Description

Warning

Invokes a function asynchronously.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  invoke-async
--function-name <value>
--invoke-args <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--function-name (string)

The name of the Lambda function.

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

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

--invoke-args (blob)

The JSON that you want to provide to your Lambda function as input.

--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.
