Prerequisite tasks

This topic is part of a tutorial that demonstrates how to invoke a Lambda function using Amazon CloudWatch scheduled events using the AWS SDK for JavaScript. To start at the beginning of the tutorial, see Creating scheduled events to execute AWS Lambda functions.

To set up and run this example, you must first complete these tasks:

  • Set up the project environment to run these Node TypeScript examples, and install the required AWS SDK for JavaScript and third-party modules. Follow the instructions on GitHub.

  • Create a shared configurations file with your user credentials. For more information about providing a credentials JSON file, see Loading credentials in Node.js from the shared credentials file.


This example uses CommonJS sytax, as Lambda does not currently support ECMAScript 6 (ES6) syntax. For more information, see JavaScript ES6/CommonJS syntax
