LambdaExecutionParameters - AWS IoT Greengrass


Contains parameters for a Lambda function that runs on AWS IoT Greengrass.



The map of environment variables that are available to the Lambda function when it runs.

Type: String to string map

Key Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1.

Required: No


The list of event sources to which to subscribe to receive work messages. The Lambda function runs when it receives a message from an event source. You can subscribe this function to local publish/subscribe messages and AWS IoT Core MQTT messages.

Type: Array of LambdaEventSource objects

Required: No


The list of arguments to pass to the Lambda function when it runs.

Type: Array of strings

Required: No


The encoding type that the Lambda function supports.

Default: json

Type: String

Valid Values: json | binary

Required: No


The parameters for the Linux process that contains the Lambda function.

Type: LambdaLinuxProcessParams object

Required: No


The maximum amount of time in seconds that a non-pinned Lambda function can idle before the AWS IoT Greengrass Core software stops its process.

Type: Integer

Required: No


The maximum number of instances that a non-pinned Lambda function can run at the same time.

Type: Integer

Required: No


The maximum size of the message queue for the Lambda function component. The AWS IoT Greengrass core stores messages in a FIFO (first-in-first-out) queue until it can run the Lambda function to consume each message.

Type: Integer

Required: No


Whether or not the Lambda function is pinned, or long-lived.

  • A pinned Lambda function starts when AWS IoT Greengrass starts and keeps running in its own container.

  • A non-pinned Lambda function starts only when it receives a work item and exists after it idles for maxIdleTimeInSeconds. If the function has multiple work items, the AWS IoT Greengrass Core software creates multiple instances of the function.

Default: true

Type: Boolean

Required: No


The interval in seconds at which a pinned (also known as long-lived) Lambda function component sends status updates to the Lambda manager component.

Type: Integer

Required: No


The maximum amount of time in seconds that the Lambda function can process a work item.

Type: Integer

Required: No
