AWS Serverless Application Model
Developer Guide

sam package

Packages an AWS SAM application. It creates a ZIP file of your code and dependencies, and uploads it to Amazon S3. It then returns a copy of your AWS SAM template, replacing references to local artifacts with the Amazon S3 location where the command uploaded the artifacts.

Note

sam deploy now implicitly performs the functionality of sam package. You can use the sam deploy command directly to package and deploy your application.

Usage:

sam package [OPTIONS] [ARGS]...

Options:

Option Description
--template-file PATH The path where your AWS SAM template is located. Default: template.[yaml|yml].
--s3-bucket TEXT The name of the S3 bucket where this command uploads the artifacts that are referenced in your template. Required.
--s3-prefix TEXT Prefix added to the artifacts name that are uploaded to the Amazon S3 bucket. The prefix name is a path name (folder name) for the Amazon S3 bucket.
--kms-key-id TEXT The ID of an AWS KMS key used to encrypt artifacts that are at rest in the Amazon S3 bucket.
--output-template-file PATH The path to the file where the command writes the packaged template. If you don't specify a path, the command writes the template to the standard output.
--use-json Output JSON for the AWS CloudFormation template. YAML is used by default.
--force-upload Override existing files in the Amazon S3 bucket. Specify this flag to upload artifacts even if they match existing artifacts in the Amazon S3 bucket.
--metadata A map of metadata to attach to all artifacts that are referenced in your template. Optional.
--profile TEXT Select a specific profile from your credential file to get AWS credentials.
--region TEXT Sets the AWS Region of the service (for example, us-east-1).
--debug Turns on debug logging.
--help Shows this message and exits.

Note

If the AWS SAM template contains a Metadata section for ServerlessRepo, and the LicenseUrl or ReadmeUrl properties contain references to local files, you must update AWS CLI to version 1.16.77 or later. For more information about the Metadata section of AWS SAM templates and publishing applications with AWS SAM CLI, see Publishing Serverless Applications Using the AWS SAM CLI.
