Package the AWS SAM application - AWS CodeDeploy

Package the AWS SAM application

You should now have four files in your SAM-Tutorial directory:

  • beforeAllowTraffic.js

  • afterAllowTraffic.js

  • myDateTimeFunction.js

  • template.yml

You are now ready to use the AWS SAM sam package command to create and package artifacts for your Lambda functions and CodeDeploy application. The artifacts are uploaded to an S3 bucket. The output of the command is a new file called package.yml. This file is used by the AWS SAM sam deploy command in the next step.


The sam package command is an alias for the aws cloudformation package AWS CLI command. For more information, see package in the AWS CloudFormation CLI Reference.

In the SAM-Tutorial directory, run the following.

sam package \ --template-file template.yml \ --output-template-file package.yml \ --s3-bucket your-S3-bucket

For the s3-bucket parameter, specify the Amazon S3 bucket you created as a prerequisite for this tutorial. The output-template-file specifies the name of the new file that is used by the AWS SAM sam deploy command.
