create-event-source-mapping

Description

Creates a mapping between an event source and an AWS Lambda function. Lambda reads items from the event source and triggers the function.

For details about each event source type, see the following topics.

The following error handling options are only available for stream sources (DynamoDB and Kinesis):

  • BisectBatchOnFunctionError - If the function returns an error, split the batch in two and retry.
  • DestinationConfig - Send discarded records to an Amazon SQS queue or Amazon SNS topic.
  • MaximumRecordAgeInSeconds - Discard records older than the specified age. The default value is infinite (-1). When set to infinite (-1), failed records are retried until the record expires
  • MaximumRetryAttempts - Discard records after the specified number of retries. The default value is infinite (-1). When set to infinite (-1), failed records are retried until the record expires.
  • ParallelizationFactor - Process multiple batches from each shard concurrently.

Options

--event-source-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the event source.

  • Amazon Kinesis - The ARN of the data stream or a stream consumer.
  • Amazon DynamoDB Streams - The ARN of the stream.
  • Amazon Simple Queue Service - The ARN of the queue.
  • Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka - The ARN of the cluster.

--function-name (string)

The name of the Lambda function.

Name formats
  • Function name - MyFunction .
  • Function ARN - arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123456789012:function:MyFunction .

  • Partial ARN - 123456789012:function:MyFunction .

The length constraint applies only to the full ARN. If you specify only the function name, it's limited to 64 characters in length.

--enabled | --no-enabled (boolean)

If true, the event source mapping is active. Set to false to pause polling and invocation.

--batch-size (integer)

--source-access-configurations (list)

(MQ) The Secrets Manager secret that stores your broker credentials. To store your secret, use the following format: { "username": "your username", "password": "your password" }

To reference the secret, use the following format: [ { "Type": "BASIC_AUTH", "URI": "secretARN" } ]

The value of Type is always BASIC_AUTH . To encrypt the secret, you can use customer or service managed keys. When using a customer managed KMS key, the Lambda execution role requires kms:Decrypt permissions.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create a mapping between an event source and an AWS Lambda function

The following create-event-source-mapping example creates a mapping between an SQS queue and the my-function Lambda function.

aws lambda create-event-source-mapping \
    --function-name my-function \
    --batch-size 5 \
    --event-source-arn arn:aws:sqs:us-west-2:123456789012:mySQSqueue

Output:

{
    "UUID": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-11111EXAMPLE",
