S3Bucket -> (string)

The Amazon S3 bucket of the layer archive.

S3Key -> (string)

The Amazon S3 key of the layer archive.

S3ObjectVersion -> (string)

For versioned objects, the version of the layer archive object to use.

Shorthand Syntax:

S3Bucket=string,S3Key=string,S3ObjectVersion=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "S3Bucket": "string",
  "S3Key": "string",
  "S3ObjectVersion": "string"
}

--license-info (string)

The layer's software license. It can be any of the following:

  • An SPDX license identifier . For example, MIT .
  • The URL of a license hosted on the internet. For example, https://opensource.org/licenses/MIT .
  • The full text of the license.

--zip-file (blob)

The path to the zip file of the content you are uploading. Specify --zip-file or --content, but not both. Example: fileb://content.zip

--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 Lambda layer version

The following publish-layer-version example creates a new Python library layer version. The command retrieves the layer content a file named layer.zip in the specified S3 bucket.

aws lambda publish-layer-version \
    --layer-name my-layer \
    --description "My Python layer" \
    --license-info "MIT" \
    --content S3Bucket=lambda-layers-us-west-2-123456789012,S3Key=layer.zip \
    --compatible-runtimes python3.6 python3.7

Output:
