, "ProvisionedConcurrencyConfig" : ProvisionedConcurrencyConfiguration, "RuntimePolicy" : RuntimePolicy } }



Only publish a version if the hash value matches the value that's specified. Use this option to avoid publishing a version if the function code has changed since you last updated it. Updates are not supported for this property.

Required: No

Type: String

Return values


When you pass the logical ID of this resource to the intrinsic Ref function, Ref returns the ARN of the version, such as arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123456789012:function:helloworld:1.

For more information about using the Ref function, see Ref.


The Fn::GetAtt intrinsic function returns a value for a specified attribute of this type. The following are the available attributes and sample return values.
