[ aws . lambda ]



Returns the resource policy associated with the specified Lambda function.

If you are using the versioning feature, you can get the resource policy associated with the specific Lambda function version or alias by specifying the version or alias name using the qualifier parameter. For more information about versioning, see AWS Lambda Function Versioning and Aliases .

You need permission for the lambda:GetPolicy action.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

--function-name (string)

Function name whose resource policy you want to retrieve.

You can specify the 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 ). If you are using versioning, you can also provide a qualified function ARN (ARN that is qualified with function version or alias name as suffix). AWS Lambda also allows you to specify only the function name with the account ID qualifier (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.

--qualifier (string)

You can specify this optional query parameter to specify a function version or an alias name in which case this API will return all permissions associated with the specific qualified ARN. If you don't provide this parameter, the API will return permissions that apply to the unqualified function ARN.

--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.

--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.


Policy -> (string)

The resource policy associated with the specified function. The response returns the same as a string using a backslash ("") as an escape character in the JSON.

RevisionId -> (string)

Represents the latest updated revision of the function or alias.
