create-component-version

Description

Creates a component. Components are software that run on AWS IoT Greengrass core devices. After you develop and test a component on your core device, you can use this operation to upload your component to AWS IoT Greengrass. Then, you can deploy the component to other core devices.

You can use this operation to do the following:

  • Create components from recipes Create a component from a recipe, which is a file that defines the component's metadata, parameters, dependencies, lifecycle, artifacts, and platform capability. For more information, see AWS IoT Greengrass component recipe reference in the AWS IoT Greengrass V2 Developer Guide . To create a component from a recipe, specify inlineRecipe when you call this operation.
  • Create components from Lambda functions Create a component from an AWS Lambda function that runs on AWS IoT Greengrass. This creates a recipe and artifacts from the Lambda function's deployment package. You can use this operation to migrate Lambda functions from AWS IoT Greengrass V1 to AWS IoT Greengrass V2. This function only accepts Lambda functions that use the following runtimes:
    • Python 2.7 – python2.7
    • Python 3.7 – python3.7
    • Python 3.8 – python3.8
    • Java 8 – java8
    • Node.js 10 – nodejs10.x
    • Node.js 12 – nodejs12.x

To create a component from a Lambda function, specify lambdaFunction when you call this operation.

Synopsis

  create-component-version
[--inline-recipe <value>]
[--lambda-function <value>]
[--tags <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--inline-recipe (blob)

The recipe to use to create the component. The recipe defines the component's metadata, parameters, dependencies, lifecycle, artifacts, and platform compatibility.

You must specify either inlineRecipe or lambdaFunction .

--lambda-function (structure)

The parameters to create a component from a Lambda function.

You must specify either inlineRecipe or lambdaFunction .

lambdaArn -> (string)

The ARN of the Lambda function. The ARN must include the version of the function to import. You can't use version aliases like $LATEST .

componentName -> (string)

The name of the component.

Defaults to the name of the Lambda function.

componentVersion -> (string)

The version of the component.

Defaults to the version of the Lambda function as a semantic version. For example, if your function version is 3 , the component version becomes 3.0.0 .

componentPlatforms -> (list)

The platforms that the component version supports.

(structure)

Contains information about a platform that a component supports.

name -> (string)

The friendly name of the platform. This name helps you identify the platform.

If you omit this parameter, AWS IoT Greengrass creates a friendly name from the os and architecture of the platform.

attributes -> (map)

A dictionary of attributes for the platform. The AWS IoT Greengrass Core software defines the os and platform by default. You can specify additional platform attributes for a core device when you deploy the AWS IoT Greengrass nucleus component. For more information, see the AWS IoT Greengrass nucleus component in the AWS IoT Greengrass V2 Developer Guide .

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

componentDependencies -> (map)

The component versions on which this Lambda function component depends.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

Contains information about a component dependency for a Lambda function component.

versionRequirement -> (string)

The component version requirement for the component dependency.

AWS IoT Greengrass V2 uses semantic version constraints. For more information, see Semantic Versioning .

dependencyType -> (string)

The type of this dependency. Choose from the following options:

  • SOFT – The component doesn't restart if the dependency changes state.
  • HARD – The component restarts if the dependency changes state.

Default: HARD

componentLambdaParameters -> (structure)

The system and runtime parameters for the Lambda function as it runs on the AWS IoT Greengrass core device.

eventSources -> (list)

The list of event sources to which to subscribe to receive work messages. The Lambda function runs when it receives a message from an event source. You can subscribe this function to local publish/subscribe messages and AWS IoT Core MQTT messages.

(structure)

Contains information about an event source for an AWS Lambda function. The event source defines the topics on which this Lambda function subscribes to receive messages that run the function.

topic -> (string)

The topic to which to subscribe to receive event messages.

type -> (string)

The type of event source. Choose from the following options:

  • PUB_SUB – Subscribe to local publish/subscribe messages. This event source type doesn't support MQTT wildcards (+ and # ) in the event source topic.
  • IOT_CORE – Subscribe to AWS IoT Core MQTT messages. This event source type supports MQTT wildcards (+ and # ) in the event source topic.

maxQueueSize -> (integer)

The maximum size of the message queue for the Lambda function component. The AWS IoT Greengrass core stores messages in a FIFO (first-in-first-out) queue until it can run the Lambda function to consume each message.

maxInstancesCount -> (integer)

The maximum number of instances that a non-pinned Lambda function can run at the same time.

maxIdleTimeInSeconds -> (integer)

The maximum amount of time in seconds that a non-pinned Lambda function can idle before the AWS IoT Greengrass Core software stops its process.

timeoutInSeconds -> (integer)

The maximum amount of time in seconds that the Lambda function can process a work item.

statusTimeoutInSeconds -> (integer)

The interval in seconds at which a pinned (also known as long-lived) Lambda function component sends status updates to the Lambda manager component.

pinned -> (boolean)

Whether or not the Lambda function is pinned, or long-lived.

  • A pinned Lambda function starts when AWS IoT Greengrass starts and keeps running in its own container.
  • A non-pinned Lambda function starts only when it receives a work item and exists after it idles for maxIdleTimeInSeconds . If the function has multiple work items, the AWS IoT Greengrass Core software creates multiple instances of the function.

Default: true

inputPayloadEncodingType -> (string)

The encoding type that the Lambda function supports.

Default: json

execArgs -> (list)

The list of arguments to pass to the Lambda function when it runs.

(string)

environmentVariables -> (map)

The map of environment variables that are available to the Lambda function when it runs.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

linuxProcessParams -> (structure)

The parameters for the Linux process that contains the Lambda function.

isolationMode -> (string)

The isolation mode for the process that contains the Lambda function. The process can run in an isolated runtime environment inside the AWS IoT Greengrass container, or as a regular process outside any container.

Default: GreengrassContainer

containerParams -> (structure)

The parameters for the container in which the Lambda function runs.

memorySizeInKB -> (integer)

Whether or not the container can read information from the device's /sys folder.

Default: false

volumes -> (list)

destinationPath -> (string)

The path to the logical volume in the file system.

permission -> (string)

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

Examples

Example 1: To create a component version from a recipe

The following create-component-version example creates a version of a Hello World component from a recipe file.

aws greengrassv2 create-component-version \
    --inline-recipe fileb://com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.json

Contents of com.example.HelloWorld-1.0.0.json:
