RemovePermission

Revokes function-use permission from an AWS service or another account. You can get the ID of the statement from the output of GetPolicy.

Request Syntax

DELETE /2015-03-31/functions/FunctionName/policy/StatementId?Qualifier=Qualifier&RevisionId=RevisionId HTTP/1.1

URI Request Parameters

The request requires the following URI parameters.

FunctionName

The name of the Lambda function, version, or alias.

Name formats

  • Function name - my-function (name-only), my-function:v1 (with alias).

  • Function ARN - arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:123456789012:function:my-function.

  • Partial ARN - 123456789012:function:my-function.

You can append a version number or alias to any of the formats. The length constraint applies only to the full ARN. If you specify only the function name, it is limited to 64 characters in length.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 140.

Pattern: (arn:(aws[a-zA-Z-]*)?:lambda:)?([a-z]{2}(-gov)?-[a-z]+-\d{1}:)?(\d{12}:)?(function:)?([a-zA-Z0-9-_]+)(:(\$LATEST|[a-zA-Z0-9-_]+))?

Qualifier

Specify a version or alias to remove permissions from a published version of the function.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: (|[a-zA-Z0-9$_-]+)

RevisionId

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

StatementId

Statement ID of the permission to remove.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 100.

Pattern: ([a-zA-Z0-9-_.]+)

Request Body

The request does not have a request body.

Response Syntax

HTTP/1.1 204

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 204 response with an empty HTTP body.
