Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

AWS::Lambda::Function RuntimeManagementConfig

Sets the runtime management configuration for a function's version. For more information, see Runtime updates.


To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "RuntimeVersionArn" : String, "UpdateRuntimeOn" : String }


RuntimeVersionArn: String UpdateRuntimeOn: String



The ARN of the runtime version you want the function to use.


This is only required if you're using the Manual runtime update mode.

Required: No

Type: String

Pattern: ^arn:(aws[a-zA-Z-]*):lambda:[a-z]{2}((-gov)|(-iso(b?)))?-[a-z]+-\d{1}::runtime:.+$

Minimum: 26

Maximum: 2048

Update requires: No interruption


Specify the runtime update mode.

  • Auto (default) - Automatically update to the most recent and secure runtime version using a Two-phase runtime version rollout. This is the best choice for most customers to ensure they always benefit from runtime updates.

  • FunctionUpdate - Lambda updates the runtime of you function to the most recent and secure runtime version when you update your function. This approach synchronizes runtime updates with function deployments, giving you control over when runtime updates are applied and allowing you to detect and mitigate rare runtime update incompatibilities early. When using this setting, you need to regularly update your functions to keep their runtime up-to-date.

  • Manual - You specify a runtime version in your function configuration. The function will use this runtime version indefinitely. In the rare case where a new runtime version is incompatible with an existing function, this allows you to roll back your function to an earlier runtime version. For more information, see Roll back a runtime version.
