Container for the parameters to the GetPolicy operation. Returns the resource policy associated with the specified Lambda function.

If you are using the versioning feature, you can get the resource policy associated with the specific Lambda function version or alias by specifying the version or alias name using the Qualifier parameter. For more information about versioning, see AWS Lambda Function Versioning and Aliases.

You need permission for the lambda:GetPolicy action.

public class GetPolicyRequest : AmazonLambdaRequest

The GetPolicyRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method GetPolicyRequest()


Public Property FunctionName System.String

Gets and sets the property FunctionName.

Function name whose resource policy you want to retrieve.

You can specify the function name (for example, Thumbnail) or you can specify Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the function (for example, arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:account-id:function:ThumbNail). If you are using versioning, you can also provide a qualified function ARN (ARN that is qualified with function version or alias name as suffix). AWS Lambda also allows you to specify only the function name with the account ID qualifier (for example, account-id:Thumbnail). Note that the length constraint applies only to the ARN. If you specify only the function name, it is limited to 64 characters in length.

Public Property Qualifier System.String

Gets and sets the property Qualifier.

You can specify this optional query parameter to specify a function version or an alias name in which case this API will return all permissions associated with the specific qualified ARN. If you don't provide this parameter, the API will return permissions that apply to the unqualified function ARN.


This operation retrieves a Lambda function policy

To retrieve a Lambda function policy

var response = client.GetPolicy(new GetPolicyRequest 
    FunctionName = "myFunction",
    Qualifier = "1"

string policy = response.Policy;
