Options

--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 is limited to 64 characters in length.

--name (string)

The name of the alias.

--function-version (string)

The function version that the alias invokes.

--description (string)

A description of the alias.

--routing-config (structure)

The routing configuration of the alias.

AdditionalVersionWeights -> (map)

The second version, and the percentage of traffic that's routed to it.

key -> (string)

value -> (double)

Shorthand Syntax:

AdditionalVersionWeights={KeyName1=double,KeyName2=double}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "AdditionalVersionWeights": {"string": double
    ...}
}

--revision-id (string)

Only update the alias if the revision ID matches the ID that's specified. Use this option to avoid modifying an alias that has changed since you last read it.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To update a function alias

The following update-alias example updates the alias named LIVE to point to version 3 of the my-function Lambda function.

aws lambda update-alias \
    --function-name my-function \
    --function-version 3 \
    --name LIVE

Output:

{
    "FunctionVersion": "3",
    "Name": "LIVE",
    "AliasArn": "arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123456789012:function:my-function:LIVE",
    "RevisionId": "594f41fb-b85f-4c20-95c7-6ca5f2a92c93",
    "Description": "alias for live version of function"
}
