AWS::Serverless::LayerVersion - AWS Serverless Application Model

AWS::Serverless::LayerVersion

Creates a Lambda LayerVersion that contains library or runtime code needed by a Lambda Function.

The AWS::Serverless::LayerVersion resource also supports the Metadata resource attribute, so you can instruct AWS SAM to build layers included in your application. For more information about building layers, see Building layers.

Important Note: Since the release of the UpdateReplacePolicy resource attribute in AWS CloudFormation, AWS::Lambda::LayerVersion (recommended) offers the same benefits as AWS::Serverless::LayerVersion.

When a Serverless LayerVersion is transformed, SAM also transforms the logical id of the resource so that old LayerVersions are not automatically deleted by CloudFormation when the resource is updated.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) template, use the following syntax.

YAML

Type: AWS::Serverless::LayerVersion Properties: CompatibleRuntimes: List ContentUri: String | LayerContent Description: String LayerName: String LicenseInfo: String RetentionPolicy: String

Properties

CompatibleRuntimes

List of runtimes compatible with this LayerVersion.

Type: List

Required: No

AWS CloudFormation compatibility: This property is passed directly to the CompatibleRuntimes property of an AWS::Lambda::LayerVersion resource.

ContentUri

AWS S3 Uri, local file path, or LayerContent object of the layer code.

If an AWS S3 Uri or LayerContent object is provided, The AWS S3 object referenced must be a valid ZIP archive that contains the contents of an AWS Lambda layer.

If a local file path is provided, the template must go through the workflow that includes the sam deploy or sam package command, in order for the content to be transformed properly.

Type: String | LayerContent

Required: Yes

AWS CloudFormation compatibility: This property is similar to the Content property of an AWS::Lambda::LayerVersion resource. The nested Amazon S3 properties are named differently.

Description

Description of this layer.

Type: String

Required: No

AWS CloudFormation compatibility: This property is passed directly to the Description property of an AWS::Lambda::LayerVersion resource.

LayerName

The name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the layer.

Type: String

Required: No

Default: Resource logical id

AWS CloudFormation compatibility: This property is similar to the LayerName property of an AWS::Lambda::LayerVersion resource. If you don't specify a name, the logical id of the resource will be used as the name.

LicenseInfo

Information about the license for this LayerVersion.

Type: String

Required: No

AWS CloudFormation compatibility: This property is passed directly to the LicenseInfo property of an AWS::Lambda::LayerVersion resource.

RetentionPolicy

Specifies whether old versions of your LayerVersion are retained or deleted after an update.

Supported values: Retain and Delete.

Type: String

Required: No

AWS CloudFormation compatibility: This property is unique to AWS SAM and doesn't have an AWS CloudFormation equivalent.

Additional Notes: When you specify Retain, AWS SAM adds a Resource Attribute of DeletionPolicy: Retain to the transformed AWS::Lambda::LayerVersion resource.

Return Values

Ref

When the logical ID of this resource is provided to the Ref intrinsic function, it returns the resource ARN of the underlying Lambda LayerVersion.

For more information about using the Ref function, see Ref in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.
